Roost American to become Roost Events

The owner of Roost American restaurant at 580 Lincoln Park Blvd. adjacent to Fraze Pavilion in Kettering announced tonight, Oct. 31, that the restaurant would cease regular dinner service and change into a special-event and Fraze-concert-season-only venue, effective immediately.

“We have appreciated the support of the Roost American restaurant from our regular customer base but feel this will better serve the community as a whole,” Roost founder Dana Downs said in a release.

Downs said the restaurant will be open to the public for meals on major holidays, including Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Mother’s Day, and Easter, as well as during the Fraze concert season and for “pop-up” dinners.
The move has no impact on Roost Italian in Dayton’s Oregon District, where “operations have not been altered,” Downs said.

Roost American employees have been offered shifts at Roost Italian and have been encouraged to be part of the Roost American special-events team, Downs said. The chef-owner of Roost said she started her career with private catering events, “and this goes hand in hand with her vast experience and meeting the needs of our customer base.”

The Kettering space has been home to multiple restaurant concepts, including Harbor Lights, Lincoln Park Grille, Norton’s, Pavilion Grille, and The Tropics, which closed at the end of 2014. Downs opened the restaurant as Park City Club in late 2015, and changed its name to Roost American February 2017 to align it with its sister restaurant in Dayton. Roost Italian — formerly Roost Modern Italian — opened about six years ago at 524 E. Fifth St.

Booking of events at both Roost restaurants can be arranged by calling (937) 222-3100 or emailing events manager Brian Sharp at
