Betts Restaurant to replace Parker’s Downtown –

Restaurant News

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Betts Restaurant is scheduled to open next month on the ground floor of the Kimpton Schofield Hotel.

The restaurant on East 9th Street is in the space formerly occupied by Parker’s Downtown. Opening date is slated for Thursday, Aug. 6.

The menu’s emphasis will be on American dishes.

The interior space will encompass what a rep for the restaurant calls “distinctive craftsmanship details” and include a custom penny tile wall, where coffee and cocktails are served to go. Private dining can be accommodated.

The restaurant will be open for indoor and patio dining for lunch and dinner, weekday breakfast and weekend brunch with a menu that covers vegan, gluten-free, keto, dairy-free and vegetarian diets.

A 24/7 grab-and-go menu will be available for hotel guests and passersby.

Executive chef is Rob Stauch, who previously worked at Blue Point Grille in Cleveland’s Warehouse District and the now-closed The Grille Above the Valley in Garfield Heights.

Betts’ menu will feature locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible.

“It’s easy for people to eat healthy here, but if you want a burger we have that, too,” Stauch said in a release.

The other Parker’s – Parker’s Grille and Tavern in Avon Lake, run by James and Victoria Mowbrey – will remain open.

“Betts” is a tribute to Elizabeth Schofield, a 19th-century community leader whose husband, Levi Schofield, became a prominent architect. His designs include the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument as well as the Schofield Building.
