Yard House to open at The Banks Mar. 24, hiring 200+

Yard House, an Irvine, California-based upscale-casual restaurant featuring American fusion fare and 160 taps of craft ales and lagers, is opening March 24 at The Banks – and it's looking to fill more than 200 positions.

The restaurant has opened a hiring center at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center's North Star Café and is accepting in-person applications for positions ranging from servers, bartenders, bussers and hosts to line cooks, prep cooks, dishwashers and barbacks.

"We are thrilled to bring Yard House to The Banks because it is a perfect location tucked between the football stadium and ballpark in the heart of downtown Cincinnati," said Harald Herrmann, president of Yard House Restaurants, in a prepared release. "We want to hire locally and are looking to employ people with all levels of experience and skills, but, more importantly, we want team members who are willing to work hard and be rewarded for it."

Applications will be accepted through March 1.

Cincinnati's is the 44th restaurant in the Yard House chain and the first in Ohio.

The restaurant joins Crave, Holy Grail, Johnny Rocket's, Mahogany's at The Banks, Orange Leaf, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Tin Roof, Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill, and the recently-opened WG Kitchen & Bar as a dining option at The Banks development.

This spring, the development team of Carter and The Dawson Company plans to break ground on Phase 2 of The Banks, adding approximately 300 apartments and 60,000 square feet of retail to the block bounded by Freedom Way and Vine (Rosa Parks), W Second, and Race streets.
