The Cafeo Hospitality Group, known for Jefferson Social (The Banks) and Incline Public House (Price Hill), is planning to open a casual hand-crafted burger restaurant on Main St.

The southwest corner of Main and C Streets will soon be transformed into a destination for hand-crafted burgers and cocktails. The new restaurant, Billy Yanks, is named for the famous sculpture on top of the Butler County Soldiers, Sailors, and Pioneers Monument, which stands as an icon of the city.

Billy Yanks will be the latest addition to the Cafeo Hospitality Group’s already impressive list of restaurants and entertainment venues including Jefferson Social, Incline Public House, Press on Monmouth, Somm Wine Bar, and The Bell Event Centre. Cafeo management brings over twenty years of proven success with some of the most recognizable and highest performing venues in Greater Cincinnati.

“Since 1995, The Cafeo Hospitality Group has been focused on creating destination venues in growing communities like Hamilton, Ohio,” said Tony Cafeo, Co-owner of The Cafeo Hospitality Group. “Our group was an integral part of the revitalization of Main Street in Over-the-Rhine and, presently, the ongoing revitalization of East Price Hill. We have an appreciation for craft beer and classic comfort food with a unique spin. Our goal is to provide a unique local community gathering place for the residents of Hamilton and the region as a whole.”

Billy Yanks is just the latest development in Hamilton’s renaissance. Recently, other high-profile Greater Cincinnati restaurants have found a home in Hamilton, including Tano Bistro, The Casual Pint, and the upcoming Fretboard Brewing & Public House.

“We are thrilled to announce that yet another great restaurant is investing in Hamilton,” said City Manager Joshua Smith. “The fact that Cafeo Hospitality Group chose Hamilton to open their newest location signals that our community is becoming a regional destination. Billy Yanks will be a great addition to our Main Street Business District.”

Some example menu items that people can expect at Billy Yanks include:

  • Unique specialty burgers and a build-your-own custom menu
  • Signature mac & cheese in a variety of flavor combinations
  • One-of-a-kind selection of appetizers, desserts, fresh soups, and salads, along with a robust sandwich offering

Billy Yanks is projected to be open for business in spring 2020.
