Barking Bullfrog on Track to Open in June
Family oriented sports bar-grill is renovating space at Bennett's Corners
A new restaurant slated for the southeast part of Strongsville is on target for a June 1 opening.
Renovations are on track at the Barking Bullfrog, a family oriented bar and grill that will take over the former Video Express store at Bennett's Corners, according to owner Jay Bloesinger.
"I got the liquor license two days ago," Bloesinger said. "Thing are coming along very well."
Bloesinger, who owns Master Italian Pizzeria on West 130th Street, is taking over the vacant store next door to expand his restaurant into a full-service sports-themed grill that will feature "real good food and a fun atmosphere."
"It's something this area really needs," said Bloesinger, who has operated Master Pizzeria in the Rego's shopping center for two years. "It'll be a place to take the family, relax and have a burger or some pizza."
He said it will feature free popcorn, "ridiculously oversized portions" and eight 42-inch TVs, plus a 96-inch high-definition projector to show sports.
The 3,000-square-foot restaurant will seat about 100 and will be connected with a walkway to the pizza shop.
Bloesinger said he's been getting great feedback from people.
"It seems like customers are just as anxious for it to open as I am," he said.
