With a long history of serving Italian fare in Dayton, maybe it’s time for Caffe Anticoli to come back to their roots on E. Fifth Street:
Next year, 2011, will mark the 80th consecutive year Anticoli’s/Caffe Anticoli has been in business in the Dayton area, but Anticoli noted that the eight decades included three different locations: from 1931 to 1951, on East Fifth Street in the St. Anne’s Hill District of Dayton; 1951 to 2000 on Salem Avenue in north Dayton; and from 2000 to 2010 at its current location in Clayton.
There are at least two open restaurant locations on E. Fifth Street- the former Blue Moon/John Henry’s and the former Chin’s in the Parking Garage. Other options include the former Grayhound station location or the Gem City Records space. Fifth Street would love to have you back. Sometimes going back to your roots is the best thing a well established brand can do.
