De’Lish touts ‘happier’ happy hour


Just when you thought the holiday season couldn’t get any better, De’Lish Cafe decides to make it “happier.”

Touting an “all new menu,” “all new prices” and an “all new De’Lish,” the eatery located at 139 N. Main St. in downtown Dayton mailed fliers making potential patrons aware of “The Happier Happy Hour.” From 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, De’Lish offers diners daily food and drink specials for $5 or less. Food items include buffalo shrimp, asparagus fries, quesadillas, tacos, burgers and lemon pepper wings.

“There’s great value and variety for the price,” said patron Toni Jones of Springboro. “These aren’t your average happy hour finger foods.”

Co-owner Jasmine Brown said the mailers and radio promotions only began a couple of weeks ago.

“The ‘happier happy hour’ is geared toward people who already live or work downtown,” she said, allowing for easy access to the restaurant because, “they can walk to it.”

Brown said she and co-owner Fran Hutson “switched it up a bit” by adding the shrimp and burger options in an effort to make the happy hour happier.

According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, it specializes “in the broad and diverse American Eclectic cuisine, the kitchen’s motto is ‘We Cook Food!’”

They expect to send out another round of fliers to promote the happy hour at the beginning of the year, and they are always considering new specials, Brown said.

Although the restaurant’s website is currently under construction, they do have a presence on Facebook and Twitter. To RSVP for large reservations call 937-461-CAFE (2233).

Much less expected would be George Lazenby, who played 007 once in 1969’s “On Her Majesty&rsquo...
