Hyde Park Group to take over Sushi Rock space on the Cap


The Hyde Park Group is commandeering more space on the Cap.

The Cleveland-based restaurant company is taking over the former Sushi Rock location on the east side of High Street, a company official confirmed this week.

Rick Hauck, a founding partner of Hyde Park Group, said the restaurant will be a new concept for the company, but he declined to provide additional information. More details will be released in coming weeks, he said.

Details of the lease with Continental, the property’s landlord, were also not disclosed.

“It’s safe to say it’s a long-term lease,” Hauck said.

Hyde Park Group operates Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse and Eleven, the swanky cocktail lounge, on the west side of the Cap, which tops Interstate 670 in the Short North.

The vacant Sushi Rock space is 8,400 square feet. Hyde Park Group’s other two stores occupy a total of 12,000 square feet.

Hyde Park Group still owns 12,000 square feet of space at the southwest corner of Vine and High Streets in the Short North. Hauck said there’s nothing new to report in that development.

He’s optimistic about the neighborhood’s future.

“It’s a fabulous area,” he said. “It’s getting better.”
