Hyde Park names replacement for Sushi Rock in Short North


Black Point will take over the former Sushi Rock location on the Cap in the Short North.

Much of the restaurant, owned by the Cleveland-based Hyde Park Restaurant Group, is still under development but it will have a menu of seafood, steak, sandwiches and an extensive small-plates section, said Rick Hauck, a founding partner of the restaurant group.

The 8,300-square-foot space, 750 N. High St., is being designed by locally based Design Collective. A mid-September opening is planned.

“We’re taking our time,” he said. “This is going to be a fabulous place. We’re going to do it right, especially for that area.”

Hauck said he’s not worried that the restaurant group is investing too much on the Cap. Hyde Park Steak House and Eleven, a lounge, occupy the entire west side of High Street.

“Hyde Park is clearly a destination dining venue, a place where people entertain,” he said. “The new place, Black Point, is for everyday dining. It has a broader appeal from an age demographic.

“I think it will be different enough, a totally different experience,” he said. “The menu will be quite different.”

The bar and lounge area will occupy a large portion of the space, which also will include a 75-seat dining room and six private-event rooms.

He said although food prices have not been set, the menu will be competitively priced.
