Myxx, a short-lived restaurant in the Cedar-Fairmount neighborhood of Cleveland Heights that had the unfortunate tagline "Dine, Drink and Degage," closed in late 2012 after the city declared it a public nuisance.

Since then, residents wondered what would replace it considering that the space, previously a Jillian's Billiard Club for 20 years, was roughly 10,000 square feet. Well, we have our answer. Come spring, the space will welcome a Buffalo Wild Wings.

Richard Andrews, owner of BW3 spots in Lyndhurst, Bainbridge and Sandusky, has already commenced work on the space, which will use just 6,000 square feet of the space. No tenant has claimed the remaining 4,000 square feet. A large bar will sit on the western half of the space, while the eastern half will be dedicated to the kitchen and dining room. A new rear patio will be enclosed and heated in the winter and opened up in summer.

"I love the neighborhood aspect of the location and the proximity to Case, UH and Cleveland Clinic," Andrews explains. "The Cedar-Fairmount district is an active, vibrant area."

BW3 started with one bar near the campus of Ohio State University back in 1982 and has since grown to more than 900 locations.

"Beer, wings and sports are the three key words for us," Andrews adds. The menu also offers starters, flatbreads, sandwiches and burgers.

An all new draft system will supply 30 domestics and crafts on tap, with another 40 or more by the bottle. TVs and tabletop tablets will allow guests to control music selections or play trivia or other games.

Look for a March or April opening.
