Jack Flaps, the eclectic chef-driven diner in Ohio City, has closed. The past few months (years?) have been rocky for the café, with sporadic closings and re-openings offering hints of the ultimate fate. The restaurant opened in December of 2013.

“It is what it is,” says owner Randy Carter. “The sales have been going down the past couple years and the debts of the other restaurants are weighing me down."



The “other restaurant” to which he’s referring is Jack Flaps Luncheonette at the 5th Street Arcades, which closed its doors this past January after three and a half years.
