MAUMEE, Ohio, June 7, 2022: The City of Maumee’s Ultimate Uptown Project will be further enhanced by the addition of a new restaurant in the former Citizens Bank Building on Conant Street. The new restaurant, which will be a fondue and wine bar, hopes to open its doors by December.
Shawn and Megan McClellan, who own Levi & Lilacs Whiskey Room—also in Maumee—were looking for an additional opportunity and were intrigued by the Ultimate Uptown Project in Maumee. “I think that what Maumee is doing to their Uptown is going to be a terrific attraction to residents and visitors alike. We love the feel of the project and really wanted to be part of it,” stated Megan McClellan.
The Citizens Bank Building was purchased by the City of Maumee when the bank decided to downsize its presence in the city. Maumee will renovate and lease the building, with an option to purchase. Plenty of parking is available around the site.
“The addition of this new restaurant is important to our plan for Maumee’s Ultimate Uptown project,” stated Dr. Patrick Burtch, City Administrator. “It’s just the type of business that will draw people to Maumee. We want to be a destination.”
