OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) -

Have you ever noticed the old post office building in the Gateway Quarter? Beginning Tuesday, the building (and the one next door) is reborn as 'The Eagle'.

The new food and beer hall serves comfort food, specializing in fried chicken. It's free-range, Amish chickens from Ohio farms which you can order whole, 1/2 size or 1/4 size.

In addition, the menu has salads, sandwiches and bar snacks.

The main component is beer. The Eagle has more than 100 craft beers with 16 on tap and plenty of them local.

Brothers John and Joe Lanni, along with partner Alex Blust, own both The Eagle and Bakersfield. The Lanni brothers also have the locally-based chain Currito and SoHi Grilled Sandwiches in Oxford, Ohio.

The idea for The Eagle came from the fact that no one else was doing it. "Great comfort food. The market was wide open for it," said John Lanni.

Lanni said they brainstormed menu recipes for several months, did hundreds of tastings and chose 'Eagle' as a nod to the post office.

The straightforward, American fare is accompanied by a wide mix of blues over the speakers.

If you'd like to "fly by," The Eagle Food and Beer Hall is at 1342 Vine St.

Hours: Tuesday-Thursday, 4 PM-12 AM. Friday, 4 PM-2 AM. Saturday, 11 AM-2 AM. Sunday, 11 AM-10 PM

It's also on Facebook & Twitter.

    Toledo has a long and storied history of hockey in the city going back to the first team, the Toledo Mercurys, who played their first season in 1947-48. Other iterations included the Blades, the Hornets, the Goaldiggers and the Storm. For a short time, in 1949-50, the team was actually called the Toledo Buckeyes.
