Visions for Vacancies: Samira on the Riverfront
A pair of restaurants failed to turn a profit at the attractive riverfront property. Now what?
Local restaurateur Nick Dadich hoped to have a hit when he opened Samira in December of 2010.
Dadich focused on affordability after its predecessor, The River Brasserie and Bar, floundered from high prices and a somewhat stuffy atmosphere.
Unfortunately, Samira's customer base steadily dwindled; and when news of its closure was announced in October, Patch readers widely criticized the restaurant's menu and service.
Cuyahoga Falls Deputy Director of Development Jennifer Syx is optimistic that another business will come along and take advantage of the spacious riverfront property, which originally served as a power plant decades ago.
