Last week as I was walking on 6th St. in downtown Cincinnati, I happened to peer into a construction site and get a glimpse of this “BDL” tilework. There are two configurations of the monogram and a pretty repeating pattern.
The buildings in question are the former Maisonette and La Normandie, now owned by 3CDC and currently under construction. The plan is for Boca to move from Oakley into one of these spaces, while the other will become an Italian restaurant. You can read more about that here and here, and check out more construction photos here.
Dear Powers That Be: please retain the tile as you rehab the space. It’s so pretty! On another note, what was BDL?
