Cafe Cimmento to close

Cafe Cimmento will welcome customers for the last time this Saturday after owner George Mager announced the restaurant will close its doors.

The restaurant, located at 120 East Boardman Street, near the Covelli Centre, first opened seven years ago to meet demand from growing crowds at the auditorium.

Mager, 64, said his son, Jonathan, the cafe’s head chef, has been offered a “very good job locally” and without him Mager does not want to continue with the business.

After the doors close, Mager, who described himself as “semi-retired,” will focus on his golf game and look for part-time work.

Was this another one of those restaurants slopping at the government trough? Or was this a true entrepreneur who realized this was and always will be a disaster.

Sounds like a father who enjoyed spending time with his son. If his son isn't there, the enjoyment is gone. He may have also thought of it as something to pass down to his son, but his son found a means to stand on his own and this is no longer a necessary anxiety.

Either way, I completely understand his reasoning.

I second gdog. George is a POS. Some people are so miserable in their own lives that they feel the need to bring everyone else down to their level.

I will be sad to see Cafe Cimento to go. It was truly a hidden gem of downtown Youngstown. I applaud the new businesses moving in downtown but places like Cafe Cimento and Cedars will be missed.
