An Indians baseball player plans to open a restaurant in the Short North.

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis is partnering with Forward Hospitality Group and Team Sawyer Restaurants to bring an American-themed restaurant and bar to 906 N. High St, space formerly occupied by RAM Restaurant and Brewery.

The name of the new restaurant has not yet been announced but Forward Hospitality Group said the 11,000-square-foot space will open this summer with a rooftop patio.

Forward Hospitality Group also operates Flipside at Easton Town Center and many restaurants and nightclubs in the Cleveland area. Team Sawyer Restaurants is owned by the award-winning Chef Jonathon Sawyer.
