COLUMBUS, Ohio — Cleveland Indians' free agent second baseman Jason Kipnis is making a statement.
On Thursday, he took to Instagram to express his appreciation for his restaurant, SeeSaw, located in Columbus' Short North neighborhood.
Kipnis partnered with Cleveland-based chef Jonathan Sawyer to open the modern American restaurant last year.
The post read, "To everyone who’s been working there, eating there, drinking there..Thank You!"
Kipnis went on to sing the praises of the restaurant, encouraging Columbus residents to visit the establishment. He also expressed his excitement for the restaurant's "next phase."
Kipnis' post comes just hours after 3News confirmed that his partner, Sawyer, would be closing his downtown Cleveland restaurant Greenhouse Tavern.
The closure of The Greenhouse Tavern marks the third of Sawyer's eateries to close since January 2019. Trentina shuttered its doors in January 2019, while Noodlecat at Westlake's Crocker Park closed last month.
Sawyer's Van Aken District restaurant, called Sawyer's, opened in Shaker Heights last fall.
3News reached out to Sawyer, who said he will speak about the closure after Greenhouse Tavern's final day, Feb. 14.
