Photos: Knead Urban Diner soft opening!

July 6, 2010

Exciting news for breakfast in Columbus! This week sees the opening of Knead Urban Diner in Short North. Knead takes the place of Zen Sushi on High Street, in the Hampton Inn and across from the Convention Center.

This morning began a soft opening of offering discounted meals so owners Rick and Krista Lopez, and their crew, can start the restaurant running and work out the kinks. I met up with Bethia and Drew of Hungrywoolf, Taco Trucks Columbus, et al. this morning to try the breakfast.

We were greeted with two small cases of pastries at the door.

Views of the dining room…

A handful of chairs at the counter, a couple booths, and plenty of tables.

We started with a cinnamon roll. My son Will devoured it.

And then the biscuits and gravy, with two eggs, a homemade biscuit, prosciutto gravy, and their version of hash browns.

Magnetic map on the wall, showing the 88 counties of Ohio. The magnets will show where Knead’s local ingredients are sourced from.
