Friday Food Bites: January 12, 2018

January 12, 2018

There’s a lot happening in the Columbus restaurant world! Check in weekly to see what’s happening.

  • Caffe Apropos in Harrison West announced they’ll be closing Jan. 19. This makes me kind of sad. Even though I haven’t stopped by in a couple years, I did some dissertation writing there, and the last summer we lived in Harrison West we walked there almost every morning for iced chai.
  • Cameron Mitchell Restaurants announced the Budd Dairy Food Hall, a food business incubator that will lease space to 8-10 chef-driven concepts inside the old Budd Dairy building in Italian Village, across from Seventh Son Brewing.
  • A new growler shop called Porch Growler is coming soon to 892 N. High St. in Worthington.
  • Bono Pizza announced they’ll be closing at their current space at the end of this month.
  • Harold’s American Grille in Old Worthington has closed.
  • The new Andes Bar & Grill has opened at 79 S. Fourth St. downtown, former site of Hae Paul’s.
  • The Pub Polaris closed this week.
  • Piada will soon open their newest central Ohio store at 4193 Buckeye Parkway in Grove City.
  • The Bexley Coffee Shop celebrates their third birthday this Friday, Jan. 12 with free birthday cake, live menu, and other treats.
