Matt Heaggans, co-owner of Ambrose & Eve + Preston’s

February 5, 2020

We’ve long followed Matt Heaggans’ work, from his days in food trucks to his time leading the kitchens at The Rossi and the Flatiron. Matt and his dishes have become a staple of the Columbus food scene, and his latest projects bring a sense of home and heritage to the table. Partnering with Columbus chef Catie Randazzo, Heaggans operates both Ambrose & Eve and Preston’s: A Burger Joint. Preston’s serves up this writer’s favorite burger out of a food truck and pop-ups at Woodland’s Tavern and Backyard (a brick and mortar in downtown Columbus is in progress, too). Ambrose & Eve is located in an old home on the border of German Village and the Brewery District, and features creative twists on classic home-cooked meals. Both eateries draw their names from Heaggans’ and Randazzo’s grandparents, and both bring that same sense of warmth, welcome, and comfort to their customers.
