Friday Food Bites: June 12, 2020

June 12, 2020

There’s a lot happening in the Columbus restaurant world – here’s the latest!

  • This is a bittersweet week in terms of breakfast news. Earlier this week, Caroline and Dan from Baba’s shared a blog post detailing their closure. I’m really going to miss that place. They worked so hard to build out a place with amazing food and great community. I loved getting to introduce Columbus Food Adventures breakfast tour guests to their story.
  • On a positive note, though, the owners of Kolache Republic announced that they’ll be reopening inside The Daily Growler at 702 S. High St. in German Village/Brewery District. An opening date has yet to be set.
  • Two Gay Street cafes have closed: Plantain Cafe closed in the past couple weeks, while Cafe Phenix Bistro closed this Wednesday.
  • A new Merion Village pizza place, Mid City Garage, soft opened last week.
  • Lawbird cocktail and wine bar launches Law Bird at Home today, a collection of bottled cocktails and wines you can pre-order and pick up.
  • Business First reports that a new brewery is in progress for downtown Columbus. Holy Trinity Brewing Company is set to open this summer at 155 N. Fifth St.
  • The Worthington Farmers Market migrates to a new, temporary walk-in location at 450/500 W. Wilson Bridge Rd. starting this Saturday, June 13.
  • Buckeye Lake Brewing has begun debuting beers from its new Reynoldsburg companion brewery, Eastside Brewing Company.
  • 614 Day is this Sunday, June 14, which includes a drive-through Ohio Food Truck Rally at Mapfre Stadium
