There’s a lot happening in the Columbus restaurant world; here’s the latest for this week:
- Last week East Side Brewing, a companion to Buckeye Lake Brewery, opened their taproom at 1421 Davidson Dr. in Reynoldsburg.
- The Daily Growler announced today that it has permanently closed its location inside the Polaris Fashion Place food court
- Gallo’s on High opened last week in Clintonville at 4215 N. High St., the old Little Eater space next to Hot Chicken Takeover and the forthcoming Pit BBQ Grille location.
- Crafted Culture Brewing Company announced that it will open next month in the old Kindred Beer space at 505 Morrison Rd. in Gahanna. Crafted Culture will be the city’s first majority black-owned brewery.
- Fusian opened two new locations last week, one at 7712 Sawmill Rd. in Dublin and one at 79 S. State St. in Westerville. This makes five total locations around Columbus, and 12 locations overall for Fusian.
- A new Tex-Mex restaurant called Crunchwerks opened inside Cafe Bourbon Street at 2216 Summit St. in the University District.
- Heirloom Cafe announced that they would remain closed during the spring semester at Ohio State; Heirloom is located in the lower floor of the Wexner Center for the Arts.
- In case you missed the news last week, Bake Me Happy in Merion Village was subjected to a variety of racist threats a couple Sundays again, so owners Wendy and Letha Pugh closed it down for the day out of caution. They’ve since reopened, but if you have some extra dollars to spend, stop by there for delicious gluten free baked goods, and tip the employees well!
