The Downtown Columbus restaurant scene continues to blossom with new options with the addition of “Manifesto” in November. Located at 21 East State Street in the Fifth-Third Building, this new venue is being described as a “rustic Tuscan Grato and full scotch bar” by owner Yavonne Sarber, who also owns de-NOVO Bistro and Bar located just two blocks away on High Street.
“Our scotch bar will be extensive with knowledgable bartenders serving proper methods,” said Sarber. “The space will be beautiful, in a manly way.”
Manifesto will seat 90 guests and will be open from 7am for breakfast through 1am on weekdays and 2am on weekends. The culinary team for the new restaurant includes leadership from Chef Robert Harrison, executive sous chef Mike Gadd, and sous John Franke.
