I can't wait. It would be great to see a groundswell of support for them. I hope to be in line! Salty Caramel!
(From the article): In a post on social media, Jeni Britton Bauer said the production kitchen has been completely reworked, including new walls, sterilization procedures and the addition of a conveyor belt. She said the kitchen should be open by the end of the week.
Jeni’s issued a voluntary recall on all their products late last month due to the detection of listeria. This included their production kitchen, scoop shops and pints distributed to other stores. Further testing of their facility pinpointed the spout of a machine used to fill pints as the source of the listeria.
In addition to recalling their products and closing their shops, Jeni’s collaborated with sanitation experts from the FDA and the Ohio Department of Agriculture to clean their facility and rework production logistics.
Jeni’s CEO John Lowe estimates they disposed of more than 535,000 pounds of ice cream, costing the company roughly $2.5 million.
It looks like the Scottish are coming. BrewDog, a Scotland-based craft brewer, is in talks to locate a production brewery in Columbus.
BrewDog was founded in 2007 in Aberdeen, Scotland, and has experienced enormous growth. The company said it made the equivalent of 75,000 barrels of beer in 2014, 60 percent growth over 2013. A similar-sized brewery in Columbus would make BrewDog the biggest in the city and the third-largest craft brewer in Ohio.
Lineage Brewing, Clintonville’s first microbrewery, is now serving at its High Street taproom. For this week’s soft opening, Lineage has tapped its cream ale, Berliner weisse, coconut porter and English-style rye ale. By this weekend, an IPA should also be on draft.
When the Knotty Pine restaurant closed its doors in 2012, residents of Grandview Heights bemoaned the loss of a favorite local establishment. The space at 1765 West Third Avenue (which is technically in Columbus, but only by a few feet) has been occupied by the Rude Dog Bar & Grill for the past 18 months, which abruptly closed its doors without notice (its website only lists Polaris and Pickerington locations).
The space won’t sit empty for long though, as the new owners have announced today that it will once again carry the Knotty Pine moniker with an updated concept.
(From the article): Kessler says that his home brewing skills aren’t enough to scale up to a larger operation, so he’s hired a local brewmaster with thirty years of experience to help set things up and consult on recipes. Similarly, Kessler hired Chef Bret Perichak to run the kitchen, who will be relocating just two miles down Third Street from Katalina’s.
“Our menu will be truly American with an Italian flare,” says Kessler. “The Knotty Pine always had Italian dishes on the menu, and had an Italian lean to it — so I think we’ll see those influences in our flavor profiles and meat choices.”
The Knotty Pine Brewing Company is scheduled for an early March opening. The restaurant will be open Tuesday through Sunday for lunch and dinner with weekend brunch service. Kessler will keep the establishment closed on Mondays to focus on brewing operations and expects to launch in March with a porter on draft and additional beers to be added to the rotation throughout the rest of the year.
“We have some exciting ideas this Spring to use local produce for making wheat beers,” he says. “You can’t source everything locally, but we will do as much as we can.”
They call him “Dr. Breakfast.” Nicholas Dekker, 34, an affable theater lecturer at Columbus’ Ohio State University, loves the first meal of the day, and this passion has made him a local celebrity. His blog, Breakfast With Nick, and book of the same name chronicle Columbus’ multitude of brekkie spots.
(From the article): So, why is breakfast such a thing in this capital city? “Columbus, in general, is a good food city,” Dekker opines between sips of coffee from excellent local roaster Thunderkiss. “By nature of that, our breakfast scene is, too.” He pegs it to the city’s duality of tradition and forward-thinking innovation, easy access to fresh farmland product, embracing and nurturing of local business (yet, ironically, chains White Castle and Wendy’s were founded here), and a morning person culture that prizes social opportunities to start off the day. Not a morning person? Plenty of spots offer all-day brekkie.
It’s been a good year to live in Beechwold. The neighborhood just North of Clintonville has never really been a hub of restaurant activity, but in recent months it’s become the home of both a new Wine Bistro and now Mozart’s.
Mozart’s moved into the new location in the middle of summer, leaving its old digs a few miles south in Clintonville. In making the move, the eatery consolidated its ice cream operation (Vienna Ice) and bakery-slash-cafe under one single palatial roof. The new spot is a stucco and brick stand-alone with a tile roof and fancy arches. It’s a castle on High Street.
After over a year in the works and going through a name change, the Seventh Son Brewing Company officially opened their doors for the first time last weekend for a soft launch party. The new business boasts 4,500 square feet of rentable event and entertainment space divided into two indoor areas and a beer garden patio out back.
“We’re not sure how much we’ll be open as a regular venue,” said co-owner Collin Castore. ”But at first we need to get people in here to see the space.”
Last weekend’s launch party included food trucks parked out front and a full bar featuring other local brews on draft such as Weasel Boy, Elevator, Four String and CBC.
Dinin’ Hall began as a design idea trying to solve practical issues of eating at food trucks and carts. Tim and Eliza love to eat as much as they love to sit, and eating street food while standing has become challenging. So, they started to dream.
Dinin’ Hall was born, a perfect marriage of street food and casual dining experiences. It features a rotating roster of food trucks and carts and their signature items, promoting their innovative menus. It provides a cool dining area of industrial charm with community tables and bar seating. This is going to raise the bar for high quality, gourmet (yet casual) street food dining, right in Columbus!
More than anything else, Dinin’ Hall is about good food and people makes a great community! It is a destination where passion for food and innovation thrives.
When warm weather arrives in Central Ohio, why not take advantage of every opportunity to spend time outdoors? Lucky for us, there are many great parks in the city that offer fun activities and events all summer long.
I resolve to spend some time in the parks of Central Ohio this summer.
Though undoubtedly unscientific, you’d be hard-pressed to dismiss Alive’s readers’ poll as meaningless, particularly since it’s easily the largest of its kind in the city.
Congratulations to Hot Chicken Takeover and their 'best new restaurant' recognition. However, I think that Ray Ray's was robbed of their 'best BBQ" recognition. City BBQ is not the best Columbus has to offer!
All of a sudden it feels like spring in Central Ohio, and with the warm weather comes the rollout of new food trucks. We know that many hardy food truckers have been out all winter long and we tip ...
It's always encouraging to see the Food Trucks out and about.
(From the article): Hot Chicken Takeover has taken Columbus by storm and, as well as their North Market location, they now have a mobile operation. Their truck was at the Columbus Crew season opener on Saturday. They’ll mostly be doing festivals and private events but you can enjoy HCT at the North Market, Thursday-Sunday.
The North Market fills up with soup, sandwiches and salads
The North Market is once again a full house. It (generally) doesn’t have too many openings and the last vacant spot was taken by Little Eater, a pop-up restaurant that has seen the inside of the Hills Market. Run by Chef Cara Mangini, Little Eater is set to open in January.
Car2Go used to bumps in the road, CEO says Columbus Dispatch “Every city we go into, it starts out that people don't understand how it works,” Cole said this week during a media tour to promote the service, which is to launch in Columbus on Oct.
If you’re going to go to Lexi’s On Third for lunch, you might as well order the ridiculously large Lexi’s Tower ($14). Life is short, and epic edibles that come in the form of mammoth sandwiches are few and far between.
My first memories of Studio 35 go back to my senior year of High School – in a Clintonville from long, long ago but not so far away. At that time, the theater showed two second run movies for...
(From the article): All of the above were enough to turn things around and make “the Studio” a viable, sustainable business but there was still more to come. Studio 35 became a bit of a hang out for a core group of people. There was a lightly used bar and a few booths that created an intimate atmosphere separate from the theatre. Customers still longed for better seating, sound and amenities. They got that and more – Studio invested major capital into the guts of the building in 2012 and transformed from an ugly (but charismatic) duckling into a very hot swan of a Studio 35.
(Not from the article): I live within walking distance of this theatre - and it is one of the hidden jewels of the North Columbus area. My daughter and I had the chance to watch "The Hobbit" a few weeks ago. When there is a watchable film, we have tried to go see it there.
The Indianola strip of Clintonville is the Rodney Dangerfield of the area, no respect. In particular, the Beechwold enclave of Clintonville (Cooke Rd. to Morse Rd) along Indianola is even less endowed with anything to be a draw to the area (well, maybe the Food Trucks at Charity Newsies, being the brilliant initiative that it is would be an exception). The area and it’s residents want what the rest of the area has – more eateries, more independent business and more traffic for the existing businesses along this thoroughfare. Enter Savor.
The space that Savor has taken over was a standard carry-out for many years. It was a place for lottery tickets and last-minute emergency party needs. It was OK as far as carry outs go but noting to speak of, or blog about. However, one day I drove by and noticed a new sign which piqued my interest. Then I saw some flyers and ads – which features a nice logo, some nice photos and whoa….wait a minute, FREE DELIVERY. Someone will deliver beer and wine to my home? Why yes, they will, for free! That is convenient.
I have found out about another place to visit near where we live. This one delivers beer!
