Dublin getting a Harvest Pizzeria


Harvest Pizzeria is opening a location in Historic Dublin.

The restaurant will take over the 4,000-square-foot spot at 45 N. High St., which most recently was occupied by Sisters Sweet Shoppe. It since has moved to a nearby storefront.

“We like the neighborhood setting,” said Chris Crader, president and CEO of Grow Restaurants, which includes the Harvest brand. “Dublin’s a great neighborhood. That’s why we chose Dublin.”

Central Ohio’s third Harvest, which is expected to open this summer, will seat 90. It will not open with a patio, but Crader said he hopes to build one in the future.

With locations in German Village and Clintonville, Harvest is known for its gourmet pies and other reasonably priced dishes.

“We haven’t finalized the menu,” Crader said of the Dublin location. “It will still have the core pizza menu. We’ll create some things and bring that up to Dublin.”

Bar/growler filling station planned for Brewery District

The Columbus Board of Zoning Adjustment on Tuesday, March 24, voted 3-0 on a parking variance for 702 S. High St., the future site of a combination bar/growler filling-station business.

The applicant, Philip Poll, asked for a reduction of 14 parking spaces on the site, which will have eight spots.

The BZA stipulated that Poll make up the lost spots within 750 feet of the property.

The plan is to rebuild the 2,200-square-foot structure, which had office use on the first floor and apartments on the second level but has been vacant for some time.

The future tavern, which had the support of the Brewery District Commission, will have a 442-square-foot patio, said Mark Ours, an architect representing Poll.

Poll would not disclose the name of the tenant, which is expected to reveal all details of the project any day. It is a joint venture between two local groups he said.

Although food will be served, it will be made off-premises but warmed up on site, so it has no need for a full-kitchen ventilation system, Ours said.
