Harvest Pizzeria has closed its Grandview Heights location after opening just last summer. But wait, there’s more…

In an Instagram post, Harvest announced the Grandview restaurant at 1099 W 1st Ave would be closing to remodel and regroup.

“Today we closed the doors at Harvest Tavern & Pizzeria in Grandview to remodel and make way for something new and exciting. Keep your eyes peeled, Columbus @thebutcherandgrocer.”

About a year ago, before Harvest Grandview opened, Chris Crader, CEO of Grow Restaurants which owns Harvest, announced a blossoming partnership with the local business a few doors down, The Butcher & Grocer. The whole-animal butcher shop and specialty grocery store opened at 1089 W. First Ave. in 2016

The idea was for Harvest to use specialty meats from Butcher & Grocer and act as a test kitchen of sorts.

Earlier this week, Crader admitted to Columbus Underground that the space was not big enough to pull off the joint concept. He added that Harvest is selling their interest to Butcher & Grocer and that they have plans for “something great for the space.”

We apologize for leaving you with a cliffhanger, but that is all the information we have at this time. Stay tuned for updates!

Condado Tacos open in select locations after closing its doors Tuesday

Condado Tacos is open once again after closing its doors to the public Tuesday following an employee walkout Monday night. Polaris and Clintonville locations remain closed until further notice.

Employees at the Polaris location walked out Monday after refusing to fulfill a catering order by the Ohio Highway Patrol, according to a press release from Condado Tacos Wednesday. The employees who walked out were given the opportunity to not work on the order, without repercussion, if they didn’t feel comfortable, according to a statement provided by Linda Powers, Condado Tacos director of marketing.

The order by the Highway Patrol was placed at the Condado Tacos Polaris location on the fifth-straight day of George Floyd protests in Columbus. Floyd’s death was ruled a homicide following an incident where a Minneapolis police officer placed deadly force on Floyd’s neck with his knee. The incident has sparked protests across the country, including Columbus.

After reaching out to Condado’s PR agency over email, the contact stated that their team has “parted ways” with the business. 

Wednesday’s statement by Condado says they “value different points of view,” but, “choosing not to serve a particular group, in this case law enforcement officers, in itself is discrimination and goes against our core values to welcome and serve everyone.”

Read the full statement here.

The End of the Road?

As the economic impacts of COVID-19 continue, we are beginning to see the effects take their toll on Columbus eateries. Here's a list of some of the changes taking place.

The Sycamore+Cosecha Cocina  

Grow Restaurants, the company which owns Harvest Pizza, has listed The Sycamore and Cosecha for sale. While there hasn't been confirmation that the restaurants won’t make a reappearance in some form, Chris Crader stated in Columbus Underground, “It’s a lot of work to re-open after the pandemic and we have a considerable amount of interest in these two properties so it doesn’t make sense to open and then close again so quickly.”

Miller's Ale House

Both Miller’s Ale House locations are closing. The Florida-based company has removed mention of the Ohio locations from their websites.

Flowers and Bread Co.

In a recent article with Columbus CEO, owners Sarah Lagrotteria and Tricia Wheeler announced the closure of the cafe portion of their business. There are plans to expand the flower and bread workshop portion of the business under the new name Flower and Bread Society.
