The redevelopment and reimagining of Ohio State’s campus and the Gateway district continues as three new tenants were announced to land in the shopping center.

The three new tenants are Game Arena, the second location for an esports arena which will have a food and booze program from A&R Creative Group (TRISM, Midway, Fourth Street Bar & Grill, Ethyl and Tank); a second Cazuela’s Grill, the popular authentic Mexican cuisine restaurant already established on High St.; and Yong Kang Street, a restaurant offering dishes inspired by China and Taiwan.

“There truly is something for everyone here at the Gateway,” said Chrstiana Moffa, Property Manager for the Gateway — University District, in a press release. “The addition of Cazuela’s and Yong Kang Street contribute to our unique melting pot of restaurants, while Game Arena offers a new resource and popular activity to the university area. We are so please with the continued evolution of the Gateway, and will be almost occupied after these establishments open.”

Game Arena will be located on 1556 N. High St. and is slated to open in the fall of 2019, and Yong Kang Street, with plans at 1576 N High St., is also looking at a fall 2019 opening. Cazuela’s, soon-to-be located on 1542 N High St., didn’t announce a tentative date for opening, but mentioned there will be a storefront added over the summer in anticipation of the opening.

Prior to this reinvention, Gateway was home to such campus staples as Ugly Tuna, which closed last spring, but recently announced it’d be opening a new location on Chittenden Avenue; and Mad Mex, which closed last summer after 13 years in business.

Barrels, get your whiskey barrels here!

Middle West Spirits has just announced a new sale program to unload their growing surplus of whiskey barrels. Barrels will be available for pickup and sale from their warehouse, 470 E. Starr Ave., Sat., July 18,  8 a.m. to noon.

Middle West will sell 30-gallon and 53-gallon barrels for $50 and $75 respectively. You may also pick up barrel staves for $3. 

The barrels for sale were used for either bourbon, rye, or wheat whiskey, and the barrel type can be specified upon purchase. 

Whiskey barrels, and bourbon barrels, in particular, have a long history of reuse in spirit aging internationally. This is a wonderful opportunity for home distillers to snag a barrel for their own experimentation. 

And if your skills lie outside of the world of homebrewing, there are more than enough craft possibilities in one of these recycled barrels.. With projects ranging from bars, to chairs and tables, the DIY-er will have endless options for creativity. 

Barrels will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and can also be reserved by emailing the barrel size and whiskey type to [email protected]

Westerville’s Wine Bistro has a new name—reopens Thursday with makeover

Even though City Brands announced that the Wine Bistro in Worthington wouldn’t be returning, there were initial rumors that the Westerville location also wouldn’t be making a comeback.

Original reports were wrong, and City Brands announced the return of the Westerville Wine Bistro, 925 N. State St.,on July 9 after a light remodel. You can find the (614) report on the City Brands reopenings and closings here.

The remodeling isn’t the only thing that’s going to be new about the Wine Bistro in Westerville, though. Or as we should we say now, NAPA Kitchen + Bar. With locations  in Westerville, Dublin, and Montgomery, Ohio,  NAPA Kitchen + Bar is a sister concept to The Wine Bistro.

“We feel the NAPA Kitchen + Bar concept will really appeal to a wide range of guests in Westerville. We wanted to undertake this conversion for quite a while but never found the right time to close down for the renovations,” Tim Rollins, President of The Metropolitan Companies and owner of NAPA kitchen + bar, said in a press release on Thursday.

The restaurant will be open Monday through Thursday, 4 to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 4 to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 4 to 8 p.m.
