A company that’s become a household name in the Short North has taken claim of a High Street staple.
Michael’s Goody Boy Diner, located at 1144 N High St., has closed temporarily while the new owners at Corso Ventures make renovations.
Corso Ventures is the parent company of some of Short North’s most popular establishments: Forno Kitchen & Bar, Pint House, Short North Food Hall, and Standard Hall.

The Goody Boy name and building will remain, but cosmetic enhancements will be made.
A reopening date has not yet been determined.
Michael Pappas opened the restaurant in 1947. It’s changed hands many times since then, but was most recently owned by Jim Velio of Jimmy V’s Grill and Pub.
Velio restored the iconic Goody Boy sign to its original style with neon lighting.
