Popular eatery closing Italian Village space to consolidate operations

One of the city’s standout meatless eateries will shutter its Italian Village restaurant in order to relocate all operations to its Short North space.    

Woodhouse Vegan Cafe, which has operated its original brick and mortar home at 851 N. 4th St., will shutter this location later this month in order to consolidate operations at its new storefront, which is located at 19 W. Russel St.

Last August, Woodhouse opened the Russel Street location, originally as a way to offer baked goods and breakfast items, and a way to increase opportunities for small business collaborations. 


According to a statement posted to Woodhouse‘s social media pages on Oct.7, after opening it became clear to owners that the new space served as a better hub for the popular vegan concept. 

“In an intentional effort to create more freely, we jacked-up this new shop with all the bells and whistles that our Italian Village Cafe defiantly lacks. And it became quickly apparent that this location would provide us the opportunity to expand our menu, hours + community reach,” the statement reads. “Ultimately, our Short North Shop gives us a space where our brand can scale beyond the traditional confines of a restaurant, so we can purposefully keep pushing to disrupt the norm.”

Woodhouse will close its Italian VIllage restaurant, which it first opened in the fall of 2019, on Oct. 21.
