Cameron Mitchell Restaurants isn’t exactly short on concepts in Columbus.
In the Short North, favorites like The Pearl and The Guildhouse are popular amongst local foodies. But their latest concept is a first.
Harvey & Ed’s, a New York-style Jewish delicatessen, opened last month. Although the deli is inspired by the rich history of its predecessors, it is also pushing ahead with modern twists on the classics.
Chef’s favorites at Harvey & Ed’s include:
Bubbe’s Matzo Ball Soup – chicken, vegetables and house made matzo ball
Noshes – Chopped Liver, Bissel of Caviar, Hummus, Latke Royale, and more
Deli-style sandwiches – featuring Reuben, Roast Beef, Falafel Hoagie, Turkey Rachel, All Beef Hot Dog and Smoked Salmon Bagel. All sandwiches are served with a side of fries, coleslaw or potato salad
“Columbus offers one of the best dining scenes in the nation, and we are eager to introduce a concept that is unlike anything currently available in Central Ohio,” said CMR President David Miller.
“Harvey & Ed’s menu focuses on taking classic delicatessen favorites and elevating them with a modern culinary twist. We are excited for our guests to experience the unique dishes handcrafted by our talented culinary team.”
The 4,100-square foot restaurant has both a traditional deli counter for carryout and catering orders and table seating for around 140 guests. You can also grab a drink at the bar where they are serving up handcrafted cocktails, wine, house sodas, and egg creams.
But perhaps the most exciting thing on the menu at Harvey & Ed’s was their traditional Black & White cookie. It was honestly the best Black & White I’ve had outside of New York City and it was worth every cent of it’s $3 cost.
Harvey & Ed’s is located at 698 N High Street in the Short North. They are open Monday-Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
