Another One Bites The Short North Dust: Pies & Pints Closed

Pies & Pints in the Short North has closed.

The restaurant, which opened in 2015, has shuttered its doors and been removed from the official Pies & Pints website, leaving the Easton and Worthington locations as the only remaining Central Ohio spots.

No explanation was given as to the closure of Pies & Pints, but that didn’t stop some from speculating. Was it the seemingly neverending construction in the Short North? Or perhaps the restaurant was victim to the ever-rising rents in the area. Ultimately, it was a sales issue.

“Sales were never what we needed despite continued investment,” co-owner and president Rob Lindeman told Columbus Business First in an email. “Once our initial term/guarantee was up, we stayed another six months to attempt to sublet or work with the landlord.”

Regardless of their reason for closing, it’s a sad day for pizza lovers. Sure, you can still grab a slice as Mikey’s or sit down for a gourmet experience at Paulie G’s, Pies & Pints had a unique location and pizza worth all the hype.

Although they’ve closed their Short North location, Pies & Pints is still expanding. The Columbus-based pizza and craft beer restaurant will open a new store in Carmel, IN, bringing their total number of locations up to 14.
