One of the first dining experiences of its kind is all set to open their doors later this month in the Short North.
Short North Food Hall, located at 1112 N. High street, has announced the five vendors who will be stuffing our stomachs when they open on March 22, 2018.
Short Grain Sushi, Shokudo Modern Asian Kitchen, Legacy Smokehouse, Tortilla Mexican Street Food, and Vinny’s Pizza will be cooking up delicious dishes at the hall. Guests will be able to order from virtually anywhere in the hall, including from their tables with traditional servers, from the vendors themselves, and even from the bar.
For those of you wondering, the Food Hall is essentially a food court. The kitchens will be set up on the edges of the facility, with dining areas in the center. Short North Food Hall was the brainchild of Corso Ventures, the local restaurant group behind Pint House, Standard Hall, and Forno.
“I think its a place that, for me personally — and I know for Chris Corso, too — we always want to build places that we personally want to hang out at,” Reed Woogerd, President of Corso Ventures, told Columbus Underground. “…just fun, energetic places that the neighborhood wants and needs. And for that pocket of the neighborhood, it’s just adding more options for people that live down there as well.”
Eventually, there will even be a rooftop bar area for customers to enjoy. But for now, the Food Hall itself will have to do. On March 21, 614 is hosting a special sneak peek party at the hall, where guests can get samples from the restaurants involved and sip on a signature cocktail. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.
