Harvest’s Owner Takes Over Sycamore Cafe
Harvest owners Bethany Lovell and Chris Crader
One to watch for later this year: Chris Crader, the man behind German Village phenoms Harvest Pizzeria and Curio, has acquired the neighborhood’s Sycamore Cafe. He’ll be working with the spot’s local-tavern DNA, upgrading the bar food and drinks to feature local produce and beer.
“I live a few blocks away, and the options for casual dining are a little limited in the neighborhood,” Crader says.
He’s long wanted to do a spot with a hefty beer list intended for his neighbors. Getting German Village buildings approved for new uses, though, is difficult, so he had to wait for a spot already zoned as a bar to come up for sale. He’s hoping to reopen the cafe in August.
