Openings, closings and other Columbus dining news
Harvey and Ed’s, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants’ newest concept, is coming to 698 N. High St., the former home of Rigsby’s in the Short North. The modern take on the traditional delicatessen will feature menu items like matzo ball soup, potato latkes, deli sandwiches and house-smoked fish. The 4,100-square-foot space will include a full bar and offer a traditional deli counter for carryout orders in addition to table seating. Harvey & Ed’s will be open for lunch and dinner daily plus brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Look for a spring 2018 opening.
