Openings, closings and other news in local food and drink
Katalina’s owner Kathleen Day announced this week that she plans to open a second location of her Latin-inspired café in Clintonville. The restaurant’s new location replaces Cabco Record Collector’s Supply at 3481 N. High St. At 2,800 square feet plus a patio, the Clintonville café, known for its pancake balls, breakfast tacos and hefty sandwiches, will be much larger than the original location in Victorian Village, which opened in late 2009. Day is targeting a late 2018 or early 2019 opening.
Zoe Café has closed at 2376 E. Main St. in Bexley, and Chris Crader has already jumped on the space, announcing his plans to open a Harvest Pizzeria there this summer. This will be the sixth location for Harvest, including a Grandview location announced earlier this year, plus restaurants in German Village, Clintonville, Dublin and Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.
Huong Vietnamese Restaurant, a popular North Side spot for authentic Vietnamese cuisine, announced plans reopen Wednesday, May 2, after a months-long closure. The restaurant was forced to close in late December after the chef suffered a serious knee injury. Open nearly 10 years, Huong is located at 1270 Morse Road.
