It will be a gastro pub opening up in a few months. Heavy on drinks, lite on food.
And someone that works at CMR said expect a Sept 2012 opening..with no clear idea what it will be yet...(they claim)
That seems like an incredibly long time for buildout. A full year for a restaurant? Cameron Mitchell closed, revamped and reopened the Short Norht Martini location in two and a half weeks.
source said 7-8 months free rent caused the "no rush"...but this individual may just not want to let the news out early of what they have planned. Time will tell.
Possible name will be "PEARL"
First thing I thought of - weird.
It is indeed being named the Pearl, and is indeed a gastropup, with the unique food item being...oysters:
“It’s got a lot of potential,” said Bob Welcher, president and CEO of Restaurant Consultants, Inc. “It follows a trend of high-end food and drink in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere without pretension. (Mitchell is) blending all the things that are hot right now.”
Plans call for the Pearl to open at 4 p.m. and be dinner-only, starting with a happy hour and continuing into late night.
Cameron Mitchell Opening The Pearl Gastropub in The Short North
The Pearl – Restaurant, Tavern & Oyster Room is the full name of the gastropub concept that will be opening at 641 North High Street this Fall. The menu is being described as chef-driven with a focus on local and organic comfort food, with inspiration coming from taverns, bistro and “roadside joints” all around the country. The menu will include fresh oysters, a charcuterie board, pub burgers, red snapper and duroc pork. Meats will be ground in-house and the bar will feature unique craft beers and fresh bar cocktails.

That sounds great and different !
Really looking forward to trying some local oysters!
Awesome - I love that space.
I really hope this is the logo:
So The Pearl's opening is delayed until 2013 instead of this fall now? Anybody in the know at Cameron Mitchells have any updates?
man, we need some Wonderland type rage up in here. IT'S BEEN A YEAR MANNNN.
Why for the love of everything good does it seem like it is impossible to build anything in this town?
I am extremely looking forward to this place and this is a bummer
I live right across the street from the mysterious Pearl and have been waiting anxiously as well. I am getting tired of looking at the "coming soon" window motif. Maybe they can change it up every month!
February 2013, new projected opening...WAITING....
There's plywood covering the entire front entrance now. Not sure when that went up, but just noticed today. Looks like interior construction is under way. ;)
New opening date is Feb 2020. (Joking)...seriously, this better be GREAT with the time frame, I know they have been busy between new Ocean Prime's, and of course, city inspectors always keep things from moving forward
