After 18 years in business, Alana’s Food and Wine has begun the process of concluding its final chapter. Owners Alana Shock and Kevin Bertschi have listed the restaurant for sale with plans to relocate. The news may come as a surprise to fans who learned earlier this year that the restaurant was staying put after evaluating plans to relocate the business in 2015.

“You know, I’ve been standing in a kitchen for 32 years and I’m ready to do something else,” confirmed Shock on the phone with Columbus Underground today. “We just started our 18th year there. There’s nothing broke about the restaurant — Kevin and I are just ready to do something else.”

Shock stated that Bertschi has already signed the lease on a wine shop in Sandusky, and the couple have plans to relocate there once the restaurant sells. Shock also has a job offer in Belize, so an international relocation could be in store as well.

“I’m going there for my birthday in September to see if it’s a good match,” she stated.

In the meantime, Alana’s will remain open with regular restaurant hours, giving her fans and customers a chance to dine there before moving on. Shock was voted by readers of Columbus Underground as the number one chef in Columbus in 2015.
