Brassica Announces Opening Date for Third Location
The new year will bring many restaurant openings, but one of the earliest will be Brassica in Upper Arlington. The Short North-born restaurant will open its third location at 1442 W. Lane Ave. on Friday, Jan. 18.
Brassica originally opened in 2015, and doubled its locations last summer with a spot in Bexley. Named for a family of vegetables, the restaurant puts a Mediterranean twist on salads and sandwiches and serves them up in a fast casual format.
Guests can choose between a house-made pita, bowl of greens, or hummus plate to start off their meal. Combined with lentils and rice, there’s the option of adding falafel, chicken, brisket, glazed bacon or vegetables. They’ve got sides like fries, hummus, baba ganoush, and veggies; and they round out their menu with a selection of specialty drinks, like iced tea, pink lemonade, Boylan’s Cane Cola, cold-brewed coffee, wine and draft beer.
“We are incredibly excited and grateful to have the opportunity to open Brassica in Upper Arlington. My wife and I bought our first home in UA in 2007, and we have lived here ever since” said Kevin Malhame, Brassica owner, in a press release. “The menu choices, especially the delicious veggies, the homemade hummus, and the just-baked pita, are inspired by the food we grew up eating with our Lebanese grandparents. It’s healthy too. My grandfather lived into his mid nineties eating this way. We’re honored to share these recipes and food memories with our neighbors and the terrific surrounding community.”
For the interior, Malhame went with Architect Andrew Rosenthal, who’s worked on several of Malhame’s other restaurants. Brassica UA will feature walnut, brass, marble, black granite and raw steel, as well as fixtures and artwork by local craftsmen and artists.
As with their other locations, Brassica UA will be open seven days per week, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
