The vision for the development at 800 North High is finally coming together, as Crawford Hoying has announced that the Cleveland-based restaurant TownHall will take up the entire first floor of the Short North building. The restaurant, set to open next summer, will serve up lunch, dinner, and brunch that’s 100 percent non-GMO and full of vegan, vegetarian, low-glycemic, ketogenic, and paleo options.

“TownHall is a perfect addition to Short North and the 800 North High development,” said Brent Crawford, Crawford Hoying Principal, in a press release. “With its non-GMO, healthy food and fun environment, TownHall is bringing something to downtown Columbus that we don’t currently have. We’re excited for this Cleveland staple to open in Central Ohio.”

TownHall will occupy a full 7,200 square feet of space, and that includes a 650-square-foot patio. Along with its diverse, organic food menu, the restaurant offers their own organic coffee, The Standard, as well as a variety of other caffeinated beverages, “from ‘Bulletproof’ coffee to Nitro Toddy and Turmeric lattes.”

A full bar can be found as well at TownHall, which keeps a rotating selection of craft beers on tap and pours specialty cocktails made from organic cold-pressed juices. And, any winos looking for biodynamic, vegan and organic wine will find a variety of them at TownHall, too.

“We’ve been looking to expand TownHall for quite a while, but we were waiting for the perfect location in downtown Columbus,” said Bobby George, TownHall founder. “TownHall is unique to the area, and we look forward to bringing our fresh food and vibe to the Short North.”

George will implement a second concept at 800 North High as well, a 10th floor restaurant with a rooftop bar and lounge that’s yet to be named.

A Moxy Hotel by Marriott, a Hubbard-facing retail space, and 46,000 square feet of office space will complete the development.
