Da Levee Will Close This Sunday, Reopen as New Concept
After eight years in the area, Short North’s Da Levee will close its doors at 765 N. High St. this Sunday, April 1, eventually reopening with an entirely new concept. The announcement came via Facebook, indicating a new direction for a business in a changing neighborhood.
“This is not an April Fools joke, just coincidental timing,” said owner Justin Boehme in the post, and later, “The neighborhood is changing and the company must develop and adapt with that change. I want to thank every last one of you that walked through the door and gave me a chance!”
Da Levee has operated as a Cajun kitchen for eight years. The fast-casual restaurant starts guests off with a bowl, burrito or po’ boy and offers a variety of proteins and sauces to top it with. The new concept will host pop-up kitchens instead, though Da Levee will be making appearances occasionally as well. Once reopen, the new business will feature local brews, cocktails, a small market and bar games.
Da Levee has another location at 129 Stygler Rd. in Gahanna, which will remain open. Boheme said they’ll also continue serving food at each of their Aramark locations.
“It is certainly a sad day to close a restaurant, but even more exciting to bring you all the next chapter.” Boheme wrote. “I can not wait to premiere the new concept!”
