First Culinary Partners Announced for Budd Dairy Food Hall
Two local businesses have been tapped to serve Cameron Mitchell Restaurants’ Budd Dairy Food Hall, opening later this year. Borgata Pizza Café and Darista are the first of eight chef-driven concepts to be announced for the new food hall coming to Italian Village.
Borgata, owned by Ed Bisconti and Roz Auddino, offers New York-style pizza and Italian dishes sourcing local and regional ingredients. The pizzeria has two other locations in northern Columbus and Worthington. Their bill of fare at Budd Dairy will be an abbreviated version of the menu at these other locations, “but our main focuses will still be our fresh, local ingredients and our identity as a neighborhood pizza café,” says Bisconti in a press release.
“The name ‘Borgata’ actually translates to ‘village’ and is used to refer to small Italian neighborhoods,” Bisconti continued. “That’s the feeling we want to bring to this new location – it’s about connecting as a community.”
Many will also recognize Darista, as in Darista Dips, owned by Dara Schwartz. The company, known for its range of hummuses varying in flavor and regional influence, are sold in more than 70 retail locations.
“This is an amazing opportunity to extend our brand and continue to share stories through the lens of food,” said Schwartz. “With the support of CMR, we can’t wait to craft beautiful layers of flavor with hummus being the foundation to each plate. And personally, it’s a self-exploration and tribute to my Great Grandfather, Ely, who owned a Jewish delicatessen and grocer in Chicago.”
Six other culinary partners will be announced in the next few months. Budd Dairy will also feature a rooftop deck, interactive games and an event space.
