First Look: The Old Spot Now Open in Grandview
Grandview’s newest restaurant, The Old Spot, is now open. A collaborative effort from Rick Lopez (Lupo on Arlington, La Tavola) and Tony Tanner (The Butcher & Grocer), the new concept has taken over the former Harvest Pizzeria at 1099 W. First Ave.
The Old Spot is starting with a small menu that general manager Sam Nipps says will change over the next few weeks. Nipps describes the menu as offering “pub fare with a little bit of fusion,” featuring the specialty meats from The Butcher & Grocer. Expect daily specials, including a “Butcher’s Cut,” such as a Denver steak, a dry aged ribeye, a pork chop or a prime rib. They’ll offer a portion of their regular menu as well as exclusive brunch items on Sundays, starting at 10 a.m.
“We’re just kind of seeing what the community is wanting. We’re lucky to have the flexibility,” Nipps says. “If people are wanting particular items, we can construct the menu to that.”
Behind the bar, The Old Spot is prioritizing classic cocktails, Ohio brews, and a small wine list. Along with two other regional beers, their four-tap system stocks products from Parsons North Brewing Company.
The Old Spot is full service and can seat around 100 people inside and 30 more on the patio.
Hours of operation for The Old Spot are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday, 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. They’re closed Monday.
