Hangover Easy Olde Towne East Nears Grand Opening
Hangover Easy Olde Towne East (HOE OTE) will open this Wednesday, with some menu items offered exclusively at the new location. Sitting at 51 Parsons Ave., in the old Black Creek Bistro spot, HOE OTE will be the restaurant’s second location in Columbus and fourth in Ohio.
The Olde Towne location is just a bit smaller than their Neil Avenue location, fitting roughly 70 patrons into its separate dining room and bar areas. There they’ll carry on the “breakfast cures all” mantra with their menu of breakfast entrees, omelettes, and sandwiches, plus a few new items only available in OTE.
Inspired by the Little Debbie snack, HOE has rolled out an oatmeal cream pie pancake stack. They’ve also introduced a pork belly benedict, chicken and waffles, a falafel salad (or wrap) and a black and bleu burger. Co-owner Scott McCrary says HOE OTE will host the test kitchen for their new burger recipe, so look out for more options in that arena.
Also exclusive to this new location is their milkshakes, regular and boozy. Guests can choose between the chocolate, vanilla bean, Butterfinger, or the Heath Cliff. They’re served from a full bar that is also offering products from Cleveland soda company Craft 62 and Columbus-based coffee company Crimson Cup.
Hangover Easy first opened on Neil Avenue as Nick’s Diner. While maintaining ownership, the diner went through a name change in 2008. Six years later, the HOE brand spread to the Corryville neighborhood of Cincinnati. This year they’ll open their Olde Towne spot and continue renovations on their newest location in Uptown Athens, where they’ve taken over the old Court Street Diner.
