L’Antibes Closes, Will Reopen as HomeFare
Short North restaurant L’Antibes has closed its doors.
The space at 772 N. High Street will undergo a full renovation, with a reopening slated for July 30. The new concept replacing L’Antibes will be called HomeFare. The home-inspired menu will feature a range of comfort foods, and will be carryout-friendly.
Chef and Owner Matthew Litzinger, a Columbus native, moved back to the city in 2007, directly after his graduation from the Culinary Institute of America. After working brief stints at Cirque du Soleil and Northstar Cafe, he bought L’Antibes in July 2007. The restaurant served fine French dining to Columbus for years, eight under Litzinger’s ownership.
“Fine dining has a very special place in my heart, and I have a goal someday of resurrecting L’Antibes when the resources, time, and appropriate location present themselves,” said Litzinger in an announcement on the L’Antibes website. “For now, I’m excited about this new concept and my ability to bring quality home-inspired food to the Short North.”
