Natalie’s Sets Opening Date for Second Location
The concert calendar is already filling up for Natalie’s Music Hall & Kitchen in Fifth by Northwest. Popular Worthington joint Natalie’s Coal-Fired Pizza and Live Music is ready to open its second location this Thursday, December 5 at 945 King Ave.
Natalie’s is taking over the 9,000 square foot former home of King Avenue 5. With nearly three times the capacity of the original, the new location has enough square footage for separate areas for dining and live tunes.
The coal-fired oven is a prominent feature on the dining side, with a menu that goes beyond Natalie’s signature pizzas. There’s an appetizer section that spans charcuterie & cheese and arancini, to oysters and octopus, as well as a handful of soups and salads. The Fifth by Northwest location strays from its roots with a robust section of entrees featuring an Ancho BBQ Braise Pork Shank, Olive Oil Poached Shrimp & Linguine and more. However pizza fans can fear not, there’s a menu of classic offerings and a daily seasonal selection.
A separate, Natalie’s Music Hall menu does triple duty – serving as the lineup of eats for concert-goers, as the happy hour menu for the bar in the dining room and as late night eats on the weekends. The more limited menu features sandwiches like the Charlie’s Muffalat and Pastrami on Sourdough, and the restaurant’s lineup of pizzas.
The restaurant side of Natalie’s Music Hall & Kitchen will be open 4 – 10 p.m. Tuesday – Thursday, 4 p.m. – midnight Friday and Saturday and 4 – 9 p.m. Sunday.
