If you’ve been by the Northstar Café in the Short North recently, then you may have noticed that some changes are under way. Their popular patio is in the process of being completely demolished and rebuilt for the summer season.

“Right now the patio is being re-landscaped, and refurnished,” explains Northstar Café owner Kevin Malhame. “It will also have new table lighting for the evenings, and a second doorway to relieve some of the traffic at the main entrance.”

Malhame says that the changes are taking place at the original Northstar Café location as a part of the 10th year anniversary of their opening, which is planned for September.

“As we approach that anniversary, we are excited to make a few small improvements so that the restaurant is ready for another 10 awesome years,” he continues. “So many of our guests in the Short North have been incredibly loyal and supportive for so many years. They really deserve the nicest, most well maintained restaurant that we can offer.”

In addition to the patio work, a refurnishing of the restaurant and remodeling of the bathrooms is planned to follow. Northstar’s original architect Andrew Rosenthal of GRA+D Architects has been brought back to design the improvements so that the existing aesthetic of the restaurant will be preserved.
