Pies and Pints Opens New Short North Restaurant
West Virginia-based restaurant Pies and Pints will open their third Columbus location today. The new restaurant is located in the historical five-story mixed-use Fireproof building, located at 1020 North High Street. The project initially began in January 2014, with construction and finalizations wrapping up this month.
This addition will be the chain’s eighth location. Pies and Pints opened the doors to their first Columbus location at the Worthington Place Mall in 2012. An additional Easton store opened in November 2014. A new Cincinnati location is in the works at the Liberty Center development in Liberty Township, with an opening slated for early October.
The upscale/casual restaurant serves hand-tossed pizza and craft beer alongside wings, sandwiches, salads, desserts, and more. Specialty pies include options like Chicken Gouda, Grape and Gorgonzola, and a popular Black Bean pizza. They’re gradually making the move towards locally-sourced products, like their Ohio Amish chicken.
The 4,600-square foot space seats a total of 160. The brick and wood interior is dark and cozy, centered around the large bar. The bar area serves beer from 36 taps, most hailing from Ohio. Pies and Pints recently launched an in-house beer dubbed “White Elephant Irish Red”. The malty ale is a collaboration between the restaurant and the Heath-based Homestead Beer Company.
Pies and Pints will open at 3 p.m. today for happy hour. They’ll be open seven days a week for lunch, dinner and drinks.
