Two Local Restaurants Expanding to New Albany
Katzinger’s Delicatessen will add its third Central Ohio location, and Harvest Pizzeria its fourth, with plans to set up shop in New Albany.
Katzinger’s will open at 160 W. Main St. in the Market & Main 2 development next to Johnson’s Real Ice Cream. The deli has been a German Village staple for 35 plus years, expanding to Dublin in August 2019. Now Katzinger’s will bring its signature menu and famous pickles to a new suburb.
“Our eye has been on New Albany for some time now,” says Tim Rollins, founder & CEO of City Brands which owns Katzinger’s. “We believe Katzinger’s will fill an important niche, both in takeout and dine-in business.”
The new location will seat around 60 diners.
“Our made-to-order menu attracts a loyal following and we’re already hearing from customers who are very excited we’ll be opening our doors in New Albany,” Rollins says.
For its next location, Harvest will be teaming up with Granville’s Three Tigers Brewing Co. Together they’ll take over the approximately 8,000 square feet of space at the former New Albany Mill site, 97 E. Dublin Granville Rd.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Three Tigers Brewing Co. to present a lively restaurant and microbrewery experience in the heart of New Albany,” says Harvest Owner Chris Crader.
Three Tigers has been brewing in Granville since 2016
“Like Harvest, Three Tigers Brewing Co. has a strong commitment to quality and sourcing as many local ingredients as possible,” says brewery Co-Owner Scott Wilkins. “We’ve been able to build a strong base of fans from New Albany and are looking forward to being in the community through this unique collaboration with Harvest,”
The Harvest x Three Tigers mashup is aiming for a summer opening, ideal for the outdoor bier garten that will also be a part of the restaurant.
It won’t be the only opening for Harvest in 2020. After shuttering its flagship German Village location in April 2019, the eatery found a new home nearby at 940 S. Front St. in the Brewery District. On Instagram, Harvest shares they hope to open that location in March. Harvest also operates restaruants in Clintonville, Dublin, Bexley and Over-the-Rhine in Cincinnati.
