Olde Towne East Touted as “Best Neighborhood Revitalization”

The growing number of restaurants and retail opening up in Olde Towne East have received quite a bit of press lately. 614 Magazine’s July issue published Ye Olde Gathering Place on the newly-opened Tavern, mentioning the strong redevelopment going on at the corner of Oak and 18th which includes The Tavern along with The Angry Baker and Yellow Brick Pizza.

Then, July’s Columbus Monthly Magazine named OTE “Best Neighborhood Revitalization.” The article highlighted local favorites Black Creek Bistro, Yellow Brick Pizza, The Tavern, and Opal Stackhouse.

We are beyond proud of all the local entrepreneurs that have found success in Olde Towne East. Congratulations on the positive press coverage!

From the Columbus Monthly article:

For a time, Black Creek Bistro held court at the corner of Parsons and Oak as a fine-dining oasis in an otherwise struggling part of town. From that foothold has sprung a vibrant neighborhood, a shining example of urban redevelopment. On Oak Street, Yellow Brick Pizza serves up artisan pies across the street from the indie-minded Angry Baker bakery, and three young entrepreneurs hope their Tavern will develop into a beloved watering hole. An eclectic stretch of retail has popped up along Parsons, like Opal Stackhouse, specializing in reclaimed and handmade items. Here’s hoping that success keeps spreading down Parsons following the massive expansion of Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
