The latest updates from the bar and restaurant scenes
This week, Katalina's owner Kathleen Day announced that she plans to open a second location of her Latin-inspired cafe in Clintonville. Known for its pancake balls, breakfast tacos and hefty sandwiches, Katalina's new location replaces Cabco Record Collector's Supply at 3481 N. High St. At 2,800-square-feet, plus a patio, the Clintonville cafe will be much larger than the original location in Victorian Village, which opened in late 2009. Day is targeting a late 2018 or early 2019 opening.
Huong Vietnamese Restaurant, a popular Morse Road spot for authentic Vietnamese cuisine, announced plans to reopen Wednesday, May 2, after a months-long closure. The restaurant was forced to close in late December after the chef suffered a serious knee injury. Open nearly 10 years, Huong is located at 1270 Morse Rd.
Kindred Brewing celebrates its second anniversary on Saturday, April 7, at its Gahanna taproom, 505 Morrison Rd. The day's festivities include morning yoga, live music and the release of two new barrel-aged beers: AU Golden Sour and English Style Old Ale. The taproom opens at 11 a.m. For more information, visit facebook.com/KindredBrewing.
