One of our favorite blocks downtown just got, uh, favoriter, with the announcement that Late Night Slice would be opening their first full-service, full-bar concept on 4th Street downtown.

A 3,500-foot Late Night Slice is slated to open in Spring of 2015 at 268 S. Fourth St., just south of 16-Bit Bar + Arcade. It will feature an expanded menu that includes salads(!) and other new offerings, as well as the traditional slices and some new whole pies.

Perhaps more importantly, there will be booze.

LNS founder Mikey Sorboro says he's excited to bring some of the knowledge from their 2014 launch of Short North bar Oddfellow's Liquor Bar. "With Oddfellows, we learned a lot about the look and feel we want to see in our future concepts," said Sorboro in a press release.

"Late Night Slice on Fourth will borrow some design cues, but will definitely have its own style," added partner Bryce Ungerott.

The new restaurant comes with the announcement that the Late Night Slice location at Columbus Commons will not be back for a third year. Also coming soon a little further down 4th Street corridor is The Walrus, an upcoming bar and restaurant concept from the people behind Olde Town East's The Tavern.

UPDATE: Well, that didn't take long ... Local food truck Tortilla will be making the foray into brick-and-mortar as they take over the spot at Columbus Commons previously occupied by Late Night Slice.

"I am excited and grateful to have the opportunity to join forces with Columbus Commons," said Tortilla founder Walter Eguez via press release on Friday. "All of us at Tortilla look forward to serving the community in our new location, growing our brand, and hopefully becoming a staple eatery in the great city of Columbus."

Tortilla, which specializes in a variety of high-quality Mexican street foods, is finalizing its hours for the spot, but plans to be open for lunch and dinner, as well as special events at the Commons.
