Bru Burger Bar almost ready to open. Local Cantina opened. Poke Bros promises to open. Phat Taco? Westerville’s restaurant scene expands with two new restaurants, one that plans to open this month, and one that is now allowed to serve alcohol but little progress in the construction upgrades in the last several months.
A sign company worker removes debris from the 8 State Barrel & Boar marquee after it was heavily damaged by a produce delivery truck during a car crash early Tuesday morning. The police accident report has yet to be filed so details about the crash are not completely known. An early report indicates a car and the truck crashed at State and College with the truck being forced onto the sidewalk at the marquee.
Concrete workers complete the installation of patio areas for Local Cantina being built at the corner of Cleveland Ave. and Executive Campus Drive. The restaurant’s neighbor in the same building is Bru Brothers.
The Boar sculpture is mounted on the wall above the kitchen at Barrel & Boar restaurant in Uptown Westerville. The restaurant, moving into the space at 8 North State that was home to 8 State Bistro, has its final inspections early in the week. It plans to open as soon as the inspections are complete and permits are issued.
