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.
With a liquor option for 8 State on the November ballot, there is the possibility of Barrel and Boar taking over the closed restaurant. Barrel and Boar’s heritage includes Yoho’s, a BBQ restaurant on Westerville Rd at Oakland Park.
Phatt Taco announced on its Facebook page last week that it is coming to Uptown Westerville taking over the space where Twist on Olives is on the brick walk beside Java Central. No opening date set as it can’t begin converting the space until Twist on Olives moves.
