Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
Piada Italian Street Food, the fast casual creation of restaurateur Chris Doody that has attracted nationwide attention with its fresh, healthy, high-quality Italian fare and made-to-order delivery system, is opening 4 locations in the Cincinnati & Dayton markets this fall. The restaurants will be located in Hyde Park, Kettering, Beavercreek & Mason.
Each restaurant will offer a huge grand opening promotion; the first 100 guests on opening day of each restaurant will receive free Piada for a year. Visit mypiada.com for details about the promotion.
A long-standing passion for Italian food led Doody to the streets of Italy and back to create a one-of-a-kind Italian eatery that appeals to a broad range of time-challenged, budget-weary, and health-conscious consumers. Piada has seven locations open in Columbus and was recently announced one of the “Hot Concepts” in Nation’s Restaurant News.
“We feel that despite their hectic lifestyles, our guests shouldn’t have to sacrifice freshness, quality and ambiance for speed or value,” says Doody, co-founder of the Bravo and Brio restaurant chains. The ordering process takes just 60 seconds and the average customer check is less than $9.
Piada Hyde Park will be the first of the four restaurants to open on September 20, 2013, at 3780 Paxton Avenue. The approximate 3,000 square-foot restaurant will seat 56 inside and 62 on the patio. The restaurant will employ a staff of 40. The Kettering restaurant located at 4397 Far Hills Avenue will open on September 27, 2013.
The interior design is a blend of white subway tiles, Carrara marble, brushed aluminum, and painted brick with warm, custom hewn-wood furniture and stained concrete floors, the restaurants’ sophisticated, contemporary European design is a dramatic departure from the typical old-world Italian décor.
Guests choose from three entrées: the Piada, a stone-grilled, thin-crusted dough made from organic flour and extra virgin olive oil; a chopped salad; or a pasta bowl. They customize their entrées with a variety of grilled items ranging from steak and Italian sausage to salmon; sauces such as Pomodoro, Alfredo and pesto; a selection of sautéed and fresh vegetables; as well as salad toppings such as cheese and pancetta.
Street sides include Parmigiano Reggiano, pepperoni and artichoke Piada sticks with dipping sauce; Italian chips served with warm artichoke and spinach dip; calamari; and lobster bisque, tomato basil and wedding soup. Beverages include red and white wine, beer, Italian sodas, teas, soft drinks and bottled water.
The restaurant, a popular spot for both lunch and dinner, attracts a broad range of customers, from the food savvy Gen X and Millennial to families with young children, baby boomers and business people.
The restaurant will be open from 10:45 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. More information is available at Mypiada.com.
