COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cameron Mitchell Restaurants opens its first new concept in five years – The Pearl restaurant, tavern and oyster room – today in Columbus, Ohio's Short North Arts District under executive chef Peter Chapman and general manager Amberlyn Heiney. An upscale gastropub, The Pearl serves a chef-driven menu featuring local and organic comfort ingredients.
"I am very excited about this new concept. I really enjoy the creation of something new, and there's a lot to be said about the focus that is crafted for just one brand," said restaurateur Cameron Mitchell. "Part of our company culture is to be better today than we were yesterday and better tomorrow than we were today; I know our guests will see those values come to life at The Pearl."
The menu blends American and European influences in made-from-scratch snacks, starters, hot and cold oyster preparations, entrees and pies. Special attention is given to the beverage program as each associate is a Certified Cicerone® who has developed a keen level of understanding and expertise in selecting, acquiring and serving beer.
The Pearl's vintage design and early-20th-century-influenced architecture create a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. Exposed white brick, original hardwood floors, oversized iron beams, mirrors and windows complete the urban ambiance.
The Pearl is located at 641 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio, 43215, opening for dinner nightly at 4 p.m. Weekend brunch begins Saturday, March 9. For more information, visit www.ThePearlColumbus.com or call 614.227.0151.
