Harvey & Ed’s pays homage to CMR President David Miller and VP of Ocean Prime Mitch Miller’s father and uncle – best friends and brothers-in-law. The two could often be found at their favorite delicatessens enjoying each other’s company over a good cocktail and a plate of food. Similarly, David Miller and CMR Founder Cameron Mitchell have traveled together for the past 20 years, experiencing and comparing delis from New York to Boston, and from Chicago to Beverly Hills.
“Columbus offers one of the best dining scenes in the nation, and we are eager to introduce a concept that is unlike anything currently available in Central Ohio,” said David Miller. “Harvey &
Ed’s menu focuses on taking classic delicatessen favorites and elevating them with a modern
culinary twist. We are excited for our guests to experience the unique dishes handcrafted by our
talented culinary team.”
The 4,100-square foot space offers a traditional deli counter for carryout and catering orders, as well as table seating for approximately 140 guests. The restaurant also has an energetic bar, which serves handcrafted cocktails, wine, house sodas and egg creams. Harvey & Ed’s serves lunch and dinner daily along with brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Daily happy hour will be offered throughout the restaurant from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. with a specially-priced menu and beverage offerings.
