ORANGE, Ohio — Kona Grill, a casual restaurant specializing in Asian-inspired food and sushi, will open its first Northeast Ohio location at Pinecrest.

“Kona Grill was on a very short list of restaurants we targeted early on for Pinecrest, and we are delighted we’ve finally crossed the finish line with them,” Heather Kovello, vice president for the developer, Fairmount Properties, said in a release. “Their concept is very much on-trend in that it’s experiential on every level which will promote the most enjoyable visits for its guests.”

The 7,300-square feet restaurant, whose offerings include miso-sake sea bass and avocado egg rolls, will have dining for 300 people and include a patio facing the center’s one-acre village green.

Kona Grill, a 43-store chain with a location in Columbus, joins a growing list of dining establishments new to the area that have signed on at the massive 58-acre mixed-use project, currently under construction at I-271 and Harvard Road. Also on board:

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, specializing in wood-fired steaks, burgers and seafood

Pinstripes, a bistro with bowling and bocce

City Works Eatery and Pourhouse, known for its extensive craft beer selection

Fusian, featuring fast casual build-your-own sushi

BiBiBop, an Asian rice bowl spot similar to Chipotle

Two restaurants already established in Northeast Ohio, Red the Steakhouse and Flipside, are also coming to Pinecrest.

The $230 million project is scheduled to open in the spring of 2018. It will include first to market stores such as REI and West Elm, as well as a Whole Foods grocery store, 10-screen Silverspot Cinemas, AC by Marriott Hotel, nearly 90 apartments and 150,000 square feet of office space.

Village officials got a behind the fence tour of the $230 million, 58-acre Pincrest mixed-use development under construction at 27349 Harvard Rd. The event was held in a heated tent on a rainy day in the middle of the active construction site which developers say is the largest active project currently underway in Ohio.

“The vision is to really create a new downtown for the east side of Cleveland,” said Chris Salata, principal of development company Fairmount Properties.

The 58 acre development site, located just east of I-271 between Harvard Road and Chagrin Boulevard, will have 400,000 square feet of retail space. It’s already 70 percent filled, Salata said, with tenants including specialty bowling alley Pinstripes, Silverspot Cinemas, Whole Foods, REI, several restaurants and the hotel AC by Marriott.

We hope to provide some basic information regarding TIFs and the Pinecrest development to assist in clearing up this misinformation. Click here for details.
