Columbus’ Gateway will soon be adding another restaurant to its mix. This time, it’s daytime café First Watch. The 195-unit chain has begun construction in the southern entertainment and restaurant hub of the Ohio State University’s campus at 1567 North High Street in Columbus, at the northwest corner of North High Street and West Tenth Avenue. The space is the southern-most end of a building occupied by, among others, Panera Bread, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, AT&T, Sprint, and the Aveda Institute. First Watch is working diligently toward a Summer 2017 opening.

In addition to this new location in Columbus, First Watch will be opening its very first location in the greater Toledo area around the same time, with construction set to begin in early April.
