19th Annual Mozart’s Festival and Open House

January 17, 2014 – 10:08 am Posted by darlene

Filed under: Events, Mozart's, Restaurants

Mozart’s will host its annual Mozart’s Festival and open house event from 12-9 p.m. Saturday, January 25, at its new location, a renovated historic restaurant space at 4784 North High Street, for the first time this year. And to mark the occasion, owners Anand and Doris Saha have chosen a Guest of Honor who truly understands the passion that goes into bringing old restaurant spaces back to life—prominent Columbus restaurateur Elizabeth Lessner.

Lessner’s restaurants Betty’s and Surly Girl Saloon help revitalize the Short North, and her Tip Top Kitchen & Cocktails, Dirty Frank’s and Jury Room did the same Downtown. This year, she’s got plans to open a second location of Dirty Frank’s in a former Coney shop on the West Side and to resurrect the beloved Lazarus Chintz Room.

“We wanted to acknowledge someone we relate to, an industry veteran who also understands the challenges and risk involved in rescuing buildings that have long been forgotten,” Anand Saha says.

The 13,000-square-foot Mission-style building now home to Mozart’s was originally built in 1934 as the Beechwold Tavern. The Beechwold’s opulent ballrooms hosted countless dances, dinner parties and live music concerts. When the Sahas purchased the building in 2012, it hadn’t been used as a restaurant space since the 1960s. The couple spent months painstakingly restoring its beautiful dining rooms and ballrooms—including creating a new cocktail lounge called the Beechwold Tavern to pay homage to building’s original incarnation. The new, bigger space allows Mozart’s to put an increased focus on the restaurant aspect of the business, which has grown from an intimate piano café to a bustling full-service European dining room.

The new space also ensures this 19th annual Mozart Festival and Open House will be bigger and better than ever. The annual festival celebrating the birthday of the restaurant’s namesake, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, has grown from its humble beginnings of 200 guests to hosting more than 2,000 in recent years. Guests are traditionally treated to live classical music, samples of Mozart’s decadent pastries and canapés, and a ceremonial cake-cutting.

“It’s a celebration of our love of the arts, music and pastries,” Anand Saha says.

Lessner says she’s excited the event will give her a chance to toast her longtime friend’s beautiful new space.

“Anand is a beloved friend and mentor to me, I’ve known him since before Betty’s opened, as I’ve been a longtime fan of his delicious desserts and coffee. He’s a wonderful advocate and cheerleader for neighborhoods and his industry, and his desserts are part of what has made Columbus into a world-class culinary city,” Lessner says.

WHAT: 19th Annual Mozart’s Festival and Open House

WHEN: 12-9 p.m. Saturday, January 25, 2014

WHERE: Mozart’s, 4784 N. High St., Clintonville, 614-725-5202

ABOUT MOZART’S: Anand and Doris Saha opened Mozart’s Bakery & Piano Café in Clintonville in 1995 as a way to bring the best of their home country, Austria, to Ohio. Over the years and with the support of the community, Mozart’s has grown famous for authentic European foods and a unique atmosphere. Mozart’s is a proud supporter of arts and culture, as well as a community advocate in Clintonville. The Sahas have helped raise more than $250,000 over the years for the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center, and are honored to support many local schools, nonprofits, churches and other community organizations.

In The News: Basi Italia on Columbus

November 11, 2013 – 11:08 am Posted by Katharine Moore

Filed under: Basi Italia, Restaurants

ColumbusUnderground posted a terrific profile on the occasion of Basi Italia’s 10th anniversary.

A visit to Basi Italia today is shockingly similar to a visit a decade ago, which is not something anyone can often say of a restaurant. Sure, the layout has changed over time (a back patio has been added), and the prices have invariably risen, but that quality that has always made Basi special is still very much present, and it’s this thread of consistency that keeps the people coming back for more.”
