COLUMBUS, Ohio (COLUMBUS BUSINESS FIRST) — A Grandview Heights restaurant has closed for good.

Cleaver on Thursday announced that its location at 1099 W. 1st Ave. is closed, effective immediately.

Owner Tony Tanner, in a Facebook post, said there weren’t enough sales to support the venture going forward. He encouraged customers to continue to buy meat, albeit in the uncooked form, from his Butcher & Grocer shop a few doors down in the same center.

Cleaver opened in August 2020. Tanner also was a partner in The Old Spot, which was the restaurant that opened in that same space in 2019 but closed in the first few months of the pandemic.
