COLUMBUS, Ohio (COLUMBUS BUSINESS FIRST) — Creole 2 Geaux is going to the Arena District.

It’s now adding a second site at 401 N. Front St., the former home of Veranico, in the Arena District.

“We love our space at the East Market, but there are some things we can’t do there,” chef and owner Janvier Ward said. “I’ve always had big dreams.”
