Popular Cleveland Pickle Adding West Side Shop




Cleveland Pickle (850 Euclid Ave., 216-575-1111, www.clevelandpickle.com) chef and owner Josh Kabat signed a lease last Friday to open another location for his popular downtown sandwich shop. Located in the former home of Westside Yoga Studio (17100 Detroit Ave.), the Lakewood Pickle should be up and running by November 1, he says.

"This is a brand that we want to continue to develop and have five, six or seven locations hopefully," Kabat says.

At 1,600 square feet, the shop is more than twice the size of the downtown spot, providing Kabat with commissary space that will helpful when executing future expansion plans.

Kabat and his fiance Kiaran Daley opened the original Pickle 16 months ago near the corner of Euclid and E. 9th and has been "on a roll" ever since. Kabat likes to call the concept "a restaurant disguised as a sandwich shop" owing to the fusion of chef-driven techniques with the deli format.
