The Harp hosted restaurant advocates and Cleveland City Council members last Thursday during our Local Restaurant Alliance meeting. Thanks to Sam Lindsley of Michael Symon Restaurants and Nick Kostis of Pickwick & Frolic for representing the ORA Board of Directors and to Cleveland City Council President Kevin Kelley for speaking to attendees. The ORA Local Restaurant Alliance in Cleveland has grown to more than 100 advocates.
Restaurateurs, food service professionals and vendors meet monthly in downtown Columbus and Central Ohio as part of the ORA’s Local Restaurant Alliance. The group hosts meetings with representatives and other officials to discuss important local issues including neighborhood development, workforce, changes to the law that will impact the restaurant industry and human resources topics. Chair of the local alliance is Randy Sokol and Vice Chair is Robert Lee.
