Portia’s Diner Coming to Clintonville
A rumored addition to the plant-based dining scene is coming to fruition. Portia’s Café owner Portia Yiamouyiannis plans to open Portia’s Diner in the former Whole World Natural Restaurant & Bakery space in Clintonville. Whole World, a vegetarian restaurant serving Columbus for nearly 40 years, closed at 3269 N. High St. in April 2017. According to ThisWeek Community News, the new vegan spot will serve traditional diner fare — pancakes, hamburgers, desserts — with Yiamouyiannis’ spin on it. Look for it to open by the end of the year.
