In late 2016, the Greater Columbus Convention Center (GCCC) chose Levy Restaurants as its new food-service provider. Levy joins the center in partnership with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, one of Columbus’ most successful restaurateurs. Cameron Mitchell Restaurants will help Levy distinctively provide restaurant-quality food and service, an innovative approach, access to signature chefs and a local network of suppliers, from which 85% of all products used by Levy are sourced.

Groups that have meetings at the GCCC in years to come can expect many local touches throughout their food and beverage service. Check out how Levy has incorporated spirits and mixers from local providers, Watershed Distillery and Root 23, into some of its banquet beverages! These recipes are courtesy of Levy Restaurants Bartender Molly-Lynn Christina Dale.
