A taste of Italy rolling into the Lebanon area

February 24, 2013 by  

A taste of Italian street food will soon be rolling in to the Lebanon area as Piada Italian Street Food prepares to open its doors to the public later this year in Mason, located approximately 8.5 miles southwest of Lebanon. The Italian restaurant will be located at 9317 Mason-Montgomery Road.

While there is no word yet on when exactly citizens can expect to line up for a mouthwatering Piada, which is an Italian flatbread stuffed with the customer’s choice of fillings, it is likely that banner printing, poster printing and other advertising methods will soon announce the Grand Opening of the restaurant in the weeks or months to follow, as the store seeks to spread the Italian flavor.

The Piada, for which the store is famous, is made from olive oil and flour and baked on a stone grill. Customers can select from various fillings, such as salmon, stea,k and Italian sausage, as well as numerous vegetables and sauces, including Pesto, Alfredo or Pomodoro. Guests move through a serving line and order their Piada to their own desired specifications. They can also select from a variety of side dishes, including Italian chips with an artichoke or spinach dip, Piada sticks, chopped salad, or calamari.

Piada Italian Street Food was the creation of Chris Doody, who is also a co-founder of two other restaurant chains, Bravo and Brio. Piada currently has seven locations in the Columbus area, two in Northeasern Ohio, and one Centerville location.
