New owners take over at Smith's Row


Follow The Republic:


While expanded hours and enhancements are coming to Smith's Row Food and Spirits, the new owners of the two-story bistro in downtown Columbus promise they won't try to fix what isn't broken. 

"We’ve been very impressed by the restaurant, so when we found out it was for sale, we wanted to preserve it," said Steve Provenza, 45, who purchased the restaurant at 418 Fourth St. with his wife, Jennifer Cook-Provenza, 28.  "We wanted to keep Smith’s Row as an icon, as a centerpiece to downtown Columbus."
