hey y'all, i know some of you heard rumbling about this before, but i just wanted to let everyone know that the episode of "anthony bourdain: no reservations" featuring columbus' own clever crow pizza will be airing monday night on travel channel. if you're familiar with the show, you know this is gonna be cool. if you're familiar with the pizza, you know this is gonna fucking rule! be sure to tune in to the episode and support what gary does in his kitchen. plus you'll get to see other columbus culinary greats like jeni (sharing her ice creams) and warren from snowville creamery while we all sat around circus devouring pie after pie of clever crow pizza. it was a fucking awesome day when they were there to film it, i'm sure it's gonna make some fun television. and if you haven't had it before, i promise you, after you watch the segment, you'll be dying to find out what we all already know. it's the best gourmet pizza this town has right now . . .

check out the preview of the episode

hey y"all . . .
tonight at circus we'll be watching the episode at the bar. punk rock karaoke will be stalled off til 11.
gary will be there doing a little meet & greet while the show's on. he'll also be handing out samples of some of his pizzas.
but the kitchen is still officially closed on mondays, so don't plan on having a full dinner there . . .

Totally killed my twenty year love affair with Adriatico's pizza.

good to see columbus on the show..

although some early responses on my facebook feed didn't like how the show portrayed the town (outside of the two restaurants.. PS what was the first one?)

also great to see the high five kitchen put to good use.

Clever Crow is without a doubt the best pizza in Columbus.

DVR'd the show, but from the responses I'm reading on the internet I'm pretty sure it's going to piss me off.

Columbus "secret": Lee Garden next to Kihachi has great Chinese food, dim sum, they're open late (2 or 3AM?) and the owner is super nice.

Also, Clever Crow is the best.

Never been to Kihachi. It was kinda cool seeing all the tat'ed/punky looking folks at Circus. Kinda made Columbus look tough instead of douchy.

If Columbus wants to eat at the Big Kids table, it's going to have to learn to take "disparaging" comments much more in stride. Are people really that insecure about somebody thinking Columbus is a backwater?

That dude in Michigan with the duck prosciutto- goddamn that sounded good.

The tuna collar from that japanese place looked good as hell, and I'm not big on phish.

Any recommendations for that pizza joint? It all looked so good!

I can attest for Kihachi. The menu's different from day to day and completely in Japanese so you'll need your server to translate. No tuna collar or horse mackerel liver the night my wife and I stopped in, but the chef's dinner was one of the best meals of my life.

Now I just need a recommendation for some good pork belly? Anyone?

Just being on Bourdain was good for Columbus. I don't see where the complaints are coming from. He wasn't in town to sample our cultural treasures, just eat at some funky restaurants recommended to him by local food blogs and give a lecture.

seriously, you can order ANYthing on the menu and be impressed, but a good rule of thumb with gary's stuff is the more adventurous it sounds, the better it's going to be.

my personal faves are the crow style sweet corn-with-sausage which they showed in the episode last night (which has been recently amended to include thinly sliced potatoes) and the non-traditional sausage with pickled bell peppers. he's also recently changed up the pesto pizza with sundried tomatoes, and it's better than ever for a veg option.

but seriously, dude can make me eat things i KNOW i'll hate only to end up falling in love with them. the "marinated grapes on brie" pizza proved that to me. god i want that special to come back . . .

Have been wanting to try Clever Crow for months, but the Bourdain chatter and an open weekend night finally gave the opportunity to go and see what the fuss is all about. Went with the sweet corn pizza with home-made sausage and it was amazing. So good. The special pizza that night sounded good too, but had already sold out.

Our server was a really nice guy, very helpful with the menu items, fun to chat with. If you use Facebook, his recommendation was to follow Clever Crow on Facebook- link - because the specials are typically announced there.

that was most likely red. he's one of the owners of the bar.

and the corn&sausage is one of the most perfect pies columbus has ever had to offer . . .

Kihachi recommendation seconded, although to get a fair shake you pretty much have to call a day ahead and request the chef prepare a special meal for you (there is a japanese term for this that doesn't really have a great translation). I agree with the Restaurant Widow http://www.restaurantwidow.com/2005/12/dine_dish_5_asi.html that the appetizer menu is the way to go, but if the chef offers you something, eat it. We watched Ryuji Kimura cook 15 different things with just a pair of chopsticks. when he noticed our interest, he wrapped and fried a sweet-water shrimp, presented it to us and said "you eat everything: legs, tail... even the eyes if you are brave." shrimp eyes taste gooooooood.

can't wait to see this episode or eat at clever crow pizza. what are the vegan/vegetarian options (for those of us that inherited non-meat-eating in-laws)???

There is a vegetarian (that I believe is vegan) and a crow style (which is cheeseless). I inherited lactose intolerance in the fam and I believe both of those were ordered.

They just aired a Cleveland ep (whole show, btw) with Harvey Pekar. I have to say I've got huge mad respect for Bourdain now--hadn't really watched too often. Be sure to check it out when if you get a chance.

Polish Boys, West Side Market, Soul food, German sausage -fuck yes.

Me too.

Fun fact: Kraft Cheeses at any grocery store have 0g of lactose!!!!
You can do pizza and shit at home now, and it ain't too bad. (not to take away from anyone ever visiting Clever Crow...just sayin')

its been a fucking enormous boost to his sales. he's had to hire another guy in the kitchen, the floor staff has gone from one bartender/server to 3 during the busiest part of the day and two at all other times. there were a couple of days that he ran out of crusts before closing time, but he's been going out of his way to make sure that's not happening any more. this past saturday was insane for a little while, and more than once recently i've seen every single seat on the floor and at the bar filled. so fucking congrats to gary . . .

Coming soon to the North Market

The North Market is pleased to welcome a trio of new businesses that round out our merchant mix and put our occupancy at capacity:

Clever Crow Pizza Gary Robinette and wife Brooke Howell-Robinette will be turning out their hearty cornmeal crust pizzas that were featured in the Travel Channel show, No Reservations. The couple also smokes and cures their own meats and pickles and cures local vegetables for toppings on the pizzas which will be available for dine-in, carryout or take-and-bake one day soon!

Is Clever Crow moving out of Circus to go to the North Market or will they be operating in 2 locations?
