A Confusing Case of the Same-Named Delis

Posted By on Wed, May 30, 2007 at 1:06 PM

Chaos may be the plat du jour come June, when long-time Cleveland chef Heather Campbell opens her Ohio City deli and catering ops, Dish Global Deli (1834 W. 25th St., in the former Opa space). The name is frightfully similar to the one already in use by long-time Cleveland chef Donna Chriszt, at her recently opened Tremont deli and catering ops, Dish Deli & Catering (1112 Kenilworth Ave., in the former Take-A-Bite space). Chriszt, whose credits include Jeso, J Café, and OZ, says she has given Campbell a “friendly” notification that the name is taken. Campbell, whose resume includes a four-year stint at the Fulton Bar & Grill, as well as at Johnny Mango, Heck’s Café, and the Waterstreet Grill, says she isn’t concerned. “If the State of Ohio doesn’t care,” she said, referring to the business registration process, “I don’t either.” Launching a new biz is tough enough. Confusing your potential customers doesn’t seem like it would make it any easier. -- Elaine T. Cicora
