CHA Spirits and Kitchen will debut in its new home in Ohio City, at 3800 Whitman Ave. in the space most recently occupied by the shuttered Pasta and Pastries, on Dec. 18. The move comes after an announcement this summer that CHA would close up shop in Battery Park and relocate a few miles down the road.

Fans of CHA who loved their pizzas and more can look forward to more of the same, albeit with a menu that will include more pastas and a more seasonally focused roster of small plates.

"We have a huge base is Ohio City and Hingetown, so it makes sense to move back home," owner Susan Walters, a longtime resident of the neighborhood who once ran a Spanish restaurant called KeKe there, told "Everything's going to be much more creative and much more local. We're just really excited to see everyone again."


(Original story 8/21/2017): Three years ago CHA Spirits & Pizza Kitchen took over the space previously occupied by the Battery Park Wine Bar. The pizza joint and bar run by Susan Walters, whose nickname (Cha-Cha) gave birth to the restaurant's moniker, will now itself give way to something else as it closes up shop in Battery Park this Sunday, August 27. That gives CHA fans a few more days to grab a pie but if you can't make it by this weekend rest assured you're not totally out of luck: CHA announced Saturday on Facebook that it will be reopening in a brand new but as of yet undisclosed location in Ohio City, where Walters once ran KeKe, in October. We'll keep you updated when a firm location is announced.
