A unique dining and imbibing experience inspired by the medieval feast.


Hi there!

We are Leanne and Liz, and we’re looking to expand our operation into a medieval feast inspired takeaway restaurant and called Heathen Pie. Together we have a combined 24 years experience in the service industry and have serviced bars and restaurants all over Northeast Ohio. If you’ve dined in Cleveland, you’ve probably dined with one of us gals! We have a passion for flavors, innovation and creativity that shines through every project we’ve taken on and now we have the opportunity to make our dreams come true.

Under the Chemical X Bartending & Event Planning LLP we have established a name and a reputation in the area as exciting and creative professionals. After COVID-19 we re-invented ourselves as a private caterer and event planner, specializing in curated private fine dining experiences and ticket driven events. After many successful months we realized that despite COVID-19 we needed to expand and find somewhere to call home. The brick-and-mortar space will not only be a haven for amazing, delicious food and cocktails, but it will also function as a commissary for our private events and functions, continuing to further our reach and potential for success.

Heathen Pie’s kitchen and catering features a ‘sinfully barbaric’ array of modern-medieval feast inspired cuisine. It highlights an array of traditional medieval cuisine with several course offerings including roasted meats and fish, pottages, freshly baked breads, pastries and local cheeses. The house specialty is, of course, our heathen pies, a medieval dish traditionally cooked with meat, eggs, fresh fruit and spices in a crispy flaky dough. And don’t worry, we will have vegan and vegetarian options, this isn’t the 6th century after all.

 Not only will you be able to order this awesome food from our pickup window to-go but also our unique craft cocktail menu. Of course with our extensive bar background we couldn’t neglect to include cocktails! Inspired and heavily seasonal, rotating hand-crafted cocktails designed by two master mixologists will be available to take home with your heathen pies.

We’ve finally found a space that’s perfect for our vision in the neighborhood we already both call home, the Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland. Although the majority of our business with be takeaway food the space does have room enough for a few tables, appropriate for social distancing, with room to expand outside for a patio and potential event space. Because of high volume and our love and respect for mother nature Heathen Pie promises to use only eco-friendly packaging, recycle and begin a compost program within the first year of opening.

How you are making a difference for us;

Our target goal of 120,000$ breaks down as follows;

100,000 – Design and build out of the dining and kitchen area of the building we’ve chosen in Ohio City and pre-opening operations.

20,000 – Kickstarter fees and processing and taxes.

  • If we surpass our goal by 10k we will be able to purchase a concessions trailer for our catering vehicle!
