Restaurant Review: Double Comfort

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Double Comfort

It’s impossible to talk about Double Comfort without first talking about its mission. The restaurant donates its proceeds to the local food pantries. Not just 10% of your purchase, or a one time, special donation: according to its website (and the proprietor’s sister, who was bussing tables) the cash it has after the expenses goes […]

Ohio’s Own: Darista Dips

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Darista Dips

Darista Dips took the local dip scene (dip scene?) by storm earlier this summer with the splashy debut of three cute-looking, cute-named dips.
