Restaurant Review: Little Eater (Clintonville Edition)

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Little Eater (Clintonville Edition)

Little Eater is enough to turn anyone into a salad person. In fact, it’s enough to inspire serious consideration of a meatless lifestyle. For decades, the vegetarian scene was dominated by beany, bready, starchy things. While that’s certainly fine for some palates, it’s not for everyone. In its latest project in Clintonville, Little Eater is […]

Ohio’s Own: Woody’s Original Clamlube

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Woody’s Original Clamlube

For whatever reason, Woody’s Original Clamlube is not something you’d typically guess was an Ohio’s Own product. It looks more like something from California, which makes sense, because the lube also boasts California roots. Evidently, it’s local to both California and Ohio, with a label that proclaims its origins as Columbus, Ohio and San Francisco, […]

It’s been a season of switcheroos for the North Market. While its homegrown Little Eater and Hot Chicken Takeover operations have been spreading their wings (poultry pun possibilities noted) and opening satellite locations, the market recently imported a Momo Ghar spin-off from Morse Road’s international Saraga Market.

Asempe’s pop-ups offer, at least, predictable hours on Wednesdays, so you know when to visit. But, should you develop a […]

Restaurant Review: Pub Mahone Downtown

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Pub Mahone Downtown

Pub Mahone doesn’t scream Ireland at you. Inside the doors, at eye-level and at first glance, there are no obvious lucky charms, no clovers. Rather than something like Dropkick Murphys, the ambient background music might feature classic seventies rock. But look up, and there are lots of iconic flags fastened to the ceiling, along with […]

Unusual Eats: The Chivito Sandwich

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Unusual Eats: The Chivito Sandwich

Cuban sandwiches are good, but like Rubens and the Bahn Mi, they’ve had their day in the sun. Enter the Chivito. The discovery came, as discoveries often do, as the result of a happy accident. The original mission was to get empanadas from Cakes and More. The South American bakery has launched a worthy fried […]

Ohio’s Own: Kalezees Kale Chips

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Kalezees Kale Chips

Somehow, kale is still a thing. That’s pretty good news. In the world of food trends, it’s nice when something that’s hip is also freakishly nutritious. That’s not the case for mocha lattes and high octane craft beer. Raw kale is still frequently featured in smoothies and salads here in town. You don’t see it […]
