    Side note: those petit fours are a favorite in my office. Great stuff.

    Enjoyed a great dinner at Figlio last night. I ordered the chopped salad, beef tenderloin, and warm walnut apple cake. The salad and tenderloin were fantastic. I also enjoyed their take on a Cosmo, which was one of their drink specials.

    Figlio is one of my Columbus favorites, and they did not disappoint last night!

    So lunch yesterday ended up being at The Clarmont. The sliders were really delicious. I also got a bowl of really good old school French Onion Soup. The $10 offering from Pistachia Vera is ridiculously yummy.

    Dinner at G Michaels was simply outstanding. I had the Pork Belly appetizer and it ties with Sage’s pork belly as my favorite appetizer.
    I also had the Quail and it was cooked perfectly. There’s a lot going on on that plate, but the various flavors and textures balanced perfectly.

    No lunch today, Lynne isn’t feeling so good. But dinner at The Top is still on for tonight. I’ll let y’all know how it goes.

    Oops. No dinner at the Top. Hopefully we can get to something on Sunday night. (My hours kinda keep me from getting out much).

    We hit The Top last night and had a pretty amazing meal. I almost didn’t make reservations for a Tuesday night, but glad I did because the place was *packed* from 6:30pm to 8pm while we were there.

    I had the Lobster Bisque and Anne had the French Onion Soup. We both ordered the Prime Rib with Au Jus and Baked Potato on the side. Both had Creme Brulees for dessert. Pretty standard meal as far as steakhouses go, but everything was pretty outstanding. Sort of the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” formula I imagine. ;)

    Anyway, a great time last night, and some stellar food for a $30/person fixed price menu.

    The Pistacia Vera offering looked like a lot of stuff for $10. Am I misreading it?

    You read it right, PV always offers a generous sampler for Dine Originals Week, and you can get it to-go. Try it Tara, it’s a great deal and beautiful too.

    I so love PV. My nephew’s b-day party was a few weeks back, I dropped by and picked up about 50 bucks worth of goodies. There was almost fisticuffs between the adults and kids over the fudgies.

    I, too, love Pistacia, and live within walking distance. Yes, the little fudge cookies are all a person could want. Core, your nephew totally gets points for being sophisticated enough to have his b-day bash there instead of some kid place.

    While I really want to try Skillet’s offering (looks amazing) I think we’re going to try DeepWood tonight as we haven’t been there in a while. Also curious about their Cincinnati-style chili offering.

    I should have taken pics. It was an amazing amount of yummy for the price. My personal favorite is their take on fruitcake.

    Just grabbed a reservation for an early din din at G. Michael’s on Saturday. I can’t resist pork belly!

    Had Skillet’s menu last night – the only thing not tested was the dessert crumble (who can resist bread pudding?)…. both starters were fantastic (I had the brussel sprouts and oh my), and each of the mains were *so* well crafted. The polenta has the added distinction of being veg-friendly. If anyone was on the fence about going, lemme just pull you right off. ;)
