German Village

Located just south of downtown Columbus, this historic neighborhood was settled by a large number of German immigrants in the mid-1800s. Today, German Village has a single zoned commercial strip along Livingston Avenue; it’s mostly a residential neighborhood of red-brick homes with wrought iron fences along tree-lined, brick streets.

Walker Evans Walker Evans Best Local Coffee Shop of 2014: Stauf’s

Not every local cafe roasts their own coffee. And not every local coffee roaster operates a cafe. To help establish the distinction for 2014, we split apart last year’s survey question about “best coffee” into two categories. And Stauf’s ended up winning both best roaster and best cafe of 2014. The original Stauf’s on Grandview […]

Walker Evans Walker Evans Best Patio of 2014: Barcelona

It might sound silly, but determining the best patio in Columbus is something we’ve never included in our annual reader survey… until now. Perhaps it’s because we typically don’t think about patios much by the time December rolls around. Or perhaps it’s because we always give patios a lot of editorial love over the summer […]

Restaurant Review: Club 185

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Club 185

Club 185 doesn’t need publicity. It’s rarely empty, the spot feeds the business crowd at lunch time, and morphs into a busy bar by happy hour. Getting a seat is often a matter of timing things right; that is, arriving at the moment a table is vacated. But when you get a craving for a […]
