Treat to Try: Le Chocoholique Sampler

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Le Chocoholique Sampler

Le Chocoholique is a Short North destination known for its coffee, chocolates and cocktails. If you’re an efficiency freak, you can kill at least two birds with one stone by trying out a chocolate sampler that features a variety of its boozy flavors.

Restaurant Review: Elia Athenian Grill

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Elia Athenian Grill

Elia Athenian Grill seems like a good addition to the busy scene at Broad & High. Just off the corner (close to the Scientology outlet), it’s a fast-casual joint that offers counter service, and the staffers call out your order by its number when it’s ready for pick-up. For starters, yay for the number thing. […]

However, having chosen the Peanut Butter & Chocolate version, the absence of coffee flavor was conceivably a good thing. It’s not clear how all those flavors might merge in […]

Restaurant Review: Biscuit & Branch

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Biscuit & Branch

Biscuit & Branch, the new joint in the Short North, starts as a visual adventure. Darn near everything is hued in dove grey, which makes it different from dominant restaurant design styles that more typically emphasize lots of woodwork or color. Grey grey grey. It’s pretty though, and not institutional. Also, most of the seating […]

Ohio’s Own: Nina’s Honey

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Nina’s Honey

There is a lot of Ohio honey out there, and, in spite of the legitimate bee population problem, buckeye state honey is pretty easy to find. But German Village Honey? That’s a new breed of bird, or bug, rather. That’s honey from the very center of the Columbus urban core, from a place where you […]
