Restaurant Review: City Egg

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: City Egg

It’s early in the game, but City Egg is thinking in terms of plurals. Its website is already CityEggRestaurants.com (with an “s”) and it displays a “locations” button at the top of the page. But really, there’s just one City Egg. And it launched in June in Columbus on the northwest side. City Egg is […]

Restaurant Review: Red Door BBQ

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Red Door BBQ

Red Door BBQ is a sign that Franklinton is an evolving neighborhood: the area is entering the early revitalization stage that happens about a decade before gentrification pushes out the local inhabitants. The eatery opened with a splash this spring, just in time for barbecue season, and has already scored a spot on local BBQ […]

Restaurant Review: Hot Chicken Takeover (Clintonville Version)

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Hot Chicken Takeover (Clintonville Version)

There’s a little stretch on High Street, up at the North end in Clintonville, that is growing suspiciously similar to the North Market. First, it got a Jeni’s. Now Hot Chicken Takeover has moved in, and right next door? Signs for an impending Little Eater. Not that it’s got the same character as the Market. […]

But, it’s attracted the loving attention of the local eating population. The original joint, acclaimed for its pizza, was […]

Treat to Try: Golden Donuts & Diner

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Golden Donuts & Diner

National Donut Day came and went at the very beginning of June. Honestly, pretty much any day can be donut day around here. Donuts are an easy splurge, and Columbus has lots of solid choices. Golden Donuts & Diner does it old-school. It’s on the South Side, operating a traditional diner and donut operation, while […]

Restaurant Review: Palle by Moretti

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Palle by Moretti

For all its orneriness, Palle by Moretti is prima facie innocence and cuteness. Its booths are upholstered in sunny yellow. Chairs are in rainbow hues, and sunny sunflowers accent the decor. You might not notice that the servers wear shirts with two meatballs neatly placed in the nipple position. Or that the ladies’ room is […]
