Restaurant Review: Ye Asian Bistro

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Ye Asian Bistro

For a while there, Chinese buffets were everywhere. While quality control was an issue, you couldn’t argue with the quantity for a price tag that was typically less than ten bucks. After years and years of existence as a Chinese buffet, the new operators at 139 Graceland quietly did something new with the restaurant space. […]

Restaurant Review: Standard Hall

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Standard Hall

There are not many booths at Standard Hall, but the seats are worth fighting for. Perfectly curved for 10 percent extra privacy and situated facing the big TV, it’s tempting to #OccupyBooth for hours. That would be ideal. It would probably be socially acceptable too, if a dedicated diner could stay on an eating and […]

Restaurant Review: D&L Sandwich Kings

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: D&L Sandwich Kings

A new sandwich shop made its official debut this fall. D&L Sandwich Kings has opened its doors on East Main, serving something a little more special than your regular deli fare. It does its own house brisket and corned beef (and a few other things) with homespun style. You know you’re close to the establishment […]

Poke hit Columbus hard in 2016, or “poked” it, rather. First there were pop-up pokeries. Then right at the end of the year, a couple of dedicated poke places opened up on the North side. Pokébap was the first of the permanent operations to make its debut, up in Dublin. The dining forecast for 2017 […]

Restaurant Review: Momo Ghar

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Momo Ghar

Saraga International Grocery is a bona fide wonderland on Morse Road. First, it’s huge. Second, every aisle features the cuisine of different countries. In fact, so far we’ve found Oreos from three different countries in three different aisles. Third, it’s home to Momo Ghar. There actually seems to be several spots-within-the-spot. There’s a Mexican bakery […]
