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. […]

Review: De Novo on the Park

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Review: De Novo on the Park

De Novo on the Park had a long history not on the park (Columbus Commons), but near the park on High Street. It moved its digs across High to a lovely spot that overlooks the green space. The new space is huge — almost cavernous, but the restaurant itself is too open and windowed to […]

Irish Pubs are less ubiquitous now, but Three-Legged Mare still holds down the scene in the Arena district. And it has tacos. The Mare is built […]

Breakfast Review: What the Waffle?

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Breakfast Review: What the Waffle?

The What the Waffle story starts at the Columbus Food Hub. The Food Hub isn’t new. According to its website, it was founded in 2013 by Allen Scott, as an offshoot of his United Provision Meat, Seafood & Catering Company. United Provision itself is decades old, with a long history of offering well-priced, painfully fresh […]
