Restaurant Review: Factory on 4th

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Factory on 4th

The scoop on Factory on 4th is pretty well known. It made its debut inside the Wonder Bread building as Cray back in 2014. It struggled. A restaurant television show performed a makeover this spring. Now it’s called Factory on 4th. The post-makeover decor is nicer. Having never been a fan of graffiti art, the […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Big Mamma’s Burritos

Big Mamma’s Burritos hit Columbus this year, at first with a cooperative project at Park Street Patio & Saloon, and now with another location on Grandview Avenue (a third spot is coming later this year to South High Street).

Restaurant Review: Estilo Brazil

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Estilo Brazil

For better or for worse, most local eaters associate Brazilian food with all-you-can eat steakhouses. They’re fine establishments where Golden Corral meets Ruth’s Chris, so the price tags are upscale. For the fee, an endless parade of food is delivered to fans of elastic waistbands. It’s not for everyone, that’s for sure. So step back […]

Restaurant Review: Tacos Fogoncito

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Tacos Fogoncito

If there’s a famous taco joint in town, it’s probably Los Guachos. The Food Network put it on the map when it celebrated the top five tacos in the nation, and Los Guachos made that list, earning kudos for its al pastor version of the classic. Unsurprisingly, the place is popular with local eaters too. […]

Restaurant Review: Leone’s Pizza

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Leone’s Pizza

Are you ready for more pizza? The first visit to Leone’s was hot on the heels of a stinging defeat at the first annual Best Bites: Pizza event. Guests at the event voted for Cincinnati-based chain Dewey’s as the best pie in town; better than any local mom n’ pop operation. Ouch. Dewey’s puts out […]
