Restaurant Review: SIP Local

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: SIP Local

SIP slipped right into the Clintonville brewing space left behind after the Actual Brewing debacle. SIP Local, a branch of Somewhere in Particular Brewing, kept the physical features of the address the same, but the decor comes from a different angle. Gone is the science theme and narwhal skeleton.

Betty’s Dressing is a famous Ohio thing.  We’re not talking about the bygone beloved Short North Betty’s; this Betty hails from Northwestern Ohio.  This revelation came as something of a surprise. In spite the fact that more than half of my life has been spent in the Buckeye State, Betty and her dressing were heretofore unknown […]

Restaurant Review: Ninja Grill

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Ninja Grill

Treat to Try: Omega Cinnamon Rolls

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Omega Cinnamon Rolls

The longstanding Omega Artisan Baking has been artisan long before artisan was a thing. The North Market mainstay is renowned for its croissants, challah, and a host of breads and treats made in small batches.  And although Omega makes lots of (artisan) things, it’s also on everyone’s Cinnamon Roll Bucket List. In fact, “everyone” includes national […]

Restaurant Review: District North

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: District North

District North set up shop in the Atlas Building, one of Downtown’s more notable structures, last fall. The Atlas isn’t notable because of hype or glitz, it’s notable because it’s historic. The building was designed in 1905 by Frank Packard, a renown local architect. Somehow, the structure has survived a history that includes foreclosure, code […]
