Treat to Try: Cream & Sugar

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Cream & Sugar

Cream & Sugar is the sort of place any neighborhood would kill to have. It’s a little stop you can hit with friends or family for a quick, affordable treat.

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Tio’s Tacos and Tequila

Tio’s Tacos and Tequila opened up in De Novo’s original High Street digs. The debut typically inspires the following response from seasoned Downtown diners: “Weird.

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Westies in Clintonville

Westies set up shop in Wine Bistro’s old digs in Clintonville. Gone is all the wine-centric decor, although surely Westies’ attractive bar could count as “decor,” and the place still serves a range of beer, wine and cocktails.

Restaurant Review: Lupo on Arlington

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Lupo on Arlington

The drive to Lupo can be a little intimidating. Nestled in Upper Arlington, the path to its door winds around ginormous million dollar mansions with professionally manicured lawns.
