    Columbus “leaders” blew them off because they were focused on the Hilton and raising parking rates so Columbus residents can subsidize the Hilton hotel. That 21C hotel should be in Columbus, but Columbus leaders like the movers and shakers who made the “We’re #1 college president in the country video” fucked it up.

    In the same vein, I heard a very interesting tale about how those “leaders,” including the mayor, totally blew off and outright rejected IKEA for Downtown.
    A.

    now it’s time for pitchforks.

    I heard that our city leaders blew off the relocation efforts of a major pitchfork manufacturer from Kansas, so nix that idea too.

    walker is funny!!!
    how about torches? we can make those ourselves, right? Columbus, home of the DIY, indie crazed mob of hipster ilk.

    Hipster torches?

    Hmmm… home brewed ethanol made from local organic corn, soaked in fair trade organic cotton wrapped around hand crafted steel rods reclaimed from building debris?

    perhaps we should just all wear these around town:

    i think it would create an image real fast.

    Do they make those with the middle finger instead of the index finger extended?

    That’s the Detroit model.

    I went to Circus for some Clever Crow last Saturday, and they’ve gotten a huge bump in business since the show. I couldn’t be happier for Gary. Well, maybe if he hadn’t run out of the brie and grape special before I got there.

    We went Friday. I had the brie, grape & rosemary – delicious! Can’t wait to go back.

    Best pizza I’ve had in Columbus in 10 years of living here. Girlfriend said Hounddog’s was still her #1 so we went Saturday. The Smokin’ Joe style was pretty freaking good but I really liked the style and ingredients of Clever Crow. Recommend a half and half so you can try two different topping arrangements.

    It’s really hard to compare Hounddog’s and Circus – when I was on All Sides on WOSU a few weeks ago, the topic of pizza came up. I think Clever Crow should be referred to more as “dinner pie.” Hounddog’s is identifiable as pizza, while Crow (although awesome, and delicious) isn’t traditional enough to be put squarely in the pizza category (at least in my humble opinion).

    all of that being said, I think Gary is awesome and i love what he’s doing. If I had a million dollars for him to open up a pickle and charcuterie store, I would sign it over in a heartbeat.

    I understand what you mean, but I’d put in the Chicago-style category if I had to put it somewhere. Definitely hard to compare Clever Crow to Hounddog’s or any other places because of the style as you mentioned. But overall, I really like Gary’s philosophy.

    As much as I hate to resurrect this thread, after digesting this for awhile I just have to say one thing….

    I was so excited about Bourdain coming here. I know that Chef Kimura and Gary from Clever Crow put a ton of work into the day. Bourdain had been flying for like 10 straight hours before walking right into the restaurant, and Ruhlman drove right here from Cleveland. Bourdain looked like he could fall asleep on his feet; I felt sorry for him.

    I know the show wasn’t the ideal, but the city’s reaction has been a huge embarrassment. I thought it was so awesome to be able to help connect Bourdain with my favorite restaurant in Columbus and pretty much feel now that you who have been wanking and whining about it are ungrateful jerks. Yes, that includes you government entities with enormous – and enormously worthless – budgets.

    As someone who has voluntarily written a website for the city of Columbus for almost 6 years (usually spending more time on it than at my paying job) it has totally taken the wind out of my sails. For years, I watched episodes of No Reservations and thought “omg, wouldn’t it be awesome if I could be a fixer for him? but he would never come to Columbus.”

    Shame on you and grow up. We’re a farming community. it’s awesome. don’t take yourselves so seriously because in the end you just end up sounding – and looking – worse.

    You have also shit on Gary and Chef Kimura’s excitement at being feature nationally.

    We get national coverage as a city with a growing food scene and you shit all over that. Every awesome city has to start somewhere. Portland and Seattle and San Francisco didn’t just spring up as amazing food cities overnight.

    I know all of you Monday Morning quarterbacks could have done such an amazing job of showing Bourdain and Ruhlman our city in the 3 hours they had to spend here, etc etc. So good luck! Have fun now that you’ve practically BEGGED the Travel Channel to NEVER EVER COME BACK.

    Speaking for myself here. My critiques of the program were not with the dining establishments chosen, or the way they were presented. Nor did I have a problem with Bourdain. Ruhlman should have had a little knowledge that there was a world class Japanese restaurant in the capital city of the state he lives in.

    Totally agree.

    And, if a show that is so unapologetically bold and opinionated really does get worked up enough to make filming decisions based upon a bit negative online chatter, then I’ll have to go with Lisa’s earlier sentiment:
