    Here’s a new, good little Bar & Grill to check out on the East side. It’s across from the Top on Main (a few blocks west of James, where Bexley Bistro used to be). One of the owner’s used to manage the Round Bar, and they remodeled the space themselves. He said the bar was made from the bowling alley salvaged from Main Lanes. It’s got a great neighborhood feel and much better than average bar food. The beer selection is limited, no draft, but they did have Rogue Dead Guy & some imports. The fish & chips ($8) and Reuben ($6) were both good. Soups looked good and they just added wings now that they have a 2nd fryer. The type of neighborhood spot you hope makes it, check it out next time you are out East.

    I’m a big fan of Old 40. The drinks are as strong as they used to be at the ill-fated Round Bar. I haven’t been there to eat, the kitchen closes at 10 PM, but I’ll go out of my to have a drink there. I hope that it sticks around for a while.

    I had the buffalo chicken sandwich last week. It was good. There’s a nice patio too.

    It’s good to hear there’s a nice bar-restaurant in Eastmoor, which unfortunately has the unenviable reputation as being the other crappy side of E Main. But really, the neighborhood is not so bad overall and this is a nice addition to the handful of existing destinations[/url]. It’s a bit far, but it’s definitely bikeable…

    Good to know about, thanks for sharing. As for sharing new places… make sure you try Skillet, new(ish) in German Village on Whittier. “Urban rustic”… cool yummy menu.

    I think Skillet is pretty firmly established on the scene now…annnnnd if you can’t make it to GV or want a Skillet fix in the evening, they have a mobile truck at O’Reilley’s auto parts in Cville on Thursdays. :)

    When I first saw the name of the thread, I thought that it was like in Galloway, West Jeff, Reynoldsburg, or somewhere far from the central city.

    It’s the old Bexley Bistro across from the Top, Don’t know what it was before that.

    Old 40 has some really good onion rings. I can’t place the seasoning they use in the breading & they won’t tell me what it is (cayenne and something more). I know the foodies here like a challenge so if someone can identify what it is I would like to know.

    Is this the same as “Stop 40”? Also, does anyone want to check out Silent Woman with me?
