    Just look at how well the 6000 Calorie grilled cheese mountain and nachos landfills sell.

    Awww, F! Ain’t no mountain high enough, ain’t no valley low enough

    You would have loved to hate the serving of “nachos” I got in a Dublin restaurant, just a pile of chips with this fake “cheese” that hardened like candle wax when it cooled.

    Not too many people want to buy disgusting garbage poison for lunch.

    Have you looked at the restaurant industry lately? I think you’re way wrong. People love disgusting food for lunch. They like big piles of grease and starch loaded with salt. Just look at how well the 6000 Calorie grilled cheese mountain and nachos landfills sell. Have you seen the industrial rendering plants that pass for an “eggs Benedict” at some places nowadays? that used to be a respectable brunch, with plenty of room for a bloody Mary, or two.

    +1. I think we even have a tater tot food truck in Columbus.

    Well, okay, the first 3 or 4 bites are pretty delicious, I’ll admit but by the time you get 3/4 of the way through it’s pretty disgusting and you’re wondering why on earth you thought you could eat the whole thing! LOL :D

    That whole section of Olentangy River Road is in constant churn. The dead in Union Cemetery bask in their quiet, and just watch.

    Skyline is finishing up soon, but the bigger news is that the neighboring University City Center is scheduled to be demolished at the end of 2017. That strip was originally built in the late 1950s and last renovated in the mid 80s. Hope we don’t lose institutions like Fortune Chinese restaurant in the process though.

    Interesting. I wonder if that means they plan to replace the area with a new strip mall with a Kroger anchor or if they’re looking for other development on the site — that could mean that the project up at Broadway with the Kohls should maybe be taking shape sooner than later.

    Ghost of Columbus Past: there was a movie theatre on the McDonalds site.

    I would be so disappointed if Fortune were to close.

    I clicked on the article by accident, but everything went better than expected.

    IIRC it was where Applebee’s is today.

    Maybe to subdue your disappointment, the head chef from Fortune moved awhile ago to a place that used to be a Chinese buffet and now is a Schezwan place in the shopping center at the corner of Reed and Henderson. I can’t remember the name but it’s a few doors down form TJ MAX

    I think you’re thinking of Hong Kong House. I know they changed their format a couple of years ago to go more towards authentic Sichuan, but I didn’t know they hired Fortune’s chef.

    Honestly, I’ve been to Hong Kong House a few times recently, and I still think Fortune’s putting out better Sichuan dishes. It’s also more convenient for me to get to. :D
