    Friends were talking about the BBF Hamburgers on High St. and the riot what accompanied them, wondered if anyone else had any BBF thoughts/memories

    Add Ecole Kenwood to the list. This was my elementary school in the 60s.

    Edited to add, here’s the project website:

    What Happened to Columbus? I am visiting after leaving for 25 years and I’m really saddened by what’s happened. I left Columbus shortly after I graduated from OSU. I have returned for the first time since and I cannot believe how things look now! When I left Columbus, I left kicking and screaming because I loved it here. Columbus was young and vibrant. I really thought it was going to have a terrific future. What happened? I grew up in Worthington and Worthington looks pretty good. Some change, but overall still a nice place. Head south on High Street and it’s pretty miserable. Go East on 161 and it becomes urban blight. 161 was the site of awesome restaurants:
    Tamarack
    Victoria Station
    Wine Celler
    Oyster Dock
    Even Chi Chi’s at the time was great
    The Continent? Wow! I didn’t recognize where I was.
    Other than OSU and the short north, it looks like Columbus is imploding with chain stores and restaurants on the beltway, but hollowing out on the inside. Columbus had some of the most unique restaurants and they’re all gone. Besides the list above:
    Kahiki
    Jai-Lai
    Waterworks
    Engine House
    Mine Shaft
    Rocky’s

    Besides 161, the area around Northland mall is horrid, the state fairgrounds area looks terrible.
    Wow, I drove around to many of these sites because of the awesome memories and they’re gone! And there is nothing here that replaces them. Columbus just seems to have the same old chain restaurants you find in any suburban area, nothing unique here anymore. I was really saddened by what I saw. I an truly shocked. I used to brag to people how cool Columbus was and how youthful, always looking forward. But…..
    I’m still a Buckeye, but am glad I moved to the East Coast.

    You should spend 10 minutes reading the site before talking about how awesome the food scene was here 25 years ago vs. now.

    p.s. Chi Chi’s was never great.

    Chi Chi’s was never great.

    With the exception of perhaps the Jai-Lai NONE of the restaurants he remembers as great would last a year in Columbus now.
