    I saw the renderings, only 6 stories? They should be going for at least 12. And why can’t they use better quality materials on the exterior?

    They should at least keep elements of the facade.

    Seriously though, I just spoke with North Market Executive Director Rick Wolfe on the phone, who wanted me to relay that this rumor is 100% untrue.

    As if anyone could seriously think that it was a possibility.

    with the amount of April fools you’re putting out did you really fall for one? :)

    I urge everyone reading this to email/ call Mayor Ginther’s office to voice your concerns…

    Or we could wait to see if the rumor is true

    Well not just any rumor. It’s a first post by a new user with info from an unnamed source. Face it, the North Market is done.

    nailed it

    FYI for my fellow hop heads, Hoof Hearted tapped fresh Konkey Dong at their pub last night. I don’t think they’ve brewed this since last fall? Out of all their beers this and Roller Blabe are my favorite DIPAs

    get yourself some.

    I keep seeing delivery drivers for Brenz pizza in my neighborhood. Anyone had it?

    Sort of related.

    Side note: I love this series Vice does.

    I think to less nerdy people it conjured up “cray cray” an urban expression about being crazy.

    I think that was the intention. Which is why the name was such a groan.

    Don’t forget the gyro shoppe next to City BBQ. That’s a classic, with great greasy fries

    The banh mi at Mi Li Cafe is the best banh mi in Columbus, I think.

    I like the grilled pork banh mi at Buckeye Pho more. But they are very close, and both delicious.

    nobody going to mention Lauren’s favorite hamburger?

    Or is it not considered “forgotten”

    So my wife and I finally made it up to Old Dublin (our old stomping grounds) to check out Menya Ramen. And I’m very glad we did. It’s a small place and at noon on Sunday there was an hour wait but we drove up there wanting noodles, we were going to wait no matter how long. It actually ended up only being about 25 mins.

    We started with the Japanese dumplings (gyoza) and they were amazing. You do have to make your own dipping sauce with the bottles on the table, but that’s a pretty easy mix of soy and chili oil for us. You only get 4 and I could have eaten 20.

    Then came the Ramen. We both got the Black Tonkotsu version because of yelp reviews. It was amazing. And by far the best Ramen I’ve had in Columbus. The broth had all kinds of seasoning going on, that is missing from other spots around town.

    bonus: this is the only place I have been to that has “extra noodles” on the menu. You order these after you finish your first bowl if you are still hungry and then add them right into your remaining broth. (I think the cost was $2.50) It’s very common practice with Ramen shops, but something that has alluded us here in Columbus. Very nice touch.

    If you’re a Ramen fan I can’t recommend this place enough.

    Edit: adding, I did liked the wavy noodles more that came as the “extra noodles” then the straight noodles that were in the initial bowl. I’ve guessing you can specify what noodles you want when you order.

    I’m curious if Jobu will stay open. I walk past it almost daily and only see 1 or 2 people in there at a time.

    I tried going there when they opened and it was chaotic, no one waited on me until I stopped a worker there. Growing pains of just opening, I get it. However I went about a month later and nearly the same thing happened. I also feel somewhat cheated when I’m dropping $14 on a bowl of Ramen on Grandview Ave.

    tl;dr – I happened to get bad service twice for expensive ramen.

    They are doing quite well I’ve been told.

    I guess I was told wrong
