Review: Skillet, Rustic. Urban. Food.

 columbusfoodie Review: Skillet, Rustic. Urban. Food.

Skillet, Rustic. Urban. Food. (hereafter referred to as Skillet) opened up to much fanfare late last year in the Schumacher Place location formerly occupied by Banana Bean Cafe until they moved over to much larger digs on Greenlawn Ave. While the space was definitely too small for the volume of Banana Bean Cafe, it was […]

Restaurant Review: Matt the Miller’s Tavern

 columbusfoodie Restaurant Review: Matt the Miller’s Tavern

Our last few meals out haven’t been planned – we’ve pretty much found ourselves in a suburb running errands when hunger hit, and put ourselves at the mercy of Yelp or Urbanspoon to guide us to nearby sustenance. Fortunately for us, we’ve yet to be let down by a choice we were given. Such is […]

Review: Lost Shepherd Tavern in Powell

 columbusfoodie Review: Lost Shepherd Tavern in Powell

With a significant cut in our income, certain luxuries have had to take a back seat and we’ve had to tighten our belts, both literally and figuratively.

Review: Basi Italia

 columbusfoodie Review: Basi Italia

When I ask those in the know where to get good Italian in Columbus, an answer that inevitably comes up time and time again is Basi Italia. Unbelievably though, although it’s been on my radar for ages, I never got around to eating there until a couple of days ago. Part of that is because […]

Review: Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace

 columbusfoodie Review: Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace

Well, it really would be unfair of me to call this a review, since it’s virtually impossible for me to be impartial. I’m lucky enough to count co-owners (and soon to be spouses!) Liz and Harold among my friends, and because of that, will naturally lean toward wanting to see them succeed in all of […]
