Ayana Wilson Ayana Wilson Grill & Grilled Now Open Downtown

The former location of Burger, Dogs, and Fries at 20 N. High Street didn’t sit empty for long when the brand suddenly closed earlier this year. Fatih Gunal, owner of the several Cafe Istanbul restaurants around town, snatched the opportunity to open Grill & Grilled, a make-your-own, Mediterranean fast food joint, similar to his Pera […]


Restaurant Review: Hae-Paul’s

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Hae-Paul’s

There are all sorts of reasons to like Hae-Paul’s downtown. First, it’s got bona fide royal lineage in the local dining scene: the restaurant is the start-up project from Chef Paul Yow, a chef fresh off a fifteen year tenure at Barcelona. Second, Hae-Paul’s is a family run business; it’s owned and operated by Yow […]

The restaurant is comfortable in its own footprint: the big, raw brick wall is filled with old photos, and the wood floor is filled with chairs and tables. The staff seems comfortable too. There’s no schtick or song and dance, […]

This Saturday, February 16th, food truck hub Dinin’ Hall will host the inaugural event at their Franklinton location. A benefit for the nonprofit […]


Review: Barrio Tapas

 Morgan Kelley Review: Barrio Tapas

Barrio opened three years ago in a former Downtown Wendy’s location, but unlike many fast-food conversion projects, you wouldn’t recognize it. During dinner, this two-story restaurant is dimly lit and swanky-yet-casual with its wood-crate-meets-rusty-steel decor. Barrio is equally known as a place to grab a drink for happy hour (I enjoyed half a pitcher of white […]
