Restaurant Review: Awadh India Restaurant

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Awadh India Restaurant

Awadh India Restaurant sits at a location that should be great for restaurant ventures. It can be found in a bustling strip mall, nestled right next door to a movie theater: the perfect place to grab a pre-show bite. In spite of the sweet spot, restaurants never seem to last more than a couple of […]

Ohio’s Own: Reinecker’s Bakery

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Reinecker’s Bakery

Babka is a type of treat that takes on a lot of forms and interpretations. You can score a Seinfeld-famous chocolate babka at mainstream joints like Trader Joe’s, and walk away with a loaf of bread that hosts infinite ribbons of chocolate filling within its folds. That’s all nice, but Reinecker’s makes a different sort […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Dragon Donuts

It took a minute to get out to Dragon Donuts. Perhaps that’s understandable. Located in Grove City, the shop requires a short haul through the scenic 71-S road construction. But then again, it’s spring in Columbus, so congested road construction is inescapable. But in this case, it’s worth it. As the name indicates, donuts are involved. […]

Their bread labels say the operation is worker-owned, though they’re a little short on the rest of the marketing schtick for those who want the […]

Restaurant Review: Milestone 229

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Milestone 229

Milestone 229 continues to be a perennial favorite gathering place Downtown. Voters placed it on last year’s top restaurant list at number 10. With its windowed walls that permit expansive natural lighting (and occasional sunshine) it’s easy to love, especially as the weather warms and the Scioto Mile itself begins to buzz with activity. The place […]

Ohio’s Own: Kim Chi Pork Rinds

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Kim Chi Pork Rinds

Between lo-carb diets and fancified treatments on menus in local restaurants, pork rinds are experiencing a bona fide heyday. Once a weird, niche, vaguely creepy snack, fried pig skin is now widely accepted as a cool munching option. And so it was only a matter of time before the snack food industry started launching more […]
