Ohio’s Own: Happy Potato Chip Day

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Happy Potato Chip Day

Thursday, March 14, is National Potato Chip Day.  It’s worth pointing out that March 14 is also National Pie (Pi = 3.14) Day. The pie angle makes sense. It leaves 364 other days available to celebrate potato chips, but for whatever reason, the deciders have set March 14 for the salty snack too. So, here we […]

Restaurant Review: Do2 Sabores

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Do2 Sabores

After a respectable stint in the food truck world, Do2 Sabores opened up its very own spot on Huntley Road near the old Continent. The spot is bright, with a few theme accents and plenty of natural light. There are some noteworthy things about Do2 Sabores, things that make it more than just another place that […]

Short Order: Portia’s Lasagna

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Short Order: Portia’s Lasagna

Lasagna is a perennial popular favorite in the entree scene. Meat sauce, cheese, what’s not to love? With this in mind, Portia’s has been offering a version in which all those lovable items are absent. There’s no dairy, there’s no meat. It’s part of the ideology that governs Portia’s Cafe, a joint with a long dedication […]

Hello Sycamore, it’s been a while. A few years, since 2013, to be precise. The last official business meeting was for brunch, and that’s been tragically long discontinued, without any regard for the disappointment associated with the loss of some fine, fine chilaquiles and french toast. Fine. There is some consolation. The Sycamore is certainly […]

Ohio’s Own: Pita Krunch

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Pita Krunch

We’re still not quite done with the whole Ohio chips discussion. The selection of offerings in the Ohio snack scene is robust — robust enough to host, in addition to lots of potato and corn chips, pita chips too. That means we’ve got some international flair to investigate. Of course, international and local are two […]

Restaurant Review: East Coast Pizzeria

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: East Coast Pizzeria

East Coast Pizzeria sounds like the name of a big pizza chain. It probably is the name of a pizza chain, somewhere. But it’s also the name of a locally owned pizza joint just north of Morse Road. Although the digs are modern, it’s got an old-school, familiar feel. There’s a big list of options that […]

Restaurant Review: Taste Bay

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Taste Bay

Taste Bay made its debut on Henderson Road in November. Although the name may not necessarily indicate a particular dining theme, the joint’s social media touts international and Caribbean offerings. The angle adds a distinctly different option to a strip mall that houses a boxing club, a hair salon, and a sports bar. The inside […]
