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 […]

Regardless, the idea of sharing is central to the establishment: it’s mentioned no less than eight times in the restaurant’s online mission statement. That’s good news for people who actually like to share […]

Unusual Eats: Cuban Pizza

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Unusual Eats: Cuban Pizza

Taco Pizza and Hawaiian Pizza have been around for decades. In Columbus, it’s also pretty easy to score a Reuben Pizza or a Philly Cheese Steak Pizza. There’s even a Tandoori Pizza option out there. They all seem like harmonious ideas for a pie: mostly meat, cheese, maybe some veggies. All this makes it almost […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Dining Disappointments: 2018 Update

Last January’s Diary of Disappointment highlighted unpleasant eating events in an otherwise excellent year of gorging. This past year had its share of disappointments too. We’ll talk about that. And we’ll talk about some good moments too, because, you know, it’d be a shame to leave with a bad taste in your mouth. Let’s begin […]
