Restaurant Review: The Lox Bagel Shop

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: The Lox Bagel Shop

Even in the midst of recent restaurant closures, no one would ever call the Short North “underserved.” On the ritzier end, it has pretty much everything. Honestly, it probably has two of everything. And when it comes to Cameron Mitchell restaurants, it’s got like…five? But breakfast has never really been the Short North’s game. Sure, there […]

Short Order: Empanadas & More

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Short Order: Empanadas & More

“Fusion” and “authentic” are pretty much culinary opposites, yet both are celebrated in the local food scene. Authentic eats are lauded for their fidelity to niche regional or historical preparations. Fusion, on the other hand, is celebrated for its creativity and unconventional sensibilities. If you can’t be one, you can probably be the other. Although […]

Packard, Porn & Ohio Architecture

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Packard, Porn & Ohio Architecture

The Midwest might be well-known for its wide-open spaces, agricultural production and comfort cooking, but outside of Frank Lloyd Wright, its architectural contributions are often overlooked.  That’s a shame, because that means missing out on some good structures, and the stories that go with them.  Belt Publishing’s new book, Midwest Architecture Journeys, explores the region’s […]

Restaurant Review: Egg-O-Holic

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Egg-O-Holic

The first Ohio spawn of a Chicago-area culinary project has taken root on Bridge Street up in Dublin. It’s a fast-casual establishment: order at the counter, take a number, choose a table. Fun, colorful artwork on the wall merges egg and Bollywood themes together […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: IncrediPuffs

The time has come for Columbus to have its very own cheese puffs. Tortilla chips, potato chips, pork rinds: we’ve already got lots of that stuff.  And now we have cheese puffs, too. Or rather, IncrediPuffs. And they come in cheese flavor, as well as a whole bunch of other flavors.  IncrediPuffs are brought to us by […]

Restaurant Review: SŌW Plated

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: SŌW Plated

There’s a healthy bit of philosophy that comes along with a visit to SŌW Plated. And that’s healthy in more than one sense of the word. First, SŌW has a stated commitment to generally health-oriented, “nutrient-rich” offerings. There’s more to it than that, though. There are actually three parts (or “pillars”) to its approach: sustainable, organic and […]

Treat to Try: Turkish Delight at Citadel Cafe

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Turkish Delight at Citadel Cafe

If you read classics as a kiddo, you’re probably familiar with at least the opener of CS Lewis’ Narnia series. The first book is where you learned about Turkish Delight: a treat so delicious that it inspires one character to rat-out his own siblings to the evil empire.  Every once in a while, you see Turkish […]
