Restaurant Review: Yellow Brick Pizza in Victorian Village

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Yellow Brick Pizza in Victorian Village

Yellow Brick Pizza in Olde Towne has always seemed like such a treasure; the sort of place that’s a one-of-a-kind. That said, there are now two Yellow Bricks. A second Yellow Brick made its debut over in Victorian Village in 2018. And, on reflection and reconsideration, more Yellow Brick is better. It seems selfish to […]

Treat to Try: Ohio Pies

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Ohio Pies

Hand pies have serious potential to be The Next Big Thing. Sure, they’ve been around for decades in fast food restaurants as desserts, but that was before they had the cool moniker: hand pie.

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.

Bread Pudding has always come across like a Cinderella story in the dessert scene. First, it’s not chocolate, so that makes it an automatic underdog. Moreover, traditional recipes for bread pudding call for ingredients that may include leftover or stale bread as its foundation. While odd-sounding, older bread tends to be dryer, so it’s better […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Alqueria Farmhouse Kitchen

Alqueria Farmhouse Kitchen has landed on King Avenue. The curious term, “Alqueria” dates back to a 15th century reference to a small rural community. To that end, Alqueria entered the scene with an agricultural angle that welcomes guests inside with an array of aesthetically pleasing farm implements, installed as art, on the wall near the […]

Restaurant Review: Third & Hollywood

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Third & Hollywood

Grandview’s Third & Hollywood is brought to us by the same folks that built Northstar and Brassica. While the latter beloved counter-service operations have multiplied exponentially on the local scene, Third & Hollywood remains a glamorous loner. Perhaps its existence as a loner is what makes it all the more special. It also holds a spot […]
