Restaurant Review: Aroma

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Aroma

This summer, Aroma made its debut on Lynn Street in the spot that used to be Si Señor(!). Before that, the space was home to Deli in the Alley. Unlike its predecessors, Aroma is neither deli-oriented nor south-of-the-border, both familiar and popular genres for the Downtown crowd. And while “Aroma” is a moniker that could be […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Everything Loaf from Buckeye Bread Company

Buckeye Bread Company established itself in 2021 to fill a gap in the local bread scene. According to its business plan, Columbus lacked sufficient services to provide fancy breads to local restaurants. And really, we’re not just talking “fancy,” but signature, custom loaves; wholesale artisan bakery wares.  It’s a model the owner, Jeff Benkel, successfully developed […]
