Restaurant Review: District North

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: District North

District North set up shop in the Atlas Building, one of Downtown’s more notable structures, last fall. The Atlas isn’t notable because of hype or glitz, it’s notable because it’s historic. The building was designed in 1905 by Frank Packard, a renown local architect. Somehow, the structure has survived a history that includes foreclosure, code […]

Restaurant Review: Egg-O-Holic

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

Egg-O-Holic is more than just an egg joint. It’s an Indian egg joint. 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 […]

Restaurant Review: Cravings Cafe

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Cravings Cafe

Cravings Cafe is back. It’s back in a new spot, all by itself on a long stretch of Front Street. A couple years ago, it had a successful run as a carryout cafe in Italian Village. Its new address has more space for seating than the operation had in its old digs. The seats, though, […]

For better or for worse, most local eaters associate Brazilian food with all-you-can eat steakhouses.

It’s not for everyone, that’s for sure. So step back […]

After 78 years of operation, Rife’s closed its doors in 2014 and a year later, the hallowed grounds evolved into a restaurant called Sweet Carrot. The address is a permanent spot for a project that started as a food […]

Restaurant Review: Stack City Burger Bar

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Stack City Burger Bar

The 670 Cap in the Short North is looking more and more like the Hyde Park Cap. The locale has been good for the organization. Hyde Park has installed its signature steak house, a small plate stop (Eleven), a fish joint (Black Point), and now there’s one more addition: Stack City Burger Bar. The super […]

Review: Piada Italian Street Food

 columbusfoodie Review: Piada Italian Street Food

Depending on who you speak to, it can be argued that the name “Piada Italian Street Food” is a little misleading; after all, with such a bustling and quickly growing street food scene here in Columbus, there’s an almost unwritten expectation that our street food be, you know – actually served on the street, out […]
