Restaurant Review: Vaqueiros

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Vaqueiros

Vaqueiros isn’t particularly new. It’s been around long enough to generate its own following. In fact, a regular patron sent in a compelling recommendation to visit the spot up off of Polaris Parkway. If the spelling of Vaqueiros moniker looks a little familiar, that’s because its related to the well-established local Vaquero chain. It’s not […]

Restaurant Review: Pat and Gracie’s Downtown Edition

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Pat and Gracie’s Downtown Edition

Pat and Gracie’s was originally named for colorful characters in the history of Graceland, the shopping center that houses its first location. But now Pat and Gracie have gone wandering, setting up another restaurant Downtown in the digs formerly known as Lomonico’s. The new spot is every bit as appropriate for the operation as Graceland […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Fox in the Snow – German Village

Fox in the Snow Cafe, once a pioneering coffeehouse and bakery on North Fourth Street, opened the doors to its second location in a well-travelled foodie zone in German Village.

Earning national attention and accolades from pretty much everywhere, a whole new local appreciation for Tibetan and Nepali foods has emerged in its wake. To meet the epic demand, a new joint, Everest Cuisine, has entered the marketplace in Worthington. It’s […]

Restaurant Review: Fuzzy’s Taco Shop

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Fuzzy’s Taco Shop

Replacing the (evidently not) immortal Japanese Steak House across from the convention center is a Tex Mex place that causes natives of the Lone Star State to wax rhapsodic. Unlike the old chop shop, the new joint is probably not somewhere you’re going to celebrate a festive birthday, but the newbie is colorful enough, and […]

Restaurant Review: BLunch

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: BLunch

The conversation about Brunch and Drunch and now BLunch has already occurred a million times. Having tried the first one in a variety of places and the second one a few months ago, hitting BLunch was fairly inevitable. There’s a bit of a trick to timing a visit at the newbie. While brunches generally, and […]
