Restaurant Review: Short North Goody Boy

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Short North Goody Boy

The Short North’s upward spiral has reached the iconic Michael’s Goody Boy. The establishment has long hosted a landmark-quality sign, replete with a giant, luminous, yellow arrow. If not visible from miles away, it’s certainly visible from a decent-sized block. The signage has long held promise of some sort of adventure. In recent years, however, the […]

Restaurant Review: Awadh India Restaurant

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Awadh India Restaurant

Awadh India Restaurant sits at a location that should be great for restaurant ventures. It can be found in a bustling strip mall, nestled right next door to a movie theater: the perfect place to grab a pre-show bite. In spite of the sweet spot, restaurants never seem to last more than a couple of […]

Restaurant Review: A Common Table

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: A Common Table

A Common Table set up a serious sandwich shop smack dab in the center of Clintonville on High Street. The address formerly held a solid salad operation, but these days, bread n’ meat (or beet) combos are on the menu. The new joint hosts a small dine-in area, with walls bedecked with interesting art. At […]

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 […]

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. The place […]

Restaurant Review: Alqueria Farmhouse Kitchen

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 […]
