Restaurant Review: REBoL

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: REBoL

REBoL is a glitzy-looking project in a glitzy-looking location. Found at Easton II (aka Bridge Park in Dublin), the new spot has all the slick marketing of a mega chain. And yet, according to the internet, it has a more modest origin story. The first REBoL made its debut in Cleveland. Columbus is home to only the […]

Restaurant Review: Jonys Sushi

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Jonys Sushi

You don’t necessarily think of German Village as being a Columbus hub for good sushi. Good German food: that seems like a decent bet. Coffee shops and sweet treats: yep. And the neighborhood hosts plenty of traditional dining from downscale Thurman’s to upscale Lindey’s.  And now, German Village has sushi too. This fall, it welcomed […]

Restaurant Review: El Tequileño Mexican Kitchen + Taqueria

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: El Tequileño Mexican Kitchen + Taqueria

Much like the Morse Road installation of Saraga International Grocery, the newish Cleveland Avenue Saraga also serves as a small business incubator. Within both grocery stores is a mini food-court that features independent operations serving up a variety of treats. In the case of the newbie, in addition to ice cream and a bakery, you’ll […]

Restaurant Review: The Old Spot

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: The Old Spot

The Old Spot in Grandview isn’t actually old yet. It’s a newbie to the neighborhood. The Old Spot introduced itself as a project that merges the sensibilities of two well-loved, well-established local culinary influences: Butcher & Grocer and the La Tavola team. The former is a nearby butcher (as the name suggests) with a distinct commitment […]

Restaurant Review: The Lox Bagel Shop

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: The Lox Bagel Shop

Even in the midst of recent restaurant closures, no one would ever call the Short North “underserved.” On the ritzier end, it has pretty much everything. Honestly, it probably has two of everything. And when it comes to Cameron Mitchell restaurants, it’s got like…five? But breakfast has never really been the Short North’s game. Sure, there […]

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: SŌW Plated

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: SŌW Plated

There’s a healthy bit of philosophy that comes along with a visit to SŌW Plated. And that’s healthy in more than one sense of the word. First, SŌW has a stated commitment to generally health-oriented, “nutrient-rich” offerings. There’s more to it than that, though. There are actually three parts (or “pillars”) to its approach: sustainable, organic and […]
