Restaurant Review: & Juice Co. Grab & Go

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: & Juice Co. Grab & Go

Refrigerated grab-and-go coolers are not normally the places in Columbus to find the tasty fare. More often, the sections are stocked with make-do food options, valued more for speed than for quality. That normal state of affairs is worth pointing out, as & Juice Co. has been busy shaking up the grab-and-go scene by stocking […]

Restaurant Review: Ritzy’s

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Ritzy’s

The return of Ritzy’s has introduced the most epically anticipated restaurant opening in recent memory. The hype surrounding Melt’s debut is the only thing that even comes close. Of course, the two establishment couldn’t be more different. Melt is a massive mega-chain with a commitment to insanely large sandwiches worshiped by a committed fan club. […]

In fact, it’s dug in deep, as the business recently completed a renovation project that updated its interior. In recent weeks, the city has launched exterior renovations projects, […]

Restaurant Review: Oshio

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Oshio

For a strip mall joint, the Fifth Avenue address that hosts Oshio has enjoyed a robust culinary history. It was once a Hawaiian joint, and then a GoCupz Korean place. Now it’s a sushi stop. The basic bones of the place are similar to its former incarnations, but with clean lines and a neutral color […]

Restaurant Review: Laguna Mexican Street Food

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Laguna Mexican Street Food

It’s been a couple years since the last visit to Raspados Y Nieves La Laguna for its frozen confections. At the time, it was located on the West Side, at the back of a laundromat. Things change. Lots of things change: these days the project’s social media page redirects diners to the other side of […]

Restaurant Review: Burgerim (Downtown)

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Burgerim (Downtown)

So, Burgerim. More burgers, right? But, they’re different. Legitimately different. The chain hit town with two new locations this summer, one Downtown and one on the East Side. It serves bitty burgers, bigger than sliders, more like something kiddie meal-sized. That means Burgerim isn’t a contender in the oversaturated biggie burger marketplace, whereby super-thick beef […]
