Restaurant Review: Choripan Argentine Grill

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Choripan Argentine Grill

Choripan Argentine Grill had a quiet opening on the northwest side. As its name suggests, Argentinian fare is on the menu, and it’s not just Argentinian: Choripan is a health-conscious establishment, too. It serves from a menu that is all gluten-free.  Gluten-free Argentinian is quite a distinctive combo. It might be easy for a restaurant to […]

Restaurant Review: Flavor 91 Burger Bistro

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Flavor 91 Burger Bistro

Flavor 91 Burger Bistro set up shop a couple years ago in a mostly unassuming spot. Its address on East Main Street puts the eatery neatly in Whitehall, which is a little off-the-beaten-path when it comes to culinary opportunities. Still, the bistro’s festive exterior signage suggests there’s something special inside its doors.  In spite of its […]

Restaurant Review: Nosh on High

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Nosh on High

Nosh on High set up shop in the former home of MoJoe Lounge just outside the Columbus Commons in September. As the noshing name suggests, the newbie specializes in smaller plate options in an environment that marries a little modern glitz with gracious hospitality.  Deviled Eggs seem to be an official thing in Columbus. Perhaps […]

Since the change, […]

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 […]
