Review: Piada Italian Street Food

 columbusfoodie Review: Piada Italian Street Food

Depending on who you speak to, it can be argued that the name “Piada Italian Street Food” is a little misleading; after all, with such a bustling and quickly growing street food scene here in Columbus, there’s an almost unwritten expectation that our street food be, you know – actually served on the street, out […]

Restaurant Review: Vito’s at the Links

 columbusfoodie Restaurant Review: Vito’s at the Links

Let me precede my review by explaining how it came about that I ended up at a restaurant that is part of a country club out in the middle of nowhere. If you remember the Abyssinia Cafe debacle of a few months ago, you’ll recall that the solution WTTE/IncentRev came up with to solve the […]

Review: Skillet, Rustic. Urban. Food.

 columbusfoodie Review: Skillet, Rustic. Urban. Food.

Skillet, Rustic. Urban. Food. (hereafter referred to as Skillet) opened up to much fanfare late last year in the Schumacher Place location formerly occupied by Banana Bean Cafe until they moved over to much larger digs on Greenlawn Ave. While the space was definitely too small for the volume of Banana Bean Cafe, it was […]

Review: Big Fat Greek Kuzina

 columbusfoodie Review: Big Fat Greek Kuzina

This review is actually the result of two visits over the period of a year. The Big Fat Greek Kuzina is a restaurant that we had been visiting on and off for a few years, one that at one time, we absolutely loved and visited regularly. I’d go way out of the way to get […]

Review: Gallo’s Tap Room

 columbusfoodie Review: Gallo’s Tap Room

I admit, for the longest time, I wouldn’t set foot into Gallo’s Tap Room. For all intents and purposes, it looks like a dive bar in the middle of a concrete wasteland nestled deep in suburbia. And maybe at one time, it was exactly that. But little birdies have been whispering in my ear for […]
