Restaurant Review: Mr. Hummus Grill

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Mr. Hummus Grill

Mr. Hummus Grill has a moniker that suggests a super-casual operation. The serving team leans toward branded t-shirts, which bolsters that impression. That said, the interior of Mr. Hummus’ digs on Bethel road is kind of breathtaking. Debuting this spring, Mr. Hummus set up shop at an address that used to be a shish-kebab place. […]

Big Gamble in MadLab’s 2018 Theatre Roulette

Richard Sanford Richard Sanford Big Gamble in MadLab’s 2018 Theatre Roulette

True to its namesake, MadLab’s annual multi-night short play showcase Theatre Roulette is always a risky proposition. Sometimes the audience witnesses a breathtaking miniature we’d never get to see anywhere else. Some nights we hope to break even on the time we invested and don’t quite get there.

The dining space now boasts super cool, long booths you can enter from either side. The booths […]

Restaurant Review: Short North Food Hall

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Short North Food Hall

The Short North Food Hall is like a little microcosm of the Short North itself. Constantly buzzing with a perfect sampling of people perched at its tables, the crowd features bros, man-buns, beards, ladies in crop-tops, stiletto heels, families (traditional and non), and empty nesters with expensive spectacles. Like the mall ways it’s modeled after, […]
