Restaurant Review: Legacy Smoke House

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Legacy Smoke House

You might be familiar with Legacy Smokehouse and its food truck operation. Or perhaps you know its wares from its barbecue station at the Short North Food Hall.

Restaurant Review: Brunch at Alchemy in Grandview

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Brunch at Alchemy in Grandview

You know the adage, “Seen one, seen’em all”? It applies to places like Applebee’s and Burger King, but not so much to the new Alchemy location.

It’s debuted its food truck, Caribe Sur, which is an abbreviated eatery at best. You know how it works: full menu, […]

Ohio’s Own: Fromagerie English Cheddar Sourdough Bread

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Ohio’s Own: Fromagerie English Cheddar Sourdough Bread

Restaurant Review: The Rail in Dublin

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: The Rail in Dublin

It’s not clear that Columbus needs another burger bar, even if it’s an Ohio-centric burger bar. We have a lot of burgers. There is no burger void. That said, The Rail, an operation founded in Akron, is still a welcome addition to the burger bar scene. It has a couple things going for it, right […]
