Last night, Comfort Food Fans descended on COSI to taste bites from 22 local vendors at Best Bites: Comfort Food! We had a blast celebrating our favorite foods with everyone and getting to experience COSI after hours. Many foods were tasted and connections were made!

It was a tough decision, but the votes have been tallied and the top 5 vote-getters were:

  1. Chicky Chicky Waffle with waffle-battered chicken on Belgian waffles and pumpkin fries
  2. Sweet Carrot with mini sweet yeast roll with pulled pork
  3. 101 Beer Kitchen with green chili with pork, tomatillos, yellow rice, cilantro & queso fresco
  4. COSI Events and Hospitality with BBQ cheddar mac and chipotle-maple boneless wing
  5. Palle by Moretti with chicken meatballs over garlic mashed potatoes and marsala gravy

Bites were sampled from: The Hills Market Downtown, Dough Mama, Ambrose & Eve, Blind Lady Tavern, Sabauce Handcrafted Marinade, Piada Italian Street Food, Sweet Carrot, 101 Beer Kitchen, Chicky Chicky Waffle, Due Amici Restaurant, Melt Bar and Grilled, Dirty Frank’s Hotdog Palace, Trillium Kitchen & Patio, Florentine Legacy, The Boathouse Restaurant, Palle by Moretti, Copious, Moretti’s of Arlington, Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Company, and Off the Beaten Path Coffee!

We hope everyone had a great time eating an drinking and you were able to snag a featured drink brought to us by Modelo, Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon, Jacob’s Creek Classic Chardonnay, and Saint Brendan’s Irish Cream.

By participating in Columbus Underground events, you help support what we do! CU events also help support local non-profits. A portion last nights ticket sales will go to The Breathing Association. The Columbus Underground Best Bites event series has been raising money for local charities since launching in August 2014!

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors Shipt and ECDI, without them these events would not be possible! A huge thank you to all our volunteers who helped us make our vision come to a reality and made sure each guest was taken care of.  A big shout out to the staff at COSI who pulled out all the stops to make sure the event went off without a hitch! The biggest of thanks to the CU Staff, who work hard to make sure these events are better every time.

We love hosting these events and appreciate your support by attending. We can’t wait to bring you even bigger and better events in 2018!
