Allow me to get my super food geek on here in this post. I’m still happily reeling from the two days I spent this week at a conference called Roots: Connect and United Through Food. The Chef's Garden was filled with James Beard and Michelin Star winners, expounding their expertise. Here are five things I learned.
Hofbrauhaus Columbus is still in the final stages of construction, but the team behind the Munich-transplanted brewpub plans to officially open the doors for lunch on Tuesday, Oct. 28—one week behind schedule.
Lobster, foie gras, caviar and fresh truffle can be some of the most expensive ingredients chefs use. As of today, Columbus diners can get all of the above—and then some—all on one plate as Flip Side at Easton reveals a $350 burger.
“Is this breakfast or dessert?” I had the feeling I wasn’t the first person to ask this question when staring down a plate of The Angry Baker’s Vegan Pumpkin French Toast ($8.75)—a seasonal favorite at the perennially packed Olde Towne East cafe.
Starting Saturday, fans of Latin-inspired cafe, Katalina’s, can get a taste of pancake balls and the pork and egg sandwich in the Short North. Katalina’s is partnering with High Street dive bar Oddfellows Liquor Bar to offering an ongoing pop-up menu that will be available Thursday through Sunday to start.
Wolf’s Ridge Brewing’s food and beer have earned accolades over their first year, and the praise is well-placed. The weekend brunch is an ideal cross-section of their abilities: beautifully plated dishes, creative cocktails and a prominent focus on their beer, both in the glass and on the plate.
Prohibition Gastro Lounge is finally open in Powell, transforming the former decor shop into a two-story bar and restaurant with a focus on craft cocktails. The latter is what I stopped by to try this week and from what I’ve seen so far, this is one area where this spot excels.
Not even beer is immune to season creep, it seems, as pumpkin ales hit store shelves as early as July this year. To beat the saturation, we consulted Mike Troy, owner of Crafted Drafts in Gahanna, in highlighting this season’s best bets.
Brews from Georgia’s Sweetwater Brewing Co. hit local shelves and tap lines starting today. Area bars and beer stores are celebrating Sweetwater's foray up north with special events throughout the week.
