Columbus, Ohio – Paradise for Foodies?

Author: , March 28th, 2014

Ohio mapThink of Columbus, and most likely the words “exciting” or “foodie” do not immediately come to mind. Nowadays, though, this Midwestern city is quietly developing a surprisingly sophisticated foodie scene to rival that of the coastal metropolises – and, this being the Midwest, eating out is far more affordable than on the coasts, and doesn’t require putting your name on a waiting list for a table.
Restaurants

Long-established places such as The Refectory and Rigsby’s Kitchen are solid choices for classic French and Italian cuisine, but tend to be priced on the higher end ($16 to $35 for an entree).

For dining that is more affordable (and arguably has more character) head out to Bethel Road, which is home to a surprising number of hidden Asian restaurants and businesses. The Korean grocery and cafe, Arirang (1526 Bethel Road) serves an excellent Dolsot Bibimbap (a mixed rice, vegetable, and meat dish served in a hot stone bowl), accompanied by traditional banchan, a selection of small dishes that change every day, and hot barley tea for less than $10.

Quick Escapes for Business Travelers in Columbus

Author: , May 20th, 2013

Despite a lengthy winter, Ohio is finally diving headfirst into spring. And with that begins conference season in Columbus. One of America’s most varied and vibrant cities is also one of the most welcoming, which means you shouldn’t spend all of your time tucked within a concourse. In an effort to get you outside the boardroom and into the heart of Cowtown (yes, that is one of it’s nicknames), we’re offering up two restaurants, two attractions, and one bar that you can hit with just a few extra hours between meetings.

EAT: DeepWood has so many menu options, you should honestly plan a second visit. Even vegetarians, vegans, and those in search of gluten-free options are taken care of here. I recommend the fish. It’s an upscale eatery, which makes it perfect for client dinners. That said, it’s also open for lunch on certain days.

Those looking for a serious seafood dinner need look no further than 89 Fish. This place has fresh fare from the sea, flown in daily (keep in mind: the prices reflect that). The atmosphere is classy but casual, and there’s also a larger-than-usual bar area for those who need to take the edge off during happy hour.

Gay Travel: Will Columbus. Ohio Become America’s #1 Gay City?

Author: , June 18th, 2011

Gay Columbus, OhioIn the Best of GayCities: The World According to Gays, Columbus, Ohio was named the Up-and-Coming Gay City of 2011. And as the city’s 30th pride celebration approaches this weekend, we’re wondering–will Columbus soon beat out San Francisco and Minneapolis as America’s gayest city?

And as much as Ohio gets lumped into the Midwest, Columbus demonstrates something of an Eastern sensibility. The secret is that Columbus’s queer Pride comes not from its restaurants, galleries, and clubs but rather from its queer history.
