I love Columbus!! Aside from the sometimes kooky weather, we couldn’t ask for more when it comes to keeping busy in the capital city! And of course, it’s our unique, local eateries that really set us apart from other cities!
This weekend, my girlfriend Dana was in from out of town; the perfect opportunity for both of us to explore some new things! If you haven’t visited these places yet, put them on your “list!” I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
And remember – everything in moderation! It’s great to take a friend so that you can share these amazing selections.
On Friday we visited Cuco’s in Upper Arlington – I LOVE this place! BEST fish tacos! Delish!
Then on Saturday we tried 101 Beer Kitchen in Dublin – FANTASTIC (and a new favorite)!! I’m almost embarrassed to tell you all we had…freshly fried cheese curds, deviled eggs with prosciutto, a burger big enough for two and a Cuban sandwich with fresh pulled pork that melted in your mouth! Dessert? Oh yeah! Chocolate Cherry Bread Pudding and a Salted Caramel Pot De Crème; all enjoyed with some of the yummiest craft beers! 101 Beer Kitchen never disappoints and their beverage selection is amazing!
Finally, on Sunday we enjoyed Skillet in German Village – This little gem is amazing! It’s the first time I’ve been to Skillet, and will be going back for dinner!! We had the most amazing brunch! I love Skillet because everything is farm-to-table fresh! Chorizo biscuits and gravy, an egg scramble with butternut squash and kale, grits with pulled pork, an egg sandwich with pork chop and super cinnamon rolls!! Expect a wait that is more than worth it!
Then for dinner, we capped off the weekend at Cap City Diner in Grandview – always a favorite and an added bonus to end the weekend with my friend; buttermilk fried chicken, white cheddar broccoli soup, and a vegetable plate that is the best in the city! Top that off with 24k Carrot Cake and my weekend was complete.
Now…the Trisha Project will be pulling extra duty this week to work off such an amazing (and special) weekend! Well worth it! Viva La Columbus!
