1. Katalina’s

1105 Pennsylvania Ave., Columbus

We got three words for all of you who have yet to discover Columbus’s favorite hidden gem. Nutella. Pancake. Balls.

What a concept.

Other than the gorgeous menu full of locally sourced breakfast and lunch fare, this charming hidden spot has tons of eccentricity. After all, what other place in town can you scribble cat faces on the tables with colorful chalk? (Without getting in trouble.)

We are hoping that this is the last year Katalina’s will take home this prestigious award, as they are opening a second, much larger location in Clintonville next year.

Finally, we won’t have to wait for an open table to get our precious balls of fried sugary goodness.

The End of the Road?

As the economic impacts of COVID-19 continue, we are beginning to see the effects take their toll on Columbus eateries. Here's a list of some of the changes taking place.

The Sycamore+Cosecha Cocina  

Grow Restaurants, the company which owns Harvest Pizza, has listed The Sycamore and Cosecha for sale. While there hasn't been confirmation that the restaurants won’t make a reappearance in some form, Chris Crader stated in Columbus Underground, “It’s a lot of work to re-open after the pandemic and we have a considerable amount of interest in these two properties so it doesn’t make sense to open and then close again so quickly.”

Miller's Ale House

Both Miller’s Ale House locations are closing. The Florida-based company has removed mention of the Ohio locations from their websites.

Flowers and Bread Co.

In a recent article with Columbus CEO, owners Sarah Lagrotteria and Tricia Wheeler announced the closure of the cafe portion of their business. There are plans to expand the flower and bread workshop portion of the business under the new name Flower and Bread Society.

We teamed up with Rémy Cointreau and local bartender, Ben Griest, from Giuseppe’s Ritrovo to bring you an icon of cognac cocktails. Ben's previous videos featured the art of margarita-mixology, and now we are moving on to another tasty cocktail. This timeless, opulent drink is well-balanced and fresh.

With National Cognac Day coming up, we figured it would be great to share, Rémy Martin 1738 presents The Sidecar.
