The Six: Brunch

For most people, brunch is just a meal that takes the place of breakfast and lunch, but for me, it’s a hobby. Columbus is an ever growing city, and with that comes new restaurants. When I moved here 5 years ago, I had no idea of all the food options Columbus had to offer, and as I started following many food bloggers, I was intrigued to try everything.

Brunch

For most people, brunch is just a meal that takes the place of breakfast and lunch, but for me, it’s a hobby. Columbus is an ever growing city, and with that comes new restaurants. When I moved here 5 years ago, I had no idea of all the food options Columbus had to offer, and as I started following many food bloggers, I was intrigued to try everything. The first time I had brunch, something clicked. I loved the options that came with combining the two meals, and, who doesn’t love have a mid-morning cocktail? From there, I wanted to be someone to help people dive head first into the wonderful world of brunching!

 #6  Forno

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Forno is pizza and my all-time favorite would have to be their Breakfast Pizza (obviously)! I am not joking when I say that I have dreams until I can get my hands on one of those bad boys. This stone fired pizza is topped with eggs, cheese, Brussels sprouts, and pancetta and is easily the best Breakfast Pizza in Columbus! If pizza isn’t your thing, be sure to try out their Chicken and Waffles or the Nutella Stuffed French Toast for a happy belly. Then, wash it down with a Bloody Mary or some bottomless mimosas!

 #5  Rockmill Tavern

Tucked away in the heart of Brewery District, Rockmill Tavern easily won me over. From the quaint charm on the inside, to the amazing dishes they are serving up in the kitchen, I am positive it will make its way to the top of your brunch list. Not only do they have a great selection of beers, but their Bloody Mary’s hit the spot! I decided to give the Chilaquiles a try and all I can say is, WOW! If it has chorizo on it, I’m in, but this dish was a game changer. Their chicken sandwich, with bacon jam, is also not to be overlooked!

 #4  101 Beer Kitchen

If you are looking for one of the best Bloody Mary’s in town, stop what you are doing and get to 101 Beer Kitchen. Their made from scratch mix and pepper infused vodka will rock your world, but that’s not the only thing 101 has going for them. I have never had a bad experience here and their creative brunch entrees will surely have you coming back for more. From the BELT pizza, to the Crab Cake Skillet, and to, my personal favorite, the Southwest Cornbread & Chorizo Gravy. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

 #3  DK Diner

If there is one thing you should know about me, it is that I am OBSESSED with donuts. Donut Fact: the center of the donut is 100% fat free!

DK Diner is not only one of my favorite places to get a classic diner brunch, but their donuts make my heart skip a beat. Be sure to try my favorite- the Blueberry Cake Donut. Their menu ranges from a plethora of omelets, scrambles, sandwiches, and pancakes. If you want every meal to include a donut, like me, be sure to try their pancakes, which are made with their donut batter! If you are looking for something a little heartier, be sure to check out the Donut Sandy, made with eggs, cheese, and bacon on a glazed DK donut! Need I say more?

 #2  Katalina’s

Putting into words how much I love Katalina’s is hard. This was the first place I ever brunched (ever) and makes my heart oh so happy! Katalina’s is a small restaurant that sits on the corner of Pennsylvania Ave and 3rd Ave, but don’t let their size fool you. They are whipping up some of the best dishes in Columbus and once you try it, you will be counting down the days until you can go back.

They are known for their award-winning Nutella stuffed Pancake Balls, or as I like to call them, little drops of heaven! I’ve easily tried everything on their menu, but some of my other favorites include the Breakfast Tacos, Mazatlan Slow-Roasted Pork & Egg sandwich, and the Breakfast Chick ‘Wich. Be sure to get some Thunder-Kiss coffee to wash everything down to round out your whole experience! Trust me, Katalina’s does not disappoint.

See what “big changes” are coming to The Market Italian Village

Fans of The Market Italian Village certainly aren't enjoying this temporary closure while it undergoes renovations, but the restaurant promises the wait will be worth it.

The neighborhood restaurant recently announced in a release "big changes" coming to the space to create more "experienced-based dining."

"We’ve teamed up with incredible designers, architects, and artists to give our space a beautiful update and we can’t keep our mouths shut about it any longer!" wrote The Market Italian Village on Facebook.

The Market is currently closed and will reopen to guests the weekend after Thanksgiving with two very special additions:

  • Columbus’ FIRST chef's table - A unique experience to get up close and personal with one of the city’s most unique chefs, Tyler Minnis. The reservation-based tasting counter seats four and will face toward the kitchen, giving guests direct access to Chef Tyler throughout the dining experience as he creates a four-course tasting menu. Available for $50-60 per person on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
  • Community Table Seating - Perfect for group dining, this intimate booth is reservations-only for large parties, seating up to 16 guests. Those seated at the community table will order from a pre-set family-style menu, pre-determined by Chef Tyler on a monthly basis.

The post went on to say the restaurant "just scratched the surface" of its announcements.

The Market Italian Village is located at 1022 Summit St. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.

Pancake my eyes off you, sweet cakes, cause no one stacks up to you.

Feast your eyes on the thickest thiccest pancakes that Columbus has to offer. SuperChef Ohio serves up these jumbo stacks of comfort in style, by combining the culinary flavors of savory and sweet—essentially, the best of both worlds.

Stuffed to the brim with scrambled eggs, deliciously sweet candied bacon, and house-made sausage all covered up in warm maple syrup, these cakes are not to be missed.

Picture this: four of the thiccest, fluffiest, and softest pancakes stacked one on top of each other with hot maple syrup cascading down the sides.

Grab that knife in your hand and take that first slice down all four pancakes all at once. Watch as the warmth from the layered cakes is released, and along with it all the combined flavors of sweet and salty bacon and sausage.

Shove a generous helping of the cakes into your mouth and close your eyes. Feel instantly comforted by the penultimate flavors of breakfast all in one bite.

Take a big swig of coffee (or milk, whatever suits you) and prepare for another bite of breakfast dream come true. Fancy yourself a one-stop-shop for all your breakfast needs? SuperChef Ohio has got you covered.

5 tasty merchants announced for North Market Dublin

You now have five more reasons to be excited for Dublin's North Market with its recent announcement of merchants. North Market veterans and newbies alike are coming together for the first phase of committed businesses for the Bridge Park public market.

Momo Ghar, Dough Mama, Market Bar, Coastal Local Seafood, and The Dublin Farmer's Daughter will occupy five of the 19 stalls.

“Like we have done for 143 years at our downtown location, we are successfully curating the best-in-class fresh meats, seafood, bakery, and produce categories for the Bridge Park facility that will provide a unique experience for visitors,” said North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe.

In case you're not hip to the dynamite dumplings, Momo Ghar will be opening a third location inside North Market Bridge Park. As Food & Wine so affectionately wrote, “Once you try this food, you will never have any problem finding your way back here.”

Dough Mama is yet another Central Ohio favorite, serving "stick-to-your-bones" comfort food with a twist, according to the website. Guests can enjoy homemade biscuits, sandwiches, soups, desserts, pastries, and more.

Market Bar will be quenching the adult thirsts of North Market Bridge Park goers with a variety of craft beer and fine wines to go. This concept is owned by Pete Volker and Wayne Lin.

Central Ohio seafood distributor Ian Holmes, owner of Coastal Local Seafood, will bring his expertise to the North Market Bridge Park merchant community. Upon opening their first retail shop at North Market Bridge Park, Coastal Local Seafood will be able to provide the same wonderful seafood ingredients for home chefs and will also serve on-site menu items such as lobster rolls and crab cakes. Dublin residents and guests can look forward to enjoying fresh oysters at the New England-themed raw bar.

The Dublin Farmer's Daughter is a new concept from the owners of Copia Farm, partners Caitlin Bergman and Dan McLeod. This venture will focus on the highest quality ingredients sourced from our farm and other local farms said Bergman in a release.
