Next time you’re in Dublin, make sure to stop and smell the rosé at the city’s newest wine bar. Coast Wine House recently opened at 75 S High St., offering a contemporary wine bar + bottle shop inspired by a blend of the spirit of coastal California and traditional wine country cafés, markets, and bodegas, according to the website.

Coast assures they don’t take themselves too seriously “in contrast to the conventional wine world,” describes the website.

“The mood is decidedly relaxed. The wine is pleasantly chilled,” Coast says.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

The wine bar is run by Dustin Snow, who his wife, Molly, believes brings a “warm and relaxed” feel to Coast.

“A visit to our house is by no means fancy, but Dustin makes it special, because he genuinely wants to make you feel at home,” she wrote on Instagram. “And since Coast is an extension of our home you will have this same warm and relaxed experience.”

Hi, Coast family! I’m Molly Snow. Better half of the guy behind Coast, Dustin (cheesing above), and fellow wine lover. He hates the spotlight but deserves an introduction. So, for those of you who haven’t met him yet, here’s what you can expect. . Ask anyone about Dustin and nine times out of ten their response is centered around his innate approach to hospitality. Dustin isn’t one to JUST have you over. Wine (something unique but not obscure) is chilled, fresh cut flowers (from the backyard) are sitting on the counter and a charcuterie board (worthy of the pages of Bon Appetit) is waiting to be devoured. And during those unwelcome cooler months you can guarantee there’s a fire roaring on our back patio. He smiles and jumps right up when he hears a knock on the door, quiets our crazy barking dog, Duke, and greets you with a huge hug and of course, a glass of wine. . Most of his time these days is spent on Coast or chasing after our 18 month old son, Archer. But occasionally he gets some time to himself. He’ll kick back with a glass of Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County in one hand and his phone in the other, laughing to himself as he flips through Instagram (yes, he is addicted to social media). . A visit to our house is by no means fancy, but Dustin makes it special, because he genuinely wants to make you feel at home. And since Coast is an extension of our home you will have this same warm and relaxed experience. Without a rambunctious toddler or a playful pup, but I am certain that you will feel all the feels.

Coast is open Wednesday and Thursday from 12pm- 9pm, Friday and Saturday from 12pm- 10pm, and closed Sunday through Tuesday. To learn more visit coastwinehouse.com.

"We are truly grateful to our community of customers, friends, family and staff who have supported us in our pursuit to bring a unique food experience to this vibrant city as Columbus’ first and only kolache bakery," wrote Kolache Republic on Facebook.

Other than deciding it was "time to hang up our oven mitts and start a new chapter," the Czech pastry shop did not provide a reason for the closure.

If you're planning on showing a lot of love for Kolache Republic before it closes, Kolache recommends calling ahead for any orders of a dozen or more.

Kolache Republic is located at 730 S High St.

Restaurant Week: High Bank’s $20 deluxe comfort food menu doesn’t disappoint

If you've sequestered High Bank into strictly a booze category, you're missing out on one of the most well-executed comfort food menus in Columbus, especially during Restaurant Week.

Weighing in at a mere $20 per person, High Bank's three-course menu is so tantalizing, you'll struggle to pick just one dish from each. Believe me, I certainly did.

Course 1: Choice of Garden Salad, Nacho Fries, Loaded Baked Potato, Five Ways Spaghetti

With great power (being tasked with choosing just one starter) comes great responsibility (making sure I pick the best). Luckily, there really is no wrong move.

Ever had Taco Bell's Nacho Fries? High Bank's are better. Crispy, battered fries smothered in melty queso, seasoned beef, refried beans, and a generous heap of sour cream make for an elevated, indulgent, heavyweight starter. The portion is definitely big enough to share, but I wouldn't blame you if you didn't.

Course 2: Choice of High Bank Bacon Cheeseburger, Queso-Rito, Spicy Chicken Sandwich, High Bank Bowl

Since stick-to-your-bones food is officially back in season, you have to get down to High Bank for their fried chicken menu items. The chicken is battered using an incredibly light and crunchy buttermilk, fried, then dusted with cayenne that leaves a warm glow on your palate—not too hot, not too mild.

Restaurant Week features two chicken entrees: the Spicy Chicken Sandwich and the High Bank Bowl.

The sandwich is an instant comfort food classic, but the High Bank Bowl is like the designer version of KFC's Famous Bowl. The mashed potatoes are perfectly salted and buttered, the sweet corn adds just the right amount of sweetness and pop, and the cheese and gravy culminate into a savory sauce. Colonel Sanders would be impressed.

Course 3: Choice of Mint Chocolate Sandwich, Snickerdoodle Sandwich, Oreo Sandwich

At this point, I was almost too full to function, but I had to press on. To absolutely no one's surprise, High Bank's third course did not disappoint.

The Snickerdoodle Sandwich came with two perfectly under-baked snickerdoodle cookies bookending a lump of hard-dip butter pecan ice cream. Drizzles of white chocolate over top sent this dessert into the winner's circle.

I can't remember the last time I felt so repleted, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat, and so should you. At just $20 a head, this is a deal you can't afford to miss.
