Generations: Dan Varga

Editor’s note: There is something magical about repeating the same kitchen motions as your mother, your grandmother, your great-grandfather. It could be stirring a darkening roux with the same wooden spoon mother’s loving hands used…

Forged by Fire

First, forget everything you know about barbecue. It’s not because you’re wrong—it’s because barbecue is more than you probably think. It’s not just having the talent and patience to let food cook low and slow….

Culinary Convenience

When the Rolling Stones sang about Mother’s Little Helper back in 1966, the shaggy-haired band was not-so-slyly referencing the popularity of Valium amongst the housewives of the day. Too bad the flustered moms of yesteryear…

The Church on the Hill

In 1976, while America celebrated her 200th birthday, The Refectory (1092 Bethel Rd.) opened its doors. In the four decades between then and now, the restaurant, through an unflinching commitment to consistency and excellence, has…

King of Pork

It’s the perfect summer day. In the middle of a sweaty August, this is the first day the heat has taken a knee and left the clear, brilliant day alone. Little fluffy clouds curly cue…

Plates Without Borders

As Columbus is becoming more and more known beyond its borders for our kaleidoscopic food scene, local eaters are becoming more and more wiling to go outside of their comfort zone. Whether this means a…

Postcard Patios

Condado’s Tacos: Columbus Commons Debuting its second location early in the summer, the downtown Condado’s is part of the Highpoint Building. Tacked on to the north end of the development like a taco-fueled caboose, it…

BFF BBQ

Trying to have a conversation with best friends is like this maniacal mystery tour soaked in nostalgia, filled with private jokes and tangents shooting like stars through the space between us. Aaron Mercier and John…

Pastoral Plates

Fine dining, at least in the contemporary sense, has been a mostly urban endeavor—large cities have the population and the resources necessary for sustaining our favorite white tablecloth establishments. But in the farm-to-table era, one…

Madison Soul Kitchen

Nothing is better than being able leave the city without leaving  your neighborhood. Columbus’s flavor palate is beginning to broaden beyond the myriad of chain restaurants that once dominated the city sidewalks. And if you…

Food Wire

Delivering the Goods Yeah, sit down restaurants are great and all, but wouldn’t it be nice to have that handmade lobster roll from The Walrus delivered right to your office during lunch break? Well, in…

Truckin’

Nothing brings hordes of hungry people downtown like the Columbus Food Truck Festival. From its debut five years ago, the eatery-on-wheels celebration has grown into one of the biggest events of the summer. The convoy…
