This is a great fact to remember: For every $100 you spend in a locally owned business, $68 remains in that community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures verses $43 spent in a national chain. Here are a few of my favorite spots to dine.
Shaw’s: (Lancaster) Go for the pork chop! (remodeling seating may be limited)
The Top: (Bexley) Ask for your salad a lettuce bowl with blue cheese crumbles (favorite steak house)
Alana’s: In the University District, her menu is all beautiful and divine (fun date spot)
Dirty Franks: (downtown) Favorite Hot dog joint (fun small casual place)
Tip Top: (Downtown) Love the Mac and Cheese (our hip and trendy down town friends got me hooked)
Tony’s: (Brewery District) I love their Sea Food Fettuccine
Columbus Brewing Company: (Brewery district) Great for drinks
There are so many I enjoy and more I cannot wait to try. At the top of my list to try are:
Old Mohawk Restauant (German Village) I love their fish and chips and the french onion soup
Skillet (German Village) Rustic Urban Food Great spot for brunch
If you have suggestions for any of the Dine Originals restaurants let me know!
Try to remember those who own local businesses, produce your food and work in Ohio’s number one industry, not just on special days like today, but each and every day.
