Splendid Holiday

Columbus has many annual food events. This week saw a fantastic new event that I hope will become an annual tradition. Splendid Holiday was held in the North Market’s Dispatch kitchen and was masterminded by Jeni’s Ice Creams.  As well as being a benefit for local non-profit Local Matters it was an opportunity to try some festive local food and drinks. Splendid Holiday was a wonderful reminder of how many artisan producers and new food entrepreneurs we have in Columbus. There was a wealth of sweet treats including Omega Bakery (Bouche de Noel), Three Babes and a Baker (cupcakes), Pattycake […]

Cocktails for Nida's

November 1st, 2008    •  by Bethia    •   2 Comments »

Nida, owner of Nida’s sushi in the North Market is opening a new Thai restaurant in the Short North called Nida’s Thai on High. It will be a couple of doors south of Zen Cha, so couldn’t be more convenient for me. The opening is imminent, so some helpers were enlisted to help to create cocktails for the new drinks menu. How can one refuse an offer like that? The restaurant features a full bar, albeit with a bizarre liquor license that allows spirits and beer but nothing under 40 proof.
