Three-course dinner for my favorite time of the year - Restaurant Week! Two weeks a year, dozens of Columbus restaurants offer special three-course price-fix menus with a variety of options ranging in price from $15-$40.

My friends Molly & Alison & I have been participating in Restaurant Week for the last six years. This year, we decided on Lindey’s in German Village, which offered a $30 menu. My order:

1st course: Scallop Wellington
2nd course: Duck Enchilladas
3rd course: White Chocolate Almond Brownie

Next Restaurant Week is in July!


Have you ever had a sushi burrito? I hadn’t so when I saw an Instagram ad about a new restaurant that just opened in my neighborhood, I had to give it a try! Pokeworks just opened this month in Grandview on 5th Avenue. I love sushi, but it can be expensive, but Pokeworks was super affordable, and also had friendly staff and quick service. Definitely recommend if you’re looking to try something new!


January 31 was “3 Free Bagel Day” at Bruegger’s Bagels!
