RE: Hungry in Columbus Ohio
Will he have a car? Here are some good places. Nancy's Home Cooking on North High Street. It's a little hole in the wall restaurant with incredible food, especially the chicken and noodles on Mondays and Thursdays. Very reasonable. TAT Italian family restaurant on the corner of East Livingston and James Rd. They've been in business since the 20's and have a great early bird special menu (4-6pm). It's $7.95 and includes hot bread, soup, salad, entree, side dish and dessert. The Top Steak house on East Main has been around since the 50's or so. Or the Clarmont downtown. Excellent steaks at steak house prices. Also the pies at Henry's in West Jefferson are worth a short road trip (30 minutes or so) if he wants to hit the road. For a touch of nostalgia, the original Wendy's restaurant still serves hamburgers downtown on Broad Street. For more ideas, he might want to check out the food section of the local paper, "The Colubus Dispatch".
