101 Beer Kitchen opened their second location in Gahanna last week. There is always a long wait at the Dublin location, and the Gahanna location appears like it could be the same way. Of course there is good reason for the wait! A long beer list, seasonal menu, and tasty appetizers. We had the fried cheese curds, I had the mahi mahi tacos, and he had the shrimp po' boy... all very good!
We also spent some time in the Short North this weekend since the weather was quite nice and we needed to get outside. Our first stop was Forno for some lunch. Of course, as the name suggests ('oven' in Italian), is known for the giant pizza oven... so we needed to try the pizza. But the appetizer we got (because he was starving) was a baked ricotta and peaches spread with bread... almost had a dessert-like sweetness.
We finally went to Laughlin's Bakery after hearing about their croissants amazing likeness to the ones you expect in Paris. I was totally ready to be taken back, if only through my taste buds... and we got the last two almond croissants available for the day! So if you want what you want, it's best to go early for the largest selection of delicious French pastries.
