This little eatery/drinkery specializes in taking the old and spicing it up with a dash of the new. It's housed in a positively ancient space, and it's decked out in dark tones and weird old kitsch. But its energy is very modern, thanks in part to the kitchen. The blueprint is classic pub fare, but diners are given some interesting options like subbing eggplant fries for french fries as a side next to your hearty tuna sandwich. The drinks menu is the same story: lots of classics with unique little twists and catchy Columbus-centric names (Route 40 Shorty, anyone? Or maybe a Jungle Jack Hanna). See website for menus, blog, merch and sister-retsaurant info.
