Breakfast news: miscellaneous happenings around Columbus

January 8, 2010

A few of the breakfast happenings around Columbus:

1. The Beechwold Diner opened January 2, 2010. I first heard about it a couple months ago from This Week News. I plan to visit tomorrow with CMH Gourmand; look for a review soon!

2. According to this recent article from The Lantern, Nancy’s Home Cooking is close to opening. They’re waiting on some final approvals from the city of Columbus, and then hope to be up and running again soon. As I read this article, I was stunned by how this neighborhood diner was almost single-handedly saved by the efforts of a generous community. Truly amazing.

3. And according to this discussion on Columbus Underground, Michael’s Goody-Boy in Short North is temporarily closed, as the main cook has landed himself in prison. I had never heard any of his back story, but given what I know, it’s better he’s off the streets. If only someone would buy the place and convert it into a 24-hour diner!
