Table Scraps 3/30/10

  • My friend Perry has recently started a blog for folks that like to enjoy a good red wine, but don't have cowboy astronaut money to spend on it. Check out Reds For the Rest of Us, and add it to your blog roll if you know what's good for you.
  • A new Asian joint is opening at the fancy outdoor mall, The Greene, in August. It's called Choe's Asian Gourmet, and will be operated by the same guy that runs Edamame Sushi & Grill at a similar location on Columbus's Easton Town Center. Alex, I'll take "Places I can't afford to dine" for $500.
  • In much more important news, Dayton's delicious Submarine House is opening a new location in Beavercreek soon, sporting the same bar & grill concept that their Vandalia & Troy locations currently use. Since the owners are out of town, I spoke with Jason (in charge of franchise opportunities) from Sub House today about the new digs. He says they plan to open in late June and the menu will remain the same, but with a full bar and plenty of giant TVs. I have a call in to the owners, and will be posting more scoop on this next week (since DDN doesn't seem interested in the story). In the meantime, call up your local Sub House and get yourself a cheese steak or a Big T!
  • Had another amazing lunch today at Figlio in Town & Country: Chicken Marsala with penne, another great salad, and of course, their amazing wood fired pizza. They had three varieties out for us to sample, and I tried one with chicken and caramelized onions, and another with pesto, tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Figlio's owner, Peter Danis, was kind enough to thank me for the glowing review I'd posted from my first visit to his restaurant and chit-chat with me. He is probably one of the most genuinely kind restauranteurs I've ever met.
  • I've been very busy and have a lot of updating to do, so keep your eyes open for a brief review of Schlotzky's Deli and a recipe for a Chicken, Sage Sausage and wild rice casserole.
