Re: “The Production Facility and Bakery Behind Aladdin's 40 Restaurants

I've always enjoyed Aladdin's. My only critique is they need to bring back the garlic soup they had for a year or two. It's been about 15 years since they had it, and my wife still talks about how good it was.

Re: “The Production Facility and Bakery Behind Aladdin's 40 Restaurants

Love all the food at Aladdin's Eatery and I usually get the V-Nine soup, the Veggies appetizer with falafal, baba and hummus to share, and the Aladdin's Favorite combo (yes I share some) with a Fatoosh Salad with chicken to take home for later. I always thought that I hated turnips until I unknowingly ate their pickled turnips. Now I can't get enough and the kids love them too.

The article states that the owners would periodically have to go to Detroit, Chicago, etc. to buy supplies when they first opened in 1994. Why not just go over to Aladdin's Bakery which has been around since the early 1970's and I've been going there since the late 70's or early 80's. They supply other retailers and I would think Alladin's Bakery would have loved to build a working relationship and trade ideas. Good business for everyone and it helps build product and cultural awareness.

Re: “Ninja City Settles Into New Gordon Square Home After Four Years in University Circle

I won't go to restaurant that doesn't know it's strength. Soul food, Mexican, Chinese, Vietnamese... What cuisine do you do well? Stick with that.

Re: “Polpetta Takes Meatballs on a Clever and Wholly Satisfying Culinary Journey

so katie, if there was market for their alleged "chef genius", why have they closed? Why do I have to be corporate chooser to object to over-priced concept?

Re: “Ninja City Settles Into New Gordon Square Home After Four Years in University Circle

so what exactly is he trying to offer? soul food, Mexican, Vietnamese, Chinese Restaurants should specialize in their expertise, not do all things for all.

They had to leave University Circle and start over. Their business tanked after those racist messages the owner sent to that Yelp reviewer.

Re: “Ninja City Settles Into New Gordon Square Home After Four Years in University Circle

Been there 4 times and have tried lots of things. Papaya salad was really fresh tasting, but no heat and my least favorite being served in the area...the Pho was really good and the etouffee was really delicious. I'll go back and will bring friends.

Re: “Ninja City Settles Into New Gordon Square Home After Four Years in University Circle

Do you not write a truthful article because the owner of the magazine is an investor or you are worried that Bac will send you racist, unhinged messages? Who cares about his restaurant if he is an awful human?

Re: “Brandon Chrostowski's Putting Finishing Touches on Edwins Butcher Shop

where exactly is the butcher shop located?

Re: “Brandon Chrostowski's Putting Finishing Touches on Edwins Butcher Shop

Right Place, Right Time !
New Simon's Supermarket @ Buckeye Plaza, and small Dave's @ Shaker Square, just don't have competitive prices.

Re: “Mostly Hits at Fat Head's Massive, and Busy, New Brewpub

We were quoted a 3 hour wait time for a table on Saturday afternoon (there was an Ohio State game, they were winning by about 50). They let us hang out at a standing table and order beer and apps, but the service was extremely slow. Don't even bother if you're going to be like that, just tell us to leave.

Re: “Mostly Hits at Fat Head's Massive, and Busy, New Brewpub

It's a nice place but expensive for a suburban brewpub. Many local bars sell the same fat heads beer much cheaper.

Re: “Polpetta Takes Meatballs on a Clever and Wholly Satisfying Culinary Journey

Went because of this glowing review. All in all food was pretty tasty for these low carbers - for whom this is tailor made food.. Creamy parmesan spinach meatball dip Doug noted was alone worth the trip.. Really great. Chicken meatballs (with tzatiki and huge serving of tasty hummus) were very good - and veal/pork meatballs with pomodoro and (low carb) zucchini noodles = fine enough. Kitchen needs to watch temp on meatballs.... Good fruity iced tea. Decent beer choices. $13 cocktail - nearly as much as entrees - was great but perhaps a bit strong in $$$ for a strip mall next to a CVS. Great service from our female server. despite quite a bit of effort however this is still nothing more than a second rate strip mall space that's been 10 other things over the years I'm sure. The bathroom looks nothing like the rest of the restaurant and needs to be redone. The decor is barely passable with all due respect to the place. surroundings do mean something. I liked it but for $80 including tip I wouldn't drive across town from the East side again to do this more than occasionally if that. But it was good and I would recommend it for a visit but for my 80 bucks there are many other choices.

Go back to Olive Garden FEDMAN and contribute to Corporate America instead of Chef Driven cuisine.
