My Taste of the Columbus Hospitality Group

26 Apr

My dream superpower would be to eat anything I wanted and maintain the same weight. I’m definitely one of those people that lives to eat. Its moments where I get invited to a Taste of Columbus Hospitality Group restaurants that I wish I actually had that superpower. When I first walked into Mistral, I was taken aback at the chic simplicity this restaurant embodied.  My immediate focal point was a sitting area with a large wall clock.  I had never seen décor positioned in that way and I absolutely loved it.

Waiting at the bar for the private room to be ready, there was a “painting-curtain” separating the bar from the other sitting area. The images were picturesque, detailing scenes from nature. What better way to frame it than with actual foliage.

Upon entering the main event, I was again impressed with the fantastic presentation that was pervasive throughout the room. The room was lit up with beautiful flowers, a great contrast to the rainy cold outside.

was only able to stay for the drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Sadly, I had another commitment that required me to leave before the desserts. I was able to try Spring Thyme: handmade vodka, rhubarb, thyme, lime and soda. It was quite refreshing.

To its right was a table set up by L’Andana, renown for its Tuscan cuisine. They were grilling swordfish, something I had never tasted before. (Surprisingly!) It was quite the delicacy.

My final stop and favorite item of the night was from Teatro: hand crafted fig & prosciutto sausage with spicy tomato brodo and shishito pepper. It was so good, I went back for not one but two more! This one really got me thinking, and I am definitely looking to visit Teatro and see what its full menu entails in the near future!

If you could choose any of the places from which I got to taste, which would it be???
