Open only two days in the Wexner Center, Heirloom looks to be the food winner the arts center has long been waiting for. Chef John Skaggs' Northstar roots shone through on the place's menu and in this terrific Big Salad I had for lunch. It was a skillfully assembled (I could tell the intensely green broccoli had been "set") melange that arrived with an excellent tart/sweet dressing and on a chilled plate.

Some tough-to-please Wexner friends of mine seemed surprisingly excited about this place, and told me the egg sandwich, breakfast burrito and Southwestern Caesar salad were "better than Northstar."

Look for a full review once Heirloom cements its menu in a few weeks.
