Now that the most recent Dine Originals Columbus Restaurant Week has come and gone, I wonder what, if anything, will be its lasting impact on the local dining scene. I haven't eyeballed any hard numbers yet, but I certainly did hear a lot of scuttlebutt over the event while it was happening, with momentum seemingly building as the week progressed.

Now that the most recent Dine Originals Columbus Restaurant Week has come and gone, I wonder what, if anything, will be its lasting impact on the local dining scene. I haven't eyeballed any hard numbers yet, but I certainly did hear a lot of scuttlebutt over the event while it was happening, with momentum seemingly building as the week progressed.

Speaking personally, I reacquainted myself with a couple of places I hadn't visited in a while (so many restaurants, so little ...) - the innovative Italianate food at Z Cucina, and Katzinger's Deli, with its high standards of ingredients and preparation.

And as I was leaving a great lunch at DeepWood I saw on the place's door an announcement for a tremendous-looking six-course tasting menu with beverage pairings for the sweet price of $65 (all inclusive) called The Pig Who Went to Market. That hog-out uses various parts of the porker to make some tempting-looking dishes. Will I be there? Oink, oink! Click to deepwoodrestaurant.com for details.
