Pre-Gallery Hop Goodness In The Short North: Hyde Park

Home to over 300 thriving businesses and considered a national model for revitalizing a once-troubled neighborhood, the Short North district of Columbus is widely considered the most teeming and vibrant spot in the city. 14 years ago, 17 steel arches were put up from Goodale to Fifth Avenue on High street, which is the most memorable characteristic of the area. Here you can explore on foot artistic hubs such as Joseph Editions, Lindsay Gallery, The Marcia Evans Gallery, and the Brand-Roberts Gallery, which have all had exhibits gaining national attention this year.

Other events that draw residents curious about the burgeoning scene are the Goodale Park Music Series, the 4th of July Doo Dah Parade, Columbus Pride Festival, and the Columbus Arts Festival. Everyone from students on up to active retirees will love the free “Screen on the Green” series, which happens during July, August, and September. Here you can also sample some of the city's best food trucks, and enjoy the outdoors while re-visiting some of your favorite classics.

The nation's largest volunteer-run festival also takes place right here: ComFest, or Community Festival, provides a voice for the more innovate and thought-provoking side of politics, as well as being a forum for local businesses to exhibit their wares and mantra. Here you'll get to sample some of the best local bands, and experience an atmosphere that is similar to what you can find in some other of the hippest cities in the USA, such as Austin, Seattle, and Denver. The Red and White Boom here attracts over 400,000 people annually, and is one of the best-equipped fireworks displays in the country.

If you know that your plans are going to include walking around on foot in this ultra-cool neighborhood, you are likely going to want to nourish yourself before your excursion, after, or both. Hyde Park is one of those iconic neighborhood spots that caters to those who are discerning diners looking for a big-city adventure. Surfing the web for info quickly clues you in to the fact that nearly every review is 4 or 5 stars, a dead giveaway to the high quality and service you'll find here. This is also one of the coolest patios in the city, a prime people-watching location to enjoy a drink or appetizer with a wonderful view.

Many East Coast transplants will be excited to find out that they can obtain oysters on the half shell here, a staple of any raw bar that makes your late-afternoon that much more awesome. Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, a chilled shellfish platter, or an Ahi Tuna Tower are some other salacious starters that will be perfect for keeping the conversation moving, or relishing a meet-up with a friend you haven't seen in ages. The Surf N' Turf is a 7oz. Filet and 9oz. Lobster tail, a scrumptious seafood plate that will have you instantly daydreaming of Martha's Vineyard and Long Island afternoons.
Bar favorites on the standard side of things include a 9oz. Dry aged cheeseburger, the Bacon Grueyere Dry Aged burger, and pan-sauteed Chicken Parmesan. The Chicken Milanese is a crispy romano-crusted chicken, with a white wine lemon caper sauce, a selection that will surely have you checking your day-planner for the next time you can rush back.

When it comes to steak, this is not an average establishment like many that pop up as you travel further into the midwest. The best in what any culinary aficionado can imagine is offered up with Filet and Petite Filet Mignon, heavy-cut lamb chops, Ribeye and New York Strip Steak, and Porterhouse steak. The specialties here are well-thought-through numbers with classic flair: the Steak Cabernet consists of Filet Mignon, garlic, cracked black pepper, and roasted shallot Cabernet sauce. For something traditional that you may have never encountered, try the Steak Au Poivre: Skillet-seared New York Strip, fresh peppercorns, and Cognac bordelaise sauce.

Fresh-cut boardwalk fries, roasted Brussels sprouts, lobster mashed potatoes, and creamed spinach are some of the options for side orders at Hyde Park: items such as lobster mac n' cheese flirt a bit with the essence of comfort food, while delivering a spin on Ohioan eats that everyone who passes through the front door will appreciate.

Happy Hour in Columbus has always been special: but the owners of Hyde Park have illustriously bumped the bar up a notch: this is truly a venue to be seen in, or enjoy a solitary cocktail in the sanctuary of the Short North.
