Former Milestone 229 colleagues have solved the paradox of how to offer fine dining at affordable prices: Nosh on High.
With the transformation of the former Cup O Joe space in the Lazarus Building and the Friends and Family preview behind them, there’s only one thing left for the co-owners, chef, and general manager, respectively, to do ... wait with bated breath.
It is, after all, exciting to give birth to a restaurant concept that’s been months, if not years, in the making. It started with a simple idea that came from a shared love of travel – enjoying small, sharable plates of amazing food. Hence, the name Nosh, which means “to snack, to share.”
In addition to offering weekday lunch and dinner service, and Saturday night dinner, Nosh on High, has those who need a private event space covered, thanks to a completely private dining room and a speakeasy space with room for 30.
Although waiting until opening day to post their chef-driven menus online (www.noshonhigh.com), the team’s been teasing would-be diners with awe-inspiring selections like a peach-spinach-walnut-Parmesan salad, duck with maple blueberry sauce, and tuna with smoked salt, pickled ginger, soy, and sticky rice. Play-on-word dishes like Which Came First, a hot-sauce inspired deviled egg with a delicate crisp of fried chicken (get it?), and classics with a twist like Tomato Tartare, are sure to surprise and delight. And don’t forget dessert! Their classic Texas sheet cake and S’mores Pie will certainly make Nosh your new go-to for a sweet indulgence. With a smattering of vegetarian and gluten free options, there’s plenty of delectable dishes to share with diverse palates.
As for the rest of us, we’re waiting in anticipation, too. Because there’s not much better than a culinary hot spot that brings together two favorites in the heart of Downtown Columbus: the great flavors of the Midwest and the great conversation that comes from being in the good company of ourselves and others.
