The Columbus Athenaeum's Pearl Market lunch menu offers healthy, flavorful options that include assorted salads, wraps and fresh focaccia bread. Their nutritious side of tortilla chips and red or green salsa adds spice to the normal takeaway lunches.
The Athenaeum, located at 32 N. 4th Street, has spent the past 16 years hosting and catering meetings, conferences and weddings. Now, they want to expand their catering business and catch the attention of downtown professionals.
Executive chef Lynn Kirch said," Pearl Market is a great opportunity to get our name out there. Even if customers don't buy, they see us and know that we're catering."
The Market served as a good test market for past vendor and now brick and mortar restaurant, Si Senor, which is now located on Lynn Street. Columbus Athenaeum's culinary team makes all the dressings, sauces, breads and salads in house, and Kirch offers a tasty sample to anyone walking past.
Stop by the Market and pick up lunch from the Athenaeum any Tuesday or Friday this summer. The Greek wrap and its delicious garlic sauce is a wonderful choice for a first-timer.
