Let me tell you about a fabulous brunch experience: though it doesn’t actually open officially until Tuesday, The Whitney House in Worthington was open for trial runs this weekend. With an expansive menu of creative twists on traditional brunch cuisine, this place is definitely worth checking out. I had the challah french toast, which came with apple butter and maple syrup, as well as bacon. My husband had the brunch farrotto–a savory risotto style farro with asparagus and drizzled pomegranate glaze. Both were exceptional. Their Whitney Mimosa, a champagne and pair nectar infused cocktail, was off the charts.
The restaurant is lit by minimalist Edison lights and the decor is straight out of Brooklyn. The kitchen is open for anyone who would like to gander at their food being made and the chef, Max, and proprietor, Ian, were both out asking how their dishes were and asking for suggestions on future courses.
Overall, one of the best brunches, for an incredibly reasonable price, I’ve had–in Columbus or otherwise. I’d highly suggest checking them out after they open December 9th.
