Game Day at Martino's Sports Bar & Grille is no laughing matter?well, unless your team is winning. The Dublin bar takes its sports seriously, broadcasting everything from football to tennis on TVs viewable from every table. The menu of classic pub food similarly doesn't mess around, with massive sandwiches and pizzas crafted from a secret crust recipe. And that's to say nothing of the wide selection of beers on tap, without which a sports bar would simply be a stranger's living room.
When Basil Restaurant opened in 2009, the Columbus Dispatch reported on owner Rhome Ruanphae's inspiration: his mother?s string of successful Thai restaurants?beginning with Thai Village in Chicago?s Wicker Park neighborhood?that she ran with her husband while he was growing up. Rhome borrowed his mother?s culinary mastery for Basil, which teleports taste buds to Thailand with a menu of authentic Southeast Asian cuisine. Chefs gather rice or egg noodles to lay the foundation for many entrees, such as specialty kee mow, a soft or crispy maelstrom of rice noodles with thai basil, tomatoes, and bell peppers. The menu also features a rainbow of curries, soups, salads, and appetizers to keep ravenous diners from eating their napkins.
The seasoned confines of a former antique shop welcome diners to Basil Restaurant, decked out with bare brick and a retro advertisement for ice painted on the back wall. As a glittering chandelier casts light on colorful curries, wine-dark panels of varnished wood gaze at diners from the wall, and exposed lengths of ductwork add a neoindustrial aesthetic without the overkill of steam-powered dessert trays or austere Orwellian maitre d's.
Deep-fried sweet potato, jalape?o aioli, honey-infused wasabi. These aren?t ingredients found on the traditional sushi menu, but the chefs at Red Bar & Sushi somehow incorporate them into their lengthy repertoire of specialty rolls. The team puts their imagination to good use, designing innovative maki such as the UFC roll?crab, eel, jalape?o, and cucumber rolled together and deep-fried in a tempura batter?or the simple, but sophisticated, Samba roll made from tuna, cilantro, and avocado. Red Bar?s chefs offer the classics as well, including fresh servings of salmon, yellowtail, and octopus sashimi, and what they call ?standard? sushi rolls, like the california roll crammed with crab and avocado or the philadelphia roll made with cream cheese.

After dinner, Liquid undergoes a transformation. While diners are finishing up hearty pulled-pork sandwiches and fried pickles, a DJ steps into a booth. A switch is flipped, and multicolored lights shimmer across the low-lit interior as house music thunders from the speakers. The crowd goes wild.
Part restaurant, part bar, and part nightclub, Liquid spans three rooms, from a large dance floor to rows of tables and booths. Servers whisk bar-friendly eats to revelers until 1a.m., from spicy chicken wings to summer salads.
