Where to Sit: Though it fills up quickly, try snagging a spot on the patio, which Columbus Alive described as "a casually elegant and breezily fabulous food- and drink-fueled playground" and Columbus magazine simply called "breathtaking."
When to Go: Lindey's really gets hopping during its weekend brunch—held on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. During this time, regulars clamor for indulgent, yet affordable dishes, such as french toast stuffed with banana and cream cheese and crab cakes with eggs.

Permeated with casual elegance, The Wine Gallery festoons its eclectic menu with classic bistro fare in the form of flavorful salads, soups, sandwiches, and specialties. Let the nibbling commence with starters of chips, dips, spreads, breads, and more, such as the cheese plate, a tour de fromage sidekicked by gourmet crackers and olives ($9), or its smokehouse doppelgänger ($9). Like a whole-wheat aqueduct, the mushroom-spinach pizza siphons a steady stream of silver-dollar mushrooms, mozzarella, feta, and provolone ($8). Chew through an English hedge maze of panko-coated eggplant caprese salad, with mozzarella, tomato, and basil ($5 half, $9 full), then celebrate victory with the succulent, spice-rubbed prime-rib sandwich ($8) or Italian basil-chicken sandwich ($8).
