The Short Story Brasserie's French-, Cuban-, and American-inspired menu, thoughtfully penned by illustrious executive chef Robert Harrison, earned it a spot in Columbus Monthly as one of 2008's best new restaurants. To begin the meal with decadence befitting Oscar Wilde, cocktail mix masters whip up new and classic aperitifs, muddling fresh mint leaves in mint syrup, lime juice, rum, and club soda to create havana mojitos ($9), and kitchen-forged appetizers such as the rustic flatbread ($10) foreshadow flavor to come. Chef Robert, whose culinary experience includes The Russian Tea Room in New York, pleases diners in the throes of hot and cold comestible cravings with small plates such as the chilly ahi tuna towers ($10) and his steamy signature crab cakes with saffron-mustard aioli ($14). For a larger bite, diners seek out a treasure trove of crispy macaroni and cheese, bedecked with a wealth of lobster and french black truffle ($23). Diners savor a decadent denouement such as the White Cloud, a dreamy mix of espresso vodka, tupelo honey, and milk ($7), and soak in the restaurant's décor, the sheer floor-to-ceiling curtains, rich leather chairs, and granite-topped tables creating an effect elegant enough to shame a yard of satin into spontaneous combustion.
