It was the first Monday of the semester.
I had been extra motivated and I went to the RPAC at 7 am and was ready to start the day off right. Before heading to the library, I decided to stop by a new eating place I had heard a little bit about.
It was a restaurant nestled in the Wexner Center for the Arts. When I went to the basement of the building, I saw a minimalist, chic nook with metallic tables and white chairs.
A menu, written in neat chalk, was mounted on the wall. This sophisticated place stood in stark contrast to the typical, super-sized college culture.
I tried one of their glazed croissants and a cappuccino.
The pastry was not heavy at all. In fact, it was one of the best things I had eaten in a while.
The cappuccino stood miles above many other coffee drinks I had had previously.
Now, you might wonder, what is this place? A restaurant in an art museum on a college campus?
The eatery is called Heirloom. It features local ingredients and food made from scratch. In fact, they grow some of their own vegetables.
The only drawback is they take BuckID cash, not blocks. The moment they start accepting blocks (if they do), I will be there every hour of every day (or at least I’ll try!).
So, I encourage you to try Heirloom. It’ll expand your taste buds and expose you to a food culture beyond buffalo wings and pizza.
Plus, they support local, which really benefits everyone!
