3 blocks from the Courthouse. Part music venue, part comedy club, and part dining destination, The Loft is a perfect marriage of the Columbus college scene and its riverfront tourist attraction. Much like the headliners filling the upstairs nightly, the lunch menu does not disappoint. Great starters like the seared ahi tuna, thai shrimp tacos and one-of-a-kind shrimp corn dogs can be a meal in itself. One of the salad highlights is The Tanya, featuring dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, red peppers and white cheddar, topped with a housemade balsamic and a dollop of cous cous (a very nice touch). Regulars rave about the half-pound burgers and an interesting choice is the French Burger topped with fried brie, smoked ham and a raspberry pepper jelly. There are plenty of vegetarian options here, including a veggie burger (try it with wild mushrooms and swiss), portobello wrap and a multitude of sides like white cheddar grits, red pepper cous cous, baby spinach and sweet potato fries. For a restaurant of this caliber, the service is not only great but surprisingly quick so there is no fear of not being able to get back to court on time.
