Oddfellows Liquor Bar in the Short North launched into the scene and created more vegan community buzz for bar food options. Cara Woodhouse has made great strides in developing a surprisingly comprehensive vegan brunch food selection in her “Classy Brunch Party” buffet for an affordable $8 that runs 10am to 3pm on both Saturday and Sunday. You can find uncommon vegan options that include home fried potatoes, pancakes, French toast, biscuits and gravy, and if you need a gluten-free accommodation, there is a quinoa and kale green salad and often a soup or chowder.
Oddfellows is also home for another Woodhouse vegan catering venture she shares with her mother and sister. The “Woodhouse Vegan Pop-up” dinners, which occur at the bar from 7-10pm on Monday evenings feature more comfort food staples such as mac and cheese and chili with corn chips. It is an exciting time in the Columbus food scene with increasing “socially just” dining options. As people continue to discover that eating vegan is not deprivation, but delicious, I hope we will soon see even more comprehensive vegan options available, affordable and accessible everywhere, everyday for everyone.
