My husband and I are originally from the Mid West, and have lived in Los Angeles for the last 10 years. We will be in the Columbus area for a long weekend in two weeks, visiting a sick relative and various extended family members. We'll be staying in Dublin (I'm not sure about renting a car yet.)
My question pertains to the extended family--the oldest is 40, the youngest is 22. I'd love a couple of recommendations of bars, or bar/restaurants, or restaurants where we could go and catch up. (I'm picturing doing this at night, if said sick relative poops out relatively early.)
I'd like a comfortable atmosphere, someplace convivial, but not too loud that we can't hear one another, and would be able to tolerate some lingering over conversation. If there's a good bar/food menu, all the better!
Locations, items to order, any general words of advice are greatly appreciated!
