The second of the six-member Columbus Food League, the Surly Girl Saloon was my meeting place for a recent lunch with a former work colleague. It provided the venue for good food, good company, and good conversation.
After catching up on what's been going on with each of us, I began to study the menu. The Columbus Food League restaurants are known for their comfort food and the Surly Girl has a nice selection from which to choose.
I ended up ordering the Chorizo & Portobello Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup ($9.00).
The sandwich was constructed with chorizo sausage, chili-marinated portobello mushrooms, and a six-cheese blend on wheat bread. Sprinkled over the homemade tomato soup were some tasty scallions and a handful of Frito's completed the plate.
The Surly Girl is located in the hip Short North section of Columbus, just north of downtown. The Short North is a destination neighborhood and the Surly Girl is a destination comfort food stop and watering hole.
