Uncover the Trendy Flavors of Italy on the New Speck Italian Eatery in Downtown Columbus

I really feel like Columbus owes Delaware an apology. First one of many area’s finest eating places, Veritas, begins in Delaware earlier than migrating to downtown Columbus. That frees up the area for Speck Italian Eatery to return alongside… and now that’s moved to Columbus as properly. Can we assume that we’d ultimately get Cove, A Seafood Joint as properly?

Columbus has been the beneficiary of some nice eating places began by chef and proprietor Josh Dalton. Dalton owns the wonderful 1808 American Bistro up in Delaware, in addition to the area simply down Winter Avenue, the place Veritas, Speck, and now Cove have incubated.

In partnership with Edwards Communities, Dalton has been in a position to transfer the eating places to downtown Columbus round Homosexual and Excessive streets, which have been welcome additions to the town’s core. Speck is the most recent entry, a superb trendy Italian spot with nice cocktails and wine record.

Speck’s area on Excessive Avenue is properly appointed, with a entrance bar and open kitchen.

It’s at present open for each lunch and dinner.

The cocktail menu is created by Genevieve Johnson, who most not too long ago wowed Columbus audiences together with her work at Rooh within the Brief North.

Speck is at present taking reservations for dinner solely; lunch is obtainable first come, first serve.

We are able to’t consider a single misstep from our complete dinner. Listed below are the highlights!

Starters included the house-made focaccia and the namesake speck and burrata. For many who don’t know, speck is a flippantly cured ham. Pleasant on crusty bread with comfortable house-made burrata.

The confit wings have been a stand-out from the starters menu. Crispy, splendidly seasoned, tender meat.

As you may think about, pasta takes heart stage, comprising a majority of the primary dishes on the menu.

The scallops on risotto with pancetta and chili.

Pillowy comfortable gnudi within the cacio e pepe.

Lovely king crab over linguini.

And the wealthy pomodoro over bucatini with ricotta and herbs.

Don’t move up the dessert menu, with hits just like the bitter tiramisu with mascarpone gelato and whipped espresso.

Or the pistachio cannolo with home ricotta and pistachio gelato.

We’re actually sorry that downtown Delaware misplaced Speck, however we’re selfishly completely happy to have it in Columbus. It’s a standout eatery with nice service and a targeted and expertly executed menu that ought to rapidly show to be a favourite.

Speck is at present open Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5-10 p.m.
