My husband and I are always on the lookout for fun, new date nights in the city and a couple of weeks ago, we had the opportunity to experience the newest South High Street tenant, Copious / Notes.There are a couple of concepts in this newly renovated space in the Brewery District’s old McGowan Building. First, Copious is the restaurant and bar on the main level featuring farm-to-table upscale comfort food. Upstairs, you’ll find a lovely event space perfect for meetings or receptions. And, downstairs, in the basement, resides an underground club and classy intimate music venue, Notes. We had an absolutely fabulous dinner and I’m glad we had reservations because the place filled up quickly after we arrived. I highly recommend the Crab and Crawfish Cakes and The Ohio Grind, which is their house meatloaf made with brisket, short rib, angus, & lamb, fried green tomato, crushed potatoes ohio applewood smoked bacon & tomato gravy.
Nic raved about his Smoked Ohio Brisket and we also ordered a side of “Craft” Mac’n’Cheese which was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Everything we tasted was exactly what we wanted.
After dinner, we headed downstairs to pick up the energy and just in time for FBA Music Group to hit the stage (for those of you that haven’t seen this Ohio State Alumni group, they’re awesome, especially if you’re a Buckeyes fan)! Notes offers a wide variety of musical performances and you can view their full event schedule here.
Personally, I love that Copious / Notes is a “one-stop” date night spot, especially in the winter months, where a cozy, warm atmosphere is a necessity. Plus, it really doesn’t get much better than dinner and music in my book. Check it out and let me know what you think!
