Eating and exploring our way through the world

The Original Brio

Posted by Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers on October 31, 2009

Sorry we go through periods of lots of posting and then zero posting! I’ve just made it over the hump of the mid-semester and between work and and school, there’s no time for blogging 😦 But only a few more weeks until I have my masters! 😀

So, back to Columbus… After spending more time with family, we were craving some Italian food for dinner.  Thinking about our options, we decided to head back to Easton because there’s just so much to choose from there!  For those of you that don’t know, Columbus is a test-bed for new restaurants in the U.S.  A lot of chains are started there (or fail there), and according to the Easton website, Brio is one of those restaurants.  Being fans, we knew it was the right choice for dinner that night…

We started out with iced teas and bread.  I love Brio’s bread and that they give you real butter.  Yum!

The Husband’s cousin had lasagne at her house while we were visiting and I knew that it was exactly what I was going to order! I used to think of myself as Garfield for how much I loved lasagne growing up 🙂 This lasagne was HUGE! I made sure to get something to scale it with – in the top left corner is my glass of iced tea.  I liked that they used a classic bolognese sauce in the lasagne (with carrots!) but would have preferred just a tomato sauce on top instead of both a tomato and white sauce.  Of course I had leftovers to take home (and thus take on the plane the next morning)…

Almost anytime a restaurant offers a side of asparagus, the Husband and I like to order it.  This side did not dissapoint!

The Husband went with the steak salad and was happy with his choice.  I shared some of my lasagne with him as well 🙂

If you live near a Brio and haven’t tried it yet, we recommend that you do.  Whether you’re looking for something light or heavy, there are many great options to choose from!
