The Scoop: Five things to know in Columbus dining news

Beth Stallings, Columbus Crave

Crave is excited to introduce our new weekly column, The Scoop. Every week, our editors will dish on five things we're eating, drinking and gabbing about in Columbus food news. Here's the latest:

1. Today, Scotland brewer BrewDog confirmed yesterday's rumors-the craft brewery is indeed crossing the pond and most likely landing in Columbus. "We considered so many potential locations in the US but eventually it was how much we loved the people of Columbus and how welcome they made us feel on our visits that put Columbus firmly at the top of our list," reads a blog posted by BrewDog. The statement cites a few final details to hammer out before the move to 42 acres for a 100,000-square-foot facility in Central Ohio is official.

2. Roosevelt Coffeehouse, our favorite new coffee shop with a cause got a national nod this week. In a Bon Appetit blog on this summer's new coffee trend-espresso or cold brew coffee poured over tonic water and ice-the Discovery District shop was mentioned for its Black Tonic. We sampled Roosevelt's new fizzy coffee drink. Here's what we thought.

3. There are still a few tickets left for chef Bill Glover's food meets music dinner at The Commissary (1400 Dublin Road) on Thursday (June 11) night. FM: Food + Music is an eight-course dinner from the Gallerie chef that spans from modernist takes on Ohio dishes, such as sous vide Berkshire pork belly, to reimagined dishes from his past, including Brazilian Pacu fish ribs, a favorite from shuttered Sage American Bistro. While Glover entertains the palate, Columbus DJ and artist Adam Smith will entertain your ears with a live music track coinciding with each course. Dinner starts at 7 p.m. and the cost is $75 per person. Tickets are available here.

If you can't make the dinner, follow us on Instagram tomorrow as Glover takes over the @ColumbusCrave account for an inside look at how the meal comes together.

4. Festival season is in full swing. If you want to find us this weekend, we'll be at Grandview's annual Digfest. The free celebration of local booze includes dozens of local and regional beer, wine, liquor, food and craft stands. We've got the rundown here.

5. We're mourning the loss of one of our favorite Cambodian/Thai spots in town. Inconspicuously located across from the Hollywood casino, Siem Reap has quietly closed. It was one of our go-to spots for non-Americanized Asian fare, from feast-worthy hot pot to addicting stuffed chicken wings.
