Best Splurge Restaurant: Lindey's

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Vintage but vital, elegant but comfortable, sophisticated but unpretentious, the lovely Lindey's is where movers and shakers congregate and where the rest of Columbus likes to celebrate. That's why Alive voters have chosen this classic German Village eatery with the engaging Parisian bistro feel and super sharp patio as their favorite place to splurge. And they can splurge in style on great steaks (like Tournedos with Bearnaise sauce), sensational seafood (the crab cake's one of the best in town) and indulgent desserts (like the outrageous chocolate and coffee flavored brownie and ice cream ensemble appropriately titled "The Post Mortem").
