The Rossi Bar has taken a formally scary, cramped dive... and turned it into a sleek, if small, Art Deco showplace...  [It] might be the closest thing to a true "bistro" in Columbus, featuring quality food and drink until the wee hours in the morning.

Because the thoroughly fabulous food I began slamming back at the Rossi proved the thrill is most certainly not gone here... My excitement grew from fantastic nightly specials and spread to just-introduced menu items... This translated into meals as good as I've recently had anywhere in town.

Everything was surprisingly tasty and thoughtful. The atmosphere was really cozy, casual and infused with Short North nighttime energy.
