A friend recently invited me to join her after church, in trying out a new dining spot in the Short North of Columbus. We went to a small spot called Double Comfort. It is a cozy, cool joint with a serious mission: Great Food, Happy Customers, Happy Employees, Helping Others!
Double Comfort is a social enterprise with a focus on southern comfort foods and amazing fried chicken. More importantly, Double Comfort gives proceeds to designated local food pantries, so when you enjoy a plate, so does another!
It is simple and smart in its down-to-earth decor, with touches of reclaimed wood and creatively up cycled galvanized steel and light fixtures. A bar is wedged perfectly into the space and the friendly bartender welcomes you warmly from the door.
While I am gluten free, I had an amazing salad with roasted butternut squash, while my friend enjoyed fried chicken and waffles. Yum!
It reminded me of my Great Grandmother from the UK, who had a wickedly wry sense of humor and apparently used to say, "Ahh hunger and thirst after righteousness" (when it should of course be hunger and thirst for righteousness)... I can tell you, we walked out stuffed, happy and perhaps a little righteous!
Check it out, they have very accommodating hours to meet everyone's needs from the late diner wanting drinks to the post church crowds, and when you enjoy, so does another! Something to seriously crow about!
