One of my new favorite places to go for dinner/drinks after work is Details Minibar & Lounge . Located in the Short North Arts District , Details serves unique drinks and tapas style dishes created by owner/operator Chef Richard Rosendale, team Captain of the 2008 U.S. Culinary Olympic team.

Details gets its name from their approach. They strive to make everything you experience there a work of art. I can honestly tell you, having been there several times now, from color, texture, flavor and presentation standpoints, mission accomplished!

Last week, I took my wife there for dinner and drinks. Upon entering we were promptly greeted by sommelier Chris Dillman who offered us a beverage menu. I went for my new favorite cocktail, the Pimm's Cup - Pimm's #1 and Fever Tree Bitter Lemon Soda garnished with cucumber and lemon. My wife went with Charles Smith Wines Riesling Kung-Fu Girls from Washington state. Because we were there for happy hour, we received $1 off our cocktails (½ price drafts are available as well).

Our reason for dining that Tuesday was that my favorite menu item was on special - the Ahi tuna tartar tacos. Each Tuesday, they're only three for $5. We also had the white truffle popcorn, which was amazing. Then, after sharing a deep-dish cast iron pizza and cheese plate, it was time for dessert. We went with the s'mores, made from whipped chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker streusel. It was so good, had we been at home, we would have licked the bowl clean.

In addition to happy hour drink specials and Taco Tuesday, I would highly recommend trying the Detailed Experience if you want an intimate and unique experience with one of the Details chefs. I did it a few months ago and thought it was one of the best dining experiences I've had in Columbus.
