Restaurant Week Review: The Old Mohawk
July 24, 2012
This is the second in a series of restaurant posts in honor of Restaurant Week Columbus - come back ever day through July 23 for more great food info!
Looking for a classic spot for a hearty meal? Look no further than The Old Mohawk, aptly on Mohawk Street in German Village. Serving up filling grub and slinging beers since 1933, The Old Mohawk is big on both ambiance and flavor. Long known for its turtle soup (a tomato-y broth that does actually include turtle!) and its Mother Mohawk (a happy marriage between a chicken salad sandwich and rueben sandwich) the Mohawk has an up-to-date menus that pairs those classics with some dishes with more international flair. There's also a full bar, with a great selection of Ohio beers on tap.
The Old Mohawk's Restaurant Week menu is $15 per person, and includes options ranging from southwest penne pasta studded with shrimp and peppers and a sirloin smothered in blue cheese and onions to desserts such as the pumpkin roll and the Buckeye millionaire - a peanut butter-chocolate mousse served in a pecan crust.
