Cool Site on Columbus Restaurant History

Posted by cmh gourmand on November 6, 2008

Here is an interesting local website on Columbus restaurant history.

Columbus Restaurant History

Columbus really does have a lot of culinary history to offer: White Caste headquarters since the 1920’s, the birthplace of Wendy’s in 1969, the location of the original BW-3, home to the original Max and Erma’s, Charley’s Steakery, The (defunct) Cooker, Damons Ribs and so many other places. Another food history place of note, Krema Nut Company – the oldest continuous maker of peanut butter in the country.

And for a more comprehensive picture of our American culinary past – the folks from Cornell put a nice site together.
