THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Out On Main Restaurant Review

: In the words of its owners, Out On Main is designed to celebrate the cultural and historical impact of lesbians and gay men on society. It does this partly through its considerable number of displays---in showcases, murals and portraits---of such artifacts and memorabilia as costumes and autographed pictures of famous gay men and women, mostly from the artistic world. Whereas Dick Clark’s American Bandstand has an Elvis shrine, Out On Main has one to Liberace. Still, the restaurant attracts a cross-section of the Columbus community. One of the draws is the fine kitchen, whose menu is itself a cross-section of American cuisine at the dawn of the new millennium. Southern-inspired sweet potato bisque---smooth, nutty, mildly sweet and nicely set off with a tart dab of crème fraîche---leads to New England-derived smoked turkey cakes, fried crisp but not oily and served with a cranberry apple chutney, while beef and lamb dishes compete with true vegan offerings. It’s a lively, happening scene here, marred only by periodic smoke drift from the busy bar into the non-smoking areas.
