Columbus Ohio restaurants : circa 1951
I found list from 1951 Columbus restaurant directory from ColumbusChefs.com looking for any info on Arlane Restaurant shown in Don O'Brien's photo of Lane Avenue Shopping Center.
Columbus Ohio restaurants
It looks like the Arlane Restaurant was between a flower shop and a photographers studio in the photograph. The 1951 list identifies the place as "Arlane Tea Room" and gives the address as "1689 W. Lane av (UA)" It is one of very few suburban locations on the list from a 1951 directory.
I wrote this post in early May and forgot about it until I got an email from a couple who used to live in Worthington, looking for the name of an Italian place on High Street, south of Worthington in the 1970s. I offered Vila Nova but that is not it. They are looking for an Italian restaurant that was on the west side of the street, south of Vila Nova. Anyone remember?
I recommended the site where I had found this restaurant, Arlane on a list from the 1950s
