Columbus cuisine

One of my instructors just told me about his chat with a new student a couple of nights ago. The student arrived in town last week and is here for only a month, visiting relatives.

The instructor asked A. what he liked best about Columbus. A. said, “The food!”

The instructor replied, “But you’re from Venice. You have the finest cuisine in the world there! What do you like so much about the food in Columbus?”

With a smile, A. responded: “Hamburgers!”

I told the instructor to direct A. to Max & Erma’s, so he can at least experience the finest of our ground beef cuisine while he's here.

In the meantime, the instructor has given A. directions to a local pizza place, so he can learn what Americans call pizza.
