Cupid's Arrow At Copious Restaurant

A restaurant? Art gallery? Jazz club? Copious is more. It’s an overwhelming satisfying experience. 

Climb the stairs at Copious Restaurant, filled with paintings and art surrounded from wall to wall. On the second floor is a customized loft area perfect for any event. Underground reels you into your comfort zone with live jazz music: Somehow, the restaurant manages to balance each venue successfully.

Copious offers many reasons for visiting, aside from the comfort food – and then those happy hour appetizers appear. The crab dip was smoothed to perfection, topped with toaster brioche and the artisan flatbread was amazing. Then there are the fried oysters, which was very new to my palette, but exceeded my expectations. Reflecting on my last post, my night at Copious was very daring and I enjoyed every minute of it.

The dexterous Curtis (Hillard) – the Executive Chef, where many of the menu ingredients are thought-out with exquisite flavored textures– works the dishes to a clean, crafty, and sharp presentation. He even shared with us the, ah, “what’s that?” of the high quality ingredients that balance out different tastes.

Dinner arrived as we (Columbus Ohio Living blogger, Morgan Lee) shifted from the bar lounge to the table: Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Smoked Ohio Brisket, Bistro Steak, and Fried Oysters were all included. Like every other dish, the presentations were artistic and polished like a creator who designed their masterpiece.

However, that was just the beginning of our night! Entering into Notes (Underground level) Hoo Doo Soul Band helped us let loose and let go with their high energy performances of R&B and Latin rhythm ensembles. After a long week of work, I recommend getting your groove on (especially for this upcoming Valentine’s holiday) while dancing in style.

As a self-declared foodie myself, the holistic experience helped revamp my perspective on what a true dining experience should uphold. Copious is among the most beautiful renovations in Columbus. Take advantage of their Valentine’s Menu Special, I’m quite certain you’ll walk in hungry leaving comfortable and inspired.
