Brown Bag Deli

898 Mohawk St. Columbus, OH 43206 (614) 443-4214
Brown Bag's dining room is small and cluttered with wines, soda fridges, and newspaper racks, and there's a line of people waiting to order running through the middle of it, but the sandwiches at the end of that line make it worth standing on tiny, broken shards of red hot coals in a room cluttered with venomous critters and pulp-mill runoff. Besides, Brown Bag might as well be IN Schiller Park, and they have tables on the sidewalk outside. The freshly prepared sides and salads go great with the individually pressed sandwiches with clever names like Village Addiction ($6.50), which has turkey and cranberry and havarti. Plus, they've got ginger beer and Cel Ray soda.
