The sound of jazz music rising above the din of a steady stream of customers enjoying brunch on an early Saturday afternoon in Dublin’s Bridge Park was one indication business as usual at some local restaurants might be returning to normal.
Several venues in Bridge Park have been resuming live music as the city emerges from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic that scuttled virtually every kind of social activity nationwide last year.
“I feel like I’m on vacation,” said René Delane of Westerville, who with her husband, Rob, was enjoying brunch and the sounds of the Bobby Floyd Trio on June 12 at Hen Quarter, 6628 Riverside Drive in Bridge Park.
The couple enjoyed the farmers market on the streets of Bridge Park before having brunch at Hen Quarter, a restaurant that Delane said she chose for its Southern-style fare after learning about it on social media.
“It made for a perfect day,” she said.
Also enjoying the day and there specifically to see the Bobby Floyd Trio were Ben King, who resides in Columbus’ Brewery District, and Cathy Quinn.
