In the wake of yesterday’s post, our friends Michelle and Lee politely pointed out that there is a restaurant called Milestone 229 at the end of the Scioto Mile, as well as a series of fountains and misting stations right in front of the restaurant. Both are unfortunately shielded from the rest of the Scioto Mile by some fencing related to ongoing construction.
My bad! I visited the area today to have lunch with good friend and devoted Webner House reader Mike N, and I’m glad I did. Milestone 229 serves some good food and looks to have an extensive drinks menu, although we didn’t sample any of them. It also has a large outdoor eating area as well as a large bend of floor-to-ceiling windows to allow a good look at the fountain area.
There is good reason to encourage viewing of the fountain area, because dozens of happy kids were providing great free entertainment as they ran in and out of the different fountains and soaked themselves to the skin. From the number of kids, Moms, Dads, and caregivers who were there, I’d say the fountain area has already become a go-to destination on a hot summer’s day.
