The Uptown classic has made another "best of" list online.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Friday, Jan. 29, 2016:
Casa Nueva has done it again.
On Wednesday the listicle-heavy website onlyinyourstate.com posted a compilation of “19 Restaraunts You Have to Visit in Ohio Before You Die.” Casa sits at no. 12, sandwiched between a nut shop in Canton and a burger joint in Lima.
The list doesn’t go into great detail about Casa, but does shoehorn an understatement into its description, saying business “picks up on the weekends.”
The closest non-Athens eatery on the list is in Tuscany Guccini Italian Restaurant in Gallipolis, about an hour Southeast of Athens.
