Best Place to Get a Meat and Three Sides

Mighty Good: Meat n’ Three

Some seriously Southern food has been served up near Findlay Market since Mighty Good: Meat n’ Three on Elm Street opened its doors in October. The restaurant focuses on “simple, delicious, fresh, Southern food at an approachable price.” And as the “Meat n’ Three” name implies, customers can select one meat and three sides (family-style and vegetarian options are also available) for their meal. There are daily specials and, of course, sweet tea — including one infused with bourbon. Customers can also pick from a series of rotating seasonal cocktails. But Mighty Good is more than a restaurant; it’s also a social enterprise. Students from the Findlay Culinary Training Program work in the kitchen as part of a partnership with the nonprofit CityLink Center, which uses a team-centered and holistic approach to help individuals break free from poverty.
