      Haven't been to Columbia in years, but we've always had good meals and good times at Garabaldi's. Crispy flounder was amazing. Hope it's still good.

            Mediterranean Tea Room on Devine has great Greek/Middle Eastern food in a very casual, somewhat funky atmosphere. Diannes on Devine and Momo's (also on Devine) are popular -- upscale and very mainstream. Blue Marlin (corner of Gervais and Lincoln) is always good and is located in a neat, old train station that has been beautifully restored. Not sure which are open on Sunday nights -- I know that Blue Marlin is open then. . .
