Downtown Columbus gets better?

Downtown Columbus on Monday welcomed two new businesses: Momma Goldberg's Deli (1101 Broadway) and Big Dog Running Company (1104 Broadway).

Momma Goldberg's Deli, pictured above, is a Georgia-Alabama restaurant chain that specializes in signature sandwiches like Momma's Love (roast beef, ham and turkey).

Hours are 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday, 10 a.m.-2 a.m. Thursday-Saturday. It'll be about a week until the downtown deli receives its alcohol license, employees said Monday.

Big Dog Running Company is billed online as a "full service specialty running store," Big Dog Running Company offers shoes, apparel and accessories. Guests use special equipment like an in-store treadmill to help ensure shoes fit properly.

Beginning the week of Nov. 15, Big Dog Running Company will offer group runs that start and end at the store. Check the store's website for more details.

Weigh in: Do the new offerings make you more excited about the downtown landscape? What will the late weekend hours at Momma Goldberg's do for the local nightlife scene?
