Coined in the early '90s in London (and popularized in New York), the phrase "gastro pub" is supposed to suggest a place with a warm, casual publike atmosphere that offers upscale food. But even so, the name of Columbia's new restaurant, Victoria Gastro Pub, is unfortunate. It sounds too medical to be appealing.
