COLUMBUS, Ohio (COLUMBUS BUSINESS FIRST) – The upcoming Subourbon Southern Kitchen and Spirits is a classic example of finding the right place at the right time.

Hough and Patrick Marker own Alqueria Farmhouse Kitchen, which they opened at 247 King Ave. in the University District in 2019. That was the first restaurant of their own after years at Barcelona in German Village.
