Today, Eater returns to Columbus, Ohio, to focus on 12 buzz-worthy restaurants and bars that have opened in the past year. Once again, longtime Columbus food writer and executive editor of Sixonefork.com Beth Stallings serves up her picks for the hottest dining the city currently has on offer.
“The Columbus food scene is hitting a fun stride with what I’d say are more quality and noteworthy restaurants opening than I’ve seen in years,” says Stallings. “Chefs long considered up-and-comers — food truck owners or sous chefs at notable restaurants — now have kitchens of their own, and they are rapidly changing the way we eat here, for the better.”
Among her picks: hearth-baked bagels (the Lox Bagel Shop), artful plant-based cuisine (Comune), and burgers with house-made “Funyuns” (Preston’s). To drink, Columbusites are flocking to a crowded former bank lobby (the Citizens Trust), an arcade-meets-distillery (High Bank Distillery Co.), and a Franklinton brewery with rooftop bar and views for days (BrewDog Franklinton).
Here now, embracing the hype, is the Eater Heatmap to Columbus.Read More
