Hey guys! Another week has passed, and I can’t believe that March is over. Ohio weather was *finally* starting to warm up a teeny tiny bit, but then, of course, yesterday it snowed. However, I’m confident we only have a few more weeks of cold weather (fingers crossed!). This week, I thought I’d write a new post about 5 of my favorite restaurants in Columbus. The five places I chose are super close to campus, so my roommates and I frequent them quite often (maybe too much). If you are ever in the Columbus area, I would definitely recommend trying a few out!
DISCLAIMER: Columbus has an amazing selection of restaurants, and this list doesn’t even begin to cover them all. I just thought I would share some of my favorites with you guys.
P.S. Click on the name of the restaurant to head over to their site!
My 5 Favorite Restaurants in Columbus
Up first has been a staple place of mine since freshmen year. Their tacos are reasonably priced, and they have a lot of delicious appetizers and dips. Oh! And, their chips are made in house and always come out warm.
Honorable mention for Mexican restaurants: Bakersfield Tacos for their delicious margaritas.
Cleveland friends: Condado and Bakersfield both recently opened up locations in our area! Condado is now located at Pinecrest and Bakersfield is on West 6th downtown. I definitely recommend trying them out!
This place is a bit less casual than my other choices. It’s a really delicious Italian joint perfect for all occasions. My family and I made reservations here for after my graduation so I will be sure to snap a lot of pictures and share them with you all.
My roommate, Mikayla, introduced me to this restaurant late last fall. They have a huge wood fire pizza oven, and they offer a variety of thin crust pizzas. I personally recommend their white sauce pizza. They also have vegan options! Their décor was absolutely beautiful, too. Check this place out if you’re a pizza-lover like me.
Ethyl is best known as a bar on campus, however, they also have fabulous brunch and lunch/dinner menus! This is definitely one of the best places around Ohio State’s campus for traditional bar food, and the atmosphere is one of my favorites. It’s a great place to watch a ~ sports game~ with friends.
Last, but not least, brunch!
Number five on my list are a few brunch places in Columbus– I couldn’t choose just one!
Forno is another great Italian restaurant with a stellar brunch menu.
Union Cafe – awesome all you can eat brunch with mimosas and a bloody Mary bar!
