Best Bites Preview: Market 65
This Thursday, March 24th, Columbus Underground will be hosting Best Bites: Pizza — a celebration of the city’s best pizza shops, pizza food trucks, restaurants and more. And what goes better with pizza than a nice crisp salad? Market 65 will be joining us with salad samples to compliment the wide array of pies. This event is sold out, but we wanted to bring you one final preview, to encourage you to eat your veggies.
Since its opening in 2011, Market 65 has been serving up “honest food” to patrons, showcasing high-quality local produce, meats and cheese from Ohio farmers. The inspiration for the restaurant came from a love of restaurants, people, and a belief in the direction Downtown Columbus is heading. Located at 65 East State Street, Market 65 filled a gap in the Downtown dining scene: a quick, fresh, healthy option. The past five years have seen much success for this fast casual restaurant. In 2013, they added the “Salad Bar” — featuring a rotating selection of Ohio microbrews and glasses of wine — becoming a convenient happy hour location for Downtown workers.
At Best Bites: Pizza, Market 65 will be showcasing two of their signature salads: The House Italian and the “Green Machine”. The House Italian, a classic salad features a Romaine Spinach Blend, Cucumber, Tomato, Bell Pepper and Shredded Mozzarella, topped with their Nana’s House Italian dressing. The “Green Machine” speaks to its name, a mix of Spinach, Avocado, Broccoli, Edamame, Asparagus, Chickpeas, and Sunflower Seeds topped with a Garlic Tahini dressing.
