Best Everyday Restaurant of 2013: Northstar Café
According to our readers, Northstar Café is the kind of place you can go to any time of day, any day of the week. For three years straight, the small local chain of restaurants has won this designation over fierce competition from other local favorites.
“While the business now has three locations, things are still hopping at the original Northstar in the Short North,” said CU Restaurant Critic Miriam Bowers Abbott in her September review. “It’s pleasantly loud and clattering like a chic cafeteria with a million installations of chatty diners.”
Fans of Northstar will soon have a fourth location in Westerville to add into their rotation when it opens sometime next year.
