2014 was a very good year for dining out in Columbus. Not only have many classic restaurants continued to update their menus and reinvent themselves, we’ve also seen a plethora of brand new establishments open all throughout the calendar year. And the new restaurants aren’t just great in terms of quantity, many are also of very high quality. When we asked our readers to pick their favorite, all of the entries that made the Top 10 list were only separated by a few votes each. It was a very close race, but Bareburger topped them all in the number one spot.

This New York based restaurant was franchised locally by Columbus fans of the original, and opened in the old Yankee Trader building Downtown in March.

“Bareburger does a good thing for the local food scene — it offers lots of comfort, party foods with a style that embraces organic, non-gmo lifestyles,” said CU Food Critic Miriam Bowers Abbott in her review earlier this year. “There’s room for that in Columbus.”
