The Columbus restaurant scene is the most competitive ever, with more types of cuisines and price ranges than ever before.
Top-notch establishments abound, so restaurants on this list aren’t the only local sources of quality food.
Like any other restaurant ratings, this list is subjective. The primary criterion: quality of the food. Value, the surroundings and the level of service also are taken into consideration — as are other factors, such as the willingness to take reservations, noise level, menu variety and attention to details (quality of the bread, olive oil and butter, for example).
I’ve compiled just the list of restaurants below for those in need of instant gratification (in alpha order, split into “Top 10” and “Next Tier” as in the article):
Dragonfly Neo-V Cuisine
Kihachi Japanese Restaurant
Trattoria La Tavola
The Worthington Inn
And the Next Tier:
Barnum & Tibbets Prime Kitchen & Wine Bar
Bar of Modern Art
Doc Henderson’s Restaurant
Thom’s On Grandview
Z Cucina Di Spirito
