Chicago’s Forbidden Root Restaurant & Brewery will make its Columbus debut at Easton this Friday, November 29. Doors to the 12,000 square foot space at 4080 Worth Ave. open at 4 p.m. as the brewery stakes its claim as the first concept to open in the $500 million Easton expansion.

Spanning two levels, the brewery seats around 300 with plenty of spaces to accommodate large groups. There will be 12 beers on tap at all times – 10 of Forbidden Root’s own and a rotating selection of two guest brews.

To pair with their beers, Forbidden Root guests will nosh on a menu of bar snacks like Ramen Seasoned Popcorn and Smoky BBQ Potato chips; shareable cheese and charcuterie plates, and small plates, which feature soup, salads, wings and more. In the mains department, Forbidden Root offers dishes like a Milk Brined Pork Schnitzel Sandwich, Duck & Dumplings, House Made Fettuccine and more.

Come warmer months, Forbidden Root will add seating on its patio, accessible via garage doors on the lower level. Upstairs can also become an open-air dining experience with retractable windows and a view that overlooks the outdoor stage that’s a part of the new development.

To start, Forbidden Root will be open daily from 4 – 11:30 p.m.
