Restaurant Roundup: New Food Truck, New Menus & more
Columbus has so many new restaurants, expansions, menu updates and other changes, sometimes it’s hard to keep up with everything. That’s why our Restaurant Roundup series was designed to keep you informed with the latest and greatest updates. Here’s what’s new in the local dining scene:
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
Yes, there’s officially a day for everything, including a designated Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, going down on Saturday, Feb. 2. To celebrate, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is debuting a limited time flavor.
Jeni’s scoop shops throughout Columbus will open early at 9 a.m. to offer the exclusive flavor, Banana French Toast, with select locations offering Bacca Coffee. Profits from sales made between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. will benefit She Should Run, a nonpartisan organization aiming to get 250,000 women to run for office by 2030.
The new flavor is available for a limited time and may run out before end-of-day on Feb. 2.

Stop by The Eagle in the Short North to try out a few of their new menu items. The food and beer hall is known for its fried chicken, which has remained a staple on its menu, though a few dishes have been replaced.
The Eagle traded out their house corn nuts for fritters made with jalapeño, corn, bacon, cheddar and their signature comeback sauce. They’ve added burgoo to their soups, a stew of pork, chicken, assorted veggies and cornbread croutons. They’ve swapped out the knife and fork sloppy joe for a cordon bleu sandwich. And they’re featuring a number of cocktails, including their Eagle Iced Tea, and a house made Blackberry Lemonade made with Tito’s and Elderflower Liqueur.

Nate’s Steamed Bagels
A new food truck has appeared. Nate’s Steamed Bagels, formerly a popup, is now a regular at the recently opened Antiques on High in the Brewery District.
The business took off in the summer of 2017, when Nate’s popped up at Platform Beer Co., but their partnership with Antiques on High marks the debut of their food truck. Nate’s serves up a selection of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert sandwiches, served on a variety of bagels, including plain, everything, jalapeño, wheat, blueberry and chocolate chip. For their bagels they’ve partnered with Barry Bagels in Westerville.
You can catch them at Antiques on High every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit their website for more information or to order catering.
