Columbus always has many new restaurants, expansions, menu updates and other changes, and 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:

The RAM Restaurant and Brewery

The RAM Restaurant and Brewery will open a Dublin location at Bridge Park on Monday, July 31, its second Ohio store and Dublin’s first brewery.

The RAM’s menu features flame-grilled burgers, sandwiches, salads and tacos, along with specialties like fish and chips and mac and cheese. The offerings are accompanied by the RAM brews, which have won awards in the Great American Beer Festival, The World Cup, and The North American Beer Festival.

Along with the restaurant, The RAM will bring “philanthropic initiatives” to the neighborhood, first partnering with the Dublin Food Pantry for their private pre-grand-opening events.

The RAM will be open daily at 11 a.m., serving lunch and dinner, and will offer a happy hour Monday through Friday, from 3 to 6 p.m. It’s located at 6632 Longshore St.

Bottoms Up Coffee Co-Op

The Franklinton coffee co-op celebrated one year this month. In celebration, the day was used to highlight initiatives they’ve taken to address issues impacting local families.

“In our first year, we have raised awareness about infant mortality, given away Baby Boxes and donated items, hired a Community Health Worker, raised over $3,000 for nonprofits and through the Diaper Gap Fund and started several community programs such as Game Night and Friday Walk for Infant Mortality,” said a press release.

The business has also put a focus on helping undocumented immigrants, challenging deportation efforts in Columbus by attempting to raise $20,000 to hire a “Community Deportation Advocate,” who will “help families impacted by deportation” and “maximize community services and support for their case.”

Their house made Lobster Salad will be offered as well, “served inside a buttered and griddled split top bun, with a side of Ballreich’s Potato Chips, a glass of lemonade and a Der Dutchman fruit handpie,” according to a press release.
