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:


Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza has launched two new pizza crusts as of July 16. Guests can now opt for a Keto Crust, containing six grams of net carbs, or the Cauliflower Crust. Both are gluten-free.

Along with the two new crusts, Blaze has released a new line of Life Mode Pizzas, including a keto pizza, protein pizza, vegan pizza, and vegetarian pizza.

Blaze has two locations in central Ohio, including one in Westerville (7166 N. High St.) and one on OSU’s campus (1708 N. High St.).

Austin-based Chuy’s will open its second Columbus location this fall. The Tex-Mex chain will open at 1481 Polaris Pkwy.

The restaurant’s menu features a selection of appetizers, salads, soups, burritos, tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, specialties and combinations. A small kids menu is available as well.

Chuy’s first central Ohio location at Easton Town Center (4154 Seward St.) opened in 2015.

Locally-based ice cream shop Jeni’s has collaborated with Tyler, The Creator to put out new flavor Snowflake. It combines cool peppermint with warm spearmint and white chocolate throughout. 

The flavor is available online in a limited edition Snowflake Pack that comes with a GOLF t-shirt, and in all of Jeni’s Scoop Shops.

Beverages include juices like the Beet Drop, with red beets, pineapple, lemon, and apple; and a cucumber limeade with fresh citrus, agave nectar and cold pressed cucumber. They’ve got a number of cold pressed cocktails, a cold brew, kombucha, and over a dozen wines.
