Restaurant Roundup: News from Sweet Carrot, Veritas and 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:
G. Michael’s Bistro & Bar
The German Village restaurant has introduce a new seasonal menu, conceptualized by chef David Tetzloff.
The brand new bill of fare features small plates, summer entrees, seafood, and veggie-based dishes. Guests will find a variety of options, including fried green tomatoes with crab fondue and grilled corn salad; “Megan’s broiled chicken,” which comes with broiled eggplant, potato, zucchini, tomatoes, basil pesto and a goat cheese croquette; and a Raz-al Hanout roasted cauliflower with ratatouille, toasted almonds, red pepper-tomato coulis and falafel.
The restaurant’s so-called signature dish, shrimp & grits, is now accented with country ham, andouille sausage, and stone-ground yellow grits.

This weekend is a sales tax holiday all across Ohio. That means from Friday, August 3 through Sunday, August 5, shoppers won’t have to pay sales tax on their purchases.
In celebration, local restaurant Sweet Carrot Polaris has concocted a sweet deal for guests who mention “Tax Free Day” during their visit on Friday, August 3. The first 50 people in the door will receive a free specialty entree. Every customer after that will get a $5-off coupon for the next time they spend $20 or more.
“Even with the tax exemption that day, parents will be shelling out a ton of money to get all the things they need to get ready for the new school year,” said Sweet Carrot CEO and Owner Angela Petro in a press release. “We wanted to give folks a great, modern casual meal, a chance to unwind from the shopping, while giving their credit cards a breather.”

The Downtown restaurant is nixing lunch service, serving up the midday meal for the last time on Thursday, August 2. In a Facebook post, the restaurant made the announcement, adding that they’re looking to “get back to their roots.”
