Columbus is filled with amazing restaurants both old and new. Each year our readers and contributors deliberate over the best of the best to determine our top restaurants list for the year, which is always a difficult decision given the wide range of choices and options that exist. This year’s Top 25 list (there’s too many to limit to a Top 10 list) includes classic fine dining establishments as well as newer modern cuisine. And at the top of the list this year is The Guild House, one of the newer concepts from Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which launched in the Short North in early 2015.

The menu at The Guild House is described as “rustic chic, pairing approachable dishes with upscale, colorful presentations”. Located on the ground floor of Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph hotel, The Guild House serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner to guests and locals alike with current menu options including lobster & eggs (brunch), duck confit orecchiette (lunch) and a ribeye with turnip puree (dinner).
