Sometimes you need a meal that is fast, but better than fast food. And that’s where fast casual comes into play. While chains like Chipotle might be the default go-to for many people, Columbus is home to a lot of fast casual options, many of which are locally based.

At the top of the list this year is Brassica, a local fast casual restaurant from the makers of Northstar Cafe, which got it start selling Mediterranean-style meals in 2015 in the Short North. Since then, Brassica has expanded to Upper Arlington and Bexley — with their first Cleveland-area location launching in Shaker Heights earlier this year.
