restaurant question.. Thu, 02/16/06 11:44 AM (permalink)
Hi, I'm new, so forgive me if I am posting the wrong question, or in the wrong place. I am hoping someone is from, or has been to columbus ohio, and can recommend some good restaurants there. We go there once a month for a business meeting, and we only know one good restaurant... anything that is sit down, dinner type... no fast food. probably more american... the one we already found is italian and it is great, so we 'd like something different...Can anyone help???

    You probably will get more answers if you post this on the Regional Thread.. where do I eat?..ANd if you scroll back several pages once you go to that thread, you may even find that area listed where others have asked previously..


    We have several RF fanatics () in that area..
    Stick around for awhile... you will enjoy this site...I do!
    Welcome!

                Where to begin? There are so many excellent restaurants in Columbus and it's suburbs. In downtown Columbus there are two wonderful steakhouses. There is a Morton's and there is Mitchell's. Another extraordinary restaurant is M, which is located in the Miranova building. Close to downtown in German Village is the Clarmont. Also in German Village is Lindey's. In the Short North, along High Street Rigsby's is excellent. East on Main Street you'll find The Top, which is a traditional steakhouse. On the North Side there is The Refectory (which boasts one of the finest wine cellars in the nation, according to Wine Spectator Magazine). I believe the finest Italian restaurant in the Columbus area is Scali's, but it is east of Columbus in Reynoldsburg. Back north again, there's a Mitchell's and a Ruth's Chris just north of I-270 off High Street/U.S. 23.

                I can tell you of a number of other fine restaurants, but these should do for a while.

                Oh, and welcome to Roadfood.

                        Neb Guy,
                        It may be before your time. But do you remember the Toddle House in Omaha? On another thread, I noted that I didn't realize Toddle House was a chain until I happened upon one on a rainy night in Omaha, circa 1969.

                          thanks for the restaurant recomendations. I did check out Ohio restaurants, and didn't have much luck with Columbus ones. Thanks again.

                            Sorry Bear.. I moved here in 1968 but I was only 8 years old at the time. I do remember some places that have come and gone from back then but not this one.

                              You're welcome. I did leave out one extraordinary restaurant, also downtown. Handke's Cuisine, which is operated by Harmut Handke, one of just a few master chefs in the United States, and a several-time competitor (winning at least once) in the Bocuse D'Or.
