The 7 Most Anticipated New Restaurants In Columbus Opening Soon

Some people get excited about the newest installment of the next Hollywood movie franchise, and while I’m a sucker for a good superhero blockbuster hit, I’m most excited when it comes to food or food related activities (namely the eating of food). That’s why I’m super jacked for all the great new eateries making their way to Central Ohio this year. I’m all about a diverse variety of grub to chow down on and I know my city is too. That’s why I made this awesome list of the hottest new restaurants making their way to Columbus this year. From Pizza to comfort food, you’re gonna find something to look forward to.

I dare you to find a more perfect combination of items than a burger and craft beer. With a huge selection of bottled and tapped crafts, as well as a huge menu of burgers and sandwiches, this bar and grill takes the great American classic to the next level. Bru Burger will be coming to a new retail strip in the Westerville Polaris area with ground breaking happening in late April.

Clintonville and Easton Hot Chicken Takeover

The whole city is in love with Hot Chicken Takeover, and for good reason, their crispy, spicy chicken has been wowing city residents and poultry aficionados since they opened in the North Market. Now Columbus has two new brick and mortar HCTs to look forward to, one in Clintonville and the other in Easton. You’ll be able to get all that deep-fried goodness at a location a bit closer to you.

Originally a Delaware creation, Veritas will soon be opening its doors in the heart of Columbus. With an assortment of small plates and cocktails, this restaurant has made a name for itself by making dishes that are as delicious in taste as they are gorgeous to the eye. You can catch them at 51 N. High st. later this year in a 2700 square foot space. Try the eight course tasting for a truly memorable dining experience.

Service Bar

A dining concept brought together by Middle West Spirits, Service Bar will be a completely original dining experience coming to the Central Ohio area. The craft distilling company is bringing in Avishar Barua, former chef at Varitas Tavern in Delaware, to put together an original and innovative dinner menu. Service Bar will no doubt feature cocktails made from the distillery’s own craft spirits paired with Barua’s own American cuisine. The restaurant follows the company’s multi-million dollar expansion but there is no date, as of yet, for its opening.

Due this Spring in Dublin’s Bridge Park is 3 Palm Pizzeria, a restaurant dedicated to making authentic Neapolitan Pizza. Made in handcrafted wood-burning ovens, this Hudson, Ohio-based pizzeria uses genuine ingredients for all of their Italian cuisine. The Dublin location will be the first one in Columbus and should be up and running sometime this Spring.

Giordano’s Deep Dish Pizza

The Columbus area has been long overdue for a decent Chicago style deep dish joint and soon the city will get that very wish. Giordano’s Deep Dish Pizza will be opening a location at Polaris, bringing its famous stuffed pizza and hand stretched thin crusts to Ohio for the first time. With stores in Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, and Indiana, it was only a matter of time before Giordano’s made their move to the buckeye state. No notice yet on when the doors will open but a liquor license has already been purchased at the old Buffalo Wild Wings at 2137 Polaris Parkway near the new Ikea.

Though coffee and pizza may seem like an odd combination, this local cafe/pizzeria takes pride in providing quality in both. With New York style pizza made fresh in a brick oven and homemade gelato, this restaurant will be opening this Thursday at 6 a.m. Stop by this week for a cup of joe and a slice of ‘za.
