Put on your fancy hats Columbus, it’s time to add a little sophistication to our diet.
Look, when it comes down to it, you put up with a lot Columbus. You’ve got a soccer team that’s trying its best to leave you like a really bad boyfriend in a John Hughes movie, you have a bunch of retired car salesmen types and possibly Jerry Springer running for your state governor, and now your beloved Ohio State wants to tear down Adriatico’s (a tragedy in and of itself).
It’s a shame really, but day in and day out, you endure Columbus. And for that, it’s time to award yourself with some fancy pants food. And not just any old fancy food, we’re talking multiple course tasting menus that will get you forgetting all about your daily Columbus woes. Here’s a fist full of spots you’ll want to check out the next time the classy mood strikes you.
