Restaurant Week Is Back

The rumors are true. Save the date, Restaurant Week is back: July 18-23, 2016.

Calling all foodies & Columbus lovers. From July 18th-23rd you can try an array of selections from more than 100 of the city’s finest restaurants. Each restaurant will create special three-course menus at a discounted price to show off their chefs’ talents during Restaurant Week Columbus presented by (614) and Marathon Petroleum.

Whether it’s a Columbus staple, a restaurant shaking things up or someone new on the scene, it’s a perfect opportunity to try places you’ve been putting off – and with $5000 going to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, the whole community benefits. Here’s a look at some of the movers and shakers for this event:

Bareburger is your all-natural and all-organic type of restaurant! If you love a laid back mid-western burger joint then this is your place, my friend. They take pride in fresh, clean food that’s as good as it looks—and don’t forget to save room for their Hot Honey Milkshake.

If you’re looking for another restaurant that uses fresh and local food, check out The Whitney House. This family restaurant was inspired to create a place where you can eat like you’re having Sunday dinner with friends or relatives. It’s a place to sit, catch up, and eat home-cooked meals. ‘Locally sourced and crafted with love’; this is a place you’ve got to try!

Love to eat AND get a discount for your community involvement? Try The Crest – Parsons; the second location in The Crest Family. This new restaurant offers discounts to guests if you have a public transportation card, a bike helmet, work at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and more! We love a tasty restaurant that takes pride in the community and offers top-notch Mac and Cheese.

Eat. Drink. Nada. This fun modern twist on Mexican food has expanded the restaurant choices for the Arena District locals. Grab a big group and make room for one of their specialty drinks; we suggest the Blueberry Limonada. And did we mention they do brunch? Do. Not. Miss. This.

Need a place to go to before a CBJ game or concert? Try Dick’s Last Resort in the Arena District. This is your go-to place for a good laugh and tasty grub. Known for its outrageous service style, be ready to poke fun of yourself while hanging out on their awesome outdoor patio.

Are you a true blue Cameron Mitchell Restaurant fan? Then try Hudson 29 – New Albany or Upper Arlington, it will not disappoint! With top-notch service, savory American dishes, and more than 100 bottles of wine to choose from, Hudson 29 is the perfect place for a date night.

Spice up your taste buds by visiting Arepazo, a restaurant with authentic South American cuisine located right in Central Ohio! With two participating locations (Brewery District and Gahanna), this is a great getaway with your friends for an affordable meal and a full bar. With a sweet and spicy menu option, we dare you to look at their options without drooling.
