There’s a lot happening in the Columbus restaurant world – here’s the latest!

  • Land-Grant Brewing released their newest beer, Quadrahopic, an IPA created with four different types of hops.
  • New India Restaurant on Bethel Road announced they are introducing a special menu with Mughlai recipes. Last year the restaurant was taken over by the owners of Mughal Darbar, which used to be located in the University District (and is now home to Cazuela’s).
  • The forthcoming Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris Hotel announced the name of their new in-house restaurant. The name was opened up to a public contest, and the winning choice ended up being The Two-One, named in honor of the 21st Amendment.
  • The Hilltop ice cream and coffee shop Cream & Sugar has opened for the season. Find the shop at 2185 Sullivant Ave. They’re open from 2-9 p.m. daily through September.
  • North Market announced that as of Apr. 1 they will ban non-recyclable and single-use styrofoam cups, containers, plates, and trays from use by their merchants.
  • FoxFire Tacos announced they are now serving out of Little Rock Bar on Saturdays from 6 p.m. to midnight and on Sundays from 4-8 p.m.
  • The Earth Fare grocery store at 1440 Gemini Pl. announced they will be closing at the end of this month.
  • Mozart’s Cafe announced that in the coming years they will be shifting away from primarily retail operations and focusing more on special events. They will continue serving breakfast and lunch, as well as operating the bakery.
  • 2 Tones Brewing in Whitehall announced they’re moving to a larger production space and will add a taproom later this year.
