May 22, 2020

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

  • Yesterday, May 21, Ohio restaurants were allowed to open for dine-in service with some restrictions (spacing between customers, limited seating, cleaning protocols). Many restaurants have opened, while just as many are choosing to do carryout or delivery only.
