There’s a lot happening in the Columbus restaurant world; here’s the latest for this week:

  • North Market announced its newest vendor, Willowbeez Soulveg, a vegan soul food restaurant, coming this spring to the old Pistacia Vera stall in the market’s northwest corner.
  • Multiple outlets have reported on Jackie O’s Brewery’s plans to add a substantial, two-level rooftop patio to its taproom on Fourth Street in downtown Columbus.
  • Cajun Boil Bar in Reynoldsburg added its second location this week at 1748 E. Dublin Granville Rd.
  • Multiple sources also reported that The Top Steakhouse plans its first expansion in about 30 years: a large patio, set to open late spring.
  • Business First reported two items this week: the Jimmy V’s near German Village is now Double Take Bar & Grill, and Lola’s Kitchen + Bar plans a return to downtown.
  • Columbus Monthly has partnered with Columbus Food Adventures to feature the 10 eateries included in the magazine’s Best New Restaurants 2021. The delivered meals will be available March 9-13 and 16-20. Get more details and tickets at
