November 9, 2023

Want to support local restaurants? Curious about new openings or under-the-radar finds? Here are five restaurants I’m suggesting you try this month!

1. Clutch Handheld Breakfast

Clutch Handheld Breakfast is a food trailer parked at Hudson and Summit serving breakfast sandwiches Thursdays-Sundays. You can order at the trailer or online. They offer a handful of sandwiches; our favorites are the chorizo muffin and the French toast sando.

2. HillGarten Beer & Wine Garden

Although patio days may be winding down, we’ll still take any opportunity for al fresco drinks and eats. HillGarten sits in downtown Hilliard, and features a huge beer garden with picnic tables, firepits, and igloos. You can order beer, cocktails, and German snacks like pretzels and sausage sandwiches at the little shack.

3. Kyushu Ramen Bar

“No Ramen – No Peace!” say the signs at Kyushu Ramen Bar. The ramen shop now has two locations – Grandview and Lewis Center – where they serve rich and filling bowls of ramen alongside dumplings, fried chicken, chashu buns, and more.

4. La Super Torta

5. GoreMade Pizza

Nick Gore and his team at GoreMade Pizza whip up some of the most unique pies in the city. They get creative with all sorts of ingredients, including some foraged locally. So you can order some of their set menu items (I’m partial to the mushroom and truffle Clintonvillain) or you can let them craft something unique.

GoreMade Pizza
936 N. Fourth St.
Columbus, OH 43201
