Eight years and counting.

That’s how long we here at (614) have been categorizing, grouping, voting, ranking and awarding the best of the best here in the capital city.

The tastemakers, the faces of media; the chefs, haunts, and artists; the things you purchase and the places you visit.

The hot spots that define our city and make up our weekend destinations deserve a yearly shout-out for their work and their innovation.

From the best neighborhood bars, to your favorite Italian food, to the best cocktail menu, to the best pick up joint in the city, thousands of readers voted on the best that Columbus has to offer in work and in play. We’ve sifted out the cream of the crop for a moment in the well-deserved spotlight, and we’re havin’ a big old party to celebrate. Soon, the winners will have a chance to gather and toast the victors, and maybe even take a load off to sit back and admire how far they’ve come. After that, it’s back to work to vie for next year’s title.

Almost 30,000 unique voters cast over a million votes in all of our myriad categories, some time-tested, some brand new. One thing that remains year after year: The pride felt by the winners at the appreciation from the people they strive to serve day in and day out.

Therein lies the beauty of a massive reader poll: We don’t decide on the winners, dear readers—you do.

As it turns out, you don’t have to be in NOLA to get your hands on some authentic creole cooking, from Po’ Boys and gumbo to their signature crawfish etouffee, a staple in any Louisiana cookbook. (Or, as they call it in the south by its far less appetizing name, mudbug stew.)
