Happy Restaurant Week, hungry people

Mark your calendars with a big saucy thumbprint because Restaurant Week Columbus is happening every day this week! Unfortunately, we haven’t secured it as a national holiday yet so you’ll have to go to work but once that whistle blows at 5pm, it’s chow time.

Over 100 of the tastiest restaurants around the city have prepared three course spreads at smokin’ prices; $15, $20, $25, or $30. This is a perfect opportunity to try out those restaurants you’ve been meaning to nom at. Plus, you won’t bust your budget. PLUS, $1 will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio for every Restaurant Week photo tagged #EAT614 on Instagram.

So pretty much it’s a win for your stomach, a win for your wallet, a win for your social media, and a win for local charities. It’d be a pity for you not to participate but it’d be a downright shame if you didn’t enter to win our sweet prize packages.

One lucky winner will receive gift cards good for dinner for 4 people at 5 Restaurant Week joints and a $500 Marathon gas card. If your lucky rabbits foot went through the wash last week and you’re running low on good juju, you can still be one of 24 others will win dinner for 2 on us.

Let us feed you and your vehicle, will ya?

Block's Bagels and Deli has served Central Ohio from its Bexley location since 1967. Now, the Central Ohio institution will offer its most popular classic offerings to shoppers in the North Market.

"Like a bagel with cream cheese, I believe North Market and Block's Bagels are a perfect pairing," said Block's owner Jeremy Fox in a statement. "We share similar core values and purpose, bringing community together through tradition, sustainability, and excellence. We are very happy to soon be able to call North Market home and look forward to expanding the new version of Block's Bagels."

Fox says the Block's Bagels at North Market will offer a full range of classic deli sandwiches, house made chicken, tuna, and egg salad; traditional deli sides such as dill potato salad, green apple slaw, and pickles; classic staples offered in the best New York delis: potato knishes, potato latkes, matzah ball soup; and everyone's favorite: black and white cookies.

"Since 1967, Block's has been and continues to be the most proper bagel and delicatessen in not just the Central Ohio area, but I would argue the entire Midwest," said North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe. "Block's belongs in North Market and we welcome this iconic institution."
