“Don’t sleep on this city,” Columbus makes Food & Wine’s top 32 list

Guess who made Food & Wine‘s list of “32 Places To Go (And Eat) in 2019?” Hint: It’s us!

Under the category “The Ones We Expect Big Things From,” Columbus was placed #10 on the list.

“If there’s one thing we know about the Midwest now, it’s to stop expecting certain things from the Midwest, and certainly not Ohio’s capital city, which has a nearly Sun Belt-esque buoyancy about it these days, as it welcomes all-comers, from all over the world, into the ever-growing fold.”


Food & Wine Editors called attention to “some of the best momos in the country, a promising young chef recreating the fast food favorites from childhood, to a raft of makers creating everything from terrific charcuterie to very fine chocolates, you’re never short on things to eat, and we haven’t even gotten to one of America’s best Japanese bakeries, hiding out in the suburbs, or the crazy good banana pudding at the very good hot chicken place, or the top notch cafes.”

That is Momo Ghar, Service Bar Executive Chef Avishar Barua, North Country Charcuterie, MmeloBell’s Bread, Hot Chicken Takeover, and Fox in the Snow and Flowers & Bread, respectively.

“Seriously, don’t sleep on this city. Good things are happening,” wrote the editors.
