What Columbus Monthly calls “one of Columbus’ best restaurants” closed this past weekend.
Kihachi Japanese Restaurant at 2667 Federated Blvd has permanently closed and Chef-owner Ryuji “Mike” Kimura will enter his long-planned retirement.
Known best for tradition and omakase menus, Kihachi was the Japanese cuisine authority in Columbus for 25 years.
