New Polaris restaurant brings local focus to unique dining experience

Sagas Restaurant Group—the group behind Atlas Tavern—is opening a new concept at 2050 Polaris Parkway in the Spring of 2020.

To help set itself apart from other dining options in the area, this yet-to-be-named concept will utilize novel pieces of restaurant equipment unique to the Columbus market: a Josper oven and Basque grill from Spain.

Imported from Spain’s Basque region, the hardwood grill will be one of only 100 in North America. This machine combines the best aspects of an oven and a grill, and is 100% fueled by charcoal and hardwoods. With superior temperature control versus other charcoal grills, the Basque grill can generate temperatures from 450 degrees all the way up to 900 degrees, creating amazing seared charcoal flavor while retaining optimum moisture.

According to a statement, this new concept will offer “approachable, upscale food at the best possible value,” utilizing the best sourced ingredients. Menu items such as oak barrel teriyaki New York strip, lemon rosemary short ribs, wood grilled peach goat cheese and arugula salad, and charcoal roasted chicken with lemon confit are already being teased.

Above all, the developers hope this concept will bring a much needed local focus to Polaris.

“We believe one aspect the Polaris area is still missing out on is the local Columbus culture,” a representative said via a prepared statement. “While Downtown, Easton or Bridge Park are all great destinations, the North Side population deserves to have an option for non-chain, locally sourced, and well-designed restaurants without having to drive out of the way or commit to an entire evening out.”

Fans of The Market Italian Village certainly aren't enjoying this temporary closure while it undergoes renovations, but the restaurant promises the wait will be worth it.

The neighborhood restaurant recently announced in a release "big changes" coming to the space to create more "experienced-based dining."

"We’ve teamed up with incredible designers, architects, and artists to give our space a beautiful update and we can’t keep our mouths shut about it any longer!" wrote The Market Italian Village on Facebook.

The Market is currently closed and will reopen to guests the weekend after Thanksgiving with two very special additions:

  • Columbus’ FIRST chef's table - A unique experience to get up close and personal with one of the city’s most unique chefs, Tyler Minnis. The reservation-based tasting counter seats four and will face toward the kitchen, giving guests direct access to Chef Tyler throughout the dining experience as he creates a four-course tasting menu. Available for $50-60 per person on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
  • Community Table Seating - Perfect for group dining, this intimate booth is reservations-only for large parties, seating up to 16 guests. Those seated at the community table will order from a pre-set family-style menu, pre-determined by Chef Tyler on a monthly basis.

The post went on to say the restaurant "just scratched the surface" of its announcements.

You now have five more reasons to be excited for Dublin's North Market with its recent announcement of merchants. North Market veterans and newbies alike are coming together for the first phase of committed businesses for the Bridge Park public market.

Momo Ghar, Dough Mama, Market Bar, Coastal Local Seafood, and The Dublin Farmer's Daughter will occupy five of the 19 stalls.

“Like we have done for 143 years at our downtown location, we are successfully curating the best-in-class fresh meats, seafood, bakery, and produce categories for the Bridge Park facility that will provide a unique experience for visitors,” said North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe.

In case you're not hip to the dynamite dumplings, Momo Ghar will be opening a third location inside North Market Bridge Park. As Food & Wine so affectionately wrote, “Once you try this food, you will never have any problem finding your way back here.”

Dough Mama is yet another Central Ohio favorite, serving "stick-to-your-bones" comfort food with a twist, according to the website. Guests can enjoy homemade biscuits, sandwiches, soups, desserts, pastries, and more.

Market Bar will be quenching the adult thirsts of North Market Bridge Park goers with a variety of craft beer and fine wines to go. This concept is owned by Pete Volker and Wayne Lin.

Central Ohio seafood distributor Ian Holmes, owner of Coastal Local Seafood, will bring his expertise to the North Market Bridge Park merchant community. Upon opening their first retail shop at North Market Bridge Park, Coastal Local Seafood will be able to provide the same wonderful seafood ingredients for home chefs and will also serve on-site menu items such as lobster rolls and crab cakes. Dublin residents and guests can look forward to enjoying fresh oysters at the New England-themed raw bar.

The Dublin Farmer's Daughter is a new concept from the owners of Copia Farm, partners Caitlin Bergman and Dan McLeod. This venture will focus on the highest quality ingredients sourced from our farm and other local farms said Bergman in a release.
