What’s on Your Plate: New dishes to try now

Jack McLaughlin

Summer is here, and that means a lot of new food from great places, and we’re ready for it all. We’ve put together a list of some of our new favorite dishes, and while we can’t include everything we’re excited about, this sure looks like a good place to start.

Here’s what’s on your plate.


Yellow Brick Pizza, The Tiny Panther

Yellow Brick is at it again with more of their new Tiger Style pizza, a pie that’s part Detroit-style and part Sicilian, with square slices that still maintain a light, fluffy dough. The Tiny Panther combines provolone, cheddar, bacon, ham, and Italian sausage with a drizzle of yellow mustard—yes, yellow mustard—to round things out. And you know what they say: Eat square or be square.

Eden Burger, The Chick’N Caesar

It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re vegan, if you like food and live in Columbus, this one should be on your radar. The new menu item from Eden Burger converts everyone’s favorite salad into a simple but inventive “Chik’N” sandwich, featuring a fried patty topped with caesar dressing, fresh tomato, and lettuce. It’s only available this week, though, so don’t wait around.

1808 American Bistro, Spring Toast

For a lighter—but no less tasty—option, we’ve opted to feature the new Spring Toast from  Delaware’s 1808 American Bistro. Looking almost as good as tastes, this one piles spring onion cream cheese, sugar snap peas, pickled shallots, watermelon radish, puffed grains, and dill on a savory slice of toasted sourdough bread, for a culinary experience the restaurant describes as “a literal skip through the garden on a sunny day.” 

Punk Pigs, Smoking Pope

While you might know this Old North eatery for just its speciality—really good grilled cheese—don’t sleep on their more traditional sandwich game. This one takes a tried and true favorite in the chicken salad sandwich, but adds their own twist by smoking the meat. The punk-rock-themed spot gets bonus points for cleverly staying on brand with this one as well, naming it for Chicago pop-punk outfit The Smoking Popes.

The Guild House, Joyce Farms Chicken

This Cameron Mitchell mainstay recently rolled out their new summer menu, which means you should be excited. While it’s hard to pick just one, this featured dinner entree serves up Ohio-sourced chicken alongside cornbread croutons, seared greens, pickled watermelon salsa, and a gooseberry BBQ sauce.

Chocolate Cafe, Extreme Buckeye Sundae

Sometimes a dessert will catch our eye due to it being unique or unconventional. Sometimes, though, the dish we end up featuring just looks really, really good. This is the case with the new indulgent sundae from Chocolate Cafe. Nobody’s reinventing the wheel, but this dish delivers loads of rich chocolate ice cream, hot fudge, peanut butter sauce, and real buckeye pieces.
