From pickle tots to arancini, Yelp names must-try Columbus appetizers

Jack McLaughlin

Let’s be real, for many us, appetizers are far more than just a way to jump-start your appetite before digging into an entree. For many of us–myself including–oftentimes they’re the most anticipated part of a lunch or dinner, if not the main course.

Yesterday, the restaurant review mega-platform Yelp released a list highlighting 10 must-try Columbus eateries if you’re really into appetizers like the rest of us.

Like many of Yelp’s regional collections, its Columbus appetizer rundown doesn’t discuss the specific metrics that were used to create the list, although each eatery featured has at least four stars and more than 200 total reviews (some have over 1,000, however).


You can read the list fro yourself here, or check it out below. If Yelp includes a specific dish in their description of each eatery, we’ve included it next to teh restaurant’s name.

Lemon Grass Fusion Bistro, Sushi, Dumpling
SŌW Plated, chicken sliders, fingerling potatoes
The Walrus 
Lincoln Social Rooftop
VASO, European tapas
Forno Kitchen + Bar, arancini
Sidebar Columbus, empanadas
Fireproof Restaurant, tapas
Atlas Tavern, pickle tots
101 Beer Kitchen, pretzels with cheese
