Upscale, Michelin recommended restaurant abruptly closes after 2.5 years of opening

A restaurant known for their wood-fired pizza, upscale Italian cuisine, and beautiful ambiance has posted a sign on their door that their journey has come to an end.

Sono Wood Fired, which opened in Easton Town Center at 4055 The Strand in August of 2021, posted a sign on their door that reads, “From all of us at Sono Wood Fired, we are humbled and honored to have served and shared our lives with our amazing guests, team members and partners for an amazing 2 ½ years serving the Easton Town Center, Steiner & Associates, and most importantly the Columbus market.”

Their posted sign continues, “It has been an honor being part of the community and getting to know all our great friends and family…Unfortunately, the journey has come to an end. We hope to return to Columbus and serve you again. Until then be well and have a happy and prosperous year.”


The restaurant also has a Public Notice By Order of the Tax Commissioner sign on their window, stating that they’re prohibited from making retail sales on or after January 12th. The tables still have napkins and silverware on them, appearing that this closure may have come as a surprise. Easton Town Center has since taken down Sono as a tenant on their website, and according to Yelp, Sono’s Chicago location has also closed.

Sono Wood Fired was Michelin recommended four times, which means Michelin inspectors found their Italian cuisine to be high quality and above average, but that not enough to receive an actual Michelin star.
