Constantly evolving menus draw from the best practices in American, European and Asian kitchens, resulting in dinners that delight the palate as well as the intellect and the wanderlust muscle. The wine list is robust, holding its own against the exciting entrees coming out of the kitchen. The atmosphere is similarly dramatic, with high ceilings and finely tuned lighting.

This little eatery/drinkery specializes in taking the old and spicing it up with a dash of the new. It's housed in a positively ancient space, and it's decked out in dark tones and weird old kitsch. But its energy is very modern, thanks in part to the kitchen. The blueprint is classic pub fare, but diners are given some interesting options like subbing eggplant fries for french fries as a side next to your hearty tuna sandwich. The drinks menu is the same story: lots of classics with unique little twists and catchy Columbus-centric names (Route 40 Shorty, anyone? Or maybe a Jungle Jack Hanna). See website for menus, blog, merch and sister-retsaurant info.
Gordon Biersch took off at the height of the microbrewery craze. First launched in California, this high-end chain found a fine formula and stuck to it. By combining craftbrewed German-style lagers with a tempting menu of slightly scaled-up pub grub, the place built a large following. Today, it's a trusted name, and you can find outposts across the United States. The Columbus branch is located in the heart of the Arena District, so it's always full of people and activity. See website for menus, beer details and locations nationwide.
