Guide: Columbus’ best classic cocktails

Which fruits do you (and don’t you) muddle in an old-fashioned? How do you temper the brandy in a sidecar? Just how much absinthe goes into a Sazerac? If you’ve ever marveled at the history surrounding tried-and-true cocktails, you’re not alone. We tapped some of the most studious bartenders across Columbus to get to the bottom of these questions and the secrets that elevate a classic from memorable to unforgettable.

Fried chicken: Pick your style

Used to be only a few games in town offered authentic, flavor-packed bites of crispy fried chicken. Now, you don’t have to travel to the other side of the Mason-Dixon Line for a fix. Here’s where to satisfy whatever style you’re craving.

Breakfast: Great coffee and pastry pairings

It’s mid-morning. Breakfast is a distant memory, and lunch is still hours away. It’s time to hit the nearby coffee shop for caffeine and a snack. Here’s where to find a little local nourishment around town.

Guide: The city’s best ethnic bakeries

Columbus’ ethnic diversity is mirrored in its bakeries with immigrants kneading and rolling out the flavors of home.

Charcuterie: Chefs share their craft

In the belly of The Table, Donte Allen is in his zone. His eyes and shoulders are relaxed, and his knife hand dips in and out of a slab of chicken sausage with gentle, rhythmic fluidity.

Guide: The city’s best African eateries

In the world of the culinary curious, there is a continent’s worth of food traditions that stand apart—a final frontier of dining that, for many routine consumers of sushi and pho, dosas and arepas, still seems a bit far out. It’s a cuisine too hard to find an entry point into, too obscure to get a handle on.
