Kitchen Little
A combination of a meat shop and an American restaurant, Columbus' Kitchen Little in Short North received five stars from If you like southern food, then this is the place for you. Comfort food reigns supreme with macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and buttermilk fried chicken gracing the menu but it is the chicken and waffles with real maple syrup that really has diners raving. Kitchen Little goes out of their way to use only locally sourced ingredients and they keep the fare simple but perfectly put together. If you are feeling excessively indulgent, try out the duck fat fries. People claim they are worth every calorie. Another standout is the cassoulet, which is bursting with flavor but is not too heavy or greasy.

Foodie Cart
It may surprise some that a food stand on North High Street would take the second top spot on all eateries in the Columbus area according to, but Foodie Cart in downtown does just that. As some diners have claimed, this food cart 'has heart'. Diners rave about nearly everything served up but it is the crepes, such as the lemon pork belly crepe, egg n brie crepe and steak and egg crepe that have people waiting in lines to get a taste of the Foodie Cart. This adorable little cart often has lines up to 45 minutes long but that is because everything is cooked to order. Nightly, the menu at this Columbus restaurant changes but do not be discouraged, it will always be fantastic.

Kihachi Japanese Restaurant
Kihachi Japanese Restaurant in Northwest is the best place to find Asian fare in Columbus says diners on This eatery isn't your common American Japanese steakhouse or sushi spot; instead it has authentic tatami rooms and serves up small, elegant plates. To really enjoy Kihachi, come with an adventurous nature; the menu is handwritten and half in English and half in Japanese. Somewhat surprising, the main focus at Kihachi are the appetizers but do not let this distract you from the great entrees. Plan to eat in slow courses and share all the goodness with the whole table. Highlights at Kihachi include the soft shell crab, pork cheeks, duck with mustard and blue prawns with black lava sea salt.

Clever Crow Pizza
When craving a slice of pizza, Clever Crow Pizza in the University District is the go to restaurant in Columbus. Diners consistently rave that they would readily and openly eat any and everything put out from the kitchen of Clever Crow. This pizzeria opened in 2009 by husband and wife Gary Robinette and Brooke Howell. They began their love affair with food by making pizzas at home together based off of Gary's experience working at a pizza shop. This love expanded into a business and they decided to create a pizzeria that served both piping hot slices and take and bake pies. The crust at Clever Crow is a California crust but it's the ingredient list that will catch diners by surprise with everything from roasted purple potatoes and house pickled spicy red peppers to local Ezzo salami and spicy Italian sausage gracing the menu.
