Unique Restaurant and Menu Choices Had the Charcuterie for 2 and Split the Short Ribs ... Charcuterie per my date was awesome, I didn't care for some of the strong flavors. Short Ribs were awesome. Wonderful casual ambiance. Restaurant was busy, bar area wasn't ... which tells me it's possible to pop in for a drink and/or dinner spur of the moment. More

Thai | Short North - Arena District, Columbus

This was our 1st visit, but it won't be our last. We took advantage of happy hour, $4 small plates, to try a couple different dishes. What a great experience and awesome food. The only hiccup was, the restaurant did not have our reservation........ they said they never got an update from open table. Luckily, it was not busy and was not an issue. More

Discover Short North - Arena District

The Short North - Arena District is abuzz on game nights with hungry visitors on their way to or from watching the Columbus Clippers, the Columbus Blue Jackets or concerts at Nationwide arena. Office workers seeking plenty of flavor walk to the neighborhood restaurants in search freshly prepared vegan and vegetarian dishes along with plenty of seafood. The neighborhood tempts the palate with an array of ethnic cuisine, including Somali and Mexican food. One place to taste a little bit of everything is at the Columbus North Market. Dozens of vendors sell their specialties, and there is a seating area upstairs.
