Want to support local restaurants? Curious about new openings or unknown finds? Here are five restaurants I suggest you try this month!
1. Weenie Wonder
Brought to you by the same team behind PINS and 16-Bit, Weenie Wonder just opened its second location, this one in Easton. The retro hot dog joint features classic and creative hot dogs, tater tots, fries, mac and cheese and shakes. Both locations are attached to the galleries, so you can start with a fun dinner and then migrate to go bowling or enjoy games and drinks.
4117 Worth St.
Columbus, OH 43219

2. Myungrang Hotdog
Apparently I’m on a hot dog kick for April! Maybe it’s just me anticipating warmer weather. Myungrang debuted nearly a year ago, bringing the Korean-style hot dog trend to Columbus. They take hot dogs, sausages or cheese, then batter them, fry them and serve them on a stick. They are coated in things like diced potato or sugar and served with a choice of sauces.
850 N. High St.
Columbus, OH 43215

3. Columbus Brewing Company
CBC’s new Beer Hall is a beautiful renovation of one of the historic Trolley District buildings, right next to Eastern Market. Tile floors, brick walls, large bars and patios are the perfect backdrop to enjoy 24 CBC beers on tap, cocktails and a menu that includes everything from Belgian fries and poutine to wings, salads, pizzas, sandwiches and more.

4. Si Senyor Peruvian Sandwiches
Si Señor is a long-standing but often still unknown find. I miss their downtown location, but they’re making a splash on Fifth Avenue these days. Its great feature is the sandwiches, with more than a dozen options on the menu. Personal favorites include the Chicharron Peruano with pork shoulder, pickled red onion and sweet potato mayo, and the Jumping Beef with sliced beef, sauteed onion and tomato, mancheco and avocado mayo.

5. KPOT Korean BBQ and Hot Pot
KPOT is a national chain that just put down its first roots in Columbus and set up shop in the Bethel Center (which is a hub for international food greats like Meshikou and New India). The busy, crowded restaurant is best experienced as a group. You can order the barbecue or hot pot experience, or both, and servers bring out plates of meat, vegetables, and noodles for you to cook on your own.
