Want to support local restaurants? Curious about new openings or unknown finds? Here are five restaurants I suggest you try this month!
1. Sushi factory
Located on a side street south of Polaris, the family-run Sushi Factory has quickly become one of our sushi favorites. The service is always friendly and although the extensive menu takes some time to navigate, we haven’t had a bad bite. Just for fun, get one of the sushi towers!
8715 Sancus Blvd.
Columbus, OH 43240

2. Tapatia Square
This west side Mexican supermarket, bakery and restaurant moved to a great new location last year. It’s great for grocery shopping, picking up sweets like candy and popsicles, grabbing coffee, and sampling ready-to-eat or take-out foods: chilaquiles, tons of ceviches, fresh salsas, tamales, you name it. Don’t miss the bakery aisle!
255 Georgesville Rd.
Columbus, OH 43228

This chain, which originated in Jacksonville, Florida, just opened its first Ohio location outside of Polaris. The menu is full of creative interpretations of Southern comfort food: waffles, chicken tenders, biscuit sandwiches drenched in sausage gravy.
