Columbus' commitment to safety
The Columbus community has been able to safety reopen amidst the COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring proper health and safety protocols are in place, including a citywide mask mandate. Currently, a statewide curfew is in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday, Dec. 10 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The Franklin County stay-at-home advisory, in effect until Dec. 18, asks citizens not to leave their residences or travel outside of Ohio unless it is absolutely necessary.

Local Dining

The capital city’s incredible food scene features top-ranked chefs, a rich farm-to-table movement, one-of-a-kind restaurants, and creative artisan desserts, beers, wines, and spirits. Columbus has consistently gained national recognition for its food scene in recent years and offers more than 100 restaurants in walking distance in the heart of downtown, with local options ranging from fast-casual to fine-dining and everything in between.

The Short North Arts District has a slew of restaurants to choose from. Duck into Columbus’ beloved Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams; grab a bite to eat at The Guild House or The Pearl, and quench your thirst with craft coffee from One Line Coffee or cocktails at Denmark. Head south of downtown to German Village for a sausage and cream puff from the historic Schmidt's or visit Katzinger's for a New York-style deli experience. Feast your eyes on a rainbow assortment of macarons at French patisserie Pistacia Vera, whose coffee is roasted especially by a local roaster Café Brioso. The patio at Lindey's is not to be missed during the summer months.

Don't leave without a visit to The North Market, Columbus’ historic public market since 1876, featuring fresh and prepared foods, authentic ethnic cuisine, flowers, wine and beer, unique gifts, and cookware. During the growing season, stop by The North Market for a bustling farmer’s market featuring more than 20 farmers each Saturday.
