“We have a saying here in Columbus that if it’s not for all, then it’s not for us…Mitchell Hall will certainly be for all and it is certainly for Columbus.”

Cameron Mitchell owns a series of restaurants around the city of Columbus. Based on my experiences, I am comfortable calling the man brilliant. His restaurants are hip, creative, and delicious! I would go as far to say that I’ve never had a meal I didn’t enjoy.

Marcella’s spaghetti and meatball dish is a can’t-miss. They call the giant veal meatball the eighth wonder of the world.

The Pork Osso Buco was a perfectly cooked pork shank, literally falling off the bone into a moat of polenta covered in gremolata, brussel shavings and carrots. It was the epitome of Italian comfort food and reminded me of a hearty homemade pot roast.

This pizza is worth breaking every New Year’s resolution you’ve ever made.

I personally believe that The Avenue has the best Porterhouse steak in the city. If you’ve never had a Porterhouse steak, you should prepare yourself for what is likely the largest piece of meat you’ve ever been served. Traditionally, the porterhouse is cut thicker and has much more of the tenderloin left in. The Avenue is no exception.

If you’re looking for upscale dining, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which started in Columbus, are always a good option. From The Avenue Steak Tavern, an all-occasion steakhouse in Grandview Heights, to The Pearl, a restaurant, tavern and oyster room serving made-from-scratch comfort food in the Short North Arts District.

“You know they can deliver on seafood here. The chilled crabmeat cocktail comes in an elegant coupe that billows dry-ice mist, swirling around half a dozen pristine hunks of crabmeat you might deign to anoint with a Louis sauce. But Ocean Prime takes the second word in its name just as seriously, with steaks that come out on hot oval plates after a salubrious stint at 1,200 degrees.”
