Veritas

11 W Gay St, Columbus
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Veritas has been one of the city’s top dining experiences for the last 10 years, and after taking a pandemic break to regroup, reopened with new energy. The dining room, decorated with hanging herbs and flowers from the ceiling, looks into a glass-walled kitchen. Meanwhile, the multi-course dinners celebrate ingredients and dishes from specific countries and regions like Spain and Scandinavia. Compared to what you’d pay in larger cities, the $85-per-person tasting menus here are a steal, and even though the service is more on the formal side, the staff still creates a breezy, easy-going atmosphere. Save time for a nightcap at Veritas’ sister cocktail bar, The Citizens Trust, located just upstairs in an old bank building.
