Columbus contains multitudes—both Wendy’s and White Castle were founded here, but so was the excellent plant-based, fine-dining spot Comune. “I don’t feel like I’m in Columbus,” is a common sentiment heard around the intimate bar and dining room that feels straight out of a Scandinavian design catalog. It’s always a solid choice for date night, and the menu is a pretty big departure from traditionally meat-heavy Midwestern restaurants, instead focusing on seasonal dishes like a summertime watermelon carpaccio and a peach-cucumber salad bathed in green goddess dressing. Luckily for us though, the housemade pita with dips and the perfectly crispy tahdig never leave the menu. They also have a great list of natural wines, along with cocktail options like the effervescent O Sweet Spontaneous with vanilla-infused gin, rhum agricole, pineapple, and bubbly.

Fukuryu Ramen is a great spot in Upper Arlington for a big bowl of something warm after an Ohio State game.
