Want to support local restaurants? Curious about new openings or secret discoveries? Here are five restaurants that I suggest you try this month!
1. Weenie Wonder
Brought to you by the same team behind PINS and 16-Bit, Weenie Wonder has just opened its second location, this one in Easton. The retro hot dog restaurant offers classic and creative hot dogs, tater tots, fries, mac and cheese and shakes. Both locations are attached to the arcades, so you can start with a fun dinner and then migrate to go bowling or enjoy games and drinks.
4117 Worth St.
Columbus, Ohio 43219

2. Myungrang hot dog
Apparently I’m on a hot dog kick for April! Maybe it’s just me anticipating warmer weather. Myungrang debuted nearly a year ago, bringing the Korean-style hot dog trend to Columbus. They take hot dogs, sausages or cheese, then beat them, fry them and serve them on a stick. They’re coated in things like diced potatoes or sugar, and served with a selection of sauces.

3. Columbus Brewing Company
CBC’s new Beer Hall is a beautiful renovation of one of the buildings in the Historic Trolley District, just off the East Market. Tile floors, brick walls, large bars and patios are the perfect backdrop for enjoying 24 CBC draft beers, cocktails and a menu that includes everything from Belgian fries and poutine to wings, salads, pizzas , sandwiches, etc.

4. Si Señor Peruvian Sandwiches
Si Señor is a long-time discovery but often still under the radar. I miss their downtown location, but they’re going strong on Fifth Avenue these days. Their big feature is the sandwiches, with over a dozen options on the menu. Personal favorites include the Chicharron Peruano with pork shoulder, pickled red onions and sweet potato mayonnaise, and the Jumping Beef with sliced beef, sautéed onions and tomatoes, manchego and avocado mayo.

5. Korean BBQ KPOT & Hot Pot
KPOT is a national chain that has just moved into Columbus, setting up shop at the Bethel Center (which is a hub of great international restaurants like Meshikou and New India). The bustling and bustling restaurant is best experienced in groups. You can order the barbecue or hot pot experience — or both — and servers bring out plates of meats, vegetables, and noodles for you to cook yourself.
