The local food movement has taken Columbus by storm. Which locally-sourced restaurants are your favorites?



The local (but not lo-cal) movement has hit Columbus by storm, and more chefs than ever are using veggies from a community garden, and meat from the farm next door. This hour of Chefs in the City, we’ll talk to a local chef, and examine why food always tastes better when it’s not flown in from Timbuktu.  Plus we’ll get our critics’ latest picks.


  • Thomas Smith, Chef at Worthington Inn
  • Rich Terapak, Jr- WOSU Food Critic
  • Rich Terapak, Sr- WOSU Food Critic
