ORIGINS FOOD TOUR!
After months of gathering reviews and doing the hard work of bending my elbow and stuffing my face, I present you with the Origins Food Tour! This map will guide you to a select list of some of my (and my friends’) favorite restaurants, bars, cafes, and sweet shops in Columbus!

Here is the legend to help find your way around:
Stars (Blue or White) = Travis’ Top Picks (If you can get to these places, do so!)
Knife & Fork = Restaurants
Dollar Bill = Upscale (Expect entrees in the $22-40 range, and many have sandwiches in the $10-$15 range.)
Martini Glass = Bars
Coffee Mug = Cafes
Green Marker = Vegetarian/Vegan (Indicates either primarily veg or a good selection.)
White Diamond = Sweets
Red Triangle = Avoid this place!
I concentrated on stuff that’s within a ~20 minute walk. There a few places that are a 10-20 minute drive, both because they shouldn’t be missed and because – believe it or not – some folks like to get away from the convention center.
I tried to include upscale places, because I know people sometimes have business dinners or nice dates with their SOs at Origins.
I added the places to avoid, because some of them look appealing when you walk by, but for one reason or another they just aren’t worth the trouble.
I included a bunch of bars, because a) Columbus has lots of bars (many of whicih also serve food) and b) lots of people like to get their drink on at Origins.
If anything is unclear, not showing up properly, or needs adjusting, just let me know!
If you find a place that you think should be added, please let me know!
PLEASE RESHARE WIDELY!
OK Now I’m excited.
Hey y’all! I updated the maps, which should now include websites! I also added Mikey’s Late Night Slice, which is a pretty sweet pizza joint several blocks north of the convention center that’s open till 3-4 AM.
