There’s nothing like a home cooked meal — especially when home is Columbus.

And, you don’t have to take our word for it. Just ask Essence Magazine, a modern publication dedicated to Black women. It recently released its top foodie destinations to visit in 2024, and CBUS made the cut.

“Don’t laugh. Columbus has gastronomical game,” wrote Sheryl Nance-Nash, author of the Essence article. “Take it from me, you’ll be impressed with what’s cooking in Columbus.”

Sheryl also gave shoutouts. She tipped her cap to Chef BJ Lieberman and Hiraeth + Chef Sadaya “Daisy” Lewis and Modern Southern Table in Budd Dairy Food Hall.

This isn’t a small feat, either. Other cities on this list include Paris, Barcelona, and Mexico City.
