🎖️ Columbus’ not-so-hidden gem

A Columbus steakhouse was ranked a cut above the competition in a new rankings list from OpenTable + People Magazine.

With stained glass windows + velvet walls, Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse was named the most beautiful restaurant in Ohio by the two publications. According to the study, editors from both outlets worked together to compile and compare restaurants from across the country.

“More is more at the Columbus outpost of the glitzy, family-owned steakhouse, via stained-glass domes, tufted velvet walls, and more,” reads the short blurb.

Jeff Ruby’s has been a Columbus staple since 1981. It’s located at 89 E. Nationwide Blvd., plus has locations in other cities like Cincinnati.

The Wrap

From the editor
I think I’m going to enter to race in the Run Wild 5K at the Zoo. It’s on my 30th birthday, so it will be a good challenge to start a new decade. Plus, it gives me an excuse to go shoe shopping at Fleet Feet in Upper Arlington.
