Brunch in Columbus, OH

My wife and I will be visiting our 20 year old son and would like to take him and his girl friend for a nice Sunday brunch. What do the local hounds suggest? We are not looking for a buffet, but rather a nice menu.

  1. While I have not been there myself a lot of people like Cap City Fine Diner. They have 2 locations depending on which area you are closer to. I know you said that you are not necessarily interested in a buffet but I thought I would mention the jazz brunch at Polaris Grill as I think it is one of the best I have had in Ohio, and my parents and I are trying out new places all the time.

    Polaris Grill
    1930 Polaris Pkwy, Columbus, OH 43240

    Cap City Fine Diner and Bar: Gahanna
    1301 StoneRidge Drive, Gahanna, OH 43230

      I should mention that we will be in the OSU area but can drive anywhere.

    2. I love Spagio in Grandview. Sunday brunch is great, and you can sit outside if the weather is nice. The food is always good with a good variety of breakfast-like and more lunch-style items. Plus, Grandview is really cute to walk around after you eat. http://www.spagio.com/spagio/index.html

      1. Zencha Tea Salon has a great and unique brunch and is close to campus. Spagio is a good choice as well..

        1. I haven't had the opportunity to go yet myself, but local foodies swear by the Sunday brunch at Sage American Bistro. Here's the menu: http://www.sageamericanbistro.com/bru...

          It's also conveniently located on High Street a couple of miles north of campus. It's on the part of High Street that has a lot of construction going on but there's parking around back.

            I second Sage Bistro, I'd go there every weekend if i could........

          2. Salvi's has a good brunch. lots of desserts and Pasta Salvi, which makes it worth the trip (deep fried pasta alfredo - hard to imagine, insanely delicious to eat) - it's out on the West side, off I-70 and Hilliard-rome Road. Also, Anna's Greek Restaurant on Sawmill has an outstanding Sunday brunch!

              I have eaten at Salvi's myself about a month or so back and while I found most of their stuff to be delicious, jeez that pot roas was amazing and those eclairs were to die for, I found the pasta Salvi to be a little dissapointing. All I got was the marinara flavor that came with it. Did I maybe just get a bad batch?
