Adriatico’s Pizza is a tried and true classic for Ohio State University students. Located in the heart of the University District, just off the OSU campus, Adriatico’s offers extravagant New York style pizzas in sizes ranging from personal to ‘Buckeye’ (18 x 24 inches). Entering into its fourth decade of business, Adriatico’s has its pizza down to an art, using fresh, quality ingredients that elevate this pizza far above typical student fare. For the more health conscious, the pizzeria also offers salads and pasta dishes. The atmosphere is very casual, and the dining room is small, but Adriatico’s is the perfect stop for a true taste of local culture on the go.

Haiku Restaurant is a gem of the Short North neighborhood. With its by-line of ‘poetic food and art’, Haiku is truly unique. One of the best restaurants in Columbus for sushi, the restaurant boasts an open ‘exhibition’ kitchen so that dinner is the show. Customers can dine at the sushi bar, with a front-row view of the culinary action, or in the spacious dining room designed according to the principles of feng shui. The Asian Pacific cuisine is accompanied by the works of local artists on the walls and live jazz and guitar music two nights a week. Patrons are also encouraged to write their own haikus and hang them in the dining area.
