What makes Columbus great? The chef-run restaurants, the locally brewed beers (and locally distilled vodkas!), the ice cream flavors, the dive bars, the independently owned shops, the Short North galleries. Best of Columbus is our celebration all of those things and of the people who love them. Once a year, we give our readers the chance to tell us what they love most about Columbus. Voting was open from December through February at columbusalive.com, and we tallied all 16,966 votes in 75 categories to determine your very favorite places to eat, drink, dance and shop.
