Here are seven spots serving mushroom-based dishes, none of which will require time spent wandering the woods to enjoy

Our cover story this week focuses on local foragers, which got us thinking about the Columbus businesses that grow and sell mushrooms, or serve them up in everything from pizzas and burgers to curry dishes.

Pierogi Mountain at Wunderbar
739 S. Third St., German Village
At its new location with Wunderbar in German Village, Pierogi Mountain has expanded its menu to include a collection of entrees and sides. On the menu you'll find a vegan mushroom stroganoff, made from a rich shiitake and onion gravy served over kopytka noodles. The stroganoff also makes an appearance in the Hungarian poutine, ladled over french fries with shredded Colby Jack cheese. Find it on the new weekend brunch menu topping a griddled biscuit, too.

Harvest Pizzeria
Clintonville, Bexley and Dublin
Amongst creative offerings like the Spicy Yuma and the Ohio Double Bacon, Harvest Pizzeria features a mushroom pizza on its menu. It's created using a gouda and havarti cheese blend, truffles, herbs and a variety of mushrooms sourced from Athens County, Ohio.

Ringside Cafe
19 N. Pearl St., Downtown
Considered one of the city's longest-running establishments, the Ringside Cafe features burgers named after famous boxers. On the Welterweight menu, the portobello mushroom burger features a grilled, herb-marinated portobello mushroom topped with provolone, roasted red peppers and a roasted garlic aioli on a rosemary focaccia bun.

936 N. Fourth St., Italian Village
GoreMade's pizzas are crisped up in a wood-fired pizza oven. The Clintonvillain pie features roasted mushrooms, smoked salt, truffle oil and grated cheese on an olive oil crust.

Tiger Mushroom Farms
Tiger Mushroom Farms started in 2015 as a Cub Scout project for Te'Lario Watkins II and has since grown to a full family business. You'll find this shroom purveyor selling homegrown shiitake and oyster mushrooms, as well as soup and seasoning mixes, at the Worthington and Westgate farmers markets. The family harvest also makes appearances in a variety of Columbus-area restaurant dishes.
