Will Shilling gets happy with innovative foods

Equal parts entertainment and indulgence, Veritas is the most exciting central Ohio dining option since Rosendale's. Chef and owner Josh Dalton's take on molecular gastronomy keeps you guessing on every course, as no dish is nearly as simple as the menu name implies, and nothing is ever what it seems. The perhaps-long trip to this unassuming space in downtown Delaware is justified by the innovative and decadent food and drink. You'll find it at 15 E. Winter St., Delaware.
