Service industry members share where they like to eat and drink around Columbus.
In 2010, Zach Weprin had a vision. With a finance degree from OSU—and no prior food experience—he started Fusian, a small chain of sushi restaurants that now has 10 locations in four Ohio cities. The build-it-yourself sushi enterprise recently revamped its menu, starting with its Grandview location. We asked the Fusian CEO and Short North resident where he eats and drinks around Columbus.
Breakfast: “I like to sneak over to Tasi [Café] in the middle of the week. I usually get the Greek scramble.”
Special Occasion: “Paulie Gee’s is one of my favorite restaurants. I live across the street, and it’s some of the best pizza I’ve ever had.”
Carryout: Pho Asian Noodle House. “It’s always fresh, very convenient and high value. I try everything.”
Dive Bar: “Oddfellows Liquor Bar has a good community. Mikey [Sorboro] has done a great job building a really cool space, both inside and out. There’s always good people and energy there.”
Guilty Pleasure: Skyline Chili. “I lived in Cincinnati and my roots are intense. Sometimes you can’t say no.”
