Columbus Alive's Best of Columbus 2021
Also included: Columbus Alive's Worst of Columbus 2021
Every year, we give our readers a chance to vote for their favorite places to eat, drink, shop and take in the thriving Columbus music and arts scenes. And every year our readers vote for El Vaquero, the Thurman Burger and anything Northstar.
So over the past couple of years we've tried shaking up the nominations, aiming for a more curated list that might distinguish our poll from the countless Best of Columbus contests pushed out by every publication in the city.
To round out the 2021 readers' poll, we also profiled some of the folks we've witnessed doing essential work across the city this last year, in addition to striving for balance with our annual Worst of Columbus picks.
Here is our Best of Columbus 2021.
