Best Freestyle Food: Cafe Bella

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

You'll see tables, chairs and other familiar touches upon wandering into this cozy Italian restaurant on North High Street. You just won't see menus. Instead of following a printed slate, owner Vince Withers negotiates meals based on what he's got on hand and what dishes a diner enjoys. It's a quirky method that ensures customers are getting some of the freshest, most unique food in town.

An added perk is that most ingredients come from local farms or the mind-blowing garden Withers maintains out back.
