Founded in 1947 as a poker hall for traveling tycoons, The Clarmont became a steakhouse when it fell out of fashion to use grilled beef slabs as chips. Since then, the Columbus institution has added seafood and fresh fish offerings to its sumptuous menu. The culinary fireworks begin at dinner with the always-goes-fast prime rib of beef ($19.59), seasoned and roasted on-site each day, or The Clarmont's 50-year standby: 12 ounces of filet mignon ($30.99), which you can top with fresh mushrooms ($2.99), drizzle with port demi-glace ($2.95), and side with french-fried onion rings ($4.79/full order), among other things. Beyond the beef, discriminating diners can branch out into lamb osso bucco ($23.99), Long Island duckling in a bing cherry glaze ($21.99), or potato-encrusted salmon in an orange horseradish beurre blanc ($19.99). A wine menu featuring 17 by-the-glass options, such as Italian Al Verdi Pinot Grigio ($5.25), and more than 100 bottle options are available to pair with delectable dishes, as well as lubricate conversation that's been desiccated by too many office anecdotes.
Knives swish through the air behind the sushi bar at Ajisai Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi, slicing red snapper, yellowtail tuna, and other fresh seafood for sashimi platters and elaborate rolls such as the Tuna Dynasty, which combines crisp cucumber with crab tempura, black-pepper tuna, eel, cream cheese, and avocado. Hibachi chefs sear filet mignon, lobster tails, and other proteins on tableside grills, pairing them with sizzling rice and other sides. Natural-wood accents and a hanging chandelier lend the eatery a subdued yet sophisticated ambiance.
Genji’s menu of traditional hibachi-style grill cuisine fires up the senses with a memorable dining experience that focuses on a sizzling grill and skilled chef dazzling diners with knife wielding dexterity. Stop in for lunch or dinner, grab a drink, listen to the fragrant aromas, and savor a helping of Genji sesame chicken ($15.99, dinner menu only), calamari ($5.99), or a N.Y. steak and scallops dinner ($19.99, dinner menu only). All dinners include a Japanese Shoyu soup, Genji salad, shrimp appetizer, vegetables, steamed rice, and tableside entertainment. Gaze at the grill in wonder, or simply watch the culinary flames flicker your pocket-sized scrying pool.
When it opened in 1955, Berwick Manor was a small restaurant getting by on the strength of its Italian-style recipes. Now, that restaurant is at the heart of a banquet hall complete with six banquet rooms, a taproom, a lounge, and an 11,500-square-foot dining room. The expansive hall is a popular spot for corporate events, weddings, and birthdays, and an unpopular spot to eat alone in a giant room.
Diners at the restaurant might order an italian sub or a club sandwich for lunch, or they might feast on chicken parmesan with pasta or housemade gnocchi for dinner. The restaurant also runs a successful catering business, the menu of which includes italian meatloaf, roasted chicken, and barbecued pulled pork.
As they walk through Fusion Steakhouse’s two crimson doors, diners immediately enter a family-friendly scene: a black-granite bar gleams with the violet glow of the uplighting bordering the ceiling, and low leather seats line a wall intermittently set with stone tiles. In this dimly-lit dining room, tight rolls of sushi and sizzling hibachi dishes dominate a menu of Japanese standards, but dinners respect no borders. Diners can also choose from entrees inspired by the cuisine of other Asian countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, as well as cocktails inspired from around the world.
