Feast: A-Plus dining

The Refectory Restaurant and Bistro and M have both been awarded a four-diamond restaurant rating for 2011 by the American Automobile Association.  The group gives the four-diamond rating to “restaurants that offer a distinctive fine-dining experience marked by high-quality ingredients, creative presentation and attentive service.”

Only 11 restaurants in Ohio have a four-diamond rating: the Refectory and M are the only two in Columbus. Columbus does not have any five-diamond-rated restaurants, the highest rank AAA gives. Four-diamond ratings account for only about 3 percent of the approximately 28,000 restaurants the group rates annually.
