Experience Columbus Official Visitors Guide The Gourmet Way

When hungry Columbus residents want a swanky dining experience, they head to M, located on the riverfront downtown in the luxe Miranova high-rise. The glitzy crown jewel in local restaurateur Cameron Mitchell's empire of eateries, M features stunning views of the downtown skyline, stylish decor and, of course, great food. Signature offerings here include an apple salad with wild greens, manchego cheese, pecans and maple vinaigrette; a scallop appetizer served with truffle potatoes and roasted garlic jus; and a halibut entree accompanied by lobster ravioli, asparagus and sweet corn emulsion. While undeniably elegant, M doesn't take itself too seriously, as evidenced by two of its most popular desserts: and old-fashioned root beer float featuring root beer granita; and coffee and donuts, a combination of apple fritters and "half cold" coffee.
