Columbus has a lot to offer the carnivore, and not just in the form of its juicy burgers and famous sausages. On our Meat Lover’s Tour, we’ll encounter one of the most creative chefs in the city using farm fresh cuts and innovative preparations, a pair of international cuisines displaying novel uses for a wide range of proteins, and a smokehouse with a long history of preparing European-style smoked and cured meats. This event is (self evidently?) far from vegetarian friendly and is a delicious overview of some of the most delicious carnivorous delights to be found in the city!
Our stops usually include:
– Thurn’s – A behind the scenes look at this hundred plus year old business in which an astounding variety of meats and sausages are cured and smoked according to traditional European and family recipes.
– Don Pocha – A hands on experience at one of the newest Korean restaurants in town specializing in traditional Korean style barbecued meats grilled right at your table.
– Apna Bazaar/Tandoori Grill – This unassuming Pakistani market hides an exceptional restaurant kitchen where we will see, first hand, how they use the art of tandoor cooking to prepare delectably moist and tender kebabs.
– The Refectory – One of Columbus’ premier restaurants where Chef Richard Blondin is known for his use of game meats and his preparations.
The tour starts at 6pm and is $76. The tour is offered once a month on a Thursday night (except for July, August and December). Please check the calendar for available dates. If you would like to be wait listed for a tour date that is sold out please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Was looking for something different to do during a visit near Columbus. Found the Meat Lovers tour online and couldn’t wait to sign up! Interesting going from a butcher at the start to a French restaurant at the last stop. Enjoyed the variation of it, and Andy was a great guide. I left my recommendations of places to visit with my family that lives in the area. Definitely would do another tour when back in town!
