Downtown Columbus

denovo-1016The past few years brought big changes to the downtown area now known as RiverSouth. Now, you can stroll down to the Columbus Commons for all kinds of entertainment. All along the corridor, you see restaurants, apartments and offices take shape that provide a dense, walkable urban core. Wanna get a front row seat? Well, deNovo Bistro relocated to its new digs on Columbus Commons, and two people will get to try it out for free thanks to a $25 gift card.

Restauranteur Yavonne Sarber remains super psyched about her new restaurant, which was previously located across the street from Columbus Commons.

“We have the best spot in Columbus,” Yavonne said. “Even just a year ago, this was a different corner. I love the energy of this area of downtown.”

Yavonne expanded the lunch and dinner options while keeping that bistro feel. She says the key is to offer an inviting and exciting, yet approachable, menu, and she was quick to add that those in a hurry at lunch, can get in and out with no problem. “Our average ticket time at lunch is just 12 minutes.”

More than just lunch, DeNovo offers a great place for breakfast, happy hour, dinner and special events, and with primo seating that opens out onto Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion, you can’t go wrong if you want to catch one of the acts at Columbus Commons.

Sure, summer is gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan your next outing. You still gotta eat, you know, and a little boozy treat makes cooler temps a little more tolerable. And, can you imagine what Columbus Commons holiday display will look like from deNovo? Start in early (and often) when you grab some drinks and dinner. For those who want to plan for a little glam and glitz, deNovo will host a Great Gatsby party on New Years’ Eve. Find out more about that event here.

Back to the here and now, you need to know that the Fall menu launched in early October so if you haven’t been in a while, now’s your chance. Click on through to our Facebook page and tell us what your favorite thing is about Columbus Commons, and you’ll be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to deNovo.
