ColumBEST 2022

Aladdin’s has been nominated for two ColumBEST categories in 614 Magazine. We are so grateful to be recognized in these categories, and could not have done it without you, our amazing guests!

ColumBEST is a reader’s poll where residents in and around the capital determine the city’s best places, people, and services. Readers are invited to vote on a multitude of categories, including vegetarian restaurants, happy hour spots, and venues that they love, among many others.

The categories in which we’ve been nominated are the Best Place for a Salad as well as the Best Mediterranean/Middle Eastern Restaurant.

Fun fact: Aladdin’s actually won the Best Mediterranean/Middle Eastern Restaurant award in ColumBEST 2020 and 2021!

Aladdin’s in Columbus

We’ve been calling Columbus home for more than two decades, with our first 614-area restaurant opening in Clintonville in the 90s. We are on our way to opening our fifth Columbus restaurant in New Albany in spring of 2022, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Our friends at 614 Magazine featured our newest restaurant earlier this year — thanks for the love, 614!
