Brassica on High Street

I have yet to decide which menu items at Brassica are my favorite, and I don’t know that I ever will. Never been to the new Mediterranean joint? You’re in for a treat. I hate to compare Brassica to Chipotle, because it’s an insult really. But it has the same fast-casual, customizable format as the Mexican chain. It’s a segment in which the Short North was severely lacking, and Brassica fits the bills perfectly.

The menu at Brassica

Everything about this spot screams fresh. The menu itself is small but delicious. You choose a base for your goodies first; select either a salad, pita sandwich, or a hummus plate. Side note: the pita is toasted until warm and puffy in a wood-fired oven, then propped up with a metal ring to allow maximum stuffing – I highly recommend it! Then, pick your primary filler. I am crazy about the falafel, but the tender harissa-marinated brisket is also a stellar option. Other choices are just as mouthwatering: house-cured and peppered lamb bacon, succulent chicken, or all-veggie.

The Choices at Brassica

I’m the first to admit that I skimp on veggies sometimes, but this is a vegetable-lover’s heaven where even carnivores can come aboard. Slather your salad or pita with amazingly creamy hummus or baba ghanoush and a scoop of lentils and rice. Next, go for topping choices like crispy onions, beets, pickled cabbage, or cucumbers for crunch. Or add the spice-packed marinated carrots or cauliflower. On second thought, maybe just throw on everything, it’s so tempting! Top it all off with a sauce like the secret house dressing or tahini to amp up the flavor.

Pita Sandwich from Brassica

There’s an emphasis on local here as well, with Columbus-based brews on tap, such Land-Grant, Zauber, and Seventh Son. Look for Ohio-grown produce and Lucky Penny feta cheese on the menu too. The bottom line: head to Brassica as soon as you can!

Culinary Clue:  The brisket option is often “while supplies last” so hurry in if that’s what you’re craving.
