Nominated for: BEST Barbecue
All great dreams have their defining moment. For City Barbecue, it started with a bottle of barbecue sauce at a Christmas party. That's when visionary Rick Malir's fantasy of running his own restaurant materialized. Rick, you see, had been itching to leave the management world of John Deere Company for several years to run his own business. City Barbeque's commitment to quality barbecue has already paid off. The restaurant was named one of the city's Top 10 Casual Restaurants for 2000 by The Columbus Dispatch. Local WTVN Radio called it the Number One New Restaurant in Columbus. And this year, Columbus Monthly placed City Barbecue on its Top Ten New Restaurants List.
