The group from Wario’s Beef & Pork, that sandwich-slinging darling that opened within the Enviornment District in late 2020, has opened their second location in Clintonville!
The brand new Wario’s Clintonville takes its place within the plaza that’s already crammed with Columbus culinary heavy-hitters: Jeni’s, Sizzling Rooster Takeover, Northstar Cafe, Kirin Noodle Bar, Gallo’s.
The lengthy, slim house was beforehand dwelling to The Pit BBQ Grille. It options an ordering counter on the again, a middle desk with stools, and two rows of cubicles. I like the old-fashioned look to all of it: wood-paneled partitions, block glass accents, hard-backed sales space seats, branded Coke serviette holders.
Heading up the culinary group at Wario’s are cooks Stephan Madias and Tyler Minnis. The duo are additionally a part of Goood Pals sandwich joint inside Jackie O’s downtown (the place they simply began serving brunch!).
A lot of the standard suspects are again, minus the hen cutlet however with the addition of the Rooster a la Vodka and the Rooster Caesar.
Again are the spuds, too, plus – consider it or not – a caesar salad and a pasta salad – and a dessert!
The middle menu highlights the schedule of specials all through the week.
We ordered up the spuds, that are smashed down and crispy and aromatic with parmesan and herbs.
They arrive with the Wario’s sauce, which has a caramelized onion base.
On the unique menu, the Chilly Reduce is considered one of my favorites. It’s generously layered with meats and cheeses, plus a great deal of crispy shaved onion, iceberg, and home giardiniera.
New to the menu is the Rooster a la Vodka, layering in crispy hen with a home vodka sauce, pesto, burrata, crispy pepperonis, and parmesan.
All the sandwiches are served on semolina sticks made in Columbus by Matija Breads.
There’s a pickup shelf for anybody ordering on-line or over-the-phone.
