Dine Originals Columbus Unveils New Wednesday Originals Program

Dine Originals Columbus

Dine Originals Columbus has unveiled an exciting new program. Wednesday Originals will allow each of Central Ohio’s 48 Dine Originals restaurants to create a unique, special dining experience on the first Wednesday of every month. The new program will replace Dine Originals (Restaurant) Week, and allow special offerings monthly rather than just twice a year.

Each restaurant will personalize their Wednesday Originals experience.  Some, like Z Cucina in Grandview, will continue to offer a special three-course fixed price dinner; Z Cucina will offer a different three-course dinner each month, for just $30. In Clintonville, Mozart’s will offer a three-course Austrian-themed dinner for $20, with dishes varying from month to month.

G Michaels in German Village will offer 10 wine tastes and 10 appetizers for just $19 (send me in, Coach!).  Skillet in German Village will offer a Southern style “meat and three” (meat and three sides) dinner, served family-style.

Shaw’s in Lancaster will offer wines at state minimum retail.  Ella in New Albany, patrons can sample five wines for $10 before settling on a bottle at state minimum retails; meanwhile, Ella will feature “Vino & Vinyl,” where their certified sommelier will spin tunes on a vintage turntable!

In general, the format will remain the same each month at each restaurant, but the specific menu items, drinks, and themes will change from month to month.

Wednesday Originals kicks off on June 4, with summer events on July 2 and August 6
