Noodles & Company

1390 W. 5th Ave. Columbus OH 43212 (614) 487-8253
This eclectic restaurant, founded by a former brand manager for Pepsi, has successfully brought some of the most recognizable noodle and pasta dishes from around the world together on one menu.  Asian, Mediterranean and American culinary traditions inspire most of the offerings, which are prepared fresh daily using specially selected ingredients from around the world.  During our visit, we tried a TRIO Meal ($6.95) that included Penne Rosa (spinach, mushrooms and penne pasta sautéed in a spicy tomato cream and topped with feta) Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breast and a Caesar Side Salad.  For an in-and-out restaurant, Noodles’ really puts out some super-consistent, super-tasty fare. Check ‘em out.  They’re no joke.
