True Food debuts at Easton Town Center's new urban residential district in Columbus.

True Food Kitchen, the healthy dining chain co-founded by Dr. Andrew Weil and co-funded by Oprah Winfrey, opened at Easton Town Center in Columbus this week, its first location in Ohio.

“The restaurant beautifully anchors our newest district alongside merchants like RH Columbus, the Gallery at Easton Town Center, and Forbidden Root botanical brewery,” said Easton’s chief executive Jennifer Peterson. “While the pandemic required a slight delay in the opening of the restaurant, it has proven to be well worth the wait.”

True Food, one of which’s taglines is “Eat More Color,” features a menu that highlights fresh, in-season produce and nutrient-dense ingredients that adhere to the anti-inflammatory diet detailed in several books by Dr. Weil. The restaurant caters to vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free eaters and has become a must-have eatery at new-age, luxury town centers.

As the pandemic wears on, True Food Kitchen offers meals-to-go designed for groups of two, four or six. Carry-out cocktails, too, are an option. The restaurant reconfigured its dining room for social distancing, seating 116 at 27 tables six feet apart. It also has an outdoor patio space.
