Where does Donatos CEO Tom Krouse eat when he's not eating at, well, Donatos?

  • For the latest installment of our Best Day Ever series and a nod to our weekly Columbites food column we checked in with the man behind the franchise that brought Columbus style pizza to the masses.

🪕 Music to start your day: You cannot listen to bluegrass music and be unhappy. I particularly love Billy Strings and David Grier.

  • WCBE 90.5 always plays great music in the mornings too!

🍳 Breakfast: Oat milk cappuccino at The Roosevelt Coffeehouse.

  • If I'm going out for brunch, Northstar is the best! The mushroom frittata is so good.

🧘 Morning activity: Yoga class followed by daily workout at the Athletic Club of Columbus.

🥗 Lunch: Salmon salad at Lindey's.

🦅 Afternoon activity: Go for a hike at Highbanks Metro Park and hopefully catch some bald eagles at the bluff lookout there.

🥩 Dinner: Aside from Donatos, I would go with my beautiful wife to the Top Steak House and order a filet mignon and oysters on the half shell.

🎸 Evening activity: See live music at one of over 50 venues in Columbus.
