Asterisk is a throwback tribute to when times were slower and when friends and neighbors would gather around the supper table. When you walk in you will immediately feel as though you are stepping back in time… to a very sophisticated establishment in a very cool moment in time. Throughout the years of prohibition, Westerville, Ohio was known for being the “Dry Capital of the World.” In 1859, Westerville became one of the first American cities to prohibit the sale of alcohol. In 1913 the Anti-Saloon League of America, headquartered in Westerville, held a convention in Columbus, Ohio to campaign against the consumption of alcohol. With the support of John D. Rockefeller, and others like him, the League succeeded in drafting and implementing the 18th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, establishing prohibition. Megan Ada (Owner) wanted to find a way to pull beauty from this rich history. Megan’s, along with her mother’s, Laurie Ada, interior design talents, goal was to create a unique atmosphere that our guests would never forget.
Absolutely DELICIOUS! The vegan gnocchi was out of this world, and the burger was perfectly cooked with the most delectable truffle fries. Coupled with the creative, inimitable ambience (and a couple of their specialty cocktails), it’s a fantastic spot for a quick bite, a full meal, or just drinks with friends. Can’t say enough about this gem in Westerville!
This place is awesome! I went for a high tea with some friends to celebrate my birthday and had a blast! The decorations are nice and the staff was knowledgeable about the teas. The price was reasonable. We stayed for 2 hours and had several pots of tea in addition to our sandwiches and sweets! Definitely will have to go back!
Everything was amazing. Every time we go there it is amazing. Possibly the most consistently excellent place I have ver visited. The peppermint chocolate tea dessert was so good. Highly recommend it.
Probably one of the coolest places I've been to eat. The atmosphere is unique, the food is original and so appealing and the drinks are almost magical! The wait staff are so friendly and helpful of it's your first time. Bonus for their creativity with having the menus in books!
We have a passion for cooking. Love is the secret ingredient that makes all our meals taste better and magical. From the delicious food to wonderful cocktails, at Asterisk Supper Club we guarantee to satisfy all of your taste buds.
