The Columbia Restaurant in St. Augustine brings the timeless tradition of fine Spanish cuisine to the nation's oldest city. Nestled on historic St. George Street, the Columbia's St. Augustine location boasts an architecture and menu that reflect the city's Spanish roots.The award-winning cuisine is set in an atmosphere of beautifully Spanish designed rooms, such as the indoor patio dining room. The restaurant's tapas, such as the scallops "Casimiro" are colossal fresh scallops baked in clay casserole with butter and topped with seasoned breadcrumbs and white wine; the dish is fantastic. In addition, Columbia's signature salad, the Original "1905" Salad, is mixed tableside with gems of julienne of bake ham, olives, cheeses and a special garlic recipe. And, for entrees, the Paella Campesina is a luscious combination of Valencia rice with tender bits of beef, pork chicken and chorizo.
