Another dining option is open in Columbus 

A new restaurant is now open in Columbus in the V-Go gas station just off the I-26 exit.  

Co-owners Michael Boothe and Jonathon Morado opened Krossroads Kitchen in October 2020.

Boothe and Morado call their restaurant an “up-scale sandwich shop.” Krossroads Kitchen is versatile in many different cuisines.  

For those who have an event that needs catering, they offer a unique upscale catering service as well. 

Booth and Morado have been chefs for many years, traveling around the country to cook.

Booth specializes in seafood cuisine having been born to parents who owned a seafood restaurant, and his background lies in restaurants and country clubs. He lived in South Florida for more than twenty years and has worked with many famous chefs such as Robbin Haas, Dominick Laduia and Patrick Fagan. He also has had the opportunity to cook meals for presidents, princes and a lot of South Florida’s most elite.

Morado is a self-taught cook, learning at a young age how to cook for his sister while his parents worked. He attended culinary school for a year but soon realized that studying at home and experimenting in the kitchen at Stetson University was more beneficial. He has worked with top chefs such as Allen Spivey, Maurice Couturier, Omar Muniz and Tim McCummings. As a line cook at Stetson University, he was often sent off campus to cater private events. He has experience working in fine-dining restaurants, large events, and banquet kitchens.

Booth and Morado chose to open Krossroads Kitchen due to the loss of their catering opportunities due to the pandemic shutdown.
