Ah, Friday night. For once, I actually had an idea of where I wanted to go for dinner– normally, it’s a dance of, “I don’t know, where do you want to go?” over a drink at a bar before we actually go somewhere. Last night, […]

Rusty Bucket is an Ohio-based chain of “corner taverns” that specialize in pub food. It opened its first Cincinnati location at Rookwood… well, yesterday! Terry decided he wanted to go there for dinner last night, and we figured it had been open for a bit– […]

I have to admit that Nicholson’s is an old favorite of mine. I went there for the first time when I was working for a venture capital firm here in town. It was my first week, and they were celebrating one of the partners’ birthdays. […]

Jeff over at PermaSmirk sang the praises of no-knead bread ever since Mark Bittman talked about it in the New York Times last November. I made a loaf of it– it looked good, it smelled good, but it tasted sort of flat. I searched around […]

So it’s not a restaurant, shoot me. 🙂 I love sushi. For me, it’s become take-out on par with Chinese food in the little paper containers: comfortable, somehow elegant (I always thought it was grown-up to eat with chopsticks out of a paper container. I […]

A warning: I am not a food photographer. I would really like to learn to be better, and I did just buy a (non-DSLR) new camera, but I know that these are not Gourmet magazine pretty. However, I’m learning and I hope you’ll take that […]

I popped by Twist on Valentine’s Day, before I cooked dinner for Terry. A couple of friends from a former job were meeting there, and since I’d never been to Twist, I was eager to go. You can see some great pictures from the same […]

I’d seen advertisements for this restaurant— the food looked good on TV (though on TV, just about anything can be made to look good), and I’m always up for trying something new. On Saturday evening, we decided to get a reservation somewhere, but since it […]

So what is everyone doing (or not doing) for Valentine’s? In an earlier post, I revealed that I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s day– it’s over commercialized and too high-pressure. Me, I’d rather have a guy who treats me well every day of the […]
