Review: Oceanaire

Review: Oceanaire

Through the power of social networking, I got an invitation to the soft opening of Oceanaire , at Fifth and Walnut downtown. It’s been on the verge of being open for months– I’ve walked by and seen the bar, for example, looking like all it […]

Review: Mr. Pig’s Rib Tips

Review: Mr. Pig’s Rib Tips

Best food to follow a breakfast at Findlay Market (of liege waffles, of course)? Mr. Pig’s Rib Tips! Yeah, it didn’t make much sense to me either, but Terry got a whiff of the rib tips smoking and couldn’t resist. I ended up with a […]

Mini review: Taste of Cincinnati, Part Two

The Horse, was, of course, fabulous. I had more crepes. A bite of the lemon and lavender sugar variety– yum!– and another caramel fleur de sel. Heaven.Mythos Gyros: Awesome. Better tzatziki than Sebastian’s, and surprisingly good tomatoes considering the time of year. I’ll have to […]

Mini-Review: Red

Mini-Review: Red

Terry and I went to Red last night, since he wanted to try the regular menu and not the tasting menu. Plus, as an added bonus, OpenTable offered 1000 points for going at 9 PM. Awesome. I did not take pictures because, frankly, the lighting […]

Cincy Chic: Italian

Cincy Chic: Italian

Last night’s Cincy Chic featured Italian food: Celery Barquettes with Gorgonzola and Walnuts, Caprissi (er, caprese?) palmiers, and Mediterranean spinach salad with vinaigrette and almond Florentine cookies filled with ice cream and chocolate. Now, a warning: if you are a pretty advanced foodie, you’re probably […]

Review: Daybreak

On Saturday, Steve, Mary, Abby, Tony (the newlyweds), Terry and I met up at Daybreak in Hyde Park before seeing Terry’s show in Lebanon. We had originally planned to do breakfast or brunch at The Golden Lamb, but their hours are really weird: breakfast is […]
