Re-Review: Nicola’s

Sometimes The Boyfriend and I get into dining ruts. Our Friday nights go something like this: “What are you thinking, dinner-wise?” “I don’t know, what do you want?” “I don’t know, what do YOU want?” We go ’round and ’round until we end up at […]

New website for Lavomatic

New website for Lavomatic

As reported on the Cincinnati Blog, Lavo has a new (pretty spiffy looking) website. I’ve been there since the shakeup, and still enjoy the time I’ve spent there.  I really like the people who work there, and Chef David does a pretty good job putting […]

Review: Oriental Wok

Review: Oriental Wok

Yes, dear readers, I ventured deep into Kentucky for this one. Oriental Wok is a restaurant that many, many friends have recommended. They have three locations, two in Kentucky and one that just opened in Hyde Park. I ended up at the Buttermilk Pike location, […]

Cincinnati Restaurant Week

Cincinnati Restaurant Week

Restaurant Week has started– and, to be honest? I’m barely even tempted to go. Last year, we had such mediocre experiences– and we frequent a lot of the GCI restaurants, and do NOT have mediocre experiences– that if we go, it will be merely coincidental. […]

Sigh.

Sigh.

My Google blogroll isn’t working for some reason– am doing some troubleshooting, but I may have to switch to something else. Grr! Lots and lots of posts coming… soon! ETA: Ah. It’s a Google issue.  Man, they’re not doing so well with the uptime lately, […]

Shock and Foie

Shock and Foie

Check out this fantastic manifesto on sustainability and organ meat and how a diet– that includes foie gras, seriously– fulfills the pattern of creation and destruction inherent in how the Earth works.  It’s written by the chef of Incanto in SF, Chris Cosentino.  Incredibly well-thought […]
