Honeybaked Fire Roasted Bacon

Honeybaked Fire Roasted Bacon

A quick post– Stopped by biggs on the way to a road trip, and the Honeybaked Ham kiosk had samples of locally made fire roasted bacon. Wow. They take the ham coating and spices and put it on thick-cut bacon. I don’t even really like […]

Review:  Keystone Bar and Grill

Review: Keystone Bar and Grill

I used to live in Covington, back when Scalea’s was around. I loved the deli area (the guy who always worked in the deli now works in the bakery area of Greenup Cafe, he’s great), and always got a sandwich involving rare roast beef, cheddar […]

Hamburger Mary’s reopening TONIGHT

Best of wine me, dine me: Julie’s favorite eats (in Cincinnati)

Best of wine me, dine me: Julie’s favorite eats (in Cincinnati)

“Best” is such a subjective word. I prefer “favorite.” “Best” is for more objective things, like “Best Runner in the World” (you can, at least, time that!). I’ll be different — other publications do “Best of”– so here is my list of Cincinnati favorites, in […]

DC Mini-Reviews

DC Mini-Reviews

I’m staying at the Gaylord National Harbor, which is kind of a cool space– though totally geared towards convention travelers. A few places I’ve tried: Ketchup: Interesting concept (flavored ketchups), really bad execution. It’s a chain restaurant that has been touted on the Food Network, […]
