Christ Hospital + Chefs = Heart Healthy Food.

I like to eat well. I also would like to lose a few pounds. Yeah, I know, I should be writing a blog about marathons, not food, right? Wrong!

Christ Hospital has teamed up with 12 pilot restaurants to analyze their menus and put the Christ Hospital Tower next to menu items to denote that they’re heart healthy. Each entree has fewer than:

  • 650 calories
  • 20 grams of fat
  • 7 grams of saturated fat
  • 800 mg of sodium
  • 100 mg of cholesterol

These are consistent with American Heart Association guidelines.

Right now there are 12 restaurants in the pilot, and the pilot covers various price points and cuisines:

Aladdin’s Eatery
Brown Dog Cafe and Catering
Cafe Bella
Chalk Food and Wine
Cincinnati Sports Club Deli
JeanRo Bistro
Lavomatic Cafe
Local 127
Mac’s Pizza Pub
The Polo Grille
The Summit
World Food Bar
