My grandmother was an excellent baker, in a very traditional German style, which has made me, I think, a bit particular about my baked goods. In addition, growing up, there were always great bakeries in my neighborhood, where if Grandma didn’t feel like baking, we […]

A Twitter conversation reminded me that I forgot to post about this: Hideaway in Northside is closed. I had done brunch there (as part of the Northside Brunch Tour), and wasn’t impressed– my French toast was undercooked, for example– so when I heard they were […]

I’ve been asked this question several times– what’s up at Slims? Have you read their blog? It looks like they’re still doing their thing– 5:30-when the food is gone, Friday and Saturday, prix fixe. They’ve added a new service, which they call VOUT. They’ll serve […]

According to The Boyfriend, I was a deprived child. I never ate Spaghetti-Os, Chef Boyardee, boxed macaroni and cheese or Manwich.  I didn’t do chicken pot pie, Aunt Jemima pancakes or peanut butter and jelly swirled together in a jar.  I definitely didn’t eat sugary […]

As you may know, Guy Fieri is in town– I’ve known he was coming for a while, since his production company contacted me nearly a year ago.  Television research takes a while!  I gave them a few suggestions, but sadly– no chance to meet the […]

Ah, the revolving door that is L’Auberge. So Romy Jung left last year, and Jared Whalen was named chef on August 15. Now, eight months later, it looks like there’s yet another chef, according to the Dayton Business Journal. David Lease will be taking the […]

Restaurant Week in Dayton just came and went, and I managed to get up there to try one restaurant– Meadow Lark. It’s sandwiched in a strip mall near the Dayton Mall, and easy to miss if you don’t pay attention.  We went on Friday of […]

I complained for the longest time about no sushi available downtown.  Sheesh.  Ask and ye shall receive… in the old Margarita’s spot on 4th street, you’ll soon find Soho Sushi, which, as reported by Ms5chw4r7z, will be opening soon. (Thanks to EM for the tip […]

Does it feel like Friday to you? I’ve been looking forward to Friday– and Friday night– all week. And Friday nights, for me, mean cocktail time! Not to tread on Wine Girl’s domain, but she’s pretty busy with the Wine Festival this weekend, so I […]

Right now, the Taft Museum is featuring the  Dutch Masters– you know, like Rembrandt– and folks you might not be as familiar with in an exhibit called Dutch Utopia.  They’ve been doing some events for the YP community– and they asked me to “host” an […]
