Restaurant Week Starts Today

It’s that time of year– the spring edition of Restaurant Week. This event is so much bigger than years past– it’s hard to make a decision when there are so many great restaurants (and only a week to enjoy the great deals). It doesn’t matter where you live– there are restaurants downtown, in the suburbs, as far north as Mason and West Chester and as far south as Crestview Hills. Check out Eat Local Cincy for specific restaurants and menus.

Shannan asked where I’d go– so I told her three places:

Brown Dog Cafe– always interesting and fun, the candied baby beets and deconstructed beef Wellington look particularly interesting.  I ate there last restaurant week and had a fabulous meal.

York Street Cafe– one of the most underrated, fun, and delicious restaurants in the city.  They have several of my favorite dishes of theirs on the menu (including their stellar Amish Chicken) and several new things as well.

Daveed’s– always a great value during Restaurant Week; that soup-of-the-moment (shiitake+marsala+crème fraiche) sounds fabulous.  Their menu will change during the week.
