Cocktail Hour: Sidecar

Cocktail Hour: Sidecar

I didn’t think I’d like the sidecar.  I don’t like cognac.  I remember stealing sips of my mom’s bottle– in a decanter that cork had fallen into– and thinking it was the most noxious thing ever.  Fast forward, oh, 20 years and in reading about […]

New (sort of) Food Truck: Gold Star Chilimobile

New (sort of) Food Truck: Gold Star Chilimobile

It looks like Gold Star has joined the food truck bandwagon. Their new Chilimobile will premiere at the Q102 Outdoor Concert Series on June 2, and each Wednesday for the rest of the summer. They’ll also be doing “lunch runs” throughout the city. If you […]

Review: Vout

Review: Vout

Vout, as I reported a couple of months ago, is the new concept available during the week for the well-established Slims, which specializes in locally-grown food (grown by owner Patrick McCafferty) with a Latin twist.  Vout takes Slims’ weekend menu, makes it a bit more […]

Soho Sushi now open downtown

Soho Sushi now open downtown

Soho Sushi– a build-your-own-sushi restaurant– is open for lunch downtown, 11-3. They’re located in Tower Place, but they do have a separate, non-mall entrance on 4th Street. They are currently not open for dinner (which means I probably won’t get there anytime soon).

Coupons, coupons…

Coupons, coupons…

I really hate coupons.  I lose them. I forget about them.  I rarely (if ever) use them.  I know, I’m very behind in the whole coupon thing, considering what savings divas my LOL compadres are.  I am, however, totally into the idea of virtual coupons. […]

Cocktail Hour: Sazerac

Cocktail Hour: Sazerac

This post is kind of inspired by my friend and coworker, Vic, who is a displaced New Orleanian. We were in Houston together a few months ago, and had dinner. Houston is filled with displaced New Orleanians, and our excellent waiter was one of them. […]

Cocktail Extra: Equipment
Review: Cafe de Wheels

Review: Cafe de Wheels

Cafe de Wheels is the grandaddy of food trucks here in Cincinnati– it’s probably the best-known and certainly the most established.  They, like yesterday’s Senor Roy’s, use Twitter and Facebook to communicate their locations.  They have a few regular hang-outs: the School for the Creative […]

Review: Senor Roy’s Taco Patrol

Review: Senor Roy’s Taco Patrol

Finally, I’ve managed to catch up with the roving band of trucks serving up all sorts of delicious things around the city. And I do mean around the city– rarely do they venture outside the confines of Clifton, Over-the-Rhine or the Central Business District.  I […]

What do you want to see at Cincinnati’s Restaurant Row?

What do you want to see at Cincinnati’s Restaurant Row?

Have you heard about Cincinnati’s Restaurant Row? This is the area on 6th and Walnut– think the old Oceanaire location, Mr. Sushi– on the ground floor of the 580 Building. The building has several spots open for restaurants (see the artist’s rendering to the left). […]
