Little by little, they’re opening… I love Hyde Park Square– it’s easily in my top five favorite spots in the city. As a little girl, my great aunts lived in A’Laise and took me for ice cream, waved to the firefighters, let me press my […]

Food trucks are great, but what do you do with them in the winter?

Food trucks are great, but what do you do with them in the winter?

I’m definitely a fan of food trucks– what’s not to like about good food served just about anywhere? With the new ordinances in Cincinnati, food trucks are only going to multiply, since they have some guaranteed places to sell their wares. But, I’m sure you’ve […]

Tony Bourdain at the Aronoff:  94 F-Bombs and Counting

Tony Bourdain at the Aronoff: 94 F-Bombs and Counting

“Tonight is a bad night to eat out in Cincinnati.” What an accurate opening line for Anthony Bourdain’s show at the Aronoff last night.  Just walking in, I saw several prominent local chefs, wine experts, spirits experts, food writers, food bloggers and just plain old […]

Mini-Review: Grateful Grahams

Mini-Review: Grateful Grahams

I love my neighborhood. Longtime readers probably know that (and I probably drone on abut how much it rocks a little too often). It’s so convenient for me, like I did a few weeks ago, to come home after, say, Yoga and run a couple […]

Taste of the NFL 2010 (and when will Jean-Robert open his Table?)

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) Nobody really wants to wish his/her life away.  But the Cincinnati Bengals’ Taste of the NFL 2010: Where Food and Football Reign, had a way of making football fans want to see the next couple of pages torn off the […]

Review:  Washington Platform

Review: Washington Platform

I can’t tell you how many times I have driven or walked past Washington Platform.  I’ve known about the place since I was a kid, when I would page through the Entertainment Book (do they still make physical books, or are they all online?) and […]

Review: Stone Creek Dining Company

Review: Stone Creek Dining Company

Yes, occasionally, the Boyfriend and I head out to the suburbs. I have a fondness for Olde Montgomery. It’s walkable, has great restaurants and shops, and has been continuously improving itself over the past few years. I had heard from several people that Stone Creek […]

Cocktail Hour: The Martinez and the Martini

Cocktail Hour: The Martinez and the Martini

The Martini might be one of the most contentious drinks behind the bar.  When you order a Martini in a bar, generally what you get is gin, up, shaken (not stirred), with an olive or two.  If vermouth is used, it’s used incredibly sparingly. I’m […]

Review: Buona Vita Pizza

Review: Buona Vita Pizza

Goodness, do I have a backlog of reviews. You’ll see quite a few starting today, but the first is a great, out-of-the-way find that I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I did. My trek to this restaurant has a bit of a story. A […]
