The great guys at the Mercantile Library asked me to do a guest post for their awesome literary/culture blog, Stacked. I, of course, wrote about food.  Head over there to see what I’ve been reading.

I sat down last Friday with Josh Campbell from Mayberry, and he had a few tidbits about the new Mayberry Foodstuffs store on Main Street. I asked Campbell why he wanted to open a grocery store downtown. As a resident, I know it’s a need, […]

Through the Garden is a classic Blue Ash restaurant, that’s been either around the corner or somewhat near at least three of the jobs I’ve had in the past ten years, but I’ve never actually gone there for lunch. I’ve had their catering before, which […]

Can you believe in 2.5 years of wine me, dine me I’ve never written about Zip’s? Burgers in Cincinnati are a divisive issue.  The classic rivalry is between Zip’s fans and Quatman’s fans, with Terry’s Turf Club entering the fray as a relative newcomer.  Quatman’s […]
