Review: Redmoor

Review: Redmoor

I love my buddy Ron. He’s pretty awesome. He’s possibly the coolest cat I know.  He’s a gentleman in the truest sense– sharp suits, shows deference to the ladies, impeccable taste in music.  Throw a fedora on him, and you might think he was in […]

Pigall’s to reopen as Twist

Pigall’s to reopen as Twist

The new restaurant will be called.. Twist Lounge and Restaurant. I guess they’re going to tear down a wall (!) and unite the two? I’ll be interested to see how this plays out. Polly reports that: the Co-executive chefs will be Mark Bodenstein, who was […]

Barbecue…must have barbecue…
New look!

New look!

So, you’ve probably seen the new layout… but now the piece de resistance: a new logo! What do you think? It’s by the gorgeous, talented Toni Bloom (who really needs a website), who really went above and beyond in helping me create a logo that […]

New website for Lavomatic

New website for Lavomatic

As reported on the Cincinnati Blog, Lavo has a new (pretty spiffy looking) website. I’ve been there since the shakeup, and still enjoy the time I’ve spent there.  I really like the people who work there, and Chef David does a pretty good job putting […]

Review: Oriental Wok

Review: Oriental Wok

Yes, dear readers, I ventured deep into Kentucky for this one. Oriental Wok is a restaurant that many, many friends have recommended. They have three locations, two in Kentucky and one that just opened in Hyde Park. I ended up at the Buttermilk Pike location, […]

Mini-review: Fatburger

Mini-review: Fatburger

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) Julie doesn’t normally review chain restaurants here on wine me, dine me.   But this is a general guideline,  not a hard-and-fast rule.   She does make exceptions for local chains, small chains, and chains that are just moving into the Cincinnati […]
