What to do on a Tuesday Night: Head to the Mercantile!

What to do on a Tuesday Night: Head to the Mercantile!

I’m currently reading The United States of Arugula: The Sun Dried, Cold Pressed, Dark Roasted, Extra Virgin Story of the American Food Revolution, which is about the most interesting book I’ve read in a while– how we changed from a meat and potatoes (and, starting […]

Review: Legal Seafoods, Boston MA

Review: Legal Seafoods, Boston MA

I love to travel. I’m really looking forward to some opportunities to travel more (upcoming trips: Orlando, possibly Pittsburgh or Nashville, Chicago, Miami…) and finding new places to eat. When I told Michelle that I was heading to Boston, she immediately told me, “LEGAL SEAFOODS.  […]

Review: Tucker’s

Review: Tucker’s

Tucker’s, I think, is one of the best kept secrets in Cincinnati. If you drove past it, on Vine—not in the re-invented Gateway Quarter, but in a less redeveloped area of Vine Street—you’d think it was a total dive. Its outside is unpretentious, even run-down […]

Pigall’s Last Day

Pigall’s Last Day

I walked through the kitchen of Pigall’s for both the first and last time today. I’ve eaten there before– when it first opened– and had eaten at the Maisonette when I was in high school. I was unable, due to a breakneck schedule, to work […]

I’m in Boston for the next couple of days, so posting may be a bit light. I’ve already had some fantastic chowder for lunch (at Jacob Wirth) and nearly died to see the fresh oysters on ice at the airport of all places (Legal Seafood […]

Review: Drinks and Apps at Pub at Rookwood Mews

Sometimes, you don’t want a meal.  Sometimes you just want to hang out with friends, good drinks, and some appetizers.  The Pub at Rookwood Mews, owned by the same group that owns deSha’s and Nicholson’s, is a great spot for just hanging out and munching […]

wine me, dine me’s super hip oscar party.

I, like the ladies over at westside foodie wannabes, am having an oscar party at home. So exciting– takeout sushi, Miller Lite, and if we don’t fall asleep, maybe some Carr’s ginger-lemon cookies for dessert. And who am I rooting for? (And I so called […]
