Review: Via Vite

Review: Via Vite

The theme for this week seems to be “Restaurants where we’ve had small meals at but really want to write up right.” Or maybe we just wanted lots of OpenTable points. My motives are not always altruistic. Terry and I have been to Via Vite […]

What’s your favourite table? Oh, goodness. This is hard. I love the hustle and bustle of Katz’s in NYC; I love this one particular bistro around the corner from Notre Dame on rue St. Michel in Paris (I can’t remember the name, but I’d know […]

Review: Sake Bomb

Review: Sake Bomb

Terry has been doing a show, so it’s been difficult to find time to spend together, much less time to go out and eat. When we realized that Sake Bomb was open late, we realized that we could easily do a late dinner there. This […]

Review: Chalk

Review: Chalk

We’ve all heard mixed reviews about Chalk: spotty service, mediocre food. However, in the interest of my readers, I had to try it out myself. My mom wanted to see Hair at Falcon Theater, so since it was Mother’s Day, we decided to try out […]

Mini Review: Yagoot

Mini Review: Yagoot

Shameless Plug: Hair!

Shameless Plug: Hair!

While you’re in Newport, perhaps checking out La Mexicana or York Street Cafe, check out Falcon Theatre’s production of Hair, which opens tonight. We’re sold out for tomorrow, but all of the other nights still have seats available. The show is great– lots of fun, […]

Review: Arnold’s

Review: Arnold’s

Arnold‘s is Cincinnati’s oldest operating bar, dating back to 1861, back when bier halls ruled the Cincinnati landscape. It’s a cool place– if you squint just a little, you can almost see how it was back in the 1860s, with the original, intricately carved bar […]

Review: Apsara, Blue Ash

Review: Apsara, Blue Ash

5chw4r7z, Mary, Steve, Pablo, Terry and I trekked to Blue Ash for dinner on Friday night as prelude to seeing Ms.5chw4r7z’s show at Tri County Players. After much email haggling, we decided on Apsara, which is in Watson Brothers Brewery’s old location. Terry and I […]
