Review: Senor Roy’s Taco Patrol

Finally, I’ve managed to catch up with the roving band of trucks serving up all sorts of delicious things around the city. And I do mean around the city– rarely do they venture outside the confines of Clifton, Over-the-Rhine or the Central Business District.  I […]

What do you want to see at Cincinnati’s Restaurant Row?

What do you want to see at Cincinnati’s Restaurant Row?

Have you heard about Cincinnati’s Restaurant Row? This is the area on 6th and Walnut– think the old Oceanaire location, Mr. Sushi– on the ground floor of the 580 Building. The building has several spots open for restaurants (see the artist’s rendering to the left). […]

Cocktail Hour: Cosmopolitan

Cocktail Hour: Cosmopolitan

Cocktail Week Kickoff: The Paloma

Cocktail Week Kickoff: The Paloma

Today starts World Cocktail Week! Who am I to argue about a week of drinking cocktails? I figured that I would break my days-long silence (lesson: never take a vacation day again) with a cocktail. Or two.  Or maybe a week’s worth– and yes, that […]
