News: Hamburger Mary’s Reopening, Summer 2009

I’m so excited! One of my very favorite burger places– Hamburger Mary’s– is reopening. You may remember them being HM for a time, then Universal Grille, which closed a few months ago. It’s reopening at its old location (900 Vine). I know, it’s a chain, […]

Thursdays at the Palace– $60!

Thursdays at the Palace– $60!

Check out Michelle’s blog to see the menu for the Palace’s two-course meal for two for $60 (including wine!). Amazing– I wish I had time to go tomorrow. This is not every Thursday, so check it out while it’s available. It’s a great way to […]

News on Tom’s Pot Pies?

News on Tom’s Pot Pies?

I walked past the Vine street store of Tom’s Pot Pies and noticed it was “closed for reorganization” and pretty much cleaned out. Has anyone heard any more? I love his pies (as I know many of you do) and heard from Veggie Option that […]

Mini-Review: McCauley’s Pub

Mini-Review: McCauley’s Pub

I went out to lunch (a “working lunch”, so no pictures) at a place I’d never tried before– McCauley’s Pub, which is on Fields Ertel (towards Maineville). I’m having a heck of a time finding it listed anywhere– but it’s great! Very hole-in-the wall, with […]

Review: Betta’s Italian Oven

I had way more fun in grad school than I did in undergrad. Is that normal?  I had a great group of friends, and we spent a lot of time commiserating over our placements, classes, and life in general at various places around Xavier’s campus. […]

Have you seen Cincinnati’s own Pastor Ryan?
Review: Knotty Pine on the Bayou

Review: Knotty Pine on the Bayou

One thing Cincinnati isn’t known for: cajun and creole food.  German food we do.  We’ve got a reputation for fine French cuisine.  We even have a vibrant Italian community.  But most New Orleanians and other folks from Louisiana don’t seem to make it up this […]

Reviews: Providence, RI and Chicago

Well, sort of. Business trips are a strange thing.  I often spend most of my time in the hotel, eating whatever is available in the restaurant, because of timing or energy or a combination of the above.  I stayed at the Biltmore in Providence, and […]

Jean-Robert de Cavel to be Chef in Residence at MCI

Jean-Robert de Cavel to be Chef in Residence at MCI

Ah, yes, there were two rumors going around (on Twitter predominantly): A partnership with MCI A restaurant in Northside. Looks like the rumor mill is pretty accurate– well, halfway, anyway. Chef Jean-Robert de Cavel will be the Chef in Residence at the Midwest Culinary Institute. […]

Review: Yagoot

Review: Yagoot

I love Yagoot. It’s tasty, tangy, relatively healthy, and a little lighter in texture than the typical Cincinnati ice cream (Graeter’s, I’m talking to you). I popped in there on Friday, and it turned out to be their first birthday. Yay! They had a cake: […]
