Jean-Robert’s new restaurant…

…will be in Northside! WLWT reports that a bistro concept will open in Northside soon, apparently in the old American Can Company (thanks to @geekjames for filling me in– I’m traveling this week and pretty far away from local news!). So what do you think […]

Review: Molly Malone’s

Review: Molly Malone’s

I used to love the Dubliner.  Great food, great atmosphere, great beer list and general good time.  I was sad when, a few years ago, they closed.  I had the same reaction to Jack Quinn’s closing in Covington. I liked both restaurants because they reflected […]

Mini-Review: Shadeau Breads

Mini-Review: Shadeau Breads

I might have the best boyfriend in the world. On Saturday mornings, when our calendars are both scheduled, Terry will run over to Shadeau Breads and pick up breakfast while I’m still asleep.  I wake up to coffee and croissants– it’s like we’re in Paris, […]

Closing: The Phoenix

Closing: The Phoenix

According to a Twitter source (I love Twitter), The Phoenix is now closed for business. Very sad– I went there with my prom date Junior year of high school. It was originally a Jewish men’s club (as the social clubs in the city did not […]

Mini-Review: Tucker’s

Mini-Review: Tucker’s

It’s not a huge secret that I seem to be at Tucker’s every Sunday morning.  Terry still always gets the shrimp and grits, but I’ve experimented a bit.  My favorite so far? Well, besides the shrimp and grits, that is.  Fresh fruit, delicious brioche, butter– […]
