In Beantown!

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 […]

Montgomery Inn’s anniversary– and cheap ribs!

(Grr, instead of editing I deleted.  Sorry about that!) OK, so it’s not really barbecue, but they’re tasty in their own way. I explain to non-Cincinnatians that Montgomery Inn ribs aren’t barbecue. They’re not smoky. They’re boiled, then grilled, then sauced. Who cares, they’re still […]

Recipe: Boeuf Bourguignon, a la Anthony Bourdain

When I started this blog a year ago, one of the very first meals I made and semi-photographed was beef bourgignon.  Freshly arrived from France, I wanted to make some food similar to what we had there.  This hit the spot, and is great for […]
