Review: Izzy’s

Izzy’s Originally uploaded by winemedineme Since it’s the holidays, which is a sentimental time for most of us (what do people want more around the holidays than comfort food?), I thought I’d review a couple of my “old favorite” places. These places aren’t fancy, but […]

News: Seny closed (!), Mokka moves

News: Seny closed (!), Mokka moves

The sign on the outside of Seny says that they’re closed for the time being for “reinvention”.  Apparently, they want things to be higher-end?  Are tapas and molecular gastronomy (both pretty widespread concepts outside of Cincinnati) just a little too avant garde for this town?  […]

Recipe: Olive-Eggplant Spread

Recipe: Olive-Eggplant Spread

Our friend Drew had a “High End” party this past weekend. The concept: everyone brings a “high end” appetizer. No cocktail sausages in barbecue sauce, no Velveeta-based queso dip. We were to try to be homemade if we could. The turnout was great and the […]

Falcon’s new Christmas show, It’s A Wonderful Life, opens tonight at the Monmouth Theater in Newport.  The entire concept is the 40s– from the moment you step in and throughout the show.  I’m hoping to read a few reviews for the show sometime soon, but […]

wine me, dine me in Soapbox!

A warm welcome to people who found me via the article in this week’s Soapbox Cincinnati article on shopping and eating locally.  Dining and shopping locally is a passion of mine– I may not be a locavore (Sorry Val!) but I think small businesses are […]

Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: An Orphan’s Thanksgiving

My friends are my family. I don’t have a lot of family; neither does Terry.  His is in Alabama; mine is here, but we’re not close.  Since Thanksgiving is Terry’s favorite holiday, last year, we decided to have my mom over for dinner.  Then we […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Big things happening here at Chez wine me, dine me.  Terry and I are preparing for a big meal involving a lot of people you just might know– you’ll have to stay tuned tomorrow for a big post about it. For now, lots of food […]
