Lavomatic to open in February (hopefully)

Lavomatic to open in February (hopefully)

I’m hoping this blog doesn’t sound like an ad for Jean-Robert’s restaurants, but I can’t help that he’s constantly opening and reinventing his restaurants. This one particularly excites me, as it’s in my neighborhood of Over the Rhine. The Business Courier reports that Lavomatic is […]

Kroger recycling plastic bags!

Kroger recycling plastic bags!

Reminded by both The Kitchen and The Foodie Report , I noticed last night at Hyde Park Kroger that they had cans out to recycle plastic bags: grocery bags, drycleaning bags, produce bags. Whole Foods, who owns Wild Oats is pledging to go plastic bag […]

Review: Terry’s Turf Club

There are few things that are more satisfying to me than a burger and fries. I love a good, high-end meal, but sometimes you just want a juicy burger and crispy fries, and nothing else will do. A burger and fries also seems like an […]

The Iron Horse Inn

The Iron Horse Inn

I’m sad to report that the Iron Horse Inn has closed in Glendale. It was home to some fabulous wine dinners (so I hear, I never had the chance to attend one) and great food. Hopefully something new, but in keeping with the flavor of […]

Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food will be at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Commons on Saturday, 1/12 at 1 PM. They expect a big turnout, so line letters are recommended if you want an autograph. I might just go […]
