Graeter’s vs. Aglamesis: Food Wars

So cool! A few months ago, Graeter’s and Aglamesis went head to head on Food Feud with Michael Symon (a Cleveland native, so I’m guessing he’s at least heard of Graeter’s…). Graeter’s put together this video that’s a bit of a teaser for the episode. […]

Keegan’s Seafood– Groupon

Keegan’s Seafood– Groupon

Keegan’s is one of the best-kept secrets in Cincinnati. Though many of us think about buying fish from Jungle Jim’s or Findlay Market, there’s a great place in Anderson to do so as well, and I know a lot of chefs who purchase their seafood […]

Friday Five: Places to buy Wine (and spirits!) for the Holidays

One of the easiest, and most appreciated, gifts around the holidays is a gift of wine or spirits. Whether it’s for your boss, your mother-in-law, or as a hostess gift, wine and spirits are a great gift. First, they’re something that can be consumed, so […]

Mini-Review: Banana Leaf

I’m going to call this a mini-review because I had lunch here with a coworker and we both got the same thing, so not really a big, comprehensive review, but a review all the same. Do you remember Chokolat Morel? I actually went to a […]

Friday Five: Hot Drinks for Cold Nights

Friday Five: Hot Drinks for Cold Nights

Wow. It’s COLD. Last week we had a hint of warmth, then since Thanksgiving, it’s been bitterly cold. Since we’re misers and don’t want to pay the huge heating bills related to keeping our house a toasty 72, we drink a lot of hot beverages. […]
