Review: The Bistro

Review: The Bistro

I’ve kind of been avoiding the Bistro for a while. Maybe it’s because the last time I ate there, it was disappointing– this was January of last year, right before the big Jean-Robert de Cavel and Martin Wade throwdown.  I’d heard rumors of quality degrading […]

An Open Letter to Via Vite (or, Review: Via Vite’s Sunday Brunch)

An Open Letter to Via Vite (or, Review: Via Vite’s Sunday Brunch)

Dear Chef Pietoso and the staff of Via Vite: A group of my friends and I attempt to have brunch every other month.  We’ve managed to do it, oh, annually.  We looked for a brunch spot downtown, initially inclined towards Nada (which was closed for […]

Random thoughts about being carless in Cincinnati

Random thoughts about being carless in Cincinnati

Sorry, folks, we’re going to dive a tiny bit away from food for just a post today, but you still might find this interesting (trust me, food will be involved). Cincinnati is a car town.  Most folks have one, and a lot of us would […]

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) Julie has been nagging asking me all summer to do a review of Wicked-wich, the sandwich shop that opened a few months back on Sycamore, between 4th and 5th Streets.   Wicked-wich gears itself almost exclusively toward downtown’s workday breakfast and […]

Review:  Mr Sushi

Review: Mr Sushi

Cincinnati’s Restaurant Row is very slowly taking shape. The first restaurant to open a few months ago was Mr Sushi, in the space next to the former Oceanaire, and future Bartinis.  It’s unassuming on the outside, and a bit elegant and modern on the inside– […]

Downtown Restaurant Week

Downtown Restaurant Week

A reminder from Michelle, who also wrote about this today. Downtown Restaurant Week is August 10-16. I will, naturally, be out of town the entire time. Sigh. But my loss is your gain– many downtown restaurants will be doing a prix fixe dinner for $35; […]

Review: Palomino Euro Bistro

Review: Palomino Euro Bistro

I love getting stuff in the mail.  I tend to shop via the internet because I just love packages or really anything that isn’t a bill in my mailbox.  I get a lot of junk mail, too, but every once in a while I’ll find […]

Review: First Watch

Review: First Watch
