wine me, dine me: Tasty Tuesdays: Mary Jane Brownies

I’m a sucker for a good brownie. I like mine to be chewy, not cakey and have a minimum of nuts. My favorite brownies are Sugar Daddy’s in Columbus– one of my favorite hotels up there is fortunately (or unfortunately, for my waistline) across the street from their shop, and their Brownie Biscotti, made from [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Tasty Tuesdays: Mary Jane Brownies

wine me, dine me: Livin’ in the Cin: Outdoor Dining at Virgil’s

Outdoor dining: it’s fabulous in the spring and fall months, and every once in a while, we in Ohio get some great opportunities in the summer, too. Most of the time, outdoor dining is on the sidewalk, on a roof, or overlooking a river, but there are some neat, hidden patios that have views of [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Livin’ in the Cin: Outdoor Dining at Virgil’s

wine me, dine me: Preview: Holtman’s Donuts & Salazar

Taste of NFL was on Wednesday, and one of my favorite things about it is often, restaurants preview dishes before they open, giving lucky attendees a little taste of what’s to come. This year, Holtman’s Donut Shop and Salazar were the two previews. Holtman’s, which will open “soon” at 13th and Vine, featured glazed and [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Preview: Holtman’s Donuts & Salazar

wine me, dine me: Review: Kaze

It’s been interesting watching the progression of the Gateway Quarter north on Vine.  When I moved to the Gateway Quarter (a whole two blocks from where I was off Main) there were two restaurants , only a couple of stores, and you didn’t want to go north of Venice on Vine or Suder’s. Now, with [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Review: Kaze

wine me, dine me: Review: Barrio Tequileria

Northside is the epicenter of the Cincinnati Tacosphere. Fact. You have Tacocracy, the hard-to-pronounce, anti-establishment taco joint, that fills their tacos with potatoes and very un-taco-like fillings, surrounded by old airplane doodads in an old goth bar. Then, you have Django Western Taco, with its cowboy flair, serving either individual or family-style tacos and a [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Review: Barrio Tequileria

wine me, dine me: Home Cooks: Theresa Nguyen

I’ve been quiet for a little while. Work, life– things happen. I’d been intending to post all week, but between Boston, Waco, and a few other things– well, I decided I needed to write about something really positive. I love the things home cooks do and share around the city.  I can name a dozen [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Home Cooks: Theresa Nguyen

Each Note Secure: [Drunk Music Reviews] SXSW Travelogue: Part I

Drunk Music Reviews is exactly what it sounds like: Caitlin Behle reviews shows while progressively getting drunker, while illustrator John Sebastian turns the drunken reviews, which could be ridiculous, sloppy or just plain insulting, into a comic.

Hoperatives: Malt Liquor Monday: Colt 45

A funny thing happened to me a few weeks ago.  I was on my way home after a long night of auditioning chimpanzees for the title role in my new street play, “Puddin and the Primate’s Revenge: Episode One of the Organ Grinder of Darkness Saga” and realized I needed a beer to cap off [...]Malt Liquor Monday: Colt 45 is a post from: Hoperatives.

wine me, dine me: Bites: Escargot at La Poste

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that escargot exist only to be vehicles for garlic and butter.* Don’t try to argue with me there. If escargot weren’t traditionally soaked in garlic butter, green with parsley, Bourgogne style, would most people eat them? Thought so. I had my first escargot encounter on my first trip to [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Bites: Escargot at La Poste

wine me, dine me: Review: Anchor OTR

I am starting to get confused. People are talking about the Anchor– and, you know, people have been talking about the Anchor for years, except they were talking about the greasy spoon in Covington, and not the hip, straight-from-Brooklyn eatery in Over-the-Rhine. Now, instead of hearing about griddled goetta and eggs-over-easy, I’m hearing about lobster [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Review: Anchor OTR

Bella Luna has been a stalwart of the restaurant scene in Cincinnati for a while– they’re known for a few things, most notably bread pudding and short rib cannoli, both of which won awards at Taste of Cincinnati a couple of years ago.  When Alfio Gulisano, the Argentine-bred Italian chef announced he’d be leaving Bella [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Review: Alfio’s Buon Cibo

Really interesting list here– there are some notable omissions (in my opinion): 1) Jean-Robert Table (French) 2) Bakersfield (Mexican) 3) Orchids at Palm Court (American) 4) Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse (Steak) 5) Nicola’s (Italian) 6) Tony’s (Seafood/Steak) 7) Abigail Street (Mediterranean) 8) Jeff Ruby’s Precinct (Steak) 9) Jag’s Steak & Seafood (Seafood/Steak) 10) Morton’s (Steak) I [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Zagat’s Top Ten

Sorry, folks, that I’ve been MIA– new job and responsibilities are taking up a ton of time, and I’ve been on the road (I’m currently in Denver).  There are, however, some amazing events coming up that revolve around food that I’d like you to know about: The Golden Lawnchair, based on a post by my [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: November Events

wine me, dine me: Review: Goodfellas and Wiseguys

I love it when my friends disagree. One friend invited me out to drinks and suggested Wiseguys for their craft cocktails. “But don’t try the pizza downstairs. It’s really terrible. 3:1 cheese/crust ratio. Just bad.” Another friend, upon me mentioning I was going to Wiseguys said, “The pizza downstairs is so good!

Brew….riiiiver…. Yes, I get that very cliched Breakfast at Tiffany‘s song stuck in my head when I hear the name of the newest brewpub around town, Brew River, located in the former Maribelle’s location on Riverside Drive which, along with Eastern Avenue, is really becoming a destination for some really delicious food: Eli’s, Terry’s Turf Club, [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Review: Brew River Gastropub

wine me, dine me: Review: Jimmy G’s

Cincinnati is known for steaks– well, after people get past chili and Graeter’s, they remember that there are steaks.  Most people thank Jeff Ruby for that– and they’d be right.  Part of that success was also due to Jimmy Gibson, Ruby’s long-time executive chef. I would be remiss, however, if I didn’t note that he [...] . . . → Read More: wine me, dine me: Review: Jimmy G’s
