The Rookwood Restaurant {CLOSED}

The Rookwood Restaurant {CLOSED}

UPDATE ~ As of December 2016 the Rookwood is closed.  I’m eager to see what becomes of this unique space!

Ché Argentinian Restaurant

Ché Argentinian Restaurant

Over the Rhine is bursting at the seams with restaurants these days, and there’s just about every different kind of cuisine you can think of.   One of my recent favorites is Ché Argentinian Restaurant on Walnut Street.  Ché is probably most well known for their unique empanadas and gourmet pizza pies.  If you go with friends...

If you live in the Cincinnati area and are looking to dine at an “environmentally conscious” restaurant then you really need to visit the Green Dog Cafe.  They offer organic, locally sourced menu options, including many vegetarian options.  The food here is delicious and served with a fancy flair, but the restaurant itself is laid...

Brunch at BrewRiver GastroPub

I’ve been waiting for a long time to try brunch at BrewRiver GastroPub…ever since I met Chef Michael Shields at an event and experienced the culinary delight of getting to taste his homemade goetta.  It was out of this world.  We’ve been to his restaurant, BrewRiver GastroPub, several times for dinner and we love the...
Sugar n' Spice

Sugar n’ Spice

I love breakfast. So much so that I sometimes wish we lived in the Shire with the Hobbits so that it would be socially acceptable to have second breakfast every day. Lunch is over-rated. I’m all for having two breakfasts a day and then dinner. But I don’t want just any breakfast. I want a...
