Wunderbar (Profile)

Some kind of wunderful

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 10, 2012
When stepping foot inside Wunderbar, the new German-themed Covington restaurant and watering hole, be prepared for the Wurst. Their German sausages are the cornerstone for the four-month-old eatery: wholesome, authentic and in most cases house-made, freshly ground from locally sourced meats and free of fillers.  

Crave (Review)

New Banks eatery has something for everyone

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 4, 2012
Crave offers everything from sushi to steaks and ribs to seafood and even pizza. To do all these things well, you’d think they would need a decked-out kitchen, a fully staffed sushi bar and a dedicated pizza oven — maybe even wood-burning. Check, check and check.   

WhackBurger (Review)

Unique Ingredients, Comic Books Inspire New Burger Joint

1 Comment · Tuesday, June 26, 2012
What do ground beef, onomatopoeia and a slew of fresh ingredients have in common? Well, nothing, really, unless you’re at the new gourmet burger restaurant WhackBurger in Covington. The small restaurant has been open for about a month now, serving big, juicy burgers with creative toppings right across the street from Madison Theater.

Strong's fire-breathing oven offers Italian delights

Do not be fooled by the quaint brick building and steep steps that sit back off the street as you drive toward Newport on the Levee on Monmouth Street; Strong’s Brick Oven Pizzeria is not just another pizza joint.  

Mayberry (Review)

1 Comment · Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Chef Josh Campbell knows something about spinning plates. Over a three-year span, he manned the World Food Bar at Findlay Market, opened Mayberry’s original location on Vine Street, tried his hand at a small grocery on Seventh Street and experimented with a flatbread concept in The Skinny Pig. All but Mayberry are now footnotes in Cincinnati’s culinary past.

Taj India: Anything But Typical

3 Comments · Tuesday, May 22, 2012
Indian cuisine has become my latest version of a Chinese takeout meal. It’s spicy, easy to share and something I’d never try to make myself. Taj India is my latest find for this new addiction, but I’m glad my friend and I decided to dine in recently. Otherwise we wouldn’t have experienced one of Taj India’s strong points: its excellent, friendly service.    

Asian Food Fest Comes to The Banks

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 16, 2012
One of my favorite foodie events of the year is coming to The Banks this weekend. I almost hate to report this, since it’s been a best-kept secret, but the Asian Food Fest is a don’t-miss.    

Street Art Meets Street Food at Longworth Hall

5 Comments · Tuesday, May 8, 2012
Matt Greco, owner of Grecos downtown, deftly steered clear of all that hubbub. Serving breakfast and lunch for several months now out of his new space just west of Paul Brown Stadium, Greco combines the hip and funky menu of popular food trucks with all the comforts and amenities of a brick-and-mortar restaurant.   

Mother’s Day Dish

Yes, it’s May again, and time to get ready for Mother’s Day! I have some advice: Do not buy your mom a present! It’s just one more thing that, when she eventually moves, you will have to carefully wrap in layers of bubble wrap, put in a box, attach the lid on with miles of tape and carry out to the truck.  

Hot Dog Showdown

All great artists struggle to create something new, something original. And so the biggest fear for artists is stumbling over themselves while attempting to come up with the next big thing. Chefs are no exception to this rule. For Adam Easterling and Jim Thompson, the solution is simple — just make the best things better.  

Naked Tchopstix (Review)

Asian chain offers sushi, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Southeast Asian cuisine

3 Comments · Wednesday, April 18, 2012
“Don’t judge a book by its cover.” I’m sure we’ve all heard that phrase applied to any number of situations, but I had to say it to myself when I learned I was to review a new restaurant named Naked Tchopstix. The name is just a bit twee and made me wonder how the food would be. I needn’t have worried — the food is absolutely amazing.   

The Bites of Spring

Early spring has us all outdoors, exploring gardens, ballparks and eateries. If you’re not drifting through the daffodils or noshing on an outrageous hot dog topped with baked beans, Fritos, French-fried onions and cheese at the Machine Room Grille at Great American Ball Park, you should be exploring one of the following shiny new dining spots.   

Buz (Review)

New sister restaurant of The Green Dog feels at home in Columbia-Tusculum

0 Comments · Tuesday, April 3, 2012
Some weeks need to end on a good buzz, and I was delighted to head off to a brand new restaurant, Buz, in Columbia Tusculum, as last week wrapped up. Buz is the new sister restaurant of The Green Dog, and as we drove out Columbia Parkway there was a gorgeous bright rainbow in the sky that arched almost down to the diner’s doors.
