Submit to the tasty pleasures of this Florence gem

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 17, 2010
I'm letting you in on one of my "Bet you didn’t know about this place" places, since it's starting to become more and more well known anyway. And it deserves to! Mai Thai is located just across the road from the quirkiest hotel in, well, just about anywhere: the Wildwood Inn. Even if the exotic setting isn't enough to entice you to Florence Y'all, the food at Mai Thai should be.

When you live in a city with an incredible German heritage, people sometimes ask whether it has great German restaurants.

During his recent visit to Cincinnati, Michael Stern — who explores regional food for books ('Roadfood') and public radio's 'The Splendid Table' with ex-wife Jane Stern — told me Aglamesis ice cream was on his must-try list, so we headed to Oakley to visit the shop. "It seems like when you say you're coming to Cincinnati, there's a group of people who insist you have to try Graeter's, and then there's another group that says you have to try Aglamesis," he said. "What's the difference?"

I had a chance to be the proud stage mama of Cincinnati dining recently. Since I love showing off the wonderful, unique aspects of our local cuisine, I jumped at the opportunity to spend the morning driving and dining with Michael Stern who, with Jane Stern, explores America's regional food and comments for 'The Splendid Table,' heard locally on WVXU-FM.
