Dingle House Irish Pub (Review)

West Chester spot offers up camaraderie and cold beer

1 Comments · Wednesday, January 14, 2009
I used to wonder why some bars brand themselves as Irish pubs when they're not. Wouldn't it be easier to be Fred's Bar and not O'Malley's Olde Ale House? Our team of pub wonders took in the area's latest Irish-themed spot, and we arrived to a shiny, new, crowded house on a Friday evening. The mood of the place was very festive, and I liked the look of some fried oysters on their way to a patron at the bar.

I gave Vito's a rave review in 2007, and it has only improved with the addition of Chef Romuald Jung, late of the Palace Restaurant at the Cincinnatian Hotel.

Will Mr. Smith go to Washington? That’s Marvin Smith, who is the Ollie behind Ollie’s Trolley, the West End landmark dining car. Ollie has catered five of soon-to-be-president-elect Obama’s campaign events and has pictures to prove it.

Writing a dining review is a great gig, right? Hey, I can't complain. But sometimes it can be challenging, especially when the assignment isn't on your home turf. "Symmes Township?" I asked my editor. "Surely, you are not sending this city girl to Symmes Township?" "Don't call me Shirley," she replied.

Consider the pastabilities of lunch at Findlay Market. There are lots of options, but the newest is Bouchard's Anything's Pastable at the Elm Street end of the Market house.

Make plans to go to NuVo. You owe it to yourself to try this surprising new restaurant in the most unlikely of locations: Dream Street in Florence. Seriously, Dream Street is hardly Monastery St   

City View Tavern (Lunch Review)

You can be the best Pilates-taking, nonfat-latte-drinking, flossing-religiously kind of person, and yet there will come a time -- possibly lunchtime -- when only a cheeseburger will do.

There were two Cincinnati Reds at tables near us at The Oceanaire Seafood Room the other night, Adam Dunn and Corey Patterson. Professional athletes -- you'd have to be one to polish off the por
