The build-out at Kaze is breathtaking. The old Cincinnati Color building on Vine Street is such a landmark that it would have been dreadful had it been torn down, and Kaze saved it.

Eat Well Café and Takeaway (3009 O Bryon St., O’Bryonville) is now open. Chef/owner Renee Schuler’s newest endeavor is just what I expected — fresh, polished and yet simple and comforting.  

New Year, New Drink

Drinking is tough to do well. No, I’m not talking about when you let your beer run down your chin. People, that is completely outside my area of expertise. I’m talking about having the confidence it takes to order a good cocktail.

As we wrap up 2012 in Cincinnati, we’ve got a helluva story to tell — and some bragging to do. I write about drinks and dining, and I can’t even get around to all the new places that are opening.

Whether your favorite version of A Christmas Carol stars Alastair Sim or Donald Duck, there’s something endearing about Scrooge’s change of heart and Tiny Tim’s blessing. And how about that Christmas goose? The Golden Lamb has it!

People love Dojo at Findlay Market for their gelato. I am hopeless in the face of their delicious affogato. This espresso/gelato float has gotten me through many a difficult day. On a recent visit, Dojo owner Michael Christner advised me that he was about to up the ante.  

A Very Findlay Holiday

Aren’t you glad you don’t live in the days when “sugarplums” were a big Christmas treat? What is a sugarplum, anyway? I’m looking forward to some old-fashioned goodies, but I’m making my list and checking to be sure it’s all local and all delicious. Pretty much everything included in this list can be found at Findlay Market, so that’s one-stop shopping you can feel good about.  

An Artisan Affair

Take your fanciest tray or cutting board out of the cupboard where it lurks 360 days a year, and put it in your car. Drive to Dutch’s Larder. Seriously, this is the wow-factor your party always wanted.   

Hot Toddies Keep Out the Chill

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to flu shots, I’d rather skip the doctor and follow the advice of a good bartender, like Rom Wells of The Rookwood in Mount Adams. He prescribes a single barrel (preferably barrel proof) whiskey, lemon and honey, with a whole star anise, cinnamon stick and clove in it, served in a snifter. That sounds like a cure for the common winter blahs.  

In With The New

Cincinnati’s newest seafood restaurant is also its best. Welcome to Porkopolis, Anchor OTR. I love the scale of this restaurant. No, not the fish scales! The size and scope. It’s just right.
