If you eat at Seasons 52, you get delicious
food from a menu where nothing is more than 475 calories. Portions are
reasonable, oils are carefully controlled and the result is nothing
short of astounding.
love authentic tacos. I’m thrilled about the recent influx of
restaurants in the greater Cincinnati area where I can indulge in my
addiction, particularly in Northside. The most recent addition is Barrio
Tequileria. It’s a good one, too.
If you live in Cincinnati and
you have out-of-town guests, you’re going to want to take them (or
they’ll want to be taken) to some rather famous Cincinnati
establishments. Jean-Robert’s Table, Skyline, and Graeter’s all have
national cache, and with good reason. But how about you surprise your
guests (and maybe yourself?) with something a little different?
“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

Three Meat Burger in Anderson Township hasn’t been open terribly long
(since late November last year) but a quick perusal on Google brings up
many positive reviews from happy, satisfied customers. The customer
satisfaction isn’t hard to understand once you’ve been to Sonny’s, eaten

These two museums don’t just have
wonderful art — they also both have fantastic cafés. I recently
undertook a mission to dine at both: CAM’s Terrace Café and the Lindner

the cafés — I would also see what treasures the museums had to offer.
I’m not a fan of strip-mall restaurants.
They always seem a little sad and rarely have charm. Zab Thai has made
me reevaluate my opinion, however. Once you walk in the front door and
are saturated in amazing aromas, you forget that on one side of the

Instead, you start looking around at everyone else’s plates to see what
they’ve ordered to make the place smell so darned good.
I’ve been on a Mediterranean food kick lately where there
is no such thing as “too much hummus.” So the opportunity to try Ali
Baba Mediterranean Grill couldn’t have come at a better time. Owner and
cook Bahaa Dawoud, a native of Palestine, opened Ali Baba in July of
this year. This is Dawoud’s first restaurant and he is passionate about
bringing people together through food.
To my delight, Sharonville has a wealth of
Indian eateries. The corridor of Reading and Lebanon Roads alone houses
a half-dozen; some strictly vegetarian, and others offering delights
