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.

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.

New and notable on the dining scene is
the latest addition to the Washington Park/OTR/Gateway District — The
Anchor (14th and Race, Over-the-Rhine). After a few days of serving
family and friends to get in the groove, full-service operations started
on Sept. 18.
