Why We Love Restaurants

1 Comment · Wednesday, April 29, 2009
Restaurants serve important functions in society in addition to serving us food. We celebrate the big moments of our lives in restaurants, from birthdays and new jobs to wedding receptions and anniversaries. Getting dressed up, spending money and being treated well at a top-notch restaurant makes any special occasion more special.  

Are You Ready to Eat?

Welcome to CityBeat’s annual Dining Guide, a roundup of great restaurants in Greater Cincinnati. Following the tradition that started in 2005, rather than serving up a comprehensive, A-to-Z list of more than 900 places to get eats in the Queen City, we’ve created a list of 270-plus restaurants that are worthy of your investigation — from old favorites to new kids on the block, from chic upscale establishments to no-frills, homestyle joints. New this year are features called the Ultimate Progressive Meal, in which each of our dining writers — Lora Arduser, Brian Cross, Anne Mitchell and Contributing Dining Editor Heather Smith — were asked to choose at least three courses from different restaurants in town to create their own “dream” meal.  

Gordo's Pub & Grill (Review)

Where Joe Six-Packs go to kick back with a Jean-Robert Burger

4 Comments · Wednesday, November 5, 2008
I'm a lover of things that can’t be put in a box and escape all attempts to define them. This has included people, art, literature, cities and a variety of spiritual and political movements, but it hasn’t included bars — at least not until I went to Gordo’s Pub & Grill. Smack in the middle of Norwood on Montgomery Road, Gordo’s looks like just another neighborhood bar with neon beer signs in the window.  

Relish Modern Tapas (Review)

Mason hot spot does more than just food

2 Comments · Wednesday, July 30, 2008
I know, it's a strange title for a review on a new tapas restaurant, but with martinis such as the French Kiss (topped with creamy pineapple juice and brewing with Stoli Vanilla vodka, Chambord and champagne) I would be remiss if I didn't mention the drinks at Relish Modern Tapas first.  

Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern (Review)

Rookwood spot tries to accommodate a wide variety of diners

I find myself wanting to dine casually much more often these days. I'm happiest eating at the bar with paper napkins, and if I don't have to dress up I'm pretty close to bliss.  

Tony's on the River (Review)

Travel to New Richmond for good food and a stellar view of the Ohio River

He doesn't look like Matt Damon, but Tony DeFrancesco could teach the Talented Mr. Ripley a thing or two about playing multiple roles on a Tuesday night in a semi-full restaurant on the Ohio River, all the while dodging the path of a mewing cat in heat.  

Sorrento's Pizza (Review)

Family institution has been a Cincinnati staple for more than 50 years

The only thing thicker than blood is pizza sauce. Combine the two and you have a recipe for Sorrento's Pizzeria. Pizza has often been synonymous with one family in our city, the LaRosas, but the De Luca family has been spinning dough just as long.  

Cityside Pub and Grill (Review)

Burgermania in Newport means cheap, creative eats at

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 17, 2008
Establishments like Cityside help keep our wallets lined, but they're also a much-needed alternative to some of the more homogenized cheap eats out there. The menu here is an interesting mix for a bar and grill.  

Edgecliff Room (Review)

Walnut Hills room with a view offers good food, gracious service and an enticing patio

2 Comments · Wednesday, September 24, 2008
Places like the Edgecliff Room fascinate me. Cincinnati doesn't have many of these animals — restaurants attached to a living space. These places seem like they would be most successful in densely populated urban areas like Chicago or New York.
