Congratulations are in order for Ohio
Treasurer Josh Mandel. As part of his U.S. senatorial campaign, Mandel, a
Republican, has earned his sixth “Pants on Fire” rating from
fact-checking website PolitiFact.
Chef Daniel Wright, who owns Senate with
his wife, Lana, is Food & Wine’s
People’s Choice for the Best New Chef in the Midwest. He has two hit
restaurants in the hottest neighborhood in town. He is days away from
becoming the father of twins. His mojo is working overtime.
Some of the more happening spots
around town — some have outrageously creative drink menus, others have
some of the freshest and most mouth-watering food around and others
still encourage you to dance your ass off.
Cocktails before breakfast! What could make that better? How about complimentary cocktails before breakfast made by one of the country's top mixologists? That Black Paloma I enjoyed on the mezzanine of the Hotel Monteleone last Friday before heading up to the rooftop for fresh bagels with vodka-cured lox was just one of the excellent perks of Tales of the Cocktail.
Senate is the new place where the cool kids go, and I know why: It's fun, the menu doesn't take itself too seriously and its location is red hot. Senate's mission is to present upscale street food, and they've done a terrific job of planning a menu that's varied enough to suit most appetites but taken up a few notches so no one is disappointed.
