WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Ginger Rhodes [Principal, Hughes High School]

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 20, 2011
Hughes High School is a Clifton landmark. The building is indeed remarkable, but what is even more impressive are the students and staff that call the building a second home. The gargoyles keep watch over the exterior, but one woman, principal Ginger Rhodes (and her staff, of course), keeps the interior running like clockwork.  

Blinkers Tavern (Review)

Offering casual American tavern fare with creative, upscale twist

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 20, 2011
When it was announced that Chalk Food Wine in Covington was closing its doors this year, it left an empty spot in our stomachs (or hearts, for you sentimental types). Sandy Meyer and Gary Ginn with their chef Jon Spencer, they created a menu and had Blinkers Tavern open, breathing new life into the space.  

Holy Grail (Review)

Local restaurant's third location christens The Banks

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 13, 2011
A decade and a half after planning began, we finally have evidence of The Banks' existence with the opening of the Holy Grail Tavern and Grille. Located directly across from Great American Ball Park, this spot is guaranteed to be packed for our boys of summer and will be a hotspot to root on our beloved and beleaguered Bengals in the fall and winter.  

Naked Lunch

Social media is a powerful force these days, providing the means for the people of Egypt to shake their government at its very foundation. Here at home, Naked Pizza is using social media to shake up Americans’ love affair with pizza.  

Let Them Eat Cake!

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 6, 2011
It’s April, and my thoughts have turned to cake. Now, mind you, I am not talking about just any cake. There are a lot of cakes in the world that I wouldn’t waste a calorie on. Bad grocery-store cake with super-sugary icing is nasty. It should never be served at home and is acceptable only at office birthday parties when you dislike the people you work with. If you like your co-workers even a little bit and have to have a store-bought treat, get donuts.  

David Taylor [La Poste]

David Taylor’s tastes range from the international to the simplest of comfort food. His home cooking is mostly one-dish suppers made in his grandmother’s cast-iron fried chicken pan. His meals at La Poste are also straight from the heart — honest food like pork shank with white beans and kale.  

China Gourmet (Review)

Longstanding Cincinnati Chinese restaurant remains a classic

1 Comment · Wednesday, April 6, 2011
In the next few months, CityBeat’s dining crew is going to periodically revisit some classic Cincinnati restaurants. What defines a classic? Well, if longevity is a factor, Hyde Park’s China Gourmet certainly qualifies. They’ve been serving fine Chinese cuisine since 1977. In an era when restaurants close within months of opening, the fact that China Gourmet is still going strong in its fifth decade is an amazing testimony to its ownership.  

Eat Lunch, Save the World

I will be the first to admit that I am not the most eco-friendly person out there. I am terrible about recycling and I am constantly reminded about my eco failures by my closest friends. Therefore, when I heard about Greek To Me Prassino, I knew that my broad carbon footprinting required that I try it out.  

Julie Francis [Owner, Nectar Restaurant]

No one is happier to see signs of spring than locavore chef Julie Francis, chef and owner of Nectar. She’s anticipating the growing season the way most of us wait for Santa Claus, with visions of sugar snap peas dancing through her head.  

Walnut Street Grill (Review)

Jeff Ruby’s latest restaurant goes for comfort food with flair

1 Comment · Wednesday, March 30, 2011
People who hate surprises, rejoice! I have good news. You may now come downtown, park your car and enjoy dinner and a show at the Aronoff and a very nearby eatery. Jeff Ruby has opened a new place that is custom tailored for you — the Walnut Street Grill. There are no bad surprises here. Nothing unfamiliar. These are upscaled (ever so slightly) versions of dishes you’ll find in most familiar casual restaurants.
