It’s Do Downtown Cincinnati Restaurant week — the week each year that Downtown Cincinnati restaurants get to show off their chops and attract a clientele that wants to experiment, try new restaurants, and save a few bucks.

Recipe: Elotes + Ohio Summer Corn

Aug 04, 14 Recipe: Elotes + Ohio Summer Corn

Posted by in recipes

I posted a picture of elotes on Facebook and Instagram the other night and people clamored for the recipe.  I promised I’d post one, but that was sort of disingenuous.  This dish isn’t about precise proportions, it’s really about mixing a few ingredients together as you like them.  So here is how The Better Half...

Posted by in news

Jun 24, 14 Review: Gorilla Cinema’s Pulp Fiction Dinner

Posted by in reviews

Pulp Fiction is my favorite movie.  No, really.  Ezekiel 25:17 was our “scripture” at our wedding.  We have cats named Mrs. Mia Wallace and Esmerelda Villa Lobos.  Eric Brass’ “Royale with Cheese” hangs in our living room. We are BIG fans.  When I saw that Gorilla Cinemas, an effort between Jacob...

Jun 06, 14 Read This: Senate Street and Savory

Posted by in bits and bites, cookbooks

It’s kind of cool when people you know do cool things. Dan and Lana Wright opened up Senate about four months after The Better Half and I bought our condo in Over-the-Rhine. At that point, I’d lived here for about two and a half years, and the only restaurants nearby were Lucy Blue’s window and Lavomatic.  I fell...
