I noticed a relatively new place out off of Buttermilk Pike called Salsarita's. Looks like something in the Chipotle/Moe's realm. Anyone have any experience with it? I think we're going to give it a try this Saturday.

I believe there is a Salsarita's off of Union Centre Blvd. in West Chester. I was there about 12 months ago. If I were rating the Burrito places in order: 1)Qdoba, 2)Chipotle 3)Moe's 4)Salsaritas. From my memory, there was nothing special about the food at Salsarita's that was going to have me drive past Qdoba or Chipotle to get there.

I've been to the Salsaritas off Buttermilk twice. It is pretty much the same as Qdoba and the others except that they have a bar where you can get margaritas, etc. I think it is slightly more expensive than the other burrito places.

There is a new Thai place on 42 across from Wildwood Inn, it's in the old Long John Silvers. I have been there twice, and it was excellent both times. They also have a sushi bar.

There are two Indian Restaurants, both on Mall Rd. One in the plaza by Barnes and Nobles, the other by Cahay Kitchen. I have been to Taj (BNN) and it was good. I think the other one is also a grocery.

Is the new Thai place Mai's Thai that is mentioned above, or is this yet another?

The Salasarita's on UC Blvd is in the same complex as the new Chipotle. I've thought about trying it but I usually get there between 9 and 10pm and they seem to close early. Chipotle to the rescue.

I've never seen or heard of Qdoba. Do they have a local presence? Salsarita's was okay, better than Moe's, better variety than Chipotle. That said, if I want a burrito, I'm still considering myself a Chipotle guy. As for the Buttermilk location of Salsarita's, I'd say you'd better try it quick if you plan to try it. We were there at 6:00 last night and the place was a tomb.

I worked at this LJS location when I was in college. Horrible place, full of nasty memories and stomach turning odors. It's a wonder I can look seafood in the eye these days.

Tried another Vietnamese place on the north side of town...

Le's is on Cresentville Rd. at 747 just north of Tri County Mall in the same complex as Gold Star.

Not really impressed. Got there at 8pm and the place was dead. The one guy working there had to turn the lights on in the kitchen to make my order. Had spring rolls, beef vermicelli and took a banh mi sandwich home for later.

The spring rolls didn't have much flavor and seemed to be mostly filled with rice noodles. There wasn't much beef or shrimp involved. The beef in the vermicelli had more of a boiled texture to it than the char broiled pork I am used to. The pork bahn mi was good but not great. Also, the nuoc mam that came with the rolls and the beef was very strong and almost unpleasant to my western palate. I'm no expert so this may be more authentic but just not for me.

Overall I would highly recommend driving a few miles north and hitting Chopsticks on Tylersville at 75. They have yet to serve me something I didn't enjoy and the charbroiled pork has me looking into a 12 step program.

To change the subject, where does a person get a good fish taco in this town. Amigos on RT. 4 across from Taqueria Mercado had them but they've closed. I've also had them at Montoya's on Buttermilk but would like to find somewhere on the north side to get a fix. Fried fish is good but grilled would be even better.

Cheers-

Tom

Yeah, Alex did a cameo (alone) on WXIX 19 on Friday morning demo-ing the cold lobster roll. Kinda fubar'd it up, which cemented the fact that his best place is not in the kitchen. Said the restaurant should be open this weekend and dim sum up and running in a few weeks.

We'll see how it goes...
(I for one miss the stuff and am wildly addicted to the dim sum offereings)

Wallyum and Suburban Dad:

If you want the best buritto in Cincinnati, hands down, go to the Comet in Northside. It is located at 4579 Hamilton Ave (513) 541-8900.

The Comet is not a restaurant but a bar with a kitchen. David, the Owner used to live in the Barrio (Mission District) in San Francisco and this is where he learned to make the San Francisco style buritto that they sell.

The burittos are about the size of a small child and they are absolutely delicious. They make about 10 different kinds including a Tofo buritto which is as good as any of the meat burittos. They also have Quesadillas and a few other dishes. I especially like their Chile Con Queso with chicked added. All of their salsas are homemade and they also feature a salusa of the month. Here is a link to their menu:

http://www.cometbar.com/2006_menu.htm

Being a bar the kitchen dosn't open until 4:00pm daily but the good news is they serve food until 1:00am. Children are welcome in the afternoon and early evenings. As if the food wasn't a good enough reason to stop by, on Sundays evening starting about 7:30 they offer the best Bluegrass music in Cincinnati. Featuring the 4 time Cammy Award winning "Comet Blugrass Allstars".

Has anyone seen any reference to food vendors at Tall Stacks? I've looked at the website and the supplement on Tall Stacks in today's Enquirer and have seen no specific references to food available. We only spent an afternoon there the last time and we didn't look for food. Would anyone who went to the previous ones let me know what kind of eats were available? We're planning to do the whole event this time.

Thanks!

Sandy

Sandy~

I did the entire "Tall Stacks" event the last time. The music was fabulous!! The boats were cool!!! I took my grandkids one day and they had fun.

But, I have to say, the food was unremarkable. I think there was a BBQ booth, some hamburgers and hot dogs, and definitely a blooming onion {which I DID eat}. My SO said he remembers eating a great dessert. There were coneys, but not Skyline or Gold Star.

What I am trying to say is, from what I recall, there were a number of generic food booths that were not obviously affliated with any restaurant. There was nothing distinctly "Cincinnati" {not that most Cincinnatians would want what they can get everyday}.

There was nothing unusual or different, food wise. Things may be different this time around, but I haven't heard anything.

However, I believe the best thing the Tall Stacks organizers did was incorpoate music. I saw some fabulous musicians, and some fabulous river boats. It is a great festival, just not a food festival.

That being said, if you bought a pass, you can come and go as you please. You can always walk across the Purple People Bridge, or go uptown, and eat, and then go back. Try Campanello's on Central Ave. for Italian.

There are a lot of good musicians to experience. I am kind of upset that the two I really wanted to see are playing at the same time {Sat. night ~ John Hiatt and Delbert McClinton}. Why would they put two greats on different stages at the same time?? {just my humble opinion!}

Enjoy!!! Tall Stacks is a great bargain for the price!!

I've been told about this place for a few years now, but I've never managed to get up that way. My bar days have kind of faded into history, a fact that was rammed home on Saturday night after a 30th reunion of my grade school class. Four of us made the trip to a local bar, which was my first since I quit playing softball for the Skyline Tavern a few years back. I wasn't uncomfortable, but I've definitely lost my feeling for that life. That said, I'll eventually make it to The Comet some night when I have the right dinner companion. My wife and kids aren't the adventurous type.

Every night they had something different on the menu as a special...salmon, meatloaf etc. They needed to stick to one thing...great bar-b-que and go with it.

Also, they needed to cut down on portion size and drop the prices slightly. Way too much food to possibly eat.

Great people ran this place and put a lot of time and effort into this place. I am sad to see them go. Good luck all at Jimmy's!!! We will miss you.

More info on Tall Stacks food. The article says they will have a "Best of Cincinnati" tent, but the rest of the food is all from one concessionaire:

Sooz -

Thanks for your helpful responses. That link elucidated the situation. I was hoping for some Pit To Plate Q (available at the Cincy Blues Festival) but it appears that's not in the cards. Looks like we may be strolling uptown to try TJ's favorite burger at Madonna's, or over the bridge for Cafe Istanbul or Pacific Moon. Perhaps we can get to the Mansion Hill Tavern. There is apparently a short-hop shuttle circulating through the Tall Stacks area that may expand our choices.

Thanks, again.

Sandy

Oops, not Saturday , but.., Friday, Oct. 6th
Edyth and Carl Linder Stage Delbert McClinton 10:05 - 11:15pm
Great American Insurance Stage John Hiatt 10:45pm - 12 am


If you haven't been there, it IS impossible to navigate the crowds, and see them both.

Thanks, tpd, for the info, but I wouldn't attempt it on Friday or Saturday.

We went to Tall Stacks yesterday evening and stayed until midnight. We took the civilized Park and Ride option and got to TS quickly and with no stress. It was crowded but you could move back and forth between stages easily. Food choices were limited and we agreed that we will need to seek out other options beyond the TS venue. What's available includes generic dogs, brats, and burgers as well as: Montgomery Inn with pulled pork and chicken and Saratoga chips; Skyline Chili; Barleycorn's with a few of their menu items; a booth selling pork chop sandwiches, Schmidt's of Columbus, OH, purveying Bahama Mamas and cream puffs, a couple of other booths with German specialties, a vendor selling Caribbean food including jerk chicken and crab cakes, Graeter's ice cream, and Dove bars.

We managed to miss the Schmidt's booth on our first pass but we were in the mood for German and tried a couple of the other booths. Bill wanted the chicken and noodles advertized on one of the signs but they didn't have any, so he settled for cabbage and noodles which was pretty tasty. I ordered pork and sauerkraut at the other booth and got a hot, heaping bowl of well-seasoned roast pork and sauerkraut for $6.00. The server kept pressing it down and piling on more, and the pork was plentiful so it was a good deal and very tasty. There were bay leaves in it and another smaller leaf that I thought might be basil...very savory and filling. Later Bill got a fried garlic bologna sandwich which he found to be good. The booth I patronized was Cafe Mozart of Canton, OH. I assume this is a real restaurant? How sad when Cincinnati has to import German food from Canton, OH. The beer of Tall Stacks is Bud, whether you like it or not. You pay in cash, no tickets necessary. Sobriety will not be a problem. Bill allowed as how we shared "a $30.00 six-pack".

The music we heard was great. Buckwheat Zydeco was a good time but, as Bill observed, it's a party band they had playing at 4:30 in the afternoon. It was too sunny and everyone was too sober for the band to be appreciated to the fullest extent. Asleep at the Wheel did a great set. We enjoyed Chis Smither but his set was low-key and he should have been scheduled for earlier in the evening. Bettye Lavette was just awesome...she gave a soulful and vivid performance. She was all over the stage and put every song over with great feeling. She had the audience in the palm of her hand. Her voice is also strong and true despite years in the business. Although her voice is a little past its peak, she had the guts to end with an a capella tune...impressive. And Reverend Al Green had everyone smiling, singing and moving despite the rain that began just after his set started. He hit some notes that answered his own question: "Has the reverend still got it???"

Hope this weather clears. I'm ready to go back.

TJ, thanks for the recommendation of Mansion Hill. We'll try to get there during the festival.

Took a break from TS on Friday between Robin Lacy and John Hiatt and walked over the the Mansion Hill Tavern. Got there about 8:15 but got shut out on the burgers (they had gone through all the ground beef for the day). Did have a pretty good fish sandwich and some tasty fries. The only issue I had was that the fish didn't really fill the bread it was served on. It was more a log than a fillet but on regular rye bread.

Went back across the purple bridge and had to try a Schmidt's bratt. Good but not great and not quite hot enough. Finally found the good beer just north of the main stage and had a Red Hook ESB while enjoying a solo John Hiatt.

Not a bad day...

We caught Delbert McClinton on Friday night and he (and his impressive band) put on a great show. It was probably the longest set at Tall Stacks, so far. I believe he was ready to play all night, like somebody who'd earned his experience playing in bars (no doubt).
Big fun. Today we're headed out to see the Blind Boys of Alabama, Charlie Musselwhite, and Buddy Guy. Might try to catch some of Marcia Ball and Dr. John in between.

soozycue - there is a sort of "bypass" behind the food booths that has allowed us to get from one end to the other pretty quickly. I hope it's still relatively less-trafficked today.

tpd - I might look for a Red Hook this evening although we've really cut back on beer consumption, and not just because of the cost. I counted up the bathroom stalls and there are approximately 34 stalls per gender available in the entertainment area. Obviously this is totally inadequate for the anticipated attendance of one million. The lines to the womens' bathrooms are very long and the condition deteriorates rapidly after the sun goes down. I have no idea what the planners were thinking: provide lots of beer booths and strolling beer vendors on the front end and then provide inadequate facilities on the other end...doh!

Seeking recommendations for a really good german bakery. Busken pastries are terrible. Would prefer one close to downtown or in Northern Kentucky, but I will drive anywhere for some good danish, kuchen, and strudel.

Servatii's is probably your best bet. They have several locations in Cincinnati and some of their products are available at Kremer's Market on Buttermilk in Crescent Springs, KY although the selection there is limited (batards and some pastries). Here's a link for Servatii's:

Thanks for the quick response. I've been to Servatti's. It was ok, but not what I was looking for. I am looking for something like Plehn's Bakery in Louisville.

Have you tried Shadeau Bakery downtown.? They have great German rye and schnecken, and various other pastries depending on what they're baking that day. Good chocolate babka.
