I've been meaning to try Stone Oven for some time but it is kinda out of the way for me and the family....is it worth a trip from Mt Washington?
Also on the topic of pizza, I noted this weekend on a drive through Covington that both Germantown Pizza and Pizza Time are closed. I have no idea when they closed. The Germantown closing is especially said - they had been there for forever and a day. We ended up at[url='http://www.salvadorespizzeria.com/']Salvadore's[/url] (sed to be a Pasquale's, right? Good sauce, so-so crust, too much cheese. Not bad, not good either. The twisted breadsticks were pretty good. Don't go there if you avoid places that are not well cleaned/maintained.
For lunch Friday I ended up at my beloved Tan Thai and I was determined to order something I had never tried before because I'd never had a bad meal there no matter what I ordered. I ended up with my first serving ever of [url='http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pad_see_ew']Pad see ew[/url], spice level 2 of 5. Not only was it absolutely fantastic, it is my new favorite dish there.
I also noted on Friday that Fresh - well, actually, they had recently rebranded themselves to "Southwest Fresh" and changed their menu to burritos, tacos, taco salads, etc etc - on the corner of 4th and Walnut has a sign up indicating they are closed permanently due to problems with the Bartlet Building (which has been in the news a lot lately due to non-payment of utilities and such, leaving tenants literlally in the dark)
For lunch today, we went to John Philips in Crestview Hills, and although the place was all but empty, the food was very good. My wife had an EXCELLENT 8oz filet mignon, and I had a very good spicy farfalle dish. I also had the crab and corn chowder, also very very good. Lunch prices were well under 10 dollars in most cases, with decent portion size. The filet was off the dinner menu and was $24 but imho well worth it - ultra tender, good outer crust indicative of a high heat broiler, and much more flavorful than the typical filet. Just before we left, they sat 3 adults at the booth next to ours (weird because the place was still empty as a mausoleum, and this is a big, big place) and all three ordered (without even glancing at the menu) the "crusted chicken". I am guessing this dish must also be pretty good, I'll try it on the next visit. Not a roadfood joint, not at all, but definitely good eats.
