You think she's nearly unwatchable now? I went to Miami with her, when she was still "in training."

Oh no. My spine just twitched at the thought.

A couple weeks ago she interviewed Lisa Daltirus, who was ready to sing the title role in Cincinnati Opera's "Aida". She explained that Aida is a princess and a slave both and told Daltirus, "It must be an honor to get to play that role and here in Cincinnati, too!."

Daltirus, who has sung Aida several times before, including in Boston, was most subdued: "Yes...it's a favorite role of mine....."

And so, downhill it went.

Poor George Stephanopolous; in the "what's coming up on This Week" segment, his smile is so brittle it looks like his face will crack. And to keep on this forum's topic, even the cooking demonstrators seem to roll their eyes at how dreadful she is.

Did you mean Covington rather than Newport?

I have been to the revolving place in Covington twice.

Both times for WEBN's fireworks, both times the food was so so. Both times got gouged by the prices and the second time we were on the wrong side to see the fireworks.

I went to the revolving restaurant in Covington for lunch not long ago. I was there for a workshop and it was the closest place. Menu was really generic, food was ordinary but pricey. I asked to look at the dinner menu for grins...it was generic too.

Has anyone been to Geoffrey's in White Oak? I hear they have a good selection of homemade grub. I was shooting to head over there in the next month or so.

To paraphrase Calvin Trillin, I will not do business with a restaurant that refuses to stand still.

Last ate at the Radisson revolving diner a couple of years ago on July 4th weekend. Had steaks and chops which were quite good and a very good cheesecake dessert. Times do change.

I went to high school with the original owner and worked several years with his sister. He sold it off a few years ago to start up The Roadhouse right across the street which is now the focus of his attention.
Geoffery's is a very safe choice and many of the clientele are the 50 and over crowd due to it's menu of comfort food and MOR (middle of the road)dishes. It is not trendy, but most of the food items are fresh and hot like a mom and pop joint should be. I've been there over 10 times as my parents loved the place, but not since the new owner.

They will alter almost any dish to taste and the young wait staff is very helpful.

Enjoy

On another recent night where I was downtown all night, I had dinner - ok, a burger - at the Cityview Tavern in Mt Adams. I had never been there before, but kept hearing the burgers were good and cheap, and have had them on my list to try for a long time now.

Well, the burger was neither good (average/ok, and they will not cook the burger to order, well done only) nor cheap (7.50 for a thin 1/4 lb burger that had the look of being frozen to start with).

Has anyone been there recently? I almost feel like I went to the wrong place - they pretty much only have what I now call cincinnati style bbq beef (shredded beef in sweet bbq sauce, not real bbq), a bratwurst, and the burger on the very brief menu. While they had Bengals stuff all over the walls, they close Sunday, ergo you're not going to be able to to watch the game there most weekends. Bizarre.

Went to Chicago Gyros in Clifton tonight. Food's still good, but the wait keeps getting longer and my burger and gyro cost 75 cents more than last time. And it's a pain in the arse to get in and out of with no parking lot.

I heard from someone else here in the office about Sebastien's. I have to try it next time I go to the west side.

I haven't been to the Cityview for years, Tom, but you're describing the same place that my brain remembers. I think it's always been overrated.

If you are asking what 35 means I meant we are opening 35 more Sonic Drive-In's in the Cincinnati, OH area.

Here I am wondering if any other fast food franchise (except maybe Subway.....you can't walk 2 feet without bumping into a Subway in Cincinnati) has 39 locations (3 existing + eastgate + 35 more) in Cincinnati......

ok then :-)

Still.....39.....thats a LOT of locations for a place with little or no local foothold

I wonder if they'll ever consider building at least one with some traditional inside dining areas? I know, the car hop experience is part of the charm, but on very hot and/or humid, or very rainy, or very windy, or very cold days......I don't want to eat outside.....

Hello and good morning everyone.

Yes Sonic's main theme is the outside patio and stalls with Car Hop service but again we do have Drive Thru service and you can eat your food inside your car and keep the heat going. I know some Sonic's up north are doing indoor patio's but not in this area.


The Sonic's in Columbus and Dayton dont or will not have inside dining and some are own by corporate.

With our growth I do not see this being a saturation issue because as I said ONLY one in Eastgate then one in Miami Township then one on Beechmont. I do not see this being a saturation issue because we are at least spacing them out about 5 to 8 miles a piece. If this is saturation then I am sorry you feel this way but after Beechmont we move to the west side I believe so just having three on the east side for now is not saturation to me at least.

No need to be sorry....I wish you luck, as your burger is the easily the best (in my admittedly limited experience) I have had from a chain as an adult.

I'm just wondering of Cincinnati will give you enough business to support so many.....but I assume you folks have already done all the studies and built the business cases.....all I am doing is having a knee jerk reaction -)

One thing in your favor - overall, Cincinnati loves Chains. Unfortunate from a Roadfood point of view, for the most part, but true.

I'm in the Eastgate area, and for the most part I avoid chains, but on Dr. Jackson's say-so we'll give you a try!

I'm glad to see it. 35 locations in Cincinnati should hopefully drive a lot of people that eat at the Big Bad 3 (McDonald's, BK, Wendy's) to realize there's a better option available.

And it seems like the three locations mentioned (Miami Twp., Eastgate area, Beechmont Ave.) are in above-average income areas where people have a little more disposable income, and would be willing to sacrifice an extra buck or two for a better burger.

Culver's sort of had the same idea with attacking the upper middle class areas, but they stopped at two Cincinnati-area locations.

Word is the Centerville City BBQ location burned down Sunday morning. An acquaintance's husband is a manager for the chain, and got the call very early that day.

Yep: http://www.daytondailynews.com/search/content/oh/story/news/local/2007/08/13/ddn081307firefoloweb.html

It doesn't look to be a total loss, however. They say they are hoping to reopen "within 60 days," and the employees will work at their other locations until they reopen.

I opened this thread to openly chat about and discuss the contents of the main Cinti/NK eats thread located at http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6632

I realize everyone is free to post where they like, but respectfully ask that the chat be kept in here with the review info in the main thread if at all possible :-)

I did a switcheroo at the suggestion of a friend who says my "real name" is lame.

I decided reality beats cutesy.
