Bourbon House has the best true deep dish in the area, at least that I've had. Agreed about reheating -- I think you'll find that true with all deep dishes. The dough and the sausage don't taste quite right the second time. I brought a Lou Malnati's home from Chicago last year and we had the same experience.
 
We like the Rincon place, but I can never remember the full name for some reason, so I always refer to it as Ricardo Rincon, who is a reliever for the Twins. I like Miguel's better, even though it's a couple miles further.

Man, I gotta get home to the Queen City. I'm stuck in the gastronomical wasteland known as Dayton. These people don't even know goetta, the breakfast ambrosia of the gods." />

What's the best place to eat in NKy, near the airport? I have to pick my wife up about 7 Wednesday and we need someplace for dinner. We've been to Jo An (very good but expensive), and Dewey's at Crestview Hills Towne Center. We'd like to stay near 275. Any ideas?

If you come out of the airport go to the end of the road and turn left and down about 2 miles more or less is a wonderful restaurant on the left side of the road whose name I do not recall but if you go at lunch or dinner time you will see a packed parking lot and lots of airline workers there.

The name will come to me or TJ will tell you shortly.

Isn't there anyplace in Batavia?

This is a restaurant downtown who might have decent breakfast but I do not recall its name at the moment - think it is on Main St.

There is Mamas Restaurant off 32 but I think the food there pretty well sucks.

Have you been to Walts Hitching Post on KY 17? (Madison Pike)?
 
Google says it's 13 minutes from the airport.

Thanks for suggestions. Been to Walt's, but it's been years. Been to the Greyhound, most recently for brunch, which was a lot of fun, but my last dinner experience there was just okay. I thought there was some action in Hebron; I know Nuvo had been there but moved and I think it's closed.

Late to the thread so it may have been discussed.

I'm always interested in strong burger shops.

Bard's in Latonia is always good as long as you're not looking for atmosphere. Right down the road is Mahogany's which has good burgers but the owner is sort of slimy.

5 Guys is coming to the Towne Center @ Crestview Hills.

Who else?

There's also a new Italian restaurant that just opened in Hebron to good reviews called Marcello's:

Haven't had a chance to try it yet personally.

Any idea when the Five Guys will open? Says "coming soon" on the Web site.
 
I've never had it, but its reputation is pretty good.

We've been to Marcello's twice (this is the new Italian restaurant in Hebron).  The place has a TON of potential, but it just needs someone who knows how to run the front of the house.  The owner is a skilled chef who has been cooking Italian food all over the country for 30 years.  He makes everything from scratch, including desserts and breads.  The food is classic old school Italian-American with a few modern flourishes thrown in for daily specials.  The food is really, really good.  ON the otherhand the service is pretty bad, but only because there is no one out front who knows what they are doing.  Both times we have been our servers have been very nice but obviously confused and disoriented.  The wine list does not have any prices on it, so you have to ask the waiter how much each bottle costs until you find one that fits your budget.  At first they had no Italian wines on the list, which is odd for an Italian restaurant, but they now have a few.  The restaurant is well designed and clearly the owner spent some real money on the decor.  I am going to keep eating there with the hope that the waitstaff will turn around or the owner will hire an experienced manager to run the dining room.  As a NKY resident it is nice to have a Italian restaurant nearby that is not a chain.

Is it mainly Northern or Southern Italian?  Pizza?

There was a 'Now Hiring' sign on the front of the store when I went past last Sunday, so construction should be near completion.

Like many Italian-American restaurants in this country, Marcello's is a mix of north and southern Italian cuisine.  I believe there is pizza, but I did not try it.

T.J.:  The place is "nice" but not so stuffy that kids would feel unwelcome.  They do half orders of pasta that are a great deal for kids.  There is also unlimited salad included with full orders of pasta and entrees.

Just got back from Marcello's.  6:30 PM and only 4 tables taken.  Waiter said it's been hit or miss with the crowd.  Didn't order wine so I can't comment on the list or the price.  Didn't see pizza on the menu but really wasn't looking for it.  Special was swordfish and rack of lamb.  We opted for stuffed portobello mushroom with goat cream cheese and crab for $10.  Best part of the meal!  Bread & salad were a little above standard fare.  Veal parmesan ($18) was good, as well as the chicken piccata ($14).  We will be back.  I's like to try the filet mignon - 16 oz. for under $28.

We had not been to Hi Bombay! in several months, but our meal last night was extremely disappointing, which is the first time that has ever happened in 5+ years of patronage. I don't know if it is a chef problem or a cost-cutting problem (or both), but the puri that came with my meal was more than a little overdone, and my wife's saag paneer (the only dish she orders regularly) was decidedly off, as though they changed the recipe or forgot an ingredient or two.

The main offense was the rice, however; this is the first time (at this or any other Indian restaurant) that I have ever seen basmati rice NOT used, but instead a shorter grain rice (possibly jasmine) that was far too moist and sticky.

Service was great and very friendly, as always, but we are now seriously considering whether or not it is worth the drive to Fields Ertel with so many other options in Clifton, just a couple miles from us. I would at least like to return to find out if the lamb (or chicken) makhani is still excellent; in my opinion, they are the only Indian restaurant in town whose sauce does not have a pungent "tomato soup" taste, but if it turns out that they have altered that recipe as well...

Heard a rumor today that a Mexican place named Jalapeno's opened up in Crescent Springs somewhere along 27 by where the old Buckskin Bev's used to be.

I might go tonight or sometime this week to check it out.  If it's the same as the old places that were in Kenwood & Florence, I'll let you all know!!  Keep your fingers crossed!!

Went to the "new" Jalapeno's today in Cold Springs (thanks for the correction TJ ) and it was awesome.

I think they are trying to make it more of a fast food place (like take your order at a counter, make your own drink type place) ... probably saves money on not having to have so many waiters and it's quicker so great for lunch.  And the food was just as good as the old Jalapeno's in Florence & Kenwood.  They've  condensed the menu a lot, but seem to be willing to make our old favorites!  And the biggest PLUS was that it was cheaper.  We'd usually spend $25 at the old place and only spent $16 at the new... for the same food!!  Total win/win!!!

Oh and the salsa was kick-@ss!!

We are huge carnivores entertaining vegans this week!  I got a vegan cookbook, and we're doing some things at home from that.  I'm wondering if there are some places that accommodate vegans that someone could recommend.   I know that most  Indian restaurants have vegan offerings, but my husband isn't crazy about Indian food. I've already checked with Slim's and we're going there one evening this week.  Anyone know of a good tempeh burger or portobello burger or any other dishes that are vegan at local restaurants.  TIA

Melt in Northside. Many vegan options, and they even put meat on a few sandwiches.

The long-vacant stall where A&W once operated in the food court at Carew Tower is being remodeled at the moment, with a poster out front indicating that "Chicken Joy' will be opening there in Mid September.  I can't find a website that matches to logo on the poster, but this *might* be a Phillipine style chicken place?  Maybe?  Maybe Polly will have the official word soon

I wish them well, always good to have more inexpensive lunch choices, but with Chik-Fi-La and a Teriyaki Chicken joint within a few yards, I have to wonder how sound this business plan is

On another note, my bus today went by ZZ's Pizza, and they look to be fairly close to opening

Endzone: this thread is more about places people can go to eat, ie current eateries, but I do know of a thread devoted to old/defunct eateries in Cincinnati

Thanks, everybody for the vegan ideas.  I've filed them away, because this friend will be visiting again.  We went to Slim's Thursday night and had just the best dinner.  They were extremely accommodating to our vegan guest.  Then the boys (I had to work!) went to Mary Swortwood's new  Green Dog Cafe on Friday, as it was recommended by Polly Campbell in Friday's Enquirer.  Polly rated it  3 out of 5 stars, but our vegan friend (who incidentally was an accomplished gourmet cook before he went vegan and probably is still a great cook) rated it 5 out of 5.  He loved (and so did my husband) the fresh guac which was made in front of them.  Our friend had the veggie burger and pronounced it outstanding, and my husband had the "Hey Perro" wrap, which was vegetarian and he said it was wonderful.  This coming from a confirmed carnivore.  Can't wait to try it myself!
