We did 50 West in Mariemont on Sunday. Our experience after a slow start was definitely positive.
We walked in and it looked like there was a hostess area set up, but no hostess nor nearby waiters/waitresses. After about two minutes we seated ourselves. After about five more minutes someone came over to take our order, and after explaining what happened, we weren't offered any kind of apology.
We knew the menu was tapas style, so we ordered the turkey wings, the stuffed poblano and the C.A.B. (White cheddar, bacon and cole slaw sliders).
The food was all excellent and surprisingly filling. They were $8 each, and we shared all three. The stuffed poblano had a chicken-chorizo filling that was delightful. The turkey wings were huge, well cooked and served in sort of a buffalo sauce and the CABs were really good as well, although I normally don't like cole slaw. You get three for $8.
I thoroughly enjoyed the beer, as I knew I would. I certainly wasn't turned off by it, but tapas-style food normally is for an upscale crowd. Beer drinkers -- even high-end beer drinkers -- are typically more into bar food. Wings, fried stuff, etc.
Sorry I hit the wrong button...no issue with this post. AL
