Thank you, CityBeat!

We received another $25 gift certificate from the wonderful people over at CityBeat Cincinnati. This gift certificate is to Metropole at 21c Museum Hotel in the mail today. We won this one for the Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week photos we posted from our trip to Django Western Taco during GCR Week

A huge thank you to CityBeat for the gift card! It’s greatly appreciated. It’s really pretty cool to have events like GRC Week and be able to take advantage of the great deals they bring. And it’s incredible to get rewarded for something we would have done anyway. Take photos. For that, we are very grateful. We can’t wait to put this gift card to good use! And of course, we’ll post the photos. Thanks again, CityBeat! 😀❤️

#GCRWeek17: Django Western Taco.

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! IT’S GREATER CINCINNATI RESTAURANT WEEK!
Our first meal of restaurant week was at the only restaurant participating in Northside, the newly reopened Django Western Taco...

We got to try both of the appetizers…

Ensalada Fresca…

And Grilled Bread…

For the main course, we shared the Blended Steak Burger…

And Charred Eggplant Mushroom Enchiladas…

And we got to try both desserts…

The Chili Chocolate Mousse…

And the Warm Doughnuts…

Everything we had was absolutely delicious! But the salad, burger and mousse were the clear winners for us round by round…

What a wonderful way to start our Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week! 😀🌮❤️

Thank you, CityBeat!

This afternoon I ran out to get my hair cut. On my way back to the office, I stopped by the offices of CityBeat at Race and Ninth Streets…

They had two gift cards for me to pick up. First, a  $25 gift certificate to The Cricket Lounge in The Cincinnatian Hotel downtown for a photo I took during Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week, and another $25 gift card to Sammy’s Craft Burgers
& Beers
 in Blue Ash for a photo I took during Cincinnati Burger Week

A huge thank you to CityBeat for the gift cards! They are greatly appreciated. It’s really pretty cool to have events like GRC Week and Cincy Burger Week, and be able to take advantage of the great deals they bring. Well… we just love it. But it’s a whole other thing to get rewarded for something we would have done anyway. Take photos. For that, we are very grateful. We can’t wait to put these gift cards to good use! And of course, we’ll post the photos. Thanks again, CityBeat! 🙂

#GCRWeek16: Prime47.

Tonight, we continued our Greater Cincinnati Restaurant by checking out Prime47 at the corner of Walnut and Sixth Streets downtown. We’ve walked by Prime47 a million times on our way here or there. But we’ve never stopped in. We always thought it would be wicked expensive. Restaurant Week was the perfect chance for us to finally check it out and see what we’ve been missing…

Come to find out that Prime47 has a really tasty-sounding Lounge Menu that seems pretty reasonable. We’ll have to give that a try some other time. Back to the business at hand, Prime47’s Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week offerings. Three courses for $35 each.  Let’s get this dinner started…

We both started with the Caesar Salad and bread with oil…

I was going to get the 80z. Prmie NY Strip with twice baked potato. But they said they were all out of it. So we both ordered the 6oz. Petite Filet with shallots mashed, julienne vegetables with red wine demi…

Just look at that gorgeous piece of meat…

The steak was the perfect temperature, the demi was amazing, the julienne vegetables were a just little peppery and delicious, and mashed are always the perfect accompaniment for any great steak…

And I would put that steak right there in the running for one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Unbelievably good. Just perfect. For dessert, Genifer ordered the Grippo’s pretzel covered brownie with vanilla ice cream…

Just, wow! I ordered the half-baked chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream…

I really don’t know which dessert was better. They were both so rich and decadent. We would go back just for the desserts alone. And we’re not even huge dessert people. But the best part was that we had a $50 gift certificate that FC Cincinnati sent along as an extra gift with our season tickets

So it was very reasonable for such an incredible meal. Come to find out that the kicker is the exact meal we had tonight is part of Prime47’s Prime Seating Menu, available from 4-6 daily. So we could do this dinner all over again! And we’ll definitely be back to savor this amazing meal again. 🙂

#GCRWeek16: Pompilio’s.

Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week (#GCRWeek) started today. Restaurant week consists of restaurants offering specially selected 3-course dinner menus with a price point of $35 for one or two guests. We found ourselves across the river over in Newport this evening, and decided to kick-off our Restaurant Week with some amazing Italian cuisine at Pompolio’s

We sat in Colonel Pomp’s Tavern so we could watch some of the Reds game…

ps. They lost. :/

Apparently, I was sitting in the Commish’s Chair…

We wondered if Tom Selleck was going walk into the bar, stop, look at us and give us one of his classic disapproving sighs. We each started with a house salad…

The house Italian dressing was incredible. Genifer ordered the cheese tortellini. And I had the chicken parmigiano…

Really enormous portions…

Chicken parm you taste so good

Incredibly delicious stuff. The leftovers were just as delicious for lunch on Tuesday…

And finally, we shared this gigantic tiramisu for dessert…

Delicious stuff. And all for just $35! It was a great start to our Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week! 🙂
