I forgot my camera this fateful Wednesday so no pics of the great food...but I'll tell you about it. My ex-boss decided to take me out to lunch for my birthday (yeah Terry!) and let me pick - since I am THE FOOD HUSSY! So I chose Behle Street Cafe in Covington. It's on the first floor of one of the hotels - Embassy I think...
I also decided to walk - I work downtown and thought "Oh heck - just walk over the Suspension Bridge and I'm there - how long could that take?????" Haha - 20 damn minutes - that's how long! I was a little sweaty when I got there but luckily there was a breeze so I didn't smell (did I Terry?).
I discovered Behle Street when I worked in Covington. They have a great pasta that comes with chunks of meatloaf instead of meatballs! It's sooooo good! But I was feeling like I should behave a little more...so I didn't get that.
I ordered the Capellini Vegetarian (Broccoli, carrots, snow peas, sprouts, cauliflower, peppers, onion, mushrooms, garlic, and basil with your choice of marinara or our classic olive oil sauce). The cost is $9.75 and you get a salad and bread - so I think it's a good price. I opted for the marinara because that's what I was in the mood for.
I started with the Greek salad - man it was GOOD! I loved it - normally I go Caesar but was feeling Greek and it was a good choice! Olives, feta and yumminess!
The pasta was great - there was a ton of veggies and they were not overcooked at all - still were very crunchy. There wasn't much added flavor to them - but I could see if you had the olive oil sauce that they would pick up that flavor. The marinara was chunky, saucy and a touch sweet - just like it should be.
My boss opted for the Cobb salad and it looked very good and he enjoyed it.
The one place they lack is the bread - it's bland and bleh. Warm it up, give us some flavored butter, something. It's just a hunk of bread now - could add something to the meal if they made any effort.
Thankfully - my boss took pity on me and gave me a lift back to the office rather than making me walk another 20 minutes back! He has a cute little convertible so it was a great ride back...and I was only 5 minutes late to my meeting as opposed to 30 minutes late. Well and I didn't stink!
I always enjoy Behle Street but it's not holy cow amazing so I'll give it the good old 3 star = That's like generic mac & cheese - almost perfect - but it's not the blue box!
Hope you all have a great week! I'll be posting more reviews this week!
