Fancy Lunch Day #5! A great success!!!!

This week we finally got around to Fancy Lunch Day #5 and wow - was it a great success!!!!!

We chose to leave the confines of downtown Cincinnati and move it on out...to the South Side...to a deluxe cafe on the row-ow-oad...movin on out...to the...oh fine - I'm singing the Jeffersons theme song for no reason...

So where was FLD#5? It was at the Greenup Cafe in Covington.

I took lots of pics with the coworkers...we have some of the highlights above...

Top Left: Quiche - Jen said it was great...
Top Right: Crab Cakes - meh - they were okay - I wouldn't order them again. The lobster cakes from Fresh Market are better.
Bottom Left: DESSERT! The big winner was the white chocolate creme brulee by far!
Bottom Right: Our rating - 3.5 stars!!
Middle and Star of the Lunch: Croissant sandwich with tomatoes, avocado, brie and red onion! It was melty (but not warmed) and tasty and crisp and just all around AWESOME!

The atmosphere also strongly deserves mention and heck - why not another photo:

Greenup is so inviting and cozy. They've kept this home in tact with all the different rooms. The rooms are all painted extremely vibrant and beautiful colors. Each room is also covered in beautiful paintings and pictures... I loved it!

I would definitely give it 3.5 stars as shown above - not quite 4 but it was great!

Lastly, I made a reservation via Open Table which wasn't at all necessary - but hey - I got my 100 pts so that's coo!
