There's something new in town called Dishcrawl Cincinnati - imagine a pub crawl but with food. You meet up in downtown Cincinnati with a theme for the night and it's a surprise as to where you end up. Next week they're hosting two Tacocrawls - be sure to check out their site for more info.
First up was Fusian - it's the Chipotle of sushi - which isn't a bad thing by any means.
EXACTLY what I want. The one thing I will say - I was a bit shocked that I liked the steak! The steak sauce was a good match. The chicken I didn't like so much and the salmon was really bland. I don't think I would order the steak - but it was interesting to try it. (BTW - I am a fan of Fusian - it's my go-to for downtown sushi.)
Jimmy G's in the former Wah-mee spot down the road from the old Hustler shop.
Rivertown and Mt. Carmel (local craft beers) which is great to see.
The dessert was chocolate mousse and I have to say - it was amazing! I might go to Jimmy's just to have this again. This was just what mousse should be - thick and creamy but light and fluffy. Delicious!
Lastly, we headed to the Blue Wisp Jazz Club - which I didn't even know served food?!
Also - interesting to note - they have a whole lunch menu for under $8! Wings, sandwiches, etc... I'll definitely be in to check it out for lunch.
Then we popped into the Rosemary Clooney room to check out the band...
It's a good sized room with lots of seating - I would definitely head back for dinner and music. There is typically cover for this room but since we were visitors - we were allowed to pop our heads in for free.
I don't know that's it's quite my scene - but it's a fun evening. I also think it's a way for you to explore an area (be it downtown, Northside, whatever) in a less intimidating atmosphere. You don't have to figure anything out - it's all done for you.
Next week - they have two nights in a row of a Peddle Wagon Tacocrawl! Have you seen the Peddle Wagon downtown? Tickets are $35 each and you'll peddle your way to a few new taco places. It does sound fun - right? There are still tickets available - they have Tacocrawls next Tuesday May 28 & Wednesday May 29.
