There are so many new restaurants in Cincinnati it can definitely be overwhelming - especially downtown. I feel like I could eat somewhere new every day!
Sweet Greens: cucumbers, green apples, pears, lemon, kiwi, lime, spinach, celery
Audrey did get a bottle of the juice and said it was delicious - I would have liked to have tried it - but felt a little weird about asking for a drink of an $8 juice! There should be a class on why it's good where we get to try it.
Chopped: corn, haricot vert, purple cauliflower, local Lucky Penny Farm goat cheese, bacon, avocado, pecans, mission fig, roasted beets and house vinaigrette
Audrey - aka Cold Pressed Hussy - went for the Chopped Salad and really enjoyed it. They have a lot of ingredients in their salads which I really like - I hate to get something I could just as easily make at home. It's also served with a fresh slice of ciabatta bread.
Chicken Club: pulled rotisserie chicken, bacon, avocado, havarti cheese, tomato, lettuce, house aioli, 16 Bricks ciabatta
Maplewood Burger: ground chuck, short rib and tenderloin, Vermont white cheddar, house pickles, iceberg lettuce, grilled tomato, mayonnaise, 16 Bricks sesame bun
I got the burger and am really not sure I made the best choice. It was fine - but in a city of decadent burgers - it's not on the top of any list. I'm also not the biggest fan of grass fed beef. Grain = flavor. That said - I liked all the toppings and that they went all out with quality ingredients.
Provencal Potato Salad: tri-color potato, grainy mustard, haricot vert, white wine, shaved fennel
For my side I chose the potato salad - I didn't want to just go with fries. When I think of potato salad - I do think of it cold but when I saw this - I almost expected it to be warm. It was a little too raw for me and seemed a little underseasoned.
Why Should You Go? If you like cold pressed juice and organic stuff - then definitely check it out. It just wasn't my kind of place - the food was fine - I just didn't love anything and it was a bit pricey. I do think it is better than Cheapside Cafe - which it sort of reminds me of.
