What to Get at Grassroots & Vine?

Recently I was invited to visit Grassroots & Vine in Fort Thomas - it's only about 10 minutes from downtown Cincinnati so it was the perfect spot to grab a bite with a friend after work on my way home. Our meal was provided but all opinions are my own. 

Grassroots & Vine is really interesting - it's a bar, a gift shop, a wine shop, a restaurant and more. It's a very cute place and they are super focused on local products and vendors. They have live music sometimes as well.

If you haven't visited Fort Thomas - then you need to! There are so many cute shops and restaurants. They also have a great patio on the side of the building - which I know it's not patio weather at the moment - but we also know that we'll get 55 degree day soon that'll feel like August!

They have a full bar with wine, craft beer, bourbon and wine slushies! I grabbed a Rhinegeist Bubbles - which is a Rose Ale - and it's pink and bubbly - so it's my favorite drink ever! 

At G&V, the Lunch Menu is actually much larger than the Dinner Menu but they're flexible and can make most of the items at either time. This is the Grassroots & Vine salad ($10) with greens, toasted pecans, tart apples, red onion, goat cheese, sunflower seeds and a house vinaigrette.

The salad was pretty good but I could have used a stronger vinaigrette. There were a lot of components and we enjoyed it. We shared it between the two of us and it was a good size for that.

I got the charcuterie and cheese board ($18) with two meats, one artisan cheese, olives, pickles, grained mustard and veggies. It was a good assortment - I would like a couple of cheeses since I'm not a huge brie fan - but it was pretty good and there was a lot on the plate.

Kelly got the Margherita Flatbread ($10 - one of their vegetarian options). You can add roasted chicken for $3 as well. This was really large for an individual flatbread. I think most of their items are meant for sharing - which we did - since they are a drinks & food kind of place. It's topped with basil pesto, fire roasted tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella. This was pretty good - but not our favorite flatbread that we've had.

I decided to splurge on their special Honeysuckle Cake ($6) - the cake is made by Sweet Ace Cakes and is their take on a Hummingbird Cake. It's a spice cake with a nice thick cream cheese icing. This was delicious!!!

Why Should You Go? If you are looking for someplace to have a drink after a long day and grab some apps with your friends - Grassroots & Vine is perfect! And they have a ton of items to make artisan gift baskets - which is great with the holidays coming up!
