  • Review: Ché
    Latin rich in color and wood We were seated just inside the door across from the bustling kitchen but the space still felt settled and accommodating We both studied the menu for all of four seconds before admitting to each other that we wanted to try each and every empanada in the name of research of course However in order to round out our meal we also each ordered a salad I opted for the Rucula 9 with arugula fresh Parmesan and lemon olive oil vinaigrette While there was seemingly not much to that one it had bite a bite worth keeping around It stayed and functioned as a palette cleanser between empanadas My date the one who was awake and not the little tot wiggling in my lap ordered the Argentine Grilled Romaine 9 with grilled romaine lettuce bacon heirloom tomatoes and grilled crostini topped with gorgonzola dressing This was one creamy BLT Her plate was clean within minutes Then without any sense of delay our empanada spread was placed in the center of our table There was no specific order or plan of empanada attack we simply worked our way through each one in whatever serendipitous order they appeared on the plate Tweet SHARE PRINT COMMENT FONT SIZE RATE Upon finishing however I realized the easiest way to talk about these empanadas is to group them into three categories cheese meat as a focal point and those that surprised for one reason or another The three cheese empanadas were basically quesadillas with an additional ingredient One had baby spinach De Espinaca 3 one had sautéed onion Queso y Cebolla 3 and the other was a classic ham and cheese Jamon y Queso 3 Of the three the ham and cheese hit that familiar and tasty spot Then there were the meat centric nadas The De Carne 3 with cumin and paprika spiced beef was the most promising and comforting It was heavy without being daunting Then there was the Spicy Smoked Pork Belly 4 with braised pork belly caramelized onion and cheese This one was super serious as most pork belly is But the final category is really worth chatting about The real surprises of the night came from the Shrimp Scampi 4 with sautéed shrimp tossed with garlic and herbs mozzarella and provolone I assumed I d love this one because it included my lifeblood shellfish and I was right The Buffalo Chicken 4 with spicy chicken mozzarella provolone and creamy gorgonzola dipping sauce surprised us both but for different reasons I assumed it would be my least favorite because buffalo is typically a flavor I don t like but this buffalo chicken wasn t heavy on the sauce And it was for that reason that my friend thought it would be her favorite but it wasn t because it wasn t Frank s forward At the end of the day it just tasted like hot temperature wise not kicky melty cheese with chicken all wrapped up

  • Review: Americano Burger Bar
    famous Americans is that you Mary Pickford Once inside look up to find an American flag ceiling installation comprised of 3 770 beer cans The restaurant used Bud Light Budweiser Coors and Miller Lite cans to create the awe inducing spectacle finally a purpose for mediocre domestic beers And in case you didn t notice the bar a two foot glowing sign that says Bar is propped behind it Stop here for one of 13 beers on draft mostly local and regional brews About 10 tables line the bar area and a foosball and shuffleboard table separate it from a second dining area to encourage the American tradition of a little healthy competition Make sure you take a trip to the men s room I m told the urinals are carved out of a beer keg The women though don t get anything fun like that The theme continues into the menu which also fuses food and drink from other cultures According to the Pietosos because our country is a melting pot of traditions they ve taken the American staples we all love and elevated them with international flavors Tweet SHARE PRINT COMMENT FONT SIZE RATE Related content Revolution Rotiss Calle Cantina Re Dirt A Modern Ma Preserving the Ha Farming in a Stri Related to Cincinnati Eats Americano Burger Bar Cristian Pietoso 84 51 Centre Building For example in addition to burgers you can order German or Chicago style hot dogs Russian slaw New England clam chowder paprika topped corn on the cob and classic starters like chips and guac wings nachos beer cheese and fried grits We tried the beer cheese dip 6 melted and made with one of the aforementioned mediocre domestic beers and served in a circular iron skillet accompanied by a giant crunchy pretzel As far as warm beer cheese goes it had a mildly grainy texture and didn t really stand out from other cheese dips The fried grits 4 were better perfectly rectangular sticks similar to polenta with a tangy lemony aioli dipping sauce Both dishes came out piping hot like burn the roof of your mouth hot which is of course much better than tepid To combat all the carbs we also tried the farm wedge salad 8 not served hot obviously with a spicy buffalo blue cheese dressing that elevated the dish In the drinks department they have root beer on tap and a sour beer bomber from Athens Ohio s Little Fish brewery for 36 You can t get it anywhere else around here so it s worth the splurge For cocktails the sangria is made with brandy and served in a mason jar it s also available by pitcher For happy hour you get 2 off drafts 3 6 p m during the week Considering a High Life normally runs you 3 it s only 1 during happy hour making it the best deal in town Now about their burgers which is the reason you ll want to come
