  • Review: ZBGB Gourmet Burgers & Bar
    conforming to the space constraints of most OTR buildings with about 90 seats total The front room features a bar and tables with a great corner view and the back room is adjacent to the open kitchen a nice bonus for winter warmth There s a clever coat rack array in the hallway double hooks intermixed with repurposed garden rakes and since there s not much space for coats in the dining area it s a good idea to use it We coaxed some recommendations from our server and decided to start with the carbonara mac and cheese 9 50 It s a mac and cheese take on spaghetti carbonara a classic preparation that starts with pancetta and ends with egg stirred in at the last moment so it can cook in the heat of the other ingredients ZBGB s version comes in a mini cast iron skillet with a very lightly cooked egg yolk perched perkily on top It would be great to have a spoon to do the mixing with but there were none in sight so we used our two dinner forks to mix and serve spilling about a quarter of the food in the process But the flavor was excellent very bacon y and rich and the crisp toasted breadcrumbs were a nice texture contrast ZBGB has a good selection of local and non local beers Tweet SHARE PRINT COMMENT FONT SIZE RATE Related content New Ideas on Tap Performances of a Stories Still to City Online Help Grammer s Embrace Six Feet Deep Fes Related to Cincinnati Eats ZBGB Zula Over the Rhine My friend went with her winter favorite MadTree s Thundersnow 7 25 but I decided to try a cocktail from the house specials The Warm Gun 10 sounded appealing mostly because of the word warm It s a bourbon old fashioned with Demerara syrup lemon zest and Angostura bitters They need to work on the proportions a little The amount of syrup they used made it much too sweet As we lingered with our drinks another server came by to clear the mac and cheese Here s where things get a tiny bit grim specifically in terms of utensils He picked up our plates laid our forks on the bare table and walked way Who does that Either bring fresh forks or leave the plates Even if the tables are brand new and shiny they are furniture they have cooties Our server returned with our burgers and the cutlery issues continued The burgers had been cut in half which was nice for sharing but since we had no knives we couldn t cut them into smaller pieces and they were huge Huge like I can t get my mouth around this huge If you don t want to go straight from the restaurant to the dry cleaners this can be an issue We started to eat and bits of bun toppings and meat were falling everywhere on our tiny table on our

  • Review: Tēla bar + kitchen
    to 20 000 cars pass that corner each weekday Since they wanted to provide what Nawrocki called pub grub executed at a much higher level than you can find anywhere nearby the site looked just about perfect The two men divvy up the work Nawrocki manages the kitchen and bar including beer and craft cocktails while Hunley runs the front of the house and keeps the wine list current Serving both lunch and dinner six days a week T ē la does steady business and really rocks on weekends We found that out when we turned up for a 7 p m 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 Tēla L R Hunley Doug Nawrocki Saturday reservation Our friends had claimed the table before we arrived so we didn t get to hang out in the invitingly designed bar It s separated from the dining room by a low wall and features a sofa and easy chair seating area by the front window behind that is a bar with about a dozen stools and a few high top tables I could imagine it as a comfortable place for lunch or to meet someone for drinks on the way home from work The drinks list includes a couple dozen beers in cans and bottles 2 50 for Budweiser and other mass produced domestics to 18 for large format Belgian style ale six handcrafted cocktails 9 each and 30 selected wines of which about a dozen are available by the glass 6 12 T ē la also offers house wines by the quartino or half carafe 9 17 and eight rotating beer taps with local and regional selections 7 10 My companions all went with draft beers and I tried a pretty good bourbon cocktail called C Brown mixed with apple cider maple syrup and a couple other ingredients served on the rocks Rock Roll cognoscenti will appreciate the numerous music references starting with the restaurant s name taken from a song title by the owners favorite band Phish At least four menu items contain sly nods to that band s playlist and I caught the Pulp Fiction allusion in their naming the burger the Royale with Cheese The pub grub slant is apparent at the top of the dinner menu with items such as pretzel nuggets chicken wings and poutine What brings this fare to a higher level might be such twists as preparing the wings as confit or adding pork belly to the poutine One of our party ordered the Pendery s Poutine 9 as his entrée and loved the combo that included hand cut fries cheddar cheese curds and housemade gravy along with a fried egg Three of us had salads ranging from a beet salad 9 50 to an iceberg wedge 6 or a mix based on Brussels sprouts 9 I liked the sprouts best although
