Capturing this quote from Michael Stern for future reference within this thread
 
from: https://roadfood.com/restaurants/sparkys/ 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Not that chili can’t be elegant, refined, or subtle; but it also has a way of inspiring vulgarity. Think of the braggadocio typical of chili cook-offs and the bombastic tirades by self-righteous aficionados who denounce a chili if it doesn’t fit their notion of the correct, one-and-only way to cook it."

Walt's Barbeque closed its last remaining location on Colerain earlier this week. The article in the Business Courier is behind a paywall, but they quote a Facebook post from owner James Riley saying that "circumstances outside of my control have lead to us closing." Also from the article, "Riley declined to comment further when reached by phone, saying he had been advised by his attorney not to talk about the closure."

The former Currito location in Florence is being renovated as a Pieology.

I know there have been some attempts over the last decade or so to run a russian-themed eatery in Cincinnati, and none lived long
 
I am hoping this newest one - in an ambitiously large former Bob Evans space near Kinds Island - will make it, sounds pretty good.

Snippet from that article:

The menu will include Russian dishes, like beef stroganoff, piroshki, fancy cabbage rolls and classic Russian soups like borscht as well as kebabs. They expect to cater to Russian customers, as Pivor did at Oasis. 
But there are also European dishes on the menu.
"Everything will be a spin on a classic," Saling said. She's working on recipes for oysters ceviche, burrata salad, crispy-fried whole fish, steak, vegetarian dishes, pork chops. She takes her inspiration from German, French and Italian cuisine.

I did Oasis once and was intrigued, but when I went back it was closed and looked like it was because of Board of Health issues.
 
I'd be curious to try this place.

Polly notes today that there is a Japanese izakaya style eatery opening in College Hill in late Spring 2018
 
https://www.cincinnati.com/story/life/2017/11/14/kiki-bring-japanese-college-hill/859529001/
 
A snippet:
 
The menu will be like that of a Japanese izakaya, which is a bar with food. A standing menu will feature dishes such as ramen, gyoza and Japanese fried chicken: shareable, casual food, but made from scratch by two trained chefs. Yuko's curry doughnuts will be on the menu.  Another menu will be seasonal and rotating, with sashimi, salads, dishes for vegetarians.

Taqueria Ramirez in Florence (corner of Burlington Pike and Houston Road) is opening a second location (also in Florence) on Dream Street in the former Molca Salsa location across from Chipotle.

A few weeks back, I found Taylor Pork Roll on sale at Jungle Jim's Eastgate and gave it a try, after seeing all the reviews here. I wasted $6.99. Incredibly salty and overly greasy version of Spam. Just my experience, YMMV.

If you want to try some of that Ohio Valley style pizza they've opened a DiCarlo's Original Pizza at the corner of Dixie Highway and Turfway Road in Florence.

Noticed Miami Style Tacos on US 42 in Florence between Ockerman Middle School and Hopeful Church Road today.  It doesn't look like they're open just yet so I'll have to see about giving them a try once they're open.

Progress is slow on the two new College Hill restaurants that were announced over a year ago. An employee at Tortilleria Garcia (whose original location on Springfield Pike will remain open) told me that the amount of work required for the second location's building was much greater than expected, and I haven't spoken with the Kiki folks (former co-owner and chef at KAZE), although I know they sometimes serve ramen at Northside Yacht Club. I have been looking forward to both, as there currently are no good dining options in the vicinity of Brink Brewing Co.

Well son of a seagull. Another classic bites the dust. Do you suppose they didn't get enough business to be able to keep their lease?

The way they made it sound on the local news was that their landlord wouldn't renew their lease.

Sad day for me. Taco Casa at Harper's Point is closed. 
 
Was going to stop today and the lettering had been removed from the building facing.

113 years is a heckuva great run...I wonder what factors drove the decision.

Hey TJ (and anybody else), food friend will be in town 23-25. What, besides chili, would be both tasty and representative of the Queen City’s cuisine. Around the DT, area, he says.
How far away is Over The Rhine?

Well, my favourite places there have always been The Turf Club (formerly Terry's Turf Club). I think they make the best burgers in the Midwest and their tenderloin chili is something else. For the best beer in Cincy, head over to Rhinegeist brewery. They cannot be beat! We have had some really good German fare at Hofbräuhaus Newport, across the river. Their beer is also really good, but I rather like their food. You can get there easily on foot from the downtown area. Lots to see and do in Newport.

Over-the-Rhine sits directly north of the Central Business District.

Over-the-Rhine is just north of downtown. The streetcar will take you from the Banks (on the Ohio River), to the north end of OTR. Take it all the way around, the first time, to see where you might want to jump on and off. It is $2 for the whole day. https://www.cincinnatibellconnector.com/how-to-ride/how-to-ride-2/route-and-station-stops
 
 
Stop at Hathaway's https://www.facebook.com/hathawaysdiner in the Carew Tower for goetta, a breakfast staple, similar to scrapple. There are three Skyline Chili restaurants downtown for Cincy chili. https://www.skylinechili.com/
 
 
Findlay Market is our farmer's market.http://www.findlaymarket.org/  Lots of great stuff to check out there. It is on the streetcar line. Just north of there is the brewery district, if food friend is into that.http://otrbrewerydistrict.org/  Rhinegeist Brewery has become regionally popular. Most breweries offer food.
 
High end/fine dining - Jeff Rubyhttps://www.jeffruby.com/restaurants   and Jean Robert deCavel restaurants. https://www.jrcincy.com/about
 
 
Holtman's Donuts. Awesome. https://www.holtmansdonutshop.com/otr-shop
 
The Eagle is one of my faves, next door to Holtman's. https://www.eaglerestaurant.com/
 
And Scotti's for Italian in a unique century old restaurant. http://scottiscincinnati.com/
 
 
Also on the streetcar line is The Bay Horse Café (625 Main Street). Historic Cincinnati bar with decent foods. https://www.facebook.com/bayhorsecafe  I am there Tuesday-Friday 11am-4:30-5pm. I am a wealth of information about my city (if I do say so myself - ).

The guidance provided by soozy, ghaz, and rootbeer man are excellent
 
Findlay is best on the weekend days as more food stalls open
 
Ft Camp Washington Chili is a superb place to get Cincinnati-style chili, and they have goetta as well, and it is only a few miles from downtown by cab.  I would recommend this place over Hathaways if your friend is ok with paying some cab fare
 
Jeff Ruby's is very, very pricey - You can get out of there for about 50 bucks if you order a small steak and water and nothing else.  A more typical per person is around double that.  That said, it is easily my favorite splurge in town.
