InCaHoots and Zino's Firehouse on Short Vine by U.C. had the best menu selections, music and overall vibe for casual dining. Upscale: The Maisonette, hands down.

Maisonette was a gut punch, loved that place. Schiavone's in Middletown was outstanding Italian food as was Isgro's in Hamilton

Almost forgot - the Ohio Deli in Columbus. It's been over two years, and no word on whether the owners will attempt to bring it back, so I'm assuming it's gone for good.

I have two:

the Town Crier Inn, " On U,S. Route 20, a mile east of Elyria, Featuring Early American Atmosphere abd serving the finest Beef, Chicken<and Ham from our open Buffet. Steaks broiled over Open Hearth." If you never got to eat there before it closed in the late 60's you missed an unbelievable experience that I have never found anywhere else. You have to be old to remember this wonderful restaurant

Another place Was Lenard Restaurant in Strasburg, Ohio and then later moved to New Philadelphia. Famous for it's steaks and pork chops and were they good. Owner died at a young age and the restaurant closed.

Oh, I so remember how taking a girl to Short Vine for a Zinover and acoustic guitar music at Zino's made a guy look sophisticated for just a few bucks.

Unfortunately, they do not. I've tried it a few times hoping the same thing, but it's not even close to the goodness I experienced at Gooeyz

I actually liked La Normandy better as it was more casual and also had great food. But for sure The Maisonette had the finest food in Cincinnati. I just found it a bit stuffy.

Pigalls was damn good as well. Cincinnati had more mobile stars per capita than New York, Chicago, Cleveland or Columbus at that time.

Ahh you are correct on San Marcos.

The Soup & Sandwich joint was Andres.

Still miss Godfather Pizza (even though a chain).

Should have been on my list. Owner had put a note on the door, "thanking" the guy that broke in and busted up the place and saying he'd had enough. I'd hoped he move past it, definition of neighborhood. Dark as a dungeon, it'd take 5 minutes for my eyes to adjust. Generous and homemade, the Bishop having a beer, great place.

Zunardo..I agree with Kahiki! Great food and awesome building. Remember the 10 pound Goldfish swimming in the pond by the entrance?


Zantigo! If you've never had a Taco Burrito from Zantigo, you missed out!

True Story:
My evening Sociology Prof (Lopez?) had gotten roped into escorting some Chinese dignitaries coming to campus. In a panic, he asked the class where to take them. Of course I suggested Packos. A few others were mentioned but the Chinese apparently had actually heard of Packos, so hesitant (a couple in the class openly objected: safety), we loaded up two vans with Chinese and people from the class and headed across the river. You know that area is dark. Imagine how dark with Packos closed. No one had bothered to check.

So we're parked in the St Stephan's lot, the Prof is in a panic and I see some light streaming under the door of the Tavern. I tell them, give me a minute. Ran over, knocked on the door and they were open. Asked the guy at the bar if it'd be okay to being a bunch of Chinese in, EVERYONE was all for it. By time I crossed the road, convinced the Prof and classmates it would be safe and got back, the people in the bar had already pulled tables together and had appetizers, skins, rings... headed to the tables. We didn't pay for a thing.

The hockey on the walls, the crowded feel, the others in the bar, most with teeth, one who'd fought in Korea, everyone made them real welcome.... Prof said the Chinese said it was the highlight of their trip, they saw real America.

I could never figure how that place was so different than the place next door (Tuckers)?

You had every walk of folk in Consaul. One night after a softball game I had a beer with an Oregon Clay HS teacher, shot pool (3 ball) with Lucky Thames, and had a nightcap with two Storm players (one who married the bartender and still lives in Oregon). For whatever reason things never got out of hand in there and everyone always seemed to have a good time.

Toledo. No Godfather's in NWOhio in 30 years. Vacationed a couple times in Surfside Beach, SC and they had one which made me happy (and bloated).

Ponderosa. Took the kids there a lot when they were young. Best family place around for the money. You could get a dinner for $7.49 which included the all you can eat buffet.
Did not know 356th closed.

How come Golden Corral always shows up in the local "police blotter" piece, but Ponderosa never did ? Does GC put something in the pudding that makes people want to throw down ? It's kind of the same place....

Change of name really. The new place essentially ripping off the Myles way of making pizza, whether by permission or not, I don't know. Sucky name run by the people who own Trotters.

Just looked it up, sure enough you're right.

Anytime I'm in Lima it's usually "hamburg, pickle on top, makes the heart go flippity flop."

Not that all of their stuff was outstanding but there were a couple of things on the menu
that were very good (Steak El Paso?).

True also of the Ground Round...

Most definitely an impressive date back in the day. The Zinovers were the best....LaRosa's calzones pale in comparison, for sure.
