Seemed "out of character" for the business, so I hope the negative publicity had no lasting effect. The hotel it's perched atop was first known as the Quality Inn.
I remember it being a Quality Inn too. Never ate there though.

It was called Quality Central because they had a Quality Norwood. And it was famous among my contemporaries because it was the only downtown motel in the area where you could park in the garage and go straight to the room levels. So if you were headed to a motel with someone who should not be accompanying you, the trip could all be done without walking through the lobby. As far as I'm concrned thats what put Quality Central on the map. Oh, and the revolving restaurant wasn't bad either.

Zinos invented the Zinover. Baked pizza pocket with Italian filling. An innovation at the time.

Default Milford and Loveland

Remember Parkmoor and Minnie Pearl's Chicken in Milford?
How about The Butterfly, later Lincoln Restaurant in Loveland (corner of Union Cemetery and Montgomery)??

The revolving restaurant back in the day was Stouffer's Cincinnati Tower. Nowadays it is called 360. One of only two revolving restaurants in the US - the other is in Las Vegas.

Johnny Bench's Home Plate is now a TGI Fridays by Northgate Mall. I love it because the building is shaped like a home plate.

Does anyone remember the Red Barn chain of restaurants? I know there were a few around Hamilton and Fairfield - they are shaped and painted like, well, Red Barns.

Oh, you got me with the Wiki attack! Let me correct what I said - it is the largest revolving restaurant East of Las Vegas.

There, much better.
