If you have not been to Scotti's on Vine street, you are indeed missing out! My favorite Italian in the region!

Great thread by the way!

Okay - so I am new to the area (moved down here last year) and my husband and I want a GOOD smash-burger. You know - the type where they take a tiny little ball of ground beef -then smash it on the grill. Usually at these types of places you can get "singles, doubles, triples, quads and quints"..

In ann arbor - the place was Blimpys (awesome greasy thin little burgers). In chicago its the Billy Goat Grill/Tavern (place "Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger" SNL skit was based on)

Where is the place here?

Not sonic, not any other chain.. just some nice dive burger joint that will make me a triple with american cheese and some fresh fried onion rings!

Oh - I'm in lebanon and work in Westchester - but my husband and I have no problem going into the city - so anywhere in the metro Cinci area is open for suggestion!

Thanks!

Zip's in Mt Lookout. Really good burgers, kind of a pub atmosphere.

Pompilio's and the Green Derby in Newport come to mind.

Also, what was that deli restaurant on Montgomery Rd in Silverton - possibly the Marathon? Not sure if it's still there or not but they were serving great meat and cheese sandwiches way back in the 60's.

Yes! Zip's is amazing! What, haven't they been open for like a hundred years?


Also, Arthur's on Hyde Park Square has an amazing burger (all of this burger talk is making me want to curb my no-beef/ground beef diet )

Here's Cincy-Rise's list:

Best German - Black Forest
Best Indian - Ambar India
Best Italian - Scotti's
Best Thai - Teak
Best Chili - Skyline (can't help it ... runner up: Camp Washington)
Best Korean - Riverside (however I haven't tried the new place on 7th & Elm yet)
Best Japanese - Ko-sho (Is it still open? I haven't been there in a while)
Best Dessert - Black Raspberry Chip (Greaters on Ludlow)
Best Mexican - Rio Granda/Grand Fiesta (tie)
Best Seafood - Im not sure ... Can someone else recommend one for me?



Hope this helps, Briolat21!

Beluga, next to Arthur's, serves wonderful sushi, sashimi and other seafood.

There's also an incredible Asian restaurant between Hyde Park Square and Rookwood called Wild Ginger; recipes there are from such nations as Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Burma, Thailand, South China and Vietnam. It's located across the street from Penn Station, at Wasson and Edwards Rd.

Briolat ... Arthur's probably serves the best burgers in the city, especially Sun./Mon./Tues. with "burger madness." I'm also a fan of those served by Chicago Gyros (had their swiss and mushroom burger today) and Molly Malone's Irish Pub in Pleasant Ridge.

If coffee's your thing Pleasant Perk is on the same block as Molly's. If you go for Arthur's in Hyde Park, be sure to visit Awakenings Coffeehouse around the corner on the square.

Cincy-Rise ... insofar as Italian food is concerned, need I say anything more than Campanello's?

Default Greek??

Are there any good Greek restaurants (no cinci chili) that are not simply gyro fast food and/or geared towards late night college students? I would love to find a good one!!
