We are bringing our son to Cincinnati to see a GI specialist and wanted to know where good eating is around Children's. Not fast food, but not Ruth's Chris. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!!

Here is a link to Mecklenburg's:

Also, there is The Forum Grill at The Vernon Manor Hotel:
Xavier University Hotels, Cincinnati Hotels, Discount Cincinnati Hotels - Vernon Manor Hotel, Cincinnati Ohio

And Martino's on Short Vine St. has good & inexpensive food:
Martino's On Vine

On Clifton & Ludlow Aves., there are numerous restaurants.

If you need more information on any of these places, post to let me know!

Oh, and BTW, Cincinnati Children's Hospital is one of the best children's hospitals in the world. Your child will be in good hands. Good luck!

I know Martinos owners well (sons father owns the place)...it is Italian and very comfortable place. Family owned and operated with lots of Pittsburgh favs served too (not to mention a couple dishes named after the young children in the family). They are located on Short Vine and they deliver too. I agree with Soozycue, Childrens Hospital is great, best wishes to your family.

Children's Hospital is practically next door to the zoo, one of the jewels in the Queen City's crown. Seeing all the animals (gorillas to tigers to manatees, on and on) during the day ought to provide a pleasant diversion from the business at hand. And, at night, the dazzling Festival of Lights will be there through Christmas. On the grounds there are numerous concession stands as well as a sit-down restaurant or two; they're run by Aramark so are nothing special, but it still beats McDonald's. Word to the wise: despite its close proximity to the hospital, DO NOT travel to the zoo on foot at any time. The neighborhood doesn't look that bad, but it's a hotbed of drug dealing and other unsavory stuff.

Ditto on the reco's for Clifton; just by traveling up Jefferson Ave (which rounds a bend to become Ludlow) you'll run across all sorts of possibilities. There's everything from Indian cuisine to Skyline Chili to choose from!

during the day, there is nothing to worry about walking to the zoo

Thank you all so much!! And thanks for the good words about Children's. It's been a long, rough year with our son so we're hoping for some good help! I don't know if we will be there long enough for a zoo trip, but we will definitely keep it in mind if we are.
