Wine Guy Bistro (Hyde Park)
Tuna entree at Wine Guy
Just a quick note: we had our best meal yet the other night at this restaurant in Rookwood Plaza, Hyde Park. Wine Guy Bistro is part of a small chain, based in Columbus OH. It's a restaurant, wine bar and retail store. Mostly, I've gone there for lunch. This week we had dinner and both ordered a seafood entree. My tuna (foreground in the photo) was an excellent dish, and healthy, too. My husband's salmon was a bit richer -- it sits atop a slab of potato au gratin and is topped by a buttery corn relish -- but he can handle the extra calories. I also had a couple of glasses of an interesting Austrian white wine, a blend of Riesling, chardonnay and Gruner Vetliner.
Bistro Grace has opened on Hamilton Avenue in the spot where Honey used to be. Here is the five-spice duck breast, quite tasty. Click on photo to visit the website. More to come on this welcome restaurant.
It's not ALL bad to have passed 60, but for the most part, it sucks. I hope not to rant and complain the entire time, but instead will make this a blog about the ups and (mostly) downs of encroaching old age. I'm still working, by the way, as a college prof at the University of Cincinnati. My other blog, www.healthyfoodies.blogspot.com, is about healthy eating.
