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.
Here's a way to find good places to eat when you're traveling. It's (appropriately) called Find Eat Drink, a website and an iPhone app. (I have a Droid but also an iPad, and hope it will work on the pad) Click on photo for link.
At the University of Cincinnati, I teach writing, reporting and research methods to journalism students as well as a course in mass communication.
I also write a "Healthy Foodie" column, with co-author Mary Ann Barnes, M.D., for the magazine Whole Living Journal, which is distributed in the Cincinnati metro area.
I'm a freelance food and travel writer, a dedicated exercise fanatic (have been since my 20s) and an avid gardener, reader, cook and moviegoer. I'm live in Cincinnati with my husband, George, and recently lost my sweet mother, who died peacefully at 91.
