If you want cheap fast Vietnamese there is always Cilantro right across from Hughes high school.  The Beef Vermicelli noodle bowl is delicious, about the size of two meals and six dollars.

Since we now know that they will be opening up a Oceanaire Seafood Room in the 580 Building, I'd assume most people want to see what this place looks like (like me).

 

Here you go ...

This move is understandable...doesn't Jean Robert live in Covington??

 

Yes I think I read somewhere that he lives in nky.  I ate at PhoParis right after it opened - it was pretty good - but the location back off the street behind a parking lot made it feel very (sub)urban - unlike JeanRo and Pigalls dt.  Sounds like the new location will be better.

580 Building?  I need more info.

 

From the Enquirer:

 

"By late 2007 or early 2008, an Oceanaire Seafood Room is expected to open at Sixth and Walnut streets in the revamped 580 Building."

Actually, the Dixie Terminal also says "Great American Insurance" on the south side of it as well.  ;)

On my way downtown this morning I noticed the old Buskin Bakery on 8th St. had a new sign outside indicating that it was going to be a Mexican restaurant.  Anybody know anything about this??

I believe Jalapenos was opening a downtown location but I don't remember where.  It is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the region so I am happy.  We go to the one in Madeira often.

The one at 8th and Walnut is Javier's, which is moving from a much smaller location on Court St.  It has been a popular lunch spot for years.

 

I have heard really good things about the food at Potluck in Northside.  Now that they have seating, I may just go check it out!

 

Edit: Jalapeno's is going in at 7th and Elm, where Aioli used to be.  It should be opening soon.

BAH

I just went to Paula's in Findlay Market & it was closed.

I heard they were going to open a place downtown but I just figured there would be 2 of 'em.

I guess they just moved ?

They were closed?  That's a surprise.  I was just at the Findlay Market location on Saturday.  The one on 4th St. is now open.  It's between Walnut and Vine.

Deli & soup & sandwich shop

They have some unique stuff.

I got a tub of homemade Guinness mustard there. I only got it because I saw them making it there (and I like Guinness). It was ok.

Tell me more about Paula's Cafe, I have never eaten there.

 

The turkey chili is very good.  I also tried the turkey sandwich, and it has real slices of turkey on it.  :)  None of that fake processed stuff.

^^Sounds interesting.  Best of luck to them in that space!  It's now on its third restaurant since Andiamo opend there about 4 or 5 years ago.  It is like the Oakley equivalent of the spot in Hyde Park square where Red is now.  There have been 5 different restaurants there since I move to Cincinnati in 99. 

 

As for Paula's I can vouch for the turkey chili and the cuban  :-D

Javiers, a mexican place at 8th and Walnut looks like it just opened up. (previously the location was a busken)

 

Both Paula's are open, but the one at Findlay is closed for repairs this week.

 

Cafe de Paris expanded their menu at Garfield Place.  They also opened a second location with more dinner options in Hyde Park.

 

Kaldi's now has panini sandwiches and $1.50 pints Christian Morlien Hefewiezen all the time.

 

The Gyspy hut in Northside is open on Blue Rock Road.  It is a great dive bar with $2 pints of Olde Stlye.

^ Very nice to read, the Enquirer only covers closed down restaurants.  I learned a new word her in Germany, I will use it in a sentence:

 

"The Enquirer is sheizer."

Burgers and crab cakes coming to former Redfish

Cincinnati Business Courier - 4:57 PM EST Friday

I think Sully's was one of the restaurants discussed as having interest in Fountain Square.  I'm glad to here they chose this place because the Square certainly will be fine whether Sully's is there or not.
