Restaurant Review: 6-1-Pho

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: 6-1-Pho

6-1-Pho’s name is cute and clearly soup-centric, but its meatballs steal the show. The corner stop in Clintonville is regularly packed full of customers learning the ropes of ordering at the fledgling fast-casual business. Like a Chipotle (et al.), 6-1-Pho features a cafeteria line where you can view your eating assembly options, before making any […]

Restaurant Review: Cataland Kuzina

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Cataland Kuzina

Cataland Kuzina isn’t particularly new, and it’s not particularly conveniently located -unless you happen to find yourself near the north end (and “end” means “dead-end”) of Hamilton Road. There, you’ll find the establishment in a lone strip mall surrounded by endless waves of track housing. But a tip on the CU discussion boards suggested that […]

If you get there at exactly the right moment, you might have a seating option – but it’s close quarters indoors. The bulk of its real estate is an expansive kitchen and prep area with an order […]

Restaurant Review: The Carvery

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: The Carvery

Sometimes things are divinely inspired, in concept… but disappointing in delivery. Car alarms, for example; or diet caffeine-free Mountain Dew. The concept behind The Carvery is so fantastically wonderful — fresh carved meats stacked and served on artisan bread, it’s hard to believe that the actual reality could live up to the conceptual perfection.

Restaurant Review: Danny’s Deli

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Danny’s Deli

If you’re building a collection of places to hit during BLT season, Danny’s Deli needs to be on the list. First, because it does BLTs in purist style: toasty bread with layer on layer of crunchy bacon slices, tomatoes, and tender lettuce leaves dressed with a whisper of mayo.
