The Best Restaurants in Cincinnati According to some Magazine

I've had the annual top 25 restaurants in Cincinnati issue of Cincinnati Magazine for almost a month now. I've been looking at it, wondering what I should say about it. And to be honest, I don't think I have anything to say about it.

Here's last year's list.
I don't want to list this year's list, I'm worried about some sort of infringment. You should pick it up while the mag is still on newstands. I like this year's list. I can't disagree with anything on it, mainly because I have so many restaurants to go to still.

Okay, I lied, here are a few observations that I'll make about it:

*I'd be much more interested in going to the Brown Dog Cafe if it had a name that sounded at all appetizing. Brown Dog sounds like fecal matter.

*I always got the impression that Germano's was just a better quality Maccaroni Grill. I should check it out--You've just made my list.

*Nectar made its debut all the way up in the fourth spot. It was already on my list--Nectar, you've moved up my list.

When Cincinnati Magazine updates its (horrible) website with the most updated Top 25 list, I'll be sure to let you know.

How do you think they did? Anything you would've added or taken off?

Oh yeah, you need to check out Germano's--it's a great one, but in my opinion not as great as Barresi's in Deer Park. And say what you will about Brown Dog and the name, but the food is pretty darned good for an unassuming location in a strip mall next wedged between a Subway and Zaring Homes!

I have kind of an attitude about Brown Dog Cafe, but it's probably just because I didn't know what to expect. I ordered an $8 cheese plate appetizer, planning to share it with a few friends, and received a plate with three bite-sized chunks of cheese on it.

I think its strip-mall location and humble-sounding name works against them in that regard; I definitely did not go in expecting those kinds of prices.
