Specials at Mitchell's Fish Market
If you want a healthy meal before or after the movies at Newport on the Levee -- or at any of the seafood chain's 16 other locations -- Mitchell's Fish Market is your best choice. (My last name is Mitchell, but I have no connection.) In addition to an extensive regular menu, daily and weekly specials provide plenty of options. The $19.95, three-course special is hard to beat. Although we didn't see it on the weekend menu, our server was happy to offer this special when we asked. You get a choice of a house or caesar salad, one of three seafood entrees, and a dessert. I took the deal, and picked the house salad, grilled steelhead (somewhere between salmon and trout) with potatoes and asparagus, and creme brulee. My husband had a salmon special (also pictured) that was accompanied with sticky rice and steamed Asian veggies. We like their cocktail, beer and wine choices, too.
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.
