On the Town
Here are a few shots from dinner at Local 127, the locavore-friendly, farm to table restaurant in downtown Cincinnati. The spot used to house Jean-Robert at Pigalle's.
The Waldorf Salad (top) was outstanding. Most such salads are heavy with mayo and totally unappealing. This used local bibb lettuce and crispy sliced apples; the best part though were the delicious toasted walnuts. A standout.
Below that is Chicken Two Ways, an entree that a fellow diner had. (That would be Dan Birdsong, a faithful reader and Political Science PhD at UC. Hi Dan!) Finally, my scallops entree is the bottom photo.
It was a retirement dinner for a fellow professor -- a political science colleague of my husband's -- and the meal definitely was a hit with all.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
