I'm in Blue Ash and a new restaurant opened at the Watson Brothers/Apsara location. Big patio across from the muni airport. Haven't tried the restaurant (Firehouse, I think) yet. The Cactus Pear in Blue Ash has a back patio that faces the stage. If you can get a table you can catch the Friday night summer concerts. There are some restaurants at Newport on the Levy that have river front views. The food was average but the beer was cold.
