Cincinnati - Need rec's for casual dinner downtown
Hi, I live in Hamilton, but don't know downtown Cincinnati at all. A friend will be in town this Sunday, the 19th of Feb. We need a bar/restaurant with great food. What's your opinion of Washington Platform? Please, no high-end or chili restaurants. Thanks for any recommendations.

It's for dinner. Yeah, I'm finding out about the closed on Sunday thing. We have a car, so it doesn't have to be downtown. I was thinking about Newport/Covington. Any fun places with good food? We want to have a few drinks and a good meal. How about Mt. Adams, or any other surrounding areas?
The Sunday thing is a killer
I would not normally recommend a chain, but for sunday dinner+casual+not high end+bar+downtown cincinnati.......I am gonna go with Palamino which is just west of Fountain Square, second floor. Sit at the bar, and order form the bar menu. The bar menu is very reasonable and the flatbread pizzas are very good. I also recommend the cream of mushroom soup if it is available, outstanding.
My backup recommendation is quite a bit more casual: Tacqueria Mercado. You have one near you in Fairfield near Rt4 and Boymel. The one downtown is near the Library.
Give me another day of the week and I'd have better suggestions :-)
Not quite down town but up on Mt Adams is the Rookwood Tavern. It is in the old pottery factory. You can get a table in an old kilm or get own with a great view of N. KY. I thought the food was really good and in a cool chill atmosphere.
