Cincinnati (West Chester) Thursday night

pete k Aug 27, 2013 09:05 AM

Hounds,

We will be making a pit stop Thursday night in Cincinnati and staying in the West Chester area. Can anyone recommend a decent option that will be family friendly with a two year old? I would prefer a place where I can get a decent beer/drink and food.
We are willing to try downtown if an option presents itself.

Tia..

        Ah! Got a perfect place for a family+beer. Blue Ash Chili in Mason. You can have your beer but there is plenty of comfortable seating, and many kid friendly menu items.

        It's the flip side of Aponte's ... Blue Ash Chili was profiled on Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins. It needed no makeover.

        It's not wildly imaginative food but it's a high quality place to eat. And you can try Cincinnati style chili there.

          If you are a fan of Restaurant Impossible, and willing to take one for the team, you might want to take a look at Aponte's, which was featured on the show very recently (I saw a rerun on last night, even)

          No, I have not been there, and am only mentioning it because of the show

          I figure all two year olds like spaghetti and/or pizza

            2 year old plus beer makes things a bit difficult.

            That said, I have never been to this place, but I regularly hear good things about it, and they have both your beer and a kids menu

              Thanks for the rec..
              Not the most exciting menu, but it could definitley work.
              I've noticed lots of Indian restaurants in the area, can worth checking out?

              We'll be driving through from Northen Kentucky through downtown if there are other options that worth trying.

                For Indian, I like Tandoor in Montgomery.

                  I didnt think an indian joint would work for a two year old - I was trying to keep both your requirements in mind

                    I would likely order takeout if it all other options failed.
                    Troy's seems to be the front runner right now.
