As we begin the sixth month of our little labor of love, we’re overwhelmed-and I say this often-with support and love from the community. With that in mind, I’m really excited to announce that we’re expanding 513{eats} far beyond the magazine and blog. Due to your requests, and our desire to always share the finest of our talented food community, we will be adding some really sensational elements to our repertoire.
Cincinnati has the most gifted food professionals, and when we’ve featured them, you’ve asked to meet them. We’ve been on delicious road trips, and you’ve asked to come along. Best of all, you’ve told us, “it always looks as if you’re having so much fun, you have the best job in the world.” Well, we are, and we do, and we want to share our good times with you. We have a lot planned. Are you hungry?
So let’s go! First up, a really superb Summer Wine Series at Clifton’s La Poste Restaurant. Their wine team led by sommelier Bryant Phillips is unsurpassed, and their wine cellar features over 1000 different labels. Chef Dave Taylor’s cuisine is seasonally based, wine focused, and exquisite. The goal of this series is to take you from neophyte to expert in four delicious and fun-filled nights. If wine lists leave you confused, overwhelmed, and intimidated, or even if you’re an expert but you’d like to meet new culinary minded friends, join us for the party.
