RBI World Series: Post #3 (8/5/16)
Yesterday players participated in a workout day where they could showcase their skills. There are some seriously good ball players out here!
From goetta to Skyline Chili, Cincinnati certainly has its staples in terms of food to eat. My goal with this blog post is that I leave your mouths watering and your stomach growling, and a some solutions to fix that problem too.
Close to Urban Youth Academy:
Cincinnati’s best burger is a highly debated topic and has no doubt ended up in shouting matches with seemingly no conclusion. At the Urban Youth Academy we are fortunate enough to be located near some of the best in the city.
Gordo’s Pub and Grill (4328 Montgomery Rd)
I will start with what I believe is the best burger place in Cincinnati in Gordo’s Pub. Located less than 10 minutes from the academy Gordo’s is in an old brick building across from the Norwood library. Owner and head chef
Raymond Gordo, originally from Norwood, left the states to study culinary arts with the goal of one day returning to his hometown to open a restaurant. Specializing in gourmet burgers such as a surf n turf burger or my personal favorite, the Jean Robert (a burger topped with grape compote and goat cheese), there really is no way you can go wrong. Try the fried jalepeno poppers!
Quatman Cafe (2434 Quantman Ave.)
For all you purists out there Quatman Cafe is the place for you. Until about recently you had two op
tions for toppings at Quatman Cafe; Onion and Pickles. Quatman Cafe prides itself on a traditional burger where the meat is the star.
Another fantastic place less than 5 minutes away from the Urban Youth Academy.
Arthur’s (3516 Edwards Rd.) /Zips (1036 Delta Ave.)
Arthur’s and Zips are a little further out but certainly worth the trip. Arthur’s is located in Hyde Park about a 10
minute drive South bound on I-71. Eat at Arthur’s on a Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday for “Burger Madness” and all toppings are FREE!
Zips is located in Mt. Lookout just east of Hyde Park. A small place with great chili and even better burgers, Zips
is certainly one of the best. Try the burger with kielbasa on it!
Pleasant Ridge Chili (6032 Montgomery Rd.)
When thinking of Cincinnati food, chili usually comes to mind. Cincinnati Chili is unique in that it primarily acts as
a topping so do not be alarmed if you order and it looks a little different than you may have expected. Although PRC has fantastic chili, as well as many other deli type foods, the gravy cheese fries are in my opinion the staple of the joint. Open until 4:30 every day of the week, PRC is located 5 minutes east of the academy in, you guessed it, Pleasant Ridge.
Betta’s Italian Oven (3764 Montgomery Rd.)
A small Italian kitchen located just across the street from Xavier University often gets ranked as one of the best
pizza joints in the city. They have great Italian sausage sandwiches, pasta, and a dynamite Diavlo pizza (pepperoni and sausage with spicy sauce).
The Echo (3510 Edwards Rd.)
Think of the “Restaurant” in Seinfeld but in the quiet of
the suburbs. The Echo is a classic diner with diner food as well as some extreme creations like poutine with goetta (if you haven’t had it, try it) and banana peppers, or a fried chicken and waffle sandwich.
Bluebird Restaurant (4629 Montgomery Rd.)
A small diner located just down the street from the academy, Bluebird is cheap and delicious. Be sure to try a Bird’s Nest or if you are hungry grab yourself the bigger
version, the Eagle’s Nest. Both are off menu items so only frequent visitors know they exist. Both consist of a bed of hashbrowns with your choice of meat, eggs(your style) and gravy.
