Day 319: Dine in a bank
July 17, 2011 § Leave a comment
Before today, the extent of food consumption I’ve had in financial institutions had been limited to eating peppermints and fun-size Snickers in Bank of America.
But tonight we enjoyed wine and gourmet entrees on the second floor of Hyde Park Savings Bank, now more commonly known as the restaurant Teller’s.
For food we went halfsies and split a cold salmon sandwich with bacon, guacamole and dill aioli on herbed flatbread, as well as a BBQ pork belly sandwich with horseradish cheddar on focaccia (along with a side of zucchini fries).
I think I’m becoming a pork belly addict, as I also had it for breakfast this morning at the restaurant Honey, where we devoured these delicious dishes on an elegant back patio.
Turns out that Cincinnati is quite the foodie city. It feels like, aside from apartment-hunting, we spent most of the weekend eating. I think I was a food critic in another life. Though of the places we’ve eaten of late, I don’t have much to say in terms of criticism.
