Lively Italian dining with fresh-baked focaccia, a generous menu and tables with enough seats for a small army. The Penne Rustica, which features shrimp or chicken, smoked prosciutto and penne pasta baked in crockery with a golden halo of cheese, is a hearty favorite.
Find this joint on the sunny side of the Ohio and find barbecue done right. From moist slices of brisket to a wonderfully smoky tofu sandwich, plus sides of collard greens and macaroni and cheese. Get there early to avoid the long lines.
Jack’s is the more casual, lounge area attached to sister restaurant Equus. Have a seat on one of the comfortable leather couches and order from a menu of dressed up American classics. Absolutely don’t miss the cocktails mixed by longtime bartender Joy Perrine.
