Simply Stunning. My entree and dessert of salmon on a bed of couscous, and crème Brule, were just as spectacular. Also the wine selection was very small, but I was told that they will be expanding it before the weekend. With entrees between 12-24 dollars it is probably the most affordable of Jean Robert’s places. I honestly can’t wait to go back and sit on the terrace.

Voting for CityBeat’s “Best of Cincinnati” ends in a few days, March 1 to be exact, and BuyCincy would love to have your vote for “Best Blog.” However, we are not just here to shamelessly plug ourselves. There are plenty of local businesses out there that could use your support. So, keep in mind your favorite local shops when voting – an award like this won’t even register for the big chains, but it means the world to many a small business.

BJ Foreman’s great-grandfather was a jeweler to the Czar of Russia. When he moved to America he taught his son Boris how to make jewelry and together, in 1913, they founded The Litwin Company. Although the company is now known as Boris Litwin Jewelers, the Cincinnati business has since been handed down four generations of the family line, and they still continue to sell unique and quality custom jewelry.
As if their history and their hand crafted Cincinnati charms weren’t enough to prove that this business is rooted in Cincinnati pride, former Cincinnati Post art critic and current owner, BJ Foreman has now expanded Litwin’s repertoire to include the works of artist Diana Duncan Holmes. Holmes reworks digital snapshots of Cincinnati ranging from the famous to the less seen treasures (take for instance the back of 8th Street buildings.) The photos are then layered on wallpaper leaving an antiqued touch with just a hint of the wallpaper patterns showing through.
