I have been dying to go back to Allure
in Montgomery ever since my first visit the week they opened. It’s been over a year and I had a Restaurant.com gift certificate burning a whole in my pocket!
So I gathered some friends and off we went. Now – if you’re not familiar with Allure – it’s a very “cool” place. Have you been to Go Bananas? Well it’s in that same “mall” area. It’s a very cute area – lots of little buildings, with lakes and the feeling of a neighborhood. I wish I lived somewhere like that!

For those of you that don’t know – Restaurant Week is one of my favorite Cincinnati events. I am a foodie after all and who doesn’t like a deal!
What is Restaurant Week? Well, the Greater Cincinnati Independents are a local organization of independent restaurants and they have organized this event for the past few years.
New York, San Francisco, etc… all have this tradition and it’s fabulous! Local restaurants offer a 3 course meal at a bargain! The menu typically offers 2-3 choices for each of the courses and it’s usually a catchy price – this year – $26.09.

I’ve been dying to try Cilantro
in Clifton for over a year!
It’s on Clifton Ave right near the campus – hidden amongst a streetful of random storefronts.
We stopped by on a night when they weren’t busy so we got to chat with the owner. He was very fun and told us all about the restaurant and the food.
Unfortunately – it was over a week ago and I don’t remember what he told me! haha
The food is all very traditional and he’s run Cilantro for about 5 years.
The most popular dish is the Pho (pronounced Fuh). It’s a traditional beef stock (beef – that’s the key!) with veggies and your selection of protein.
