Champagne wishin', caviar dreamin'
So we're getting some new "Italian" restaurants. (My sources tell me the quotes are warranted.) I'm none too excited about more pizza in Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky, especially if it's a chain. Mom-and-Pop pizza shops (you know the ones) are the best.What restaurants (chain or not) would you wish here if the Foodie Genie granted you a wish? I haven't had a great slice in a while so, right now, I would wish for The Original Gino's Pizza (located in Toledo and Maumee).
