Mechanical bull, anyone?

Cadillacs: Hank Williams died in one, country singers write songs about them, and a guy in Texas has buried a whole collection of them in the desert, the original Cadillac Ranch. You can see a 1959 Cadillac, outrageous tailfins and all, perched above your head over the entrance to Cadillac Ranch, a new restaurant at the corner of Sixth and Walnut. It opens tomorrow.
This is something new for downtown Cincinnati: a country-themed restaurant and bar, with a mechanical bull and a menu of barbecue, steaks, overstuffed sandwiches, pulled pork, along with salads, salmon, pasta. There are lots of big-screen TVs, and big garage doors on the 6th St. side. They open to create a large outdoor dining patio, with firepits and more TVs. Music is new country mixed with classic rock from the '70s and '80s. This is the second Cadillac Ranch restaurant; the first is in Nashville.
The atmosphere is family-friendly and casual during the day and dinner; after 10 p.m. it's for age 21 and over. Open daily from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Sunday brunch from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. Open to the public tomorrow at 8 p.m., then starts regular hours on Friday. 513-621-6200
