"High-end" Mexican food
So it seems we're getting another restaurant downtown. I love the name: Nada. But the food better be otherworldly good because the negative puns would be endless...I hope that, in this case, "high-end Mexican" translates to authentic cuisine on pretty plates in an urbane space. It's too often that high-end is code for "mucho dinero y poca comida."Whatever the case, it would be fabulous to have a Rick Bayless/Topolo-esque hot spot in Cincinnati. Gotta love a town where you can get a phoney coney (hold the hot dog) and langosta al ajillo, all within a few blocks.
