More Graeter's for everyone
I missed this when Graeter's announced it back in December, but they are opening a new retail store a block from Newport on the Levee, at 342 Monmouth St. in Newport (corner of Fourth and Monmouth), in the historic (1869) James W. Taylor Jr. Bank Building. The public grand opening is August 6 (next Monday). Score one for Northern Kentucky! That actually makes four Graeter's on that side of the river: a second one for Newport, one in Fort Mitchell and a new store in Florence. The new Newport spot even has a walk-up order window!
And Graeter's plans a return to Fountain Square to add to all the downtown Cincinnati hubbub that's bringing the streets back to life after 5 p.m. It's supposed to open in August, but we're checking the dates there.
And I never realized that Graeter's was made in two-gallon batches only. That gives me greater respect for it! (Sorry, I'm a UDF fan.) But I will have to give Graeter's butter pecan another try.
