Restaurant week is coming...

Maybe you've heard about restaurant weeks in other cities. Restaurants unite and offer deals on (usually) prix fixe meals, at a heckuva good price.
Well, Cincinnati is getting a Restaurant Week, as Polly reported today:
"Greater Cincinnati Independents, a group of local restaurants, will
sponsor a Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week Sept. 4-8.
The 25 restaurants
in the group will each offer a three-course prix fixe dinner for $25.07. (It's
25 restaurants, and the year is '07.)"
So far, these restaurants are participating: Andy's Mediterranean Grille, Behle Street Café, Bella Luna, Brown Dog Café, Daveed's at 934, deSha's American Tavern and Grille, Encore Bistro and Bar, The Grand Café, Hugo, Jean-Robert at Pigall's, Jimmy D's Steakhouse, Kona Bistro, Mesh, Mike & Jimmy's Chophouse Grille, Nicholson's, O'Bryon's Irish Pub, One Restaurant and Lounge, Pho Paris, Polo Grille, Pompilio's, The Pub at Crestview Hills, Red and Universal Grille.
We'll post more details as we know them, or you can check out the restaurant group's Web site. Make your reservations today!

Fellow Foodies: I'm cleaning out my ridiculously extensive cookbook collection and I have a box of cookbooks and back issues of Bon Appetit and Gourmet that need to go to a foodie home. Contact me at literarygirl2004@yahoo.com if anyone wants them. I live in the Riverside area of Covington.
