Food Scene
Farm-to-fork, fresh ingredients and amazing interior and fabulous roof terrace. Chef Chris Burns has pulled together a great staff, wonderful decor, perfect location and fabulous food. Be sure to try the gnocchi app and the salted honey pie for dessert. Open for dinner except Mondays and brunch Saturday and Sunday. Amazing quiche and the chicken and waffles are a show stopper! DO NOT MISS their newly-opened rooftop bar, Yonder by Commonwealth. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturdays it is the hottest brew place in the village.

Fantastic lunches, dinners and brunch. Only time they're closed is Monday nights. Their fried-green tomatoes are legendary. ALWAYS a great meal at Otto's.

Chef Stephen Williams is a cullinary genius. Dinner every night except Sunday. Menu updated frequently, as locally sourced product is in season. The only Northern Kentucky Restaurant to consistantly appear on Cincinnati Magazine's 10-best list. Don't miss this one.

Straight out of New Orleans, this creole/jazz-themed restaurant is a local treasure and icon. Great food and on Thursday thru Saturday, live jazz. Truly a must stop, even if it's just for a pre-dinner cocktail/appetiser or a nightcap, it's not to be missed. Dee's filet is amazing and don't miss the "boule de neige" dessert! It's mind-blowingly delicious.

Fantastic Burgers and great friend and slaw but the bad news is... they STILL allow smoking. So unless that doesn't bother you, you may want to skip this one OR plan a day/night when you can sit at a table outside.

In the lobby of the Hotel Covington, which formerly housed Coppin's Department Store, this place has fantastic ambiance, great drinks and terrific food. It's definitely worth trying for breakfast/brunch/lunch or dinner. It's a great see-and-be-seen location with a lively bar scene.

One the weekends, if you go for brunch, get one of their potato crisps (I like the Southwest Crisp). These are amzing, topped with a fried egg. Be sure to tell the server you want them super super super super super super super super super super crispy--there's nothing worse than a mushy-potato "crisp"... the name says it all and those lazy cooks will try to shortcut it and... well... emphasis on CRISP when ordering.

Parks & Nature
A great place to walk your dog or have a swing. Shelters are available for picnics and the clock tower is a local landmark. The internationally-famous Goebel Goats can been seen quietly grazing on the hillside. It's a short and relaxing walk from this location.

A relatively short walk from this location, George Rogers Clark Park is nestled along the banks of the Ohio River and offers spectacular river and skyline views. Located in one of the Nations premier historic neighborhoods, the Licking River Historic District, stroll among multi-million-dollar historic mansions and sit for a relaxing break from the hectic pace of the City. Although completely surrounded by city, this is a tranquil and peaceful place and a walk from this location to GRCP is exactly 3 miles, round trip.

Just a short walk from GRCP and the Licking Riverside Historic District, across the famed Roebling Suspension Bridge (the prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City), this park is absolutely breathtaking with lush landscaping, creative attractions for young and old, vast expanses of green space and stunning views of the Ohio River, Covington and Downtown Cincinnati. A walk/run, there and back, from this location is about 4 miles.

Set atop the hills west of the City, Devou park offers many things to do from hiking to golfing to just relaxing and taking in the quintesential view of Cincinnati. There are many great views of the City but this one is the iconic "money shot" that (even) if you've never visited our area, you've still (most likely) seen the view from this vantage point. It's walkable from this location if you don't mind a climb. You may want to drive, especially if you're planning on hitting the links... you won't want to schlep your clubs up THAT hill!
