    It's usually open for lunch - they have pizza and sandwiches - but you can also get carryout for dinner. It's all take-out. I think Kahn's is referring to the dinner parties they sometimes have.

    The sister of a friend from high school opened the place - she was a chef in New York before coming back here. I second the recommendation.

    Another hearty vote for Orchids at the Palm Court as best in Cincinnati!

    Have any of our northern Cincy posters had the chance to eat at SW Clyborne in Mason yet? Had it about 4-5 times. Really think it has the best food in the northern Cincy area. If you havenít tried it yet, you are missing out.

I used to really liked the Empress that used to be located on the back side of Hitching Post on Kellogg - I'll re-try Empress or Camp Washington next. 30 years ago at Xavier, it was Eva's in Norwood where you'd eat chili with the GM workers at 5AM after a long night of ... studying. Now, on Xavier game watch days in Chicago, at Merkle's, they'll often put out a chili bar using this fantastic recipe (here).

    Tomorrow, I will be in Fort Wright in the morning then Montfort Heights in the afternoon. Is there a recommended chili parlor near either place?

    There are probably a Skyline and Gold Star in both of them. Youíll pass Camp Washington Chili going from Ft. Wright to Montfort Heights. Itís right off I-75 at Hopple St.

    What brings you to Montfort Heights? I grew up there.

    Any old timers remember A Smiles Chili in Norwood? Think you had to be over 80 to work there.

    So, find a Skyline or Gold Star. Cool, thanks for the local insider knowledge.

    I went to Camp Washington Chili last time. Honestly, I could not tell a difference. It tastes like all the other chili. The increased feeling of being a crime victim added some spice.

    I have a very important meeting in Montfort Heights, as one does.
