Cincinnati Supper Club, it’s super (part two)

The 2nd Supper Club members present

So, last night marked the second meeting of the monthly Cincinnati Supper Club, this time at Blake Fox’s house. Kudos to Jackie Danicki for coming up with the idea and working to make it happen, and big kudos to Blake for hosting it at his great place up in Mount Auburn.

As you’ll see from the photos (see by clicking on the one above, and also see Jackie’s and Blake’s photos), we had a great evening. It started around 6 p.m. and it has typically gone until whenever, with the last folks (me, Jackie and Edward) hitting the road around 10:30 last night. The whole night was scattered, smothered and covered in great conversation, a great view and wonderful food. Oh, and what did we have to eat? Blake cooked up a unique beef Stroganoff, coupled that with a make-your-own tossed salad and fresh bread. It was all terrific.

Then – lucky us – Michelle Lightfoot, the owner of the best lunch place in the entire world (no joke) deli 720, 720 East Pete Rose Way (inside the office building across from the Purple People Bridge, (513) 381- 3720, Web site to come very, very soon), made us some creme brulee for dessert. Incredible.

Come join us next time. (I’m hosting it on July 19th, but before that May’s meeting is at Chad & Michelle’s house, and Ken & John will host in June in their Over-the-Rhine courtyard).
