CINCINNATI - We are pleased to bring you this weekly feature from Julie Niesen Gosdin, the voice behind the food blog wine me, dine me. Julie serves up a "Pick of the Week," when she visits a local eatery and samples a signature menu item.
Cubano at Salazar New American Restaurant & Bar
Jose Salazar came to Cincinnati five years ago to head up The Palace at The Cincinnatian. Late last year, he opened Salazar, where he can be found nearly every opening hour. The Cubano, which was my favorite menu item at The Cricket Lounge, has made its return to the lunch menu.
Ever since Salazar opened for lunch, I've been dreaming about this Cubano. It's the best one I've had outside of Miami: Great bread texture, perfect balance between melty cheese, ham, pork, tangy mustard and pickles.
