Last night we went to the Cincinnati Blackfinn for dinner with another couple for the soft opening. Across the street from the URS Tower and in the space McFaddens used to occupy BlackFinn has an updated menu with a few more sophisticated choices and some old favorites. We had the opportunity to try a sampling and were reasonably impressed.
Our table dined on some beer steamed mussels and Ahi tuna for starters. You could really smell the beer in the mussels and the tuna was seared just right with a sweet glaze drizzled on top. I enjoyed my penne primavera and my husband thought the Ahi sandwich was great. Our friends enjoyed the BlackFinn grilled chicken and rice dinner and buffalo chicken sandwich.
The desserts were equally as good. The ice cream cake was easily large enough for two and our friends spoke highly of the apple pie. There was a glass of Guinness inspired chocolate mousse that we missed out on but it looked amazing.
We are running a small contest here for free passes to the BlackFinn grand opening Party Thursday night March 13th. The first people to track back and comment will get up to 4 VIP tickets to the event.
