Eckerlin Meats (Findlay Market); Review



Eckerlin Meats

1812 Pleasant Street Breezeway

Cincinnati, OH 45202

(513) 721-5743



Since moving to Cincinnati in 1999 I have discovered very few great finds like Eckerlin Meats. Eckerlin Meats is a Butcher in the famous Findlay Market. The staff is always friendly and engaging swapping stories and jokes with customers. I’m sorry but I’ll pay extra for customer service and the feeling that I’m important to them. We need to support businesses like these or they will fade away. Customer service is excellent not to mention their meat selection and homemade sausages. Employees are quick to make suggestions and don’t look at me like I’m crazy for asking if there is something I should try. I love this place and will be spending my money here rather than give it to a corporate grocery who deceives me and offers terrible options.

I highly recommend Eckerlin Meats; love what they’re doing!


Buona Vita Pizzeria Dayton KY; Review

Buona Vita Pizzeria

441 6th Avenue, Dayton, KY4 4107



Price: $$$$

Dress: Casual

Great food runs in the family with four brothers from Northern Kentucky. Mark Frommeyer owner of Blue Oven Bakery, Nick Frommeyer owner of Dolce Vita Gelato and now Joe and Mathew Frommeyer bring us Buona Vita Pizzeria in Dayton, KY. I have been buying bread from Mark and Gelato from Nick for past few years so when I heard their brothers had a Pizzeria (Buona Vita) just minutes down the road… I had to check it out. I could go into how cool the location is, the bar and the decor but food is the real attraction here. The pizza is absolutely phenomenal using fresh ingredients and sporting a very thin crust that crisps up nicely on the edges. I tried three pizzas on my first trip; the Margarita, Jeremy’s Meat Pie and one of my creations. I must say these pizzas follow the Italian cooking theory of simplicity. Jeremy’s Meat Pie had sausage, pepperoni, prosciutto and bacon. I liked that they didn’t overload the pizza with meat; just enough to compliment the crust cheese and sauce. I really liked the Margarita a great version of the classic pizza. Buona Vita is the best pizza in the Cincinnati area and some of the best I’ve ever eaten. Please support these four brothers and their businesses as they improve the very weak Cincinnati food scene.


Fiorucci Prosciutto & Mozzarella Rolls: Product Review

I’ve been wanting to try these since The Party Source started carrying them about two months ago. They seemed a little pricey at  just over $5  for a pack of 8 at about 6 0zs. I tried Fiorucci Prosciutto & Mozzarella Rolls today and I’m not happy about it; they were awesome. Now I will be fighting myself to not get these rolls every time I go to the store. I can’t Imagine not eating the entire package when I open them. I highly recommend them.
