The good people at World Food Bar have opened up a new restaurant on Vine Street: Mayberry. Heather (Cincinnati's Food Hussy) and I decided to hit it up for lunch-- and we were not the only ones.
Word to the wise: don't try to hit up Mayberry with more than 4 people. It'd be a great place to meet up with a friend, but not the kind of place you'd have a business lunch. I would say that business might slow down when the novelty wears off, but frankly the food was really good and I don't see that happening any time soon.
You want to see the food? I had the burger with a poached egg on top (delicious) with tater tot casserole (delicious delicious). Also check out the scrumptiousness that were Heather and Lisa's lunches:
I paid $8 for my entree and $3 for my side... and a ridiculous $1.50 for my tiny tiny drink. The food is of much higher quality than most of the lunches I typically eat, but the prices were still absolutely in budget. (Bring your own drink, maybe? Your options are tiny, overpriced, single-serving drinks or their warm, iceless tap water.)
I also liked the simple decor inside Mayberry: the walls were covered in black-and-white Cincinnati landmark paintings.
