Ahem. In case you don’t get Gourmet, the latest issue includes an article entitled Restaurants Worth the Money, and the Midwest list starts with, “Tucker’s: For more than 60 years, this family-run diner has endured in the perpetually burgeoning Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. The secret? Oversize omelets, sturdy BLTs, and a killer vegetarian take on huevos rancheros.” Now you know, and now everybody knows about Tucker’s.
Thanks, Gourmet, for spilling the beans, and a major congratulations to the Tuckers! [Although, I am sort of pissed, too.]
These photos were taken in front of Tucker’s during last Friday’s Cincinnati PARK[ing] Day. Thank you to Brian for getting everyone together and Adrienne for the photos! Below, Chris and Chico from Lagniappe are jamming on the sidewalk:
I have to mention Lagniappe again, because this band is so much fun! They performed at the OTR/Gateway Summer Celebration this June, and they play regularly at Arnold’s and other venues around town. Chris was briefly our landlord; ask him about the compound in Over-the-Rhine.
