The New Yorker: "The Best Things I've Eaten This Decade"

And now one of their menu items made The New Yorker’s food correspondent’s list of best things she ate all decade!

Helen Rosner writes that the past ten years were, for her, “very much a decade of sandwiches.” And that’s where Anchor Grill comes in. Their GLT, aka Goetta, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich is one of the best things she ate in all ten years.  

We already knew that our NKY and Cincinnati region is home to some of the best restaurants in the U.S. But we’re thrilled to hear that our local gem of a diner ranks with a boulangerie in Paris, an egg dish from San Sebastian, Spain, and a red beans and rice supper by “the legendary New Orleans host, Pableaux Johnson.”
