China Gourmet....THE place to celebrate Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year & the New Family Date Night!


yde Park has had the honor of being the home of one of the best Chinese restaurants in Cincinnati for over 40 years: China Gourmet. Currently owned by long-term employee Matt Loomis, China Gourmet has consistently provided high quality food to generations of Cincinnatians. February is the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Dog, and China Gourmet is celebrating it for a whole week from February 12-17; they’ll have their regular menu, but will also be featuring specials all week for the New Year highlighting authentic Chinese cuisine, such as razor scallops, rabbit, and oxtail soup, to name a few. In addition to their traditional Cantonese and Szechuan dishes, China Gourmet really enjoys preparing custom and unique dishes – in fact, your server might ask you five questions to figure out the best custom meal for you! Known for their fresh fish and seafood, all delivered daily, China Gourmet prefers to serve the whole fish, because it just “tastes better.” If you are looking for a great place for a date night out, come to China Gourmet on Mondays: it’s Family Night! While the adults enjoy a delicious meal

on their own, the kids will have a blast in their own room with food and entertainment, including a ping pong table, tv, toys, arts and crafts and games. The room is closed, so the kids stay safely contained… and their parents don’t have to share their fortune cookies! On Lobster Tuesdays, you can get a 1.75-pound hard shell lobster for just a few dollars over what the restaurant paid for it. It’s a great deal, so call ahead and order yours, and then come in and enjoy it freshly prepared just for you. Is it Wednesday? Must be Flight Night! Enjoy a rotating selection of wine and bourbon flights, 4 to a flight, for just $16. China Gourmet didn’t forget about Valentine’s Day! Come in for surf and turf, Chinese style. Heartshaped scallops will be served along side Hong Kong style filet mignon, perfect for a romantic evening out with your sweetie. China Gourmet is open for lunch Wednesday through Friday from 11:00am-2:00pm, dinner Monday through Thursday from 4:00pm-11:00pm, and Friday and Saturday from 4:00pm-midnight.

Once a post office, now a restaurant: Welcome to Postmark


ostmark is the newest restaurant to hit the Clifton scene from Chef/Owner Brad Bernstein and Sommelier/Owner Devon Barret (of Red Feather Kitchen); housed in the former Tink’s, La Poste and Harvest Bistro and Wine Bar space, Postmark is a “new American restaurant.” But what does that mean? It’s a “farmhouse refined” concept that emphasizes “slow food”; by showcasing the best in farm goods, old world ingredients and artful products, Postmark delivers great food and drink, honestly prepared and served. They are proud to work directly with merchants, farmers and importers to preserve this impression tradition; they are open, friendly and considerate, trained and educated in their trade, with an unwavering confidence in their product and beliefs. What’s unique about Postmark is the setting; it’s repurposed, reused, and up-cycled. Worn and weathered while still being cozy and comfortable, yet also rustic and rugged. Filled with old world charm and nostalgia, this is where fine dining meets farmhouse style. The postal theme is portrayed by post office antiques, prints and decor, throughout the dining room. Postmark also features a semi-private dining room that can 12 KEYCINCINNATI.COM

accommodate groups up to thirty, and guests will appreciate overlooking the curated, 2,000 bottle wine room. Postmark owner Chef Brad Bernstein is a third-generation restauranteur and this is his second restaurant separate from his family. Devon Barrett, certified Sommelier from the Court of Master Sommeliers, came to Cincinnati six years ago and worked at Red the Steakhouse and Moxie in Beechwood. Before opening Red Feather Kitchen in 2013 in Oakley, Devon Barrett was general manager at Zula in OTR where he and Brad Bernstein met. Postmark is open six days a week: Tuesday through Thursday from 5-9pm; Friday and Saturday from 5-10pm; and Sunday from 5-9pm. Wine tastings with small bites, charcuterie, & cheese are available Tuesday through Friday from 5-7pm.

The Mardi Gras for Homeless Children soon celebrates 27 years of support.


t’s Mardi Gras for Homeless Children – the 27th Year Anniversary celebration. Once again the event is presented by MercedesBenz of Fort Mitchell and at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center on “Fat Tuesday,” February 13th. The proceeds from the Mardi Gras go to three area shelters that provide essential care to homeless children and their families: Bethany House Services of Cincinnati, Brighton Center’s Homeward Bound and Welcome House of Northern Kentucky, Inc. in Covington. Together these three agencies serve more than 40,000 needy individuals in our community each year. How did the Mardi Gras for the Homeless begin? 28 years ago, there was a tragic accident that touched the hearts of the Tri-State area; three homeless children were living in an abandoned garage and - locked in when their father left them alone. Tragically, a fire broke out. Unable to escape, the three children perished. Realizing children are not always visible behind the homeless adults, the Northern Kentucky Restaurant Association wanted to help – the first Mardi Gras for Homeless Children was held. This 27th Mardi Gras will feature over 50 booths of fantastic food and beverages (allincluded) provided by members of the Northern Kentucky Restaurant Association. This year, one of the highlights will be a Royal Court Parade featuring returning Cincinnati Bengals running

back Giovani Bernard as Grand Marshal, Scott Sloan of WLW 700 and Sheila Gray of Channel 12 as King and Queen, and the Beechwood High School marching band, as well as a float. Live and silent auctions will offer a remarkable selection of items, with live music provided by Robin Lacy and DeZydeco. The party is 6:30pm-10:00pm. For tickets call 859-291-NKRA (6572) or go to Tickets may also be purchased at Mercedes-Benz of Fort Mitchell.
