Cover Story

Trotta’s Steak and Seafood takes the Tri-State by storm

T

here’s a new place in town to get the best steaks and seafood, and that place is Trotta’s Steak and Seafood in Dayton, KY. Located just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, Trotta’s has made quite the impact on the local dining scene. Proud to offer hand-cut steaks and fresh, never frozen seafood, Trotta’s is owned by Kathleen Trotta, a fine-dining expert who decided it was time to open her own place and show Cincinnati how quality is done. Kathleen is all about keeping her menu fresh and different; new items are always appearing on the menu, which they print in-house, so that diners never get bored and always have something different to try. She loves to create new recipes that keep her diners’ taste buds hopping! Trotta’s will remind you of an old-school supper club, with a grand piano in the lobby and vintage décor. More live music is coming, in addition to the pianist who plays, and they have a beautiful patio for al fresco dining. They also have firepits you can dine around, lit up with

7 KEYCINCINNATI.COM

candles and surrounded by umbrella tables; it’s romantic and comfortable and perfect for a date night adventure. In addition to offering outside dining, Trotta’s also has VIP dining available. Their private dining area boasts its own side door entrance, so the more famous among us can slip in unnoticed, and it has every amenity you need for a quiet – or not so quiet – private experience. “I’ve got a great team, wonderful servers. We work like family here,” says Kathleen. “And we’ve got great reviews online. Check out Yelp or TripAdvisor: we’re five stars!” Trotta’s is jampacked on the weekends, and not just with Cincinnatians and Dayton, KY patrons; people from Dayton (Ohio), Louisville, Indianapolis and more have embraced this restaurant and welcomed them to the community with open arms. This holiday season, treat your family and friends to the newest dining experience in town: Trotta’s Steak and Seafood.

Destination

of the

Month

Head up to Indy for the Winterlights exhibit...and so much more!

C

incinnati definitely has a ton of things to do, see and eat, but sometimes, it’s fun to see what’s happening in other Tri-State cities. Indianapolis is less than 2 hours away and is jampacked with activities for the whole family this winter! If you love beautiful light displays, Winterlights at Newfields is the perfect spot to start. Featured on the campus of Newfields (the new name for the campus at the Indianapolis Museum of Art), this brand new exhibit is an ideal date night, family getaway or solo adventure. The gardens are completely blanketed in lights as the campus both shines and entertains with a synchronized light show, hovering Christmas trees, larger than life sculptures, warm cocktails, snacks and soft music. This is one of the Midwest’s must-see holiday exhibits of 2017, so don’t miss the chance to see for yourself. Ever dreamt of driving your car across the Yard of Bricks at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Back and better than ever this holiday season is Lights at the Brickyard at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This event features more than 2.5 million bright lights and hundreds of shining displays spread along a stretch of the IMS road course and a portion of the oval. For race fans and bucket-listers alike, this is one you don’t want to miss. While in Indy, drop by Monument Circle to see more gorgeous lights! The day after Thanksgiving more than 100,000 people gathered to celebrate the lighting of Indy’s beloved 242-foot tall Soldiers and Sailors Monument at the epicenter of Indy. Travelocity named this one of the top five must-see Christmas trees in the nation and they are spot on with that

designation. Did you know the Indianapolis Zoo was the first zoo in the United States to hold a holiday lights show? Christmas at the Zoo is a fan favorite for both Indy residents and visitors alike. Enjoy a hot beverage while you stroll the zoo, see the lights, take time to see the animals and listen to some carolers by the campfire. Of course, nothing beats a holiday train ride. Jingle Rails at the Eiteljorg Museum is a locomotive wonderland that will take you on a journey through the American West via nine working model trains. The trains will wind past local Indy treasures before heading west to check out Mt. Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, Hollywood and much more. Perfect for kids and adults alike!  Now is also the perfect time to visit Indy’s premier family-friendly holiday destination, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. They celebrate the holidays with Jolly Days, where you can take part in wintertime traditions including games, “baking,” exploring the frozen Ice Castle, sock-skating on the “ice pond,” and trying your hand at “ice fishing.” If you’ve never been to the world’s largest children’s museum before, you have to check it out. And come back in the spring when the 7.5 acre indoor/outdoor Sports Legends Experience opens! And last but not least, if you’re looking for a show, check out IPL’s Yuletide at the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra or A Christmas Carol at the Indiana Repertory Theatre. Whatever you’re searching for, you’ll find it in Indy, the perfect day-trip destination from Cincinnati. For more information about Indy and all it has to offer, visit www.visitindy.com.

Shopping Spotlight Dillonvale IGA is THE fried chicken destination in Cincinnati orget the Colonel: Dillonvale IGA definitely F has the best fried chicken in Cincinnati! You wouldn’t think a grocery store would be the hot

ticket for fried chicken, but they’ve found a way to make the freshest, juiciest, tastiest chicken around: maybe because they fry it fresh all day long! You’ll never get chicken that’s been laying around under hot lights for hours; just hot, fresh, fried goodness that will put a smile your family’s face every time it hits the dinner table. But that’s not all the Dillonvale IGA is known for; they also are proud to offer their fresh salad bar (with fresh items put out daily), Boar’s Head deli products, and their newest offering: Busken Bakery products.

Dillonvale IGA also offers another old Cincinnati favorite: Bill Knapp’s cakes. Bill Knapp’s was a popular restaurant in Cincinnati for ages, and their chocolate cake was the most popular item on their menu. And while the restaurant closed some time ago, the cake lives on – and you can get it at Dillonvale IGA. They also carry the vanilla cake, but let’s be honest: chocolate is where it’s at.

Mommy Makeover

Our Gift to

w

omen’s bodies respond differently to pregnancy and childbirth. Some moms experience relatively minor changes. But many other women are left with sagging breasts, stretch marks, and lax skin that can only be repaired with surgery. Even women who lead healthy lifestyles that include regular exercise and healthy eating choices need help regaining their pre-baby bodies. Sit-ups can’t tighten stomach skin stretched by pregnancy, and lost breast volume can’t be replaced without implants. Dr. Lawrence Kurtzman is experienced in providing customized mommy makeovers that produce natural-looking results. He is truly one of the nation’s leading plastic surgeons and is highly regarded by colleagues and patients alike. Call Dr. Kurtzman today for a complimentary consultation for a mommy makeover. Get back your pre-baby body!
