I solicited my girlfriend Annie to join me and I threw out a couple of not-yet-blogged spots that I love, but she suggested trying Incline Public House. So glad she did. Located on the historic incline to Price Hill, this little lookout’s patio offers sweeping views of downtown and the river and on a nice night, this is exactly where you’d want to park.
Nearly everything on the menu is made from scratch. We decided to start with the baked brie small plate, which was absolutely delicious. Shockingly delicious. Hot brie cheese with raspberry puree on a toasted crostini makes my mouth water all over again as I type. And cheese as a starter can be a little dicey because it can fill you right up, but this split by two hit just the spot.
As far as dinner goes, we both basically ordered the same thing – short rib. I had it as the taco special and Annie had it as the grilled cheese. I can speak for both and say they’re both delicious. The tacos were light in the right way with salsa, corn, spicy slaw, and sour cream. Annie’s, with caramelized onions, swiss cheese, and toasted bread, was pretty bananas. Silly, silly good.
Trying this spot was totally worth it. It’s the type of place to go grab lunch and just relax in good weather. If you are going to go out and pay for food, it might as well be really good and it might as well come with a view.
