out at maplewood + giveaway

I brunched at Maplewood Kitchen + Bar for the umpteenth time this past weekend, and for the umpteenth time, I ordered the avocado benedict. And for the umpteenth umpteenth time, I completely cleaned my plate.

So when I was approached again to offer someone an opportunity to check out what’s available in Cincy, I immediately thought it has to be about Maplewood.

I’ve posted about Maplewood before, and I have currently recommended it twice as part of a travel guide site that I am now beginning to write for (feel free to check that out now but know that I’ll be doing a post about it here soon). With all that, I just have to say that Maplewood’s menu is an awesome one, and the whole operation runs like a seriously well-oiled machine. It seems overwhelming when you walk up and the line it out the door, but it really does consistently move, even though it takes some fair time before you will actually start eating. But again, the wait doesn’t feel obnoxious and the food really is worth it.

Again, I’ve talked about Maplewood in so many different places that there is no loss for my opinion on Maplewood to be found somewhere on the internet. So with that, I am excited to be able to offer a $25 giftcard for you to get in there and get some yourself! All you have to do is comment on this post for a chance to win! Winner will be chosen at random within the next week, so comment comment away!

    Dying to try it! The long line out front every time I drive by should mean it’s worth the wait, right?

    I absolutely LOVE Maplewood. I’ve only had the Avocado Benedict (many times now) but probably should try other things on the menu! LOL
