Celebrate National Martini Day at #‎MyRustyBucket‬ Every Friday!

rusty bucket martini night

Today is National Martini Day- YAY!! So head out and celebrate with friends and family with a good old fashion martini! And while your out, stop by Rusty Bucket for their Friday Night Martini Specials! rusty bucket martiniThis way you can celebrate National Martini Day every week!

While martini’s are great, I love good food, but I really love great food! Rusty Bucket is definitely one of my favorite places to eat, because they have great food! If you are looking for a place with some great food, a kid friendly menu, yummy drinks and a great time with friends and family, this is the best!

The atmosphere here is amazing, staff is always friendly and if you don’t quite know what you are hungry for, just ask, they have the best suggestions!

Friday’s are Martini Night at Rusty Bucket and never having a martini, our server suggested the Pineapple Finlandia Cosmo- this is not your everyday martini! These pineapples soak for 3 weeks before they are added to your drink! Let’s just say they are very yummy! So for a light weight like me, be sure to have a designated driver. This is a sweet, smooth and a very delicious drink. This would be my recommendation if you are looking for a new drink!

If you are a Rusty Bucket regular then you will know all about the Bucket Punch – Their signature PineFin, Mount Gay silver rum, Cointreau, POM juice, orgeat syrup, blood orange bitters and fresh squeezed orange and lime juices. This will get your body a moving! Not too sweet but hits just the right spot!

After drinks we tried the Spinach Con Queso- a blend of spinach, white wine and cheeses, served with piping hot tortilla chips. Usually I am not a huge Spinach Dip fan, but this is a little different than any other spinach dip I have had. This dip is smooth and creamy and alot of cheese flavor not over taken by the spinach. Also served with diced tomatoes, mixed in with the cheesy goodness, they melt right in your mouth!

I ordered the Chicken Parmesan – seasoned panko crusted chicken breast topped with marinara sauce, provolone cheese and rusty bucket chicken parmesanserved with pasta alfredo and garlic cheese bread. When you order this, be sure to bring a big appetite! This meal is large enough for 2 or someone very hungry! The moist seasoned panko crusted chicken breast was smothered in this rich italian flavored marinara sauce then covered with cheese and creamy Alfredo sauce that was just amazing! Each bite of chicken just melts in your mouth and keeps you wanting more! I was able to enjoy about half of my plate before I was completely stuffed! But nothing says tomorrows lunch like today’s dinner leftovers! It was just as good the next day!

We also ordered the Mac & Cheese – Swiss and American cheeses with elbow macaroni; topped with cheddar panko bread crumbs and oven-baked until golden brown; served with garlic cheese bread. I have to admit, I am very picky with my Mac &  Cheese, alot of places try to fancy it all up by adding additional toppings and most places fail miserably. But I have to say, this was one of the most flavorful bowls of Mac & Cheese I have ever had. rusty bucket mac and cheese

I love finding local places that not only I can go out with my family and enjoy but still have a night out with my girls all at the same place! There is a neighborhood tavern feel to Rusty Bucket while keeping you coming back for that favorite family, friendly restaurant you’ll want to visit every week!

Cincinnati: Bravo Grand Opening in Rookwood

bravo pic

Italian food is my absolute favorite food – so getting the opportunity to try out the new location of Bravo! Cucina Italiana in Rookwood (Cincinnati) was like, duh! Bravo! is know for their higher end Italian cuisine at affordable prices but I have to say the experience was my favorite! Walking into the restaurant, smells of your favorite Italian spices and flavors hit you, instantly making your mouth water. Walking to our table getting a preview of all the amazing food, seemed almost like a tease!

bread and salad bravo

As soon as we arrived to our table our waiter greeted us and asked if we had ever visited a Bravo! and in detail explained what specials they had. Gave us plenty of options and answered all our questions about the food and what each item contained. The detail to customer service and making our visit the best it could be, was a amazing! We got to start off our meal with a Caesar salad and bread. Then we got our yummy appetizers!

bravo appetizers

I normally am not a huge fan of flatbread, but the Chicken, Spinach & Bacon Flatbread with Grilled chicken, spinach, Applewood bacon, green onions, Mozzarella, and Provolone was absolutely delicious! The flavors blended so well together and are a great way to get started!

I was a little afraid of trying the Italian Wedding Soup. Meatballs, spinach, pasta and cheese just did not seem like something that would go together. So I was a little on the fence. But I have to say, this was the most delicious bowl of soup I have ever had! Extremely creamy and the meatballs, oh meatballs! These meatballs were moist and flavorful in each and every bit! This is a meal all in it’s own!

After this, there was not much more room for anything else, but I knew we had some more great food coming and a dessert!

I ordered the Sausage Tortelloni which is a Cheese-filled tortelloni, sweet Italian sausage, pancetta, tomato sauce, crushed red pepper, Mozzarella, and fresh basil. And my partner ordered the Mama’s Lasagna Bolognese a Creamy Alfredo and BRAVO!’s signature meat sauce. With out a doubt these two meals were absolutely to die for! The moist, sweet flavor of the Italian sausage and the creamy cheese and kicking peppers were blended so well and just melted in your mouth! But the lasagna, it was my favorite! The flavors of this lasagna were just amazing! It was not your regular lasagna, this was creamy and flavors just burst in your mouth! The way they blend the Alfredo sauce and cheeses are such a great combination, it made the meal fantastic!

bravo dinner

Finally when I just felt like I couldn’t eat another bite, they delivered the dessert! And just not any dessert, Bravo! Cheesecake- Luscious New York style cheesecake with a shortbread cookie crust, dusted with sugar and caramelized to order. Served with vanilla bean anglaise.

Like who comes up with this stuff! I love cheesecake, but this was like over the top, the best cheesecake I have ever had! As you can see in the picture we finished the entire thing! I know what your thinking, how in the world did you eat all that food, well when it’s that good you just can’t not eat it!!

Bravo cheesecake

So next time you have a hunger for Italian food, the only place to go is Bravo!. Check them out here on their website to make reservations or you are able to walk in, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram!
