Igby’s Food review.

Igby’s Food review.

I was invited to Igby’s to check out their new plates menu.  It has been a while since I’d visited so it was nice to stop in and see what has changed.  This place is so very sexy, even in the day time.  I decided to eat on the outdoor patio.  I’d been cooped up inside long enough.  The place was pretty packed out for a Thursday, and there were a couple of private parties as well.  This would be the perfect location for a swanky get together with friends, I should know: this was one of the stops for my bachelorette party!

I had my eye on the calamari, so I ordered that with the lettuce wraps and a club soda.  My waitress was so sweet, so even though my meal was free, she took great care of me.  I really enjoyed the lettuce wraps, they had rice and wonderfully seasoned chicken inside with a great sriracha aioli.  It was spicy, but not overly so.  Which is my jam.  I want my food flavorful, not hot enough to burn my lips off!  They were a bit messy, so if you’re on a first date, use a fork, lol!  The calamari was epic.  It was hand breaded and fried to a golden perfection and served with a lemon and sriracha aioli.  It was so light and delicious I did not want to stop eating them.  The basket was a great sharable size.  Overall these were great light appetizers to share between a few people.  The space is great, I can now say the food is great and I can’t wait to return w/ a few of my peeps to share this space with!

A new addition to my Cincinnati Gems and a highly recommended unique spot to check out downtown.
