Postings have been sparse and will remain so for the month of July, especially the first part.
We have some medical matters which have kept us from venturing out and will continue to do so at least through the first 15 or 20 days of the month.

We did try a new spot, for us, on July 1. Along with another couple, our usual routine, we crossed the river to "Bouquet Restaurant and Wine Bar" 519 Main St. Covington KY 41011 (859) 491-7777.
It was a Friday night and there was a decent crowd but short of a "full house". The other couple had been there before and knew the server who was quite attentive and helpful.
Being a warm night and wanting eat on the lite side I started with chilled Peach Soup which was delicious. It combined sweetness and savory and I probably should have ordered a double portion, both for flavor and quantity. I followed with what I recall was described as a "fish taco" which consisted of two nicely grilled pieces of a firm, filleted fish each laying upon a half slice of pita bread. The sauce was of the salsa variety combining sweetness and a slight spice. A rough slaw completed the dish. The whole thing was very satisfying.
For desert two of us split an order of Peach Sorbet. You might say it was a "Peachy" evening.

Food was good, price reasonable and service, as mentioned, attentive.
It's a shame that the location is next to "Otto's" and therefore, unfortunately, I came away with some slight guilt feeling, no one else will carry this burden.
