The Quarter Bistro Restaurant Review

: Worth the drive to the historic village of Mariemont, this charming bistro is a chill, quality destination in the 'burbs. The outdoor patio, with its flower beds and good-looking crowd, is the place to spend a warm summer evening. That said, cool spring and autumn nights also are pleasant when spent outside, especially since the patio has heaters and servers offer blankets. The bistro's location, next to the old-fashioned Mariemont Theater, makes it a good place for a date night. Inside, there's elegant seating and white linen tablecloths. The contemporary-eclectic menu is Latin and French-inspired. Offerings change seasonally, but starters might range from lamb lollipops to guacamole with house-made corn chips. The go-to main dish is the 18-hour short ribs with house tortellini. Small plate options include truffled risotto or French green beans. Typical bar offerings, like pizza and burgers, have an upscale twist. Vegetable tacos are a good choice for vegetarians. Meanwhile, dessert could be crème brûlée, strawberry shortcake and bread pudding. Notable wine list.
