Ever since I moved to Cincinnati 6 years ago, Teller’s of Hyde Park has been one of my favorite go-to dinner spots. From dining as an out-of-towner, a college student and now a resident Hyde Parker, I think I’ve tried at least half of the menu items. Though I have my obvious favorites (I’m lookin’ at you Buffalo Chicken Eggrolls) I always like to try something different and let me tell you … it never disappoints!
Last week, I was honored to attend an exclusive Influencer Night at Teller’s. While there, I got the lowdown on their NEW food and drink menus. They only change up their menu 1-2 times per year, so you’ve gotta go try these new items for yourself!
Teller’s is located in the iconic Hyde Park Square, nestled amongst other local eateries, bars and boutiques. Inspired by its former glory as the Hyde Park Savings and Loan Building, the ambiance, decor and even some of the cocktails are an ode to the good ol’ banking days.
For example, some of their new summer cocktails include the Pretty Boy Floyd, Sundance Kid, Jesse James and Clyde Barrow – all names of infamous bank robbers. Clever, right? Of these new cocktails, I highly recommend the Bonnie Parker. It’s an Aperol-based cocktail complete with homemade raspberry preserves and frozen raspberries for garnish … it tastes like summer in a glass, perfect for their outdoor patio!
We were seated in The Vault … yes, you heard that right! They literally turned the old bank vault into an event space for luncheons, parties and more. With new entrees like the Shrimp Étouffée, Hurley’s Hot Chicken and Ribeye Chimichurri, it was hard to choose, but I ended up with the hot chicken … yum-o! And if you don’t order the Buffalo Chicken Eggrolls to start (but why wouldn’t you?) then definitely get the Spanish Mussels, topped with chorizo and a white wine cream sauce. It was like a fiesta en mi boca! 😀
Moral of the story: If you haven’t been to Teller’s yet, go! Right now. You won’t be disappointed. And if you’re a Teller’s regular like me, still go. There are so many new things to try, it will be like a whole new dining experience. I promise!
Thanks to Teller’s of Hyde Park for wining and dining me and a guest! Though our delicious meal was comped, all opinions are my own and were not influenced by this compensation.
