Galloping into the Sunset: The Iron Horse Inn

We’ve had a rash of closings lately. We suddenly lost the Encore Bistros in early December. I recently discovered that Vinyl has since closed and that Jardin barely took a breath before closing its doors as well. At the end of December, One Restaurant in Mason sadly closed. Now, we lose the Iron Horse Inn in Glendale.

In every Cincinnati Events post I’ve made, you can find the Iron Horse Inn. They’re known for excellent wine dinners (at least according to my friend Drew), although I never made it to one. I’ve had Easter brunch there several years in a row, as well as random Sunday brunches, as the restaurant is not that far from my mother’s home. I’m sad to see the Iron Horse go.

I just made a phone call but their voice mail box is completely full. They still have an active web site that has no mention of the closing, but the state of the voice mail box and the blogosphere tell me otherwise. Thanks to Julie for the tip – I’d otherwise have found out the hard way when one of my readers showed up at a non-existent restaurant for an equally non-existent wine dinner.

    small world in that we’re both friends with Drew. :)

    As you’ll discover as you get more into it, Julie, the culinary world in Cincinnati (and elsewhere) is very small indeed.

  3. Michelle says:

    You can also look at it as the Cincinnati virtual world is very small indeed. Thanks to blogging and Twitter, I have found this remarkable community, and everyone knows everyone. For instance, Julie, I told my friend Jen Rizzo to look at your new blog and she already knows you from Vox! Kevin commented that the Cincinnati virtual world is just as small as this city feels most of the time. Another example? When I first met Drew’s wife, I discovered that we were friends and sorority sisters at our very small college many years ago. It’s a very small town, culinary, virtual, or otherwise.
