La Poste chef, Dave Taylor, has crafted a menu of inventive dishes served with unconventional and delicious sides, as well as myriad quality wines. As in epistolary matters, the menu at La Poste is divided into Postage, Salutation, Body, and Postscript. Fritter away the premeal wait with a "postage" choice of ricotta fritters adorned with candied orange, bathed in black-truffle oil, and served with baby arugula ($7). Hungrier diners can upgrade to the succulent sausage in brioche, served with bacon, frisee, and brown butter ($10), with the option of delivery confirmation from a contented stomach. Amid the trellised windows and casual-but-tasteful arrangements of the restaurant, a glass of pinot noir from Gerard Bertrand ($9) sets off a plate of grilled salmon served with a smoked-paprika ratatouille and simmered in a buerre-rouge sauce ($18).

Taste of Belgium follows an authentic family recipe to make its waffles out of thick dough and coarse Belgian beet sugar. A specialized cast-iron press then crushes the dough into its distinctive waffle shape and caramelizes the sugar in the process. This gives the waffle a rich vanilla flavor and a delightful sweetness that doesn't require syrup. As such, you can eat waffles on the go without plates, forks, or Catholic guilt.

Since 1985, Alex's Bistro on Reed has charmed diners with its seasonal take on American and European classics. These days, under the leadership of German-born and -trained chef Daniel Kern, the bistro's menu narrows its focus to French and Italian flavors. Using natural meats and sustainable seafood, Daniel pairs 8-ounce filet mignons with blue cheese potatoes and crowns risotto with a full pound of Maine lobster. Both dishes, like a bulk of Daniel's menu, are gluten free, and several other courses can be prepared without gluten. Whether gluten free or full, all feasts unfold within a spacious dining room rendered intimate with soft, romantic lighting.

At It’s Just Crepes, you’re encouraged to eat with your hands. That’s because every crepe on the menu is folded into what Soapbox Cincinnati calls "a convenient to-go style," eliminating the need for knives, forks, or tiny plate-side catapults. Instead, diners bite straight into the golden-brown bundles, which are stuffed with fillings both savory and sweet. The smoky BLT, for instance, oozes with pepperjack cheese and chipotle mayo, while sweet crepes pack in classic flavors such as Nutella, strawberries, and brown sugar. Utensils can come in handy, however, when attacking one of the eatery’s fresh salads, which meld fresh spinach, chopped romaine, and other greens with diced veggies, cheese, dried fruit, and slices of meats.

Co-owner Keven Paizannoglou founded the first It’s Just Crepes with his wife and partner, Karrah, after realizing how much he missed the crepes he’d enjoyed in his native Greece. Now, more than 20 employees serve up the delectable treats from three trendy dining spots decorated with blue and orange hues and contemporary white furnishings.

A fresco of French romantic painter Eugène Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People crowns The Inn At Versailles's stone fireplace. The mural's subject raises a fist clenching the French flag into the sky. Her gesture symbolizes the inn's rise from the ashes and unites its European-inspired artworks, many of which were painted locally.

A calamitous fire ravaged the village of Versailles in 1901, destroying six blocks of businesses and 38 homes. As residents rebuilt, they paid architectural homage to their town's namesake palace and to the Europe of the early 1900s. Since 1993, The Inn At Versailles has taken part in the European tradition with its vintage environs.

Local artists have ornamented nearly every room with original murals, frescoes, and prints inspired by Gallic culture at the turn of the century. The inn's guest rooms and suites join the elegance of ornate chandeliers, four-poster beds, and fireplaces with the modern pizzazz of TVs and WiFi access.

Complimentary continental breakfast every morning gives way to upscale lunch and dinner served at the onsite restaurant, Michael Anthony's at The Inn. Chef Michael Delligatta crafts upscale Italian fare bolstered by an international wine list that has garnered Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence every year since 2007. Visitors may carry their revelry to a nearby winery or one of the many other attractions in the village of Versailles.
