What You'll Get
With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of New American cuisine, fine wine, and craft beer at Dilly Café, located in Mariemont.
Dilly Café is a free-spirited deli turned gourmet restaurant brimming with a charmingly relaxed elegance. The bulk of the menu is devoted to simple yet elegant lunch and dinner fare, such as the oven-roasted trout almondine with rice, haricot verts, and brown-butter sauce ($18), the creamy stilton and mushroom pasta ($12), and the Mariemont gobbler, a tribute to the historic village's 43rd first Thanksgiving with thick slices of turkey, imported brie, and cranberry chutney nestled within a crusty, warm baguette ($8). Lilliputian appetites can opt to nosh on an array of small plates and appetizers, including the Maryland-style crab cakes ($8) or the signature Dilly Café beer cheese ($8). The extensive wine list reflects Dilly Café's passion for discovering new and interesting fermented fruit, and the continuously changing craft-beer selection features Cincinnati's own Mt. Carmel American Wheat Ale ($3.75, $4.95) and Rivertown Helles Lager ($3.75, $4.95). Off tap, Dilly boasts more than 1,000 different beers and wines to peruse in its back-room alcohol oasis.
Wednesday through Saturday, Dilly brings in an eclectic mix of live music, ranging from folk, pop, and jazz to Celtic and acoustic. A charming front patio creates a romantic space where friends and frenemies can contentedly sit and sip under nature's speckled ceiling tiles, and original artwork fills the café with a casual, kitschy feel. Dilly Café packs a mean punch of friendly, neighborhood welcome and chompable chow, so wax and polish those incisors for an unforgettable blind mouth-date with Dilly.
