Elm Street location and Turkey Reuben Salad


From the heart of downtown Cincinnati, the Izzy’s on Elm Street always seemed off the beaten path. However, I learned that it is a less than 10-minute walk from Fountain Square. I also learned that it is worth the walk. Elm Street has a recently-renovated patio which is great for outdoor dining. Even though it was 97 degrees the day I went there, I sat outside and enjoyed the shade and an occasional breeze. I planned on eating outside anyway, but I did not have much choice as the tables inside were already filled with loyal Izzy’s customers. The service was top-notch and the Turkey Reuben Salad was delicious. It was the most filling salad I have ever eaten and was loaded with all of my Turkey Reuben favorites, including the sweet and sour coleslaw. Is there a better beverage while eating outside than a refreshing sweet tea? I don’t think there is. If you want to enjoy your Izzy’s favorites while dining al fresco, make the short trek to the Elm Street location near City Hall.
