i had fried fish, 2 pieces of bread, mac n' cheese, applesauce, and a slice of apple pie (all for $7.25). the best part was st. james offers SALTED rye as one of their bread options. yum. the beers were $2. score.
the fish was really good, crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside. the mac n' cheese was warmly lunch lady-esque. all in all, st. james gets two thumbs up on the fish fry circuit. especially for the god and cod centerpieces.
after the fry, we ventured to piazza discepoli for their weekly wine tasting and special moerlein beer tasting. the moerlein tasting was supposed to include the new queen city stout, but unfortunately the representative was not able to get any. i did learn that moerlein is looking to move back to cincinnati and is going to be producing little kings, burger, and burger light. my grandpa will be so stoked!
