We recently had dinner at Blinkers Tavern, located at 318 Greenup Street in Covington. Loved the atmosphere and the food!
We had the Blackened Talapia, which featured a nice, generous portion of fish with the perfect blend of spices. Just enough flavor but not overwhelmingly “hot.” The side salad was a little weak, but the baked potato was fresh and cooked perfectly. We also had the Filet Mignon, which was cooked to order and very juicy and tender.
I was not able to eat dessert. If I had, it would’ve been the White Chocolate Cheesecake. I did, however, have a bite of my friend’s Bread Pudding. I’ve never had bread pudding, but it was delicious. It had a nice mocha flavor with a hint of almond.
We did make reservations, but were a little disappointed that we were not seated until more than an hour past our reservation time. It was a Saturday night and very crowded, but we had a table for four, so it wasn’t even a large party. However, the manager apologized and checked in on us a couple of times while we waited at the bar. He also bought us an appetizer…Truffle Fries are one of my faves.
I appreciated that it wasn’t so loud that we couldn’t talk to each other. And that the bartenders were very friendly and attentive.
Parking was easy. They have their own space in the alley next door. The price was on par with any other nice dinner and night out – less than $80 for two to eat and partake in a couple of drinks (the house Cab was pretty good).
Would love to go back in the summer and eat out on the front patio. They also have a Sunday brunch that sounds yummy.
