Cincinnati Eats: Postmark

Our dining adventures in Cincinnati continue with today's post. We headed to Postmark, a new American restaurant in a renovated post office building with a menu intended to be ordered as a tasting menu.
They embrace the building's history, and it was quite comfortable but yet felt special.
All of the menu items are available to order à la carte, so we did order some Oysters to start as we dove into the rest of the menu.
They source locally and seasonally, so the menu is changing often. For the Introduction course, we ordered the Pork Belly (one of our favorites of the meal).
And the Lobster with corn and mushrooms. This one didn't live up to my expectations.
The First Paragraph course brought Tuna Tartare. We loved the presentation, and the addition of watermelon and flavored ice.
And Foie Gras on toasted brioche with a chilled soup. Again, not as good as I had hoped.

The Second Paragraph brought another favorite dish of the night, the Gnocchi. I could have eaten a huge bowl of that and been as happy as a clam!
We both didn't care for the Lobster Risotto in this course.

The finale was Third Paragraph, and Mr. H had the Coulette Steak with a mole sauce and truffles.
I had ordered the Duck Breast, which we both preferred. But both were good dishes.
Overall, we enjoyed the meal and restaurant's atmosphere. But there were a few misses with the food, and we've had better meals in the Cincinnati area. So it was a good experience, but not one that I'd suggest over a few others if you're traveling there.
