Discover A New Holiday Tradition At Frisch’s
Discover a New Holiday Tradition at Frisch’s Big Boy this year. Recently, I was invited to dinner at Frisch’s and to a performance of the Nutcracker, presented by the Cincinnati Ballet, at the Aronoff Center. Little did I know at the time, that I will discover a new holiday tradition for my family and friends to enjoy.
At Frisch’s we ate a sampling of their holiday dinner menu items; Carved Turkey, Country Fried Chicken, Roast Beef, Country Fried Steak, and Meatloaf. Served with Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Rich Gravy, and Farm Fresh Green Beans. Served up family style, since we had a bunch of my blogger friends from the area attending as well. It’s hard to choose a favorite since I liked them all. All dinners are available for $7.99.
Check out how delicious these dinners look in the picture below.
A New Holiday Tradition
For dessert, we were introduced to the new Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake. Frisch’s classic dessert, the Hot Fudge Cake, has received a holiday twist. If you love the original hot fudge cake, then you will definitely be in love with the peppermint hot fudge cake. Put it this way; I am not a fan of peppermint and I loved the Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake. The ice cream is the perfect sweetness. The peppermint chips sprinkled atop the whipped cream with cherry, is not overpowering as some peppermints can be. It is the perfect combination of ice cream layered between warm chocolate cake, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry sprinkled with candy cane bits, for the just a hint of peppermint crunch in every bite. Chef Greg did a great job putting a holiday twist on the classic hot fudge cake.
The Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake is available for a limited time (until Feb. 7). This is the first time since the original dessert debuted in 1970, that it has been offered in another flavor. Don’t worry all you original Hot Fudge Cake fans out there, it’s still available in restaurants. Both the original and the limited edition peppermint hot fudge cake are $3.29.
When dinner was over, we were off to see a performance of The Nutcracker, performed by the Cincinnati Ballet, at the Aronoff Center. From the very first performance of The Nutcracker in 1974, Frisch’s has been proud to be the Ballet’s primary sponsor. Wow! That is a long time for a corporation to sponsor an event. In fact, it is one of the longest-lasting examples of corporate sponsorship in American Arts history. Frisch’s Big Boy presents The Nutcracker runs Dec. 9-18, at the Aronoff Center.
Before the show, we were able to meet with some of the ballerinas and the Nutcracker. At showtime, I quickly found my seat and settled in to watch the performance. We were surprised at the end of the show with autographs from the dancers. I really enjoyed the performance and had a wonderful evening out on the town courtesy of Frisch’s Big Boy. Another bonus of the evening, when we were leaving the ushers gave us a coupon for a free peppermint hot fudge cake at Frisch’s. Woo Hoo!! More Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake, YUMM!
Hurry!! Get to Frisch’s before Feb. 7, to try the new peppermint hot fudge cake before it is gone for good.
