Revolution Rotisserie & Bar in OTR

It may not be revolution-ary, 
but it is worth crowing about

      Findlay Market seems to be a jumping off point for some of Cincinnati's recent restaurants.  Revolution Rotisserie & Bar in OTR is the latest installment.  

Half Bird with House Made Sides
Starting with simple rotisserie chicken (hence the name from the revolutions on the rotisserie), the menu builds from there.  We experienced the Half  Bird that comes with a choice of
dipping sauces.  We chose the house made BBQ and Honey Sriracha to accompany ours.  I found them both a notch above the norm, but Eric preferred the BBQ sauce.  (Others are the Chipotle Ranch and Tzatziki.)  The chicken was tender with a flavorful singed skin that pulled rather easily from the bones.  It was adequate for the two of us to share along with two sides of house made Asian Slaw and Honey Glazed Carrots.  The slaw was very fresh and had a peanut dressing.  Eric enjoyed it, but it's not one of my favorites.  I was hoping they would knock the carrots out of the can, but instead they were a little overcooked.  Sorry, but no one serves them like Cracker Barrel!  There's several other sides including Tater Tots, which Katy and Denny (our companion diners) favored on an earlier 
MLK Salad with Chicken
visit.  For them, their fare that evening was the MLK Salad with added chicken to the field greens, parmesan cheese, cherry tomatoes and croutons with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.  They found it to be outstanding!

      Other future visits will include their Signature Pita Sandwiches.  All are named after famous humanitarians and can be made vegetarian or gluten-friendly.  There's also a nice selection of house created punch cocktails, beers and other libations.  It's an atmosphere that fits well into the OTR scene with its neighborhood appeal.
