The Yard House, the newest restaurant at The Banks, is set to officially open its doors at 11 a.m. Sunday. With 160 beer taps and an extensive menu of American fusion cuisine, it will serve lunch, dinner and late-night snacks.

Five Enquirer/ employees and one guest attended a preview Friday night. Between us, we tasted sample-size portions of 16 different dishes. (Full disclosure: Food and drinks at the preview were free.) Yes, the multitude of beers is a draw, but the food definitely held its own. We were wowed; in fact, we liked everything we tried and all agreed — we’ll be back.

95 East Freedom Way, Downtown. 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Sunday-Thursday; 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Friday-Saturday. 513-381-4071;
