Best Bull Cartoon: Maury’s Tiny Cove

Best Bull Cartoon

Maury’s Tiny Cove has been packed full of flavor and West Side tradition since 1949. The dimly lit supper-club vibe backdrops an extensive menu consisting of all the classic steakhouse options: tender, juicy filets, seafood and chicken cooked just right, plus pasta, retro sides (shredded lettuce salads; a complimentary ramekin of pickles on every table) and a perfect martini. And in 1995, CityBeat writer Steve Ramos paid tribute to this comforting stalwart, comparing it to Shangri-La with a baked potato on the side: “Maury’s is a culinary temple to permanence. Dining fads come and go, health trends constantly change. But Maury’s stays the same: red meat, baked potatoes, salads. We’re not talking about some retro diner a la Johnny Rockets that tries to recreate an old-fashioned eatery with a ’90s twist. This is the real thing.” And you can’t forget Maury’s iconic sign, featuring a kitschy cartoon steer holding a martini. The restaurant is still a staple and was immortalized on screen in the Oscar-nominated, Cincinnati-filmed movie Carol. Maury’s Tiny Cove, 3908 Harrison Ave., Cheviot, maurys-steakhouse.com.
