C-6Dining the Cincinnati enquirer Friday. October 25. 1991 J's nets diners who want to lighten up has opened its eighth store. The new Oakley location 2938 Markbreit Ave. is Spooner's southernmost store, although more expansions are planned that will bring the chain deeper into the heart of the city. Spooners, founded in 1985 by Mike "Spooner" Bauer, makes its pizzas with California tomatoes, Wisconsin cheeses, homemade dough and sauces and fresh toppings. A TASTE OF SPAIN: Cincinnati's Hyatt is celebrating the flavors of Spain through Nov. 10 on its Sungarden Lounge, Findlay's Restaurant and room service menus. Entrees run $4.95 to $32.95 (that's the paella for two) and include roasted leg of lamb with potatoes and roasted vegetables; chicken stew with peppers, onions, carrots and turnips; Ro-maine lettuce with Spanish ham; grilled salmon with beans, potatoes, olives and artichokes; and, of course, paella, a rich stew stocked with chicken, pork, shrimp and mussels. There are also tapas ($2.25-$4.50) to start every meal, a lineup of feisty Spanish cocktails, and Spanish desserts, including a flan and baked fruit on skewers with orange liqueur. The Hyatt, 579-1234, is at 151 West Fifth Street, downtown; Findlay's serves 6:30 a.m.-mid-night daily; Sungarden is 11 a.m.-9 p.m., later if there's a crowd.

Add another player to the lineup of restaurants serving a lighter and cheaper lunch. J's Fresh Seafood, responding to a tighter economy and a breed of diners looking for a lighter and healthier lunch, is the latest to lighten up. J's principal owner Jimmy Gher-ardi stopped short of a complete menu overhaul; the place has too many devoted lunch regulars to do anything that drastic. Instead, a few new sandwiches and pasta dishes have been added and a few old menu favorites have been combined or retooled. Among them . . . Swordfish burger honest, a swordfish burger is the most talked-about new item. It's fresh swordfish, ground and char-grilled, then topped with a spicy yogurt sauce and served on a sesame bun with a Greek salad on the side. It's a bizarre-sounding concoction, but the sandwich is such a hit that Gherardi's partner Dave Wall thinks it's on its way to becoming a signature item. "We ran it as a special for a couple of months; after awhile, people started asking for it on a daily basis so we added it and now it's a seller." It's $8.50. Island sandwich is also new and also selling. The open-face sandwich is turkey breast, thousand island dressing, tomato, melted mozzarella, crab meat, a dash of basil, chopped green onion, crushed macadamia nuts and a grilled pineapple garnish. It's $7.50. There are some new chicken items as well: The Amish-raised chicken breast sandwich ($6.95), is char-grilled, then topped with sau-teed onions, mushrooms and Swiss cheese; the chicken Caesar ($7.75) is a chicken breast, char-grilled and served atop J's Caesar salad; there's also a new pasta dish, also topped with Amish-raised chicken ($7.95). J's dinner menu remains unchanged. The antipasto table, included with most meals, does change with the season and availability of fresh items. J's, 2444 Madison Road in the Regency, 871-2888, serves lunch 11:30 a.m. -2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; dinner is 5:30-9:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 5:30-11 p.m. Friday, 5-11 p.m. Saturday, and 5-9 p.m. Sunday; all major credit cards. GRAMMER'S STILL CLOSED: Grammer's, closed since the June 29 Garlic Festival, will remain that way a while longer maybe forever. It was scheduled to reopen the day after Labor Day, but "the truth is, I don't know, if we'll reopen," owner Jim Tarbell says. "If we do, I think Grammer's needs to change . . . maybe turn LARRY CORYELL Jazz Guitar 'The Very Best of the Best" XavieT Jazz Guitar Series October 27, 1991 -?;30pm. $10.00 Xavler University , Center Theatre 3815 Ledgewood Drive Phone: 745-3161 RED CLAY JACK-O-LANTERNS FOR HALLOWEEN LARGE SELECTION OF CHRISTMAS GOODIES chick cut our WICKER BASKETS l.n. Jim Knippenberg Dining into more of a bar and less fine dining; become more casual and less expensive so it can appeal to the young adult crowd between 35 and 40. "I guess selling is an option," Tarbell said, "but I have not pursued it rigorously. I'm taking a wait-and-see attitude." Grammer's is still available for private parties. "I have a number of them between now and Christmas," Tarbell said, "but beyond that, I just don't know." DINNER ON THE GREEN: Diners in Cincinnati's northern suburbs are doing a lot of eating at Molloy's on the Green, an all-American-type restaurant in what used to be Greenhills Country Club. Positioned so there's a broad view of the golf course, Molloy's is run by Ken Riley he also runs Riley's Family Restaurant in Greenhills Shopping Center and specializes in classic American dishes with beef filet mignon and strip sirloin are the big sellers and chicken. Some of the biggest sellers, Riley says, are what he calls the heartland selections, including sweet and sour pork, Swiss steak, and a California chicken cooked with carrots and red and green peppers. Entrees are all in the $8-$12.95 range. Molloy's does lunch as well. Mostly items are sandwiches running $4-$6, but there's also a daily blue-plate special that usually runs $4.50. Meatloaf seems to be the biggest blue-plate seller. Molloy's seats 110 in the restaurant and has a lounge and a 350-seat connecting banquet facility. There's an acoustic guitar on Saturday nights; and full bands, mostly golden oldie, rock 'n' roll or big bands, and open to the public parties in the banquet room on weekends when it's not booked. Molloy's is at 10 Enfield Road, off Winton Road near the Greenhills shopping center; reservations, 851-5434, are accepted but not required. It serves lunch Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to whenever the crowd dies down; dinner is 5-10:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 5-midnight Friday and Saturday. Visa and MasterCard.

(The woman who wears my jewelry is an educated, professional woman - chic but in a conservative way. She is not hard-edged. She is a gentle person.)
