Former drummer for the Ass Ponys and currently with The Kiss Me Everlasting, Dave Morrison’s schedule as a musician, videographer, and father to three boys means that his love for dining out has shifted to the lunch hour.
Jo An A longtime favorite for sushi, but the dinner menu is excellent too. 3940 Olympic Blvd., Erlanger, (859) 746-2634, joanjapanese.com
Habañero This is a family lunch favorite on a neighborhood walk. I love the sweet salsa, the Mad Max burrito, and craft beers on draft. The kids love the quesadillas and homemade chips. 358 Ludlow Ave., Clifton, (513) 961-6800, habanerolatin.com
Park + Vine I’m a total carnivore, but their vegan food is super tasty and satisfying. 1202 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, (513) 721-7275, parkandvine.com
Deli seven20 The Skoon (chunk albacore tuna, shaved parmesan, red onion, arugula, and balsamic mayo on focaccia) is my favorite sandwich on earth. Amazing chocolate chip cookies too. 720 E. Pete Rose Way, #170, downtown, (513) 381-3720, home.fuse.net/deliseven20

La Mexicana My favorite for Mexican food. The tomatillo salsa is excellent. I typically get the tacos—usually birria [goat], chorizo, and carnitas. Lots of meat choices! The enchiladas rock too. 642 Monmouth St., Newport, (859) 261-6112
MOTR Pub Great burgers, chili, and brunch to boot. They really take care of you if you’re a musician playing that night. Beware the pre-gig food coma though. 1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, (513) 381-6687, motrpub.com
