I have been following owner Bill Whitlow’s (@bcb_bill) journey on the opening of Rich’ s Proper Food and Drink located in Covington, Kentucky, and was more than excited to try their cocktails and eats the other day. Being open only four months, Rich’s Proper Food and Drink is located at the corner of 7th and Madison directly across from the Madison Event Center and Hotel Covington. It’s another amazing addition to the area that is a casual yet romantic and elegant Cocktail and Dining Experience, serving Upscale American Pub Fair with Southern Creole Influence. The beautiful bar is at the entrance and is equipped with huge talent featuring innovative cocktails. If you’re looking for a more cozy vibe, the tufted couch is where you should be sipping a moscow mule. Make sure to ask to see how big their signature Rich’s “proper” copper glasses are, you’ll thank me later, they are amazingly needed in every household. We decided to stay at the bar and started with oyster shooters. We then moved on to their delicious bloody mary’s paired with smoked salmon deviled eggs. I could eat 20 of their smoked salmon deviled eggs. If you turn to the back of the menu you will see their fresh selection of raw oysters. The oysters we tried were fantastically dashed with pesto. It was overall a perfect boozy lunch with amazing service. I already know I want to come back to Rich’s Proper Food and Drink for brunch, mainly because I saw Shrimp and Grits featured, and I am currently on the hunt for the best shrimp and grits in the city.
