ABOUT ABOUT

On October 6, 1927, George Remus, “the King of the Bootleggers,” shot his wife dead in front of rush hour traffic. Charged with capital murder, Remus chose to represent himself against famed Prosecutor Charles P. Taft II in one of the most bizarre courtroom dramas in American history.
May’s Murder on the Menu unravels the rise, fall, and murder trial of George Remus between a four-course, 1920’s inspired menu. Each course is paired with an installment in this infamous chapter in Cincinnati crime and a Prohibition-era cocktail.
