The best restaurants in Cincinnati

In the last decade, Cincinnati has risen in prominence among foodies, becoming a hub for craft brewers, mixologists, skilled artisans and celebrity chefs. Hundreds of new restaurants have cropped up in the city in recent years to take advantage of Cincinnati’s rise to culinary fame. USA Today and Food & Wine have taken notice, recently naming Cincinnati’s food scene among the best in American small cities. Cincy’s rich cultural history and regional status as a “border city” between the Midwest and the American South contributes to its growing dining scene. With an eclectic melting pot of immigrant populations serving up various cuisines, Germanic roots, Midwestern sensibility and Southern flair, you’re sure to find unique takes on staples (Cincinnati chili, anyone?) and bold new flavors in The Queen City.

The 12 best things to do in Cincinnati

Cincinnati is a city of contradictions. The Queen City (as it’s often called) has a unique spirit that matches Germanic Midwestern roots with Southern flair, small-town loyalty with cosmopolitan arts and amenities, and a river-view skyline with inland rent prices. Just over the river, Newport, Kentucky is home to some of the best nightlife in the region, while the ultra-trendy Over-the-Rhine neighborhood—formerly one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the U.S., by some reports—is now jampacked with breweries, music venues, wineries, and great restaurants. Add in a splash of bourbon, a backdrop of jazz, and more sports teams than you can shake a stick at, and that’s Cincy. With that in mind, we’ve gathered some of the best things for you to do to get a taste of the eclectic Queen City.
