Cincinnati is full of great restaurants. From American classics to ethnic cuisine, you’re sure to find a spot that suits your tastes.
Here are some of our favorites:
The Main Line Restaurant and Lounge
The Main Line offers an upscale dining experience with a menu that changes with the seasons and the chef’s moods. The staff is friendly and attentive without being intrusive, which makes it a great place for a quiet dinner with friends or a loud party with family members.
The Melting Pot
This neighborhood bar/restaurant has an impressive selection of beer, wine and spirits. If you’re in the mood for something less traditional than their signature cocktails, try their craft beers or meads — they have several options for each category. If you’d rather stick with the classics, order yourself a whiskey neat or on the rocks. You won’t be disappointed!
Cincinnati Chili parlor and Restaurant
Whether you grew up eating Cincinnati chili or you’re trying it for the first time ever, this restaurant is sure to satisfy your craving for this spicy meat sauce served over spaghetti noodles (or tater tots). If you like spicy foods but don’t want too much heat, ask for their mild version — it’s still full of flavor without burning your mouth. If you’re feeling adventurous, try their traditional chili with cheese and onions or go for a combination of two different meats in your bowl. You can’t go wrong here!
Okto Greek Restaurant
Okto Greek Restaurant is a must-visit when you’re in Cincinnati because this is one of the top restaurants in Cincinnati. The food is delicious and authentic, but what makes this place truly stand out from the rest are their gyros — they’re served on a pillowy pita bread with fresh vegetables and tzatziki sauce that’s to die for! You can’t go wrong with any of their other dishes either; try them all to decide which one is your favorite.
