Food Scene
By far the best meal I've ever had! Great place to share several dishes and not break the bank either. Jose Salazar is a very talented local chef and opened this small restaurant several years ago. Very quaint and I recommend a reservation if they have it available. He also owns Mitas, a much larger space, on 5th and Race near The Reserve and it doesn't dissapoint either.

One of my faves to eat! Great fun if you like to try inventive and share plates much like tapas-style. If they have the lamb neck, order it early so they don't run out!

We love their Empanadas and they're only $2 each at the bar. Get a variety and share. Our faves are the pork belly, steak, and chicken. You'll find specials throughout the week. Pasta night is a must on Tuesdays and the gnocchi with short rib is divine.

Graeter's is a local favorite for ice cream and is made in an old fashioned style french pot. It's incredibly rich and had a silky smooth texture. The local favorite is the Black Raspberry Chip. But, I also love Coconut Chip too.

By far the best ribs in Cincinnati! It has a dry rub with sugar that lacquers the meat and with the sauce, it's pure lip-smacking good! Several locations around Cincinnati but with this one in Findlay Market, you can also check out the market and other local shops there too.

Love wine but not the stuffy wine bar atmosphere, then this is the place for you. It's a chill spot with a great wine selection including the owner's family Sangiovese recipe that they make in the basement.

If you love Bourbon and want to experience something special, this spot just across the river in Newport, Kentucky, is where every local Bourbon lover goes to try a variety of bourbons. This is home to the largest bourbon collection in the USA. Peter Newberry, the owner and connoisseur is incredibly knowledgable. It's a great experience to do a sampling with him. Be sure to check the hours before you go, they do have limited hours and close the entire month of January. I also highly recommend his Old Fashioned, it's amazing!

This is one of the finest Zoo's in the country and home to our local legend Fiona, the hippo. It has to be above 55 degrees for the hippos to be out in their cove. But, the zoo is still amazing regardless. The Festival of Lights is a must see for all the locals in the winter months.

If you're up for a bit of a drive, consider a fun kayaking trip down the Little Miami River. It's quite popular with the locals especially on the weekends, so be sure to reserve your kayak or canoe in advance. They have a few different lengths of trips. So, pack a picnic and find a great bank to stop to enjoy lunch and take a dip.
