What to Expect from the Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour
We offer the popular Cincinnati Streetcar Food and Culture Tour on Tuesdays and Friday afternoons. The tour route is the same, but the restaurants are different depending on which day you choose. The Friday tour involves the least amount of walking and is handicapped accessible. The Tuesday tour involves walking a few extra city blocks from the streetcar station to the restaurants.
On our Tuesday Streetcar Food & Culture Tour, nicknamed 'Art & Beyond' our first tasting begins in a century old restored hotel that is now a contemporary art center! We dine in the hotel restaurant Metropole where we enjoy their signature dish, burnt carrot salad featuring avocado, pickled onion, feta cheese and pumpkin seeds.
Next we visit the brand new Crown Republic Gastropub. This American Gastropub features small plates of everything made from scratch. We will sample the Chicken Gobbets with warm honey and the Beet Toast consisting of roasted beets, walnut tapenade, honey goat cheese on homemade ciabatta toast.
We hop on the streetcar to Over the Rhine and enjoy a wonderful taco from Bakersfield, one of those restaurants that you can never get into in the evenings!
