Enjoy The Best Food & Wine in Cincinnati
Walk through pages of history as we stroll through Over the Rhine, just a few blocks north of downtown Cincinnati for the best local food and wine. We begin in beautiful Washington Park, dating back to the Victorian era, complete with a bandstand, fountains, statues and majestic trees.
Learn about majestic Music Hall and why it is said to be haunted! Dine in beautifully restored Italianate buildings which were former tenements and convenience stores.
Over the Rhine is a mecca for foodies with over dozens of local restaurants. Our Over the Rhine evening tour has so many to choose from that our locations vary from week to week.
We may begin our culinary adventure with a wonderful dish from an Israeli-owned restaurant nicknamed the hidden gem, or a lively Latin American spot or a converted historic church which is now an Ale House named after a Cincinnati-born president!
- Evening dining at four unique locally-owned restaurants in a restored historic neighborhood to sample the best wine and food in Cincinnati.
