The Best Restaurants in CINCINNATI

Cincinnati, the third largest city in Ohio, is nicknamed the Queen City. Sitting on the Ohio-Kentucky border opposite Covington and Newport, Kentucky, it is famous for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, billed as the largest Oktoberfest celebration outside Munich, and Bockfest, the country's oldest German-style bock beer festival. One of the country's oldest bars, the celebrated Arnold's Bar and Grill, is in downtown Cincinnati. Cincinnati has been called the "Chili Capital of America" and "of the World" because it has more chili restaurants per capita than any other city. Local specialties include Cincinnati chili and Goetta, a German-inspired sausage made of ground pork and pinhead oatmeal, usually fried and eaten for breakfast. French chef Jean-Robert de Cavel, who has received three James Beard nominations for Best Chef in the Midwest, has just opened his newest restaurant, Le Bar a Boeuf, in Walnut Hills.
