26 New Cincinnati Restaurants You Need to Try in 2018

West Side versus East Side, Skyline versus everything else — there are quite a few subjects that Cincinnati just can’t seem to agree on.

(Lucky us.) There’s no arguing that the Queen City has quickly become foodie heaven. From additional locations of tried-and-true favorites to brand new spots to score everything from ramen to gluten-free pastries, check out all of the latest additions to the Greater Cincinnati food scene that have opened in the past year.
