All the Local Chefs, Tasty Bites and Bourbon from the 2018 'Meet the Chefs' Event

To kick off Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week (Sept. 24-30), CityBeat threw our annual Meet the Chefs party, inviting guests to meet a few of the local chefs who are participating in the upcoming event. The celebration was held at Fueled Collective and offered guests a sneak-peek tasting of what a few local restaurants may be serving up during Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week. Along with bites, we sampled cocktails crafted with GCRW sponsor Maker's Mark and guests could take home a Maker's Mark glass hand-dipped in the distillery's signature red wax. In addition to treats, a Q&A was held, giving guests the opportunity to ask the chefs about their inspiration, favorite dishes, bourbon recipes and go-to comfort meals. Be sure to visit greatercincinnatirestaurantweek.com to see all the participating restaurants and menus for this year's event.
