Since 2016, Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week has been offering a curated craft dining experience at restaurants across the city: chef prepared, special multi-course prix fixe menus priced between $25 and $35. Diners pick and choose from course options to build their own three-dish dinner. Basically, you get a lot of fancy, delicious food for cheap for one week only.
This year's event is bigger than ever, with more than 35 restaurants presenting three-course meals, from New American eateries and steakhouse favorites to upscale Italian and Thai. New restaurants joining the event this time around include The Anchor-OTR, Butcher and Barrel, Court Street Lobster Bar, Matt the Miller's Tavern, Montgomery Inn and more. And with liquor sponsors Marker's Mark and Tito's Handmade Vodka, plenty of these eateries are complementing their culinary creations with specialty cocktails from either or both distilleries (for an additional cost).
This exclusive weeklong event is for locals to experience fine dining at a wallet-friendly cost at some of their favorite restaurants and new ones they have yet to try. (And, yes, CityBeat does put on the event, but we're also diners: If there's one thing humans on a journalist's salary love, it's a good deal — especially when it comes to good food.)
