These Are Cincinnati's 11 Best New Restaurants

Each year, CityBeat curates the Best Of Cincinnati issue, highlighting the city’s most outstanding entities in categories including Arts & Culture, Shops & Services and Eats, among others. The responsibility of selecting these exceptional people and places is divided between our readers and staff. But for this issue here, we’re focusing on our readers’ favorites. This year, more than half a million votes were tallied to determine our Reader Picks. Readers logged on to the ballot site to vote for their favorites in broad categories like Best Chili, Best Sushi and Best Pizza, with more niche topics including Best Raw Bar, Best Salads and Best Restaurant Design. But these were the top 10 vote-getters for Best New Restaurant, as selected by CityBeat readers. And, as you can see, there’s a little bonus pick: two eateries tied for No. 7.
