The pandemic has not been kind to the hospitality industry. The Ohio Restaurant Association says more than 3,000 restaurants have shuttered across the state in 2021, many times due to continued fallout from the pandemic, including supply chain issues and staffing shortages. But there are plenty of other reasons to close a restaurant, including new ventures, expansions and more.
Whatever the reason, here are Greater Cincinnati bars and restaurants we said goodbye to in 2021. Thanks to all of them for the food, fun and memories.
