According to science, humans can go a couple of weeks without eating food. But thankfully that’s not necessary in Cincinnati (unless you’ve embarked on some kind of personal hunger strike).

This city’s ever-expanding dining scene is home to eateries that run the spectrum from budget-friendly finds and ethnic treasures to brewpubs, au courant cafés and luxury establishments that rival some of the best restaurants in the nation — not that we’re bragging.

It’s a real embarrassment of riches, whether you’re a gourmand or just grabbing a bite, and this year’s Dining Guide delves into the food scene by asking local experts how they create favorite menu items for their respective restaurants and the best ways to complement cuisine with curated selections of beer, wine and cocktails. We also talk to the team behind Tiger Dumpling about its latest plans for expansion (Kroger, anyone?) and offer plentiful suggestions on where to eat now — including more than 30 pages of restaurant listings divided into handy, dandy cuisine categories. 

We’re getting hungry just thinking about it…
