Over-the-Rhine received quite a complementary call-out in a Harper’s Bazaar article published on April 14.

“Brooklyn wishes it were as cool as the under-the-radar Over-the-Rhine,” reads the opening line of Harper’s Bazaar’s description of Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. 

In Harper's Bazaar’s article, “A Sublime Road Trip Through the Heart of the Midwest,” journalist Brandon Presser details the highlights of a Midwestern road trip that included stops in Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Chicago, Minneapolis and other iconic Heartland cities.

Presser praised Over-the-Rhine’s “conglomeration of chic supper spots, home furnishing boutiques, and Euro-style carriage houses.” In the article, Presser specifically mentioned Over-the-Rhine’s LOSANTI, a modern steakhouse owned by married couple Anthony and Haley Sitek. The couple also owns Downtown spots Crown Republic, Rosie’s Cocktails & Pies and La Cantina. 

Located just steps away from Washington Park, LOSANTI serves up steakhouse staples like prime filet mignon, along with pasta offerings, salads, sides and a long list of craft cocktails. 

The Harper’s Bazaar article also called out several other Over-the-Rhine establishments, including Pepp & Dolores, an Italian eatery featuring housemade pasta dishes like cacio e pepe; Somerset, a new, plant-filled edition to Over-the-Rhine’s bar scene; Brown Bear Bakery, a destination known for delicious and creatively flavored baked goods; and Pho Lang Thang, a Vietnamese eatery located near Findlay Market. 

During his Over-the-Rhine jaunt, Presser stayed at Downtown’s 21c Museum Hotel. Housed in the century-old Metropole Hotel, on the National Register of Historic Places, the 21c has been reimagined as a 156-room contemporary art museum-meets-boutique hotel with some of the historic flourishes intact (like the entryway tile floor). The space is also home to the Metropole restaurant and uber-hip seasonal rooftop patio.
