Proud Hound Coffee
    6717 Montgomery Road, Silverton
    Located in a 4,000-square-foot warehouse, the new café officially opened on June 26 — a milestone the team has been chasing for years. Since launching in 2019, Proud Hound has been helping Cincinnatians get their caffeine fix via pop-ups with its coffee truck and cart, wholesale operations, events and collaborations. The flagship location, complete with a coffee bar and full-service kitchen, also houses its roasting facility, viewable by customers through large glass windows. Customers can expect all the usual espresso-based beverages — cortados, cappuccinos, americanos, lattes and mochas — alongside cold brews, pour overs and drip coffees. Not into coffee? The café also slings teas, hot chocolate and more. You can even order a picturesque blue matcha. The kitchen, run by executive chef Kierstin Dudley, serves up Southern-centric breakfast and brunch with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and seasonal dishes.

Oakley Kitchen Food Hall
    3715 Madison Road, Oakley
    Greater Cincinnati's culinary scene is expanding rapidly, and with the opening of incubator kitchen and event space Oakley Kitchen Food Hall, area chefs and food entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to develop their ideas, skills and products even further. The food hall has softly opened its eight local food vendors and soon will host its grand opening in tandem with the opening of hall's The Cutaway Bar. The establishment will feature a joint-use space: eight kitchen pods featuring start-ups and ghost kitchens inhabit the first floor, along with Campfire Foods Commissary, the forthcoming bar (with Mike Stankovich, the local bar owner behind Longfellow, at the helm) and a marketplace that offers local products from both new and established local businesses. Restaurants include La Petite Frite, Khana, Jimmie Lou's, Loakley, Parts & Labor, Onolicious Hi and Olive Tree. Upstairs, Oakley Kitchen Food Hall will feature a 10,000 square-foot seating space/rentable event venue that can be used for food-centric parties, private events and weddings.

Nomad
    225 Fairfield Ave., Bellevue
    Bellevue bar and eatery Nomad is opening its doors this September. They will serve craft cocktails and beer, but the main attraction will be the boozy (and virgin) milkshakes and tater tot baskets. The space is meant to bring together the adventurers in life to relax, connect and reflect on their journeys. Eventually a vintage double-decker bus will be parked in the courtyard to provide an eclectic seating option, but for now, they will utilize the space for more breezy, string-lit seating.

Losanti
    1401 Race St., Over-the-Rhine
    The boutique steakhouse from the team behind downtown’s Crown Republic Gastropub took over the former Anchor-OTR space. Its name is a reference to the original Cincinnati settlement of Losantiville, which dates back to 1788. The steakhouse opened in the fall and has revamped the space to offer a non-traditional take on the typical white-tablecloth concept, featuring casual seating arrangements for diners, a bar and a patio that overlooks Washington Park and Music Hall.

In the summer, the indoor market expands outside and welcomes musicians, performers and special events to the mix." — Paula Froelich for Newsweek
