Spring Restaurant Week March 11-20

      A relatively new concept to Cincinnati, the original Restaurant Week began in New York City during the Democratic Convention of 1992.  It was the brainchild of Tim Zagat of the Zagat Restaurant Guide and the late Joe Baum, a top restaurateur in NYC.  It began as a means of sparking business and showcasing the area’s culinary reputation.  Each establishment creates a prix fixe 3-course menu of either appetizer, entree and dessert or salad, appetizer and entree.  Today, it has spread to cities nationwide and is in its 6th year in Cincinnati.  

      Get ready for another amazing Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week running from Friday, March 11 to Sunday, March 20.  For the first time, it will encompass two full weekends.  Check out their website for the full list of restaurants and some sample menus.  And, more importantly, treat yourself by supporting some of our area’s finest culinary establishments!
