    Best Restaurant in Cincy

    I am coming to Cincy on business tommorrow. It has been several years since I've stayed overnight in the area and had time to go to a nice meal. I am staying at the Mariott Riverfront Hotel in Covington.

    I would like some opinions on what the best restaurant in the city is. I am not concerned with the best deal/best price. Simply the best restaurant.

    I am a steak/meat eater, but I am willing to try a non-steakhouse if it a truly exceptional establishment.

    I tried to make a reservation at Jeff Ruby's on the Waterfront, but it is closed on Sundays.

    Close to downtown Cincy/Covington would be nice. I appreciate people recommendations/help.

    Thanks.

    As a nonsteakhouse option, there is always Montgomery Inn. Great place to go for the ribs.

    I hope you're kidding.

    The Precinct on Columbia Parkway. It is my favorite Jeff Ruby restaurant, and it is open on Sundays. It's about a 5 minute drive from downtown, and I like it better than Jeff Ruby's downtown and the Waterfront.

    I have to agree with you. I've never understood the attraction. It's OK, but there are a number of places I'd choose first.

    If you want a great Italian place, try Antonio's in West Chester / Liberty Township. It's at Cincinnati Dayton Road and SR -129.

    Need to find a place for dinner tonight.

    The girlfriend is coming into town tonight, and up until a little bit (once I got an actual job), we didn't go out much. She doesn't want to go someplace terribly fancy, but we're looking for someplace new that isn't fried food. We live in the Hyde Park/Mt Lookout area. Anyone give me some good places to eat?

    Thanks in advance. Winner gets reps and a beer next time at Dana's/Cintas.

    Have you tried Indigo on the corner of Erie and Edwards? Don't know exactly what you are looking for, but that place has a pretty nice offering of meals across the board. If you go, sun-dried tomatoes there are a must.

    Scotti's on Vine Street is really wonderful. It's authentic Italian food, and it is very tasty. You can call and make reservations.
