    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.

    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 think Scotti's might be open on sundays. On Vine St near the library, awesome traditional Italian, fantastic atmosphere, they've been there since the 20's. In the DiMarco family, XU Alum Marco DiMarco runs it.

    If they're not open on Sunday head try Dee Felice Cafe in Covington. If you get lucky you'll get some Jazz with your cajun food.

    Or back on the Italian side, Pompilio's in Newport. Barresi's in Deer Park is also excellent if you're on the north side of town.

    Like Thai?? Bangkok Bistro on Erie Ave in Hyde Park.

    Or if you want to spend a pile of money, Head to The Cincinnatian Hotel and try The Palace.

    Of course, I've been gone for 6 years, don't know any of the new places.

    Johnny and Carlo's - I think also owned by Jeff Ruby - the food is fantastic.

    The best meal you can get in Cincinnati is at Dana's
