Eat Local Cincy's Restaurant Week runs through May 19
This week, more than 15 local restaurants are participating in Eat Local Cincy’s Restaurant Week, showcasing special menus with local ingredients through Sunday, May 19. From Northern Kentucky to Lebanon, local restaurants are offering the Restaurant Week special of three courses
for $33.13. Customers create their own combination of an appetizer, salad
and one entrée from the provided lists of options. Dishes vary by restaurant based on the regular menu,
but individual specials feature locally-sourced items from area farmers and producers.
include Behle Street Café in Covington, Mac’s Pizza Pub in Clifton Heights,
The Golden Lamb in Lebanon, Italian hotspot Primavista overlooking the city
and many more. Individual menus boast the very best dishes from their
establishments, ranging from seafood to steak to simple and intricate pasta
dishes. The large number of participating restaurants provides customers with
an opportunity to experience a range of flavors, portions and atmospheres,
from casual and family-friendly to fine dining.
Eat Local Cincy
works to promote local, independent restaurants both in the Cincinnati community
and on the national scale. The group strives to raise awareness about the
unique local flavor Cincinnati restaurants can provide, championing the talents
of individual chefs, the passion of local owners, and the benefits of
purchasing goods from local producers. Comparing independent restaurants to
bookstores, hardware stores and coffee shops, the Eat Local Cincy group
considers local dining integral to maintaining a vibrant community, successful
charities and increased culinary and cultural strength. Unlike large
franchises, Eat Local Cincy and its independent restaurants celebrate
passionate individuals and employees who take pride not only in their own
establishment but in the Cincinnati community as a whole.
Along with its annual
Restaurant Week, Eat Local Cincy also features a year-round rewards program
that provides customers with points every time they dine at an Eat Local Cincy
establishment. These points can then be redeemed during another visit at any of
the participating restaurants. Visit Eat Local Cincy at

events and individual menus.
