Mag encourages readers to "Check out Cincinnati's New Cool"
It seems every day a new love letter to Cincinnati makes its rounds on the Internet. The latest is from New York Magazine’s Weekend Travel
section, where Alex Schechter touts Cincy as a perfect three-day trip thanks to
the city's breweries, restaurants and neighborhood redevelopment.
to Stay: Downtown’s 21c Museum Hotel
and The Cincinnatian are mentioned for their accommodations, along with a few
area Airbnb picks.
Where to Eat: Metropole, Salazar and Sotto — no surprise to local foodies. There’s
even a cute explanation of goetta (“oatmeal-infused sausage hash”).
What to Do: The article sums up a local urbanite’s ideal Saturday in OTR with
stops at Washington Park, the Christian Moerlein Brewing Co., Findlay Market
Insider’s Tip: Cincinnati’s beer brewing past and present is certainly a draw for
tourists. Schechter suggests the American Legacy underground tour, where folks can explore beneath the
streets of OTR.
Oddball Day: A hodgepodge of noteworthy Cincinnati destinations: munch at Holtman’s Donuts, Senate
and The Eagle; Shop Jack Wood Gallery, Steam Whistle Letterpress and Article;
peep local art at the latest Red Door Project installation; and check out a
concert at the soon-opening Woodward Theatre.
And it looks like CityBeat
got a quick shout out in the Links section, along with Soapbox Media and 3CDC. Thanks!
Go here for more on the latest “no
seriously, Cincinnati is cool” article your friends are sharing.

As you might have already heard, Jean-Robert at Pigall's will be closing on Feb. 28. So if you really want to impress your date on Valentine's Day take her (or him) to Pigall's for one last fling; after all, Cincinnati might never get another four-star restaurant again. Enjoy it while it lasts. Also recommended: Primavista, The Summit, The Cincinnatian and 20th Century Theatre.
