Mar 7, 2013 - Dining delights in Cincinnati
Cincinnati is rapidly becoming a vibrant, exciting city to live and work in, and this vibe is reflected in the wide dining choices available. A good way of getting around Cincinnati on a dining tour is with a bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Bus Charters Cincinnati. Travel through the city in comfort and style as your friendly and reliable charter bus driver takes you and your group on a tour of Cincinnati’s best dining places.
For some of the best steaks in Cincinnati, head over in your charter bus to the Precinct. Housed ia fortress of a building that used to be a police station, the Precinct is known for its steaks and seafood. Charter bus diners should try their grass fed rib eye steak, perfectly marbled without being overly fatty, or sample their bluepoint oyster, with its rich, velvety, meaty texture. Salad portions are huge, and practically constitute a meal in themselves. Other must tries include the Barrel-Cut Filet Mignon with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Freddie Salad, and Steak Collinsworth.
Maury’s Tiny Cove has been a Cincinnati West Side dining scene fixture since 1949. Decked out in the style of a 40s supper club, Maury’s exudes a vibe that makes charter bus visitors feel like life long regulars after one visit. The red vinyl booths are properly period, just right for enjoying those staples at Maury’s, a steak and a cocktail. Boasting an extensive menu of American favorites, most charter bus diners stick to Maury’s specialties, tender, juicy steaks, seafood and chicken cooked just right.
Charter bus visitors have always been impressed with the Rookwood Bar and Grill. Inhabiting a former pottery, this restaurant has been making waves in the local dining scene. The creative staff at Rookwood have come up with some very unique dishes, including Hanky Pankys on the appetizer list, French fries with Grippos seasoning and a crazy good Pork Belly Sandwich. For an odd twist to dessert, try the Beer Float, made with Jeni’s Ice Creams of Columbus. Dining options include the more formal main dining room, and step into the loft or one of the old kilns for a slightly more casual dining experience.
Cincinnati is rapidly becoming a cosmopolitan city, and this is reflected in the large range of ethnic restaurants in the city. For a taste of something different, charter bus visitors should try Emanu, which features eastern African cuisine. Focusing on dishes from Ethiopia and its neighbour Eritrea, dishes are served on communal plates, perfect for a large charter bus group to share a memorable meal. The menu focuses mainly on lamb and vegetables, with choices including Tsebhi Beghie, lamb simmered in red pepper sauce with onions and flavored with spices, Kilwa Sega, strips of marinated beef sautéed with onions, green pepper, and various chicken dishes.
