On our 3 hour Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour, we work in conjunction with some of the best restaurants in the city. We have a huge selection to choose from, so the restaurants will vary from tour to tour. Depending on their availability, we visit We Olive for an informative tasting of olive oils and vinegar, plus a sample of wine and an array of charcuterie board tastings.
At Nicholson's Pub we enjoy an authentic Scottish dish or at Bru Burger, a gourmet burger and inside the Contemporary Arts Center at Melt Eclectic Cafe, a new bistro, we enjoy fresh innovative salads and sandwiches.
We’ll board the streetcar and travel a few blocks north, where we may visit Arnold’s, a quaint and quirky bar/restaurant operating continuously since 1861 or continue riding north to Over the Rhine. In OTR, tastings are on the sweet side featuring 3 Sweet Girl’s Cakery, Quaintrelle, Holtman's Donuts or Brown Bear Bakery. Each spot is better than the next!
We head north to Findlay Market, where stops may include Maverick Chocolate, where we sample piece after piece of hand crafted chocolate made right in the store. Another new addition is Harvest Pizza featuring a new twist on traditional pizza toppings or The Rhined, an artisan cheese and wine shop.
We venture inside Findlay Market, where we may stop at Taste of Belgium to savor the taste of a true Belgian waffle and a quick look around.
We end our tour in the Findlay Market area with a visit to the Epicurean Mercantile Company where we tour the newest urban market in the city and enjoy a unique tasting from the The Counter located within EMC.
