The Bistro – Cincinnati

After being home for practically a second, I was on a plane again. This time I headed to cincinnati. No, it wasn’t by choice. I was staying downtown so the dining selections were a bit limited. But I did find some great eats. The Bistro is a french joint where I had a lovely dinner on a Sunday night. Downtown is pretty dead at night. And on a weekend, it’s particularly dead. This place is pretty adorable, but there weren’t too many people dining. The weather was definitely turning into fall, so I had a southern tier pumpking beer, which was just right.
I started with the french onion soup because the bartender told me it was a must eat. And well, when in a french restaurant, you might as well do it. I personally love french onion soup, so I was a big fan of this. But I suppose if you’re not into it, then you won’t like it! Onions, bread, and cheese. What’s not to like? And it was super duper hot, ripe for burning the roof of your mouth.
And I also got the Neltner Farm heirloom tomato salad with house pulled mozzarella and opal basil vinaigrette.┬áIt was perfect. The mozzarella is amazingly mild and melt-in-your-mouth. I only got appetizers but if I could have eaten more, I would have loved to have tried the main entrees. Cincinnati, you’re lucky to have such a nice dining option in your otherwise quiet downtown.

    It looks like you spend a decent amount of time in downtown Cincinnati. There are a TON of choices– you just have to look for them. Next time you’re in town, you should check out Senate in Over-the-Rhine (a very quick cab ride from CBD or a short walk) or Mayberry on Vine Street. Downtown isn’t dead at all at night on Friday and Saturday nights. Promise!
