What to expect from the Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour
On our original Friday Downtown Streetcar Food Tour, we enjoy an authentic St. Louis deep dish pizza from Pi Pizzeria, the World’s Best Reuben from Izzy’s, the only continuing operating deli in Cincinnati since 1901. Next is Nicholson's Pub where we sample Belhaven Scottish Ale and enjoy an authentic Scottish dish. We’ll board the streetcar once more to Arnold’s, a quaint and quirky bar/restaurant operating continuously since 1861. We may enjoy a fried green tomato with pepper jack cheese and topped with homemade Pico de Gallo Green Tabasco Crème or one of their home made soups of your choice. We’ll board the streetcar once more riding north to Over the Rhine and disembark for our fourth tasting at Lachey’s, named after Cincinnati celebrities Nick & Drew Lachey. We will enjoy their French Toast with Braxton ‘Storm Ale” syrup & fresh berries. An alternate tasting may include a stop across the street at 3 Sweet Girl’s Cakery, the official bakery of the Flying Pig Marathon where you may have your pick of one of their yummy enticing cake pops! Whew! At this point you may choose to continue on your own, exploring the downtown neighborhoods along the street car route or hop back with us as we return to our original starting point.
On our new Tuesday Uptown Streetcar Food Tour, we begin at Bru Burger, a chic spot for burgers (over a dozen varieties) & other bites paired with a lengthy beer list. There we will enjoy their signature burger! Next we dine inside the Contemporary Arts Center at Bottle & Basket, a new bistro offering fresh innovative salads and sandwiches. We cross the street to visit We Olive for an informative tasting of olive oils and vinegar. The tasting there will surprise you! We board the streetcar and head to Findlay Market for a stop at Maverick Chocolate, where we sample piece after piece of hand crafted chocolate right in the store. We venture inside Findlay Market for a stop at Taste of Belgium to savor the taste of a true Belgian waffle made from thick dough and a coarse Belgian beet sugar that caramelizes inside the waffle iron. We end our tour in the historic Over-the-Rhine Brewery District at Rhinegeist Brewery, built within the skeleton of the old Moerlein bottling plant (1895) for a refreshing taste of their craft beer brewed right on the premises. After the tour concludes, you are welcome to relax at the brewery and enjoy a game of corn hole or visit their beautiful roof top terrace. Or you may wish to return to Findlay Market or simply ride the streetcar back to our original starting point.
CULTURAL, HISTORIC AND ARCHITECTURAL EXPERIENCES –
We begin out tour in the Banks area. There we’ll talk about the history of the Banks development, the controversial street car, the newest Class A office buildings rising to the sky, the creation of the various urban housing options, as well as everything of interest that we pass by! We will walk to the “Backstage Neighborhood” named in honor of the Aronoff Center and learn about the redevelopment of the theater district. We’ll pass by famous landmarks and end up in OTR (Over the Rhine) where we’ll talk about the history and redevelopment of this hippest new neighborhood.
