What to expect from the Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour
At our first tasting, we may enjoy an authentic St. Louis deep dish pizza from Pi Pizzeria, or the World’s Best Reuben from Izzy’s, the best deli in Cincinnati since 1901. Our next tasting and cocktail is at Nicholson’s Gastropub, an authentic Scottish Pub, where we’ll enjoy their delicious Shepherd’s Pie or fish and chips served with a sample of Belhaven Ale in their cozy hearth room. 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 OTR 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.
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.
