Energy, creativity, and the desire for a really great taco inspired the Nada concept. Downtown Cincinnati needed a place to go, revive, and relax after the busy pace of the metropolitan work scene. Since 2007, Nada has been delighting guests with craveable twists on the classics and border-blurring dishes inspired by food from around the globe. Nada has expanded to Columbus, Indianapolis, Nashville, and their first east coast installment in North Bethesda, MD. Each location is integrated into the local community and focuses on delivering an approachable, casual Mexican experience in a beautiful space. Snag guacamole and salsa to share, and dig in to punched-up tacos, Nada is all about great food and good times with amigos.

Price: Moderate
• Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service • Cincinnati
Booked 36 times today
Standing high above the city on the 10th floor of the City Club Apartments, at 309 Vine Street; resurrected from the history that has stood here before our time, Shires' Rooftop is inspired by the first amusement resort in this part of the country, Shires' Garden. Though the original Shires' Gardens burned to the ground, "in a most picturesque fire," the legacy that was left behind is everlasting and an integral part of the Queen City's history. The creation of the Matinee Performance, the regal guests Shires' hosted, an unsolved murder and other noteworthy events that took place at the original Shires' Gardens, are an inspiration to our program that we look forward to sharing with you.

    If you're in Cincinnati and want an incredible meal with excellent service, Boca is our favorite restaurant, hands down. The menu changes in the right ways, stays the same in the ways you'd hope for, and the wait staff are courteous and engaging. We only eat there for special occasions and they take note of that and go above and beyond to serve us and make our experience memorable.

    As always everything was absolutely perfect. Amiah (I hope I spelled that correctly) was the best host you could possibly ask for.

    This is my second visit to The Davidson and it won’t be my last. This time, a group of seven women gathered for a happy hour toast to a friend’s new job with bottles of a delicious cremant. We tried both the fondue and the roasted eggplant and both were outstanding. As others have written, the tableside preparation of the eggplant is entertaining, and the bartender was right to encourage us to scrape up every last bite. I’d reserved a table for four for those who might want dinner and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating when it turned out six decided to stay. Everyone enjoyed their order whether it was a bowl of Palomino’s mushroom bisque or a full entree. We enjoyed a very drinkable house red wine. The only disappointment was with the scallops: the butter overpowered the dish and ruined the balance of flavors. We look forward to returning to sit outside on this busy downtown corner!
