Salazar Moves Downtown
Jose Salazar’s eponymously named restaurant Salazar—which closed its Over-the-Rhine location at the end of last year—is getting another lease on life soon. The restaurant will reopen downtown by next spring in the old Saks Fifth Avenue space on Fifth Street. Salazar will continue to focus on fresh ingredients from local farmers and artisans, with an emphasis on seafood.

OTR Voted Among Best for Outdoor Dining
Over-the-Rhine was recently named one of 150 romantic locations for al fresco dining in 2024 by DatingAdvice.com. The site ran a survey of 3,000 respondents to identify the places that do outdoor dining right. “Known for its impressive 19th-century architecture, Over-the-Rhine is a revitalized area with a creative vibe, featuring craft breweries and artisanal eateries, perfect for a trendy, romantic night out.”
