Time flies when you’re having ful. This weekend marks the one-year anniversary of Cincy in NYC, a local talent takeover of the Big Apple—think classical music, ballet, and plenty of fine dining. Eight of Cincinnati’s most talented chefs packed up choice ingredients from nearby farms and artisan producers and flew to New York for an over-the-top gourmet feast at the legendary James Beard Foundation in Greenwich Village.
The menu was so well received that the chefs all agreed to offer their original dishes in their respective restaurants for this weekend only. Still looking for somewhere special to treat Mom? Venture out for a little restaurant hopping—appetizers at Salazar, salads at Table, and tuck in at Nectar for Julie Francis’s lamb with ful (a fava bean puree), morel mushrooms, asparagus, and preserved Meyer lemons, just to name a few—and bring a little NYC back to Cincy.
