Cincinnati’s Top Ten Restaurants– Cincinnati Magazine, March 2008.

I just received my March issue of Cincinnati Magazine– and here they are:

1. Boca
2. Jean Robert at Pigall’s
3. Orchids at Palm Court
4. Nicola’s
5. Slims
6. Jean Ro Bistro
7. Cumin
8. Jo An
9. Nectar
10. Daveed’s at 934

As usual, Boca and Pigall’s flip flop for top restaurant. I’m surprised to see Slims and Cumin on this list (not because they’re not good, they are, but because these lists skew towards the expensive and “special”) and I thought Daveed’s would place higher. What do you think? Which restaurants were snubbed, and which don’t deserve to be on there?

Personally, I don’t think JeanRo should be on there– it’s mediocre at best, with overly pretentious service for the “concept”. Replace it with Honey and I’d agree with the list.
