Tango Cincinnati's Current Favorite Restaurants in no particular order:
A NEW MEXICAN RESTAURANT IN NORTHSIDE! DJANGO'S TACOS
is excited to be a part of Northside and is looking forward to getting to know everyone. Incredibly flavorful tacos, only $3.00! Great outside seating area. Public parking immediately b ehind the restaurant. Hours: Monday 5:00 - 11:00; Tuesday - Saturday 11:30 - 12:00
YET ANOTHER NEW MEXICAN RESTAURANT IN NORTHSIDE! TACOCRACY. Tacos with a flair! More incredibly flavorful tacos Hours: Monday 4:00 - 11:00. Try both new taco restaurants and compare them! We did and found it almost impossible to decide which is better. They both have so much to offer!
TAKE THE CAKE Cincinnati's Five Star breakfast and lunch place! We hesitate to list it here because we love it so much we want to keep it a secret so it doesn't end up with long lines every Sunday morning. "Simply fabulous" doesn't begin to describe it. An eclectic menu that has something for everyone, including us vegetarians!
Another incredible restaurant moves to Northside to join the illustrious parade of amazing restaurants along Hamilton Avenue! KoSho offers more than just Sushi--discover fine Japanese meals and soups served in a traditional fashion. Public parking is available immediately behind the restaurant.
PICNIC AND PANTRY (Formerly THE HIDEAWAY), 4163 Hamilton Avenue. Great food and cozy atmosphere. The Hideaway serves generous portions of tasty, gourmet comfort food - and it's all very affordable. Right next to Northside Tavern. In fact, you can take your Tavern beer into The Hideaway, or your Hideaway food into the Tavern!
Fabulous new Indian restaurant! DUSMESH, 944 Ludlow Avenue, 221-8900, at the bottom of Clifton
Avenue near the police station, across from Cincinnati State. We were impressed by the luncheon buffet - the best Indian buffet we have ever tasted in Cincinnati! Vegetarian selections! DUSMESH opened at the old location of the Indian Palace, which went out of business oweing to few customers. BIG CHANGE! The kitchen and dining area were completely renovated by the new owners and the new menu is both extensive and exqusite. We've noticed that the parking lot is always jammed--a good sign! Rave reviews on Trip Advisor! Our current favorite for a tasty lunch buffet.
Next to Northside Tavern. Vegetarian sandwiches. Some meat for you carnivores. Really great sandwiches!
We are listing this one first because we dine here so often and are always surprised by the variety of
the menu, the quality of the menu, and how much it changes. The world's only curry ice-cream
can sometimes be had here. See www.meltcincy.com for details.
HONEY Fabulous Restaurant! Eclectic menu. They opened a couple of years ago
in the old BOCA location, a block East of the Feldenkrais center. This restaurant is our pick for one of the best in Cincinnati, and we are sure it will be earning all the
appropriate awards and accolades soon! Call for a reservation as they are usually packed! Moderately priced. The Enquirer food editor has already given it a top-rated review! HoneyRestaurant.com.
THE COMET, 4579 Hamilton Ave (one mile West up Hamilton Avenue towards College Hill).
A cool place for casual dining or drinks. Best Burritos in the city of Cincinnati! TheCometBar.com
SIDEWINDERS, coffee house on Hamilton close to Norhside Tavern.
Sidewinders seems to have set a new standard for coffee shops to beat. The interior is inviting and interesting art always hangs on the walls. The menu includes five-star coffee, good teas and good food. There are even vegetarian selections. If you really want to take in the atmosphere , go when they have music in the back room. The courtyard is small and sweet. We heard the Noyse Merchants perform early music there and it was fabulous! Here's Sidewinders Website
Northside has ample parking areas!
NORTHSIDE TAVERN, 4163 Hamilton Avenue in Northside, received
Best of Cincinnati 2005 from Cincinnati Magazine. Not really a restaurant, but you can pick up food
next door at THE HIDEAWAY or at MELT and bring it in to eat with your beer. Great beer on tap. Bands start late on
weekends. GREAT AMBIENCE! This is the only tavern in Cincinnati that reminds us of pubs in Europe.
Doesn't have the slick, corporate look. You won't feel like a tourist, and sometimes the music will
knock your socks off. One night we found that Slavic Soul Party
had come from the heart of New York City to amaze and captivate everyone there. Totally changed our mind about what kind of
music you can play in a bar! In addition to occasional world-class entertainment,
Northside Tavern has truly great beer on tap. They also host classical string quartets playing Mozart, early music with the Noyse Merchants, and other favorites.THE place to hang out in Northside. NorthsideTavern.com.
Classical Revolution playing string quartets at Northside Tavern on the first Monday of each month. We have also seen wind trios, brass ensembles, and on one occasion, a mini production of La Boheme with classically trained opera singers! Have a Guiness with your Mozart!

Spring just never ends in Northside!

THE PAINTED FISH, Spring Grove Avenue. Sushi and some Korean dishes.
PARK CHILI PARLOR, 4160 Hamilton. Family owned and operated, this place has been here since 1937, and things haven't changed much. Great prices.
It definitely has the ambience of the 50's diners. You gotta experience it at least once!
BLUE JAY, 4154 Hamilton Avenue, 513-541-0847 (shown below). More good old American food at good old American prices. Our favorite to just sit and chat over eggs and toast.
