New in Cincinnati?

I am a Cincinnati native who has been living overseas, and I'm planning my annual visit to my parents this summer. While there are old favorites I love revisiting, I am also interested in knowing if there are new places that have opened in the past year and a half that are worth trying. The types of food I miss the most where I am are Indian, BBQ/Southern style food, Mexican, and all styles of fusion food.

Any new places worth visiting would be greatly appreciated.

  1. 1st off, welcome back home.
    BBQ: Jim Dandy's in Sharonville is absolutely the best. BBQ Review in Madisonville is a close 2nd (but their sauce isn't all that gerat)
    3rd: Mexican: Taqueria Mercado in Fairfield or downtown or Dinastia Latina in Sharonville.
    4th: My current fave, Ali Baba on Red Bank Rd. Kind of chaotic to order but very well worth the wait.

    1. Eli's BBQ is probably the best new Cue in town. Since i've been here, i've found that Cincy isn't that big into BBQ or Mexican.
