The Ultimate Cincinnati Dining Experience Celebrates*5 Years* of Culinary Excellence at a New Venue for 2022

Now in its fifth year, Savor Cincinnati vaunts never before paired chef duos to collaborate in a dazzling new location to craft one-night-only menus for an intimate and extraordinary “chef’s table” experience. 

CINCINNATI – March 30, 2022 – Cincinnati Magazine’s luxury dining series, Savor Cincinnati, returns with a fresh take on the elaborate culinary experience in celebration of the event’s 5th anniversary year.

Savor Cincinnati is an elaborate, multi-evening, upscale dining series featuring custom menus developed by talented local chef duos paired from different local restaurants. The chefs collaborate to design multi-course menus available four consecutive evenings only. This extremely popular dining series is only held twice a year – once in the spring and once in the fall. 2022 marks five years since it began.

Created to celebrate the robust Queen City culinary scene, Savor Cincinnati is truly a lavish dining experience that elevates and showcases our city’s top talent. This highly coveted and exclusive dining event will be held at a new location this spring – The Cincinnati Club – April 26-29. Guests will be awed by the historic and elegant charm of this stunningly beautiful art deco style venue, which has served the Queen City community since 1923.

These exquisite Savor evenings begin with a mix and mingle cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres served by McHale’s Catering. The chefs will then showcase their culinary collaborations by giving guests a behind-the-scenes look at how they prepare and plate their final dishes. Each course is also matched with a unique and high-end wine pairing, available for purchase at the end of each evening. A different local non-profit is also featured each night and will receive a portion of that evening’s wine sale proceeds.
