Yes, I am a Cinner!

Cinner's Chili Parlour & Cocktail Lounge opened last weekend! This long awaited neighborhood spot specializes in Cincinnati Style Chili. Cincinnati chili is saucier than typical Texas chili and is served over spaghetti or coney-style. Beans are cooked separately from the sauce and are used as an addition to the plate. Cinci-style is for the chili sophisticate; interesting spices like cinnamon, allspice, cocoa and Worcestershire create a one-in-a-kind taste.

Cinner's offers 3, 4, and 5-way Chili, plus a variety of other cheesy, meaty concoctions. Meatless options are graciously included on the menu, and cocktails are named for some of Cincinnati's main attractions. The "Over the Rhine," made with rum, gin, and watermelon vodka, sounds like a must try.
