Prime Cincinnati (formerly known as Prime 47) is one of the hottest dining spots in Cincinnati – and with a new brand and a fresh new menu, it’s definitely become the place to dine.

With a new, expanded menu and fresh new décor, Prime Cincinnati continues to serve up the best in steak, seafood and wine. Executive Chef Shawn Heine ships in fresh fish from Hawaii daily – ordered just the morning before and received within 24 hours. Selections include Japanese sushi-grade tuna, swordfish and opah. The restaurant focuses on their USDA Prime meat choices, but also includes offerings like roasted duck and Osso Buco, in case you or your dining companions aren’t feeling surf or turf.

And Prime Cincinnati isn’t just for dinner: they are open for lunch with a menu that changes seasonally. Enjoy some fish and steak tacos, or the always popular burger, and get them served up with some amazing jumbo tater tots served with cheddar cheese, beer cheese or bacon with sour cream and chives. You’ll love the new atmosphere, with featured art by Cincinnati artist Carlos Navarro, city photography from Steven Thomas and an urban mural by Brittany Shay. Prime Cincinnati is also partnering with local nonprofits to bring in new art.

On tap for next summer: one of the dining rooms will open up to the patio, for that al fresco dining experience as well as an expanded bar. They are very excited to be creating a wine wall to emphasize their new wine list. Want the VIP experience? The private dining room is walled off by one-way glass that gives you privacy while you dine, with the fun of checking out the main dining room. They are also ready to handle your business presentations or social gatherings in their banquet spaces.

Fabulous food, impeccable service and a fresh new look…that’s why you should make your reservation for Prime Cincinnati for special occasions, an exceptional lunch and dinner, private events, or whenever you’re in town.
