by The Cincinnati Team

The American Automobile Association has announced that six Cincinnati restaurants have received their Four Diamond rating.  Restaurants include: Boca, Celestial Steakhouse, Daveed’s, Nicola’s Ristorante, Orchids at Palm Court and the Palace.  Nicola’s is new to the list and the Palace has received the rating for 21 consecutive years.

Hotels recognized include the Cincinnati Marriott at Rivercenter in Covington, the Cincinnatian Hotel the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza and the Westin Cincinnati.

I’m thrilled to see Nicola’s added to the list.  It has long been my husband’s and my favorite restaurant…great place to go after the Playhouse in the Park. 

Wouldn’t it be fun to be one of their evaluators…what a job to have!
