Orchids at Palm Court is the place to go for a luxurious fine dining experience. Located in the historic Hilton Netherland Plaza Hotel, Palm Court is one of the most elegant spaces in Cincinnati. Originally the hotel lobby, Palm Court has a French Art Deco theme with lavish touches. Crystal, French china and genuine silver add to the opulence. Award-winning Executive Chef Todd Kelly and his team prepare the finest cuisine, worthy of being served amidst this grandeur. They seek out the finest ingredients, and if they can't find the quality they want, they personally make the ingredients, such as catching the fish from which they harvest caviar and making their own cheeses. Todd combines these ingredients with great technique and bountiful creativity, leaving no detail untouched, to create the kind of culinary masterpieces that earned him the title of American Culinary Federation Chef of the Year in 2011. The restaurant is one of only 63 in North America with a Five Diamond rating from AAA. Diners will probably want to dress up a bit - business casual at minimum - but a jacket and tie are not required. Be sure to save room for desserts created by Pastry Chef Megan Ketover.
- Best Restaurants: "Most of the menu changes frequently, based on seasonal ingredients, but a few of the menu items are so popular that they've become permanent offerings. Try the Maine Lobster Salad for the Second Course and the award-winning Red Snapper 'En Papillote' as an Entrée."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Orchids at Palm Court provides luxurious fine dining with an executive chef who goes to great lengths to obtain the highest quality ingredients.
