Chains at Taste
For the record:
During all that discussion about Best of Taste, I never stopped to actually count up how many chains are in Taste of Cincinnati. I have the list in front of me. The only national chains are: Buca di Beppo, Buffalo Wings and Rings, Buffalo Southwest Express, Melting Pot and Carrabba's. That's 5 out of 41. There are also some Ohio chains: Max and Erma's, City Barbecue and The Rusty Bucket, and some Cincinnati-only or Cincinnati-based chains: Graeter's, Izzy's, LaRosa's, Montgomery Inn and Mythos.
