Local Hidden Gem as OMEGA’s Latest MVP
From cuisine to atmosphere, finding a suitable restaurant for date night can be exhausting. We think we have found the perfect solution for you, though it may not be where you think.
Across the Ohio River from Cincinnati lies the energetic, bustling city of Covington, home of Mainstrasse Village, a beautifully unique area filled with shops, bars, bridal stores and tattoo parlors. It’s in this area that you will find Bouquet Restaurant, nestled away for your every date night need.
“It’s a fine-dining atmosphere, tucked away in an intimate, romantic setting,” Bouquet’s chef and owner, Stephen Williams said. “We’ve often been called the ‘hidden gem,’ and though word has spread, I think people feel like they are discovering something new when they dine with us.”
Chef Williams, a Kentucky native, has spent years in the Cincinnati area, earning his degree from This Midwest Culinary Institute and working with chef with all different types of culinary backgrounds. When he decided to open his own restaurant in 2007, Williams was able to bring all types of facets into his ever changing menu.
And what makes Bouquet even more unique? They are extremely dedicated to having farm-to-table food. “We have these long-standing partnerships with local farmers and producers,” Chef Williams said, “so we’re able to continue to build seasonal menus based on what’s available here locally.” Each time you dine with Bouquet, you can bet your meal will be prepared with the freshest, most hi-quality ingredients around town.
Whether you’re in search of a French inspired meal, something with an Asian influence, or just some good old Southern American food, you can be sure Chef Williams has a dish for that. With a menu that changes almost weekly, and a wine list to match, you’ll find yourself hard-pressed to outdo this spot.
It’s not just us who think so, either! With a running list of recognitions, reviews, and awards, Bouquet Restaurant was named by Business Insider’s “The Best Restaurant in Every State” as the best restaurant in Kentucky. Even more, they have spent the past six years running in Cincinnati Magazine’s “Best Restaurants in Cincinnati”, this year being the only Kentucky establishment included!
Come celebrate a special event, enjoy a romantic date night, or simply have a fun evening with your friends with dinner and drinks at Bouquet. They also provide private parties on their second floor, which includes party planning, chef preparation, music of your choice, votive candle treatments, and a beautiful dining room.
