More to Savor with Our Neighbors

The Lindner Family Café has partnered with a restaurant in downtown Cincinnati to provide a unique and delicious dining experience that’s just next door to the Taft Museum of Art. The Lytle Park Hotel's restaurant, Subito, is offering 10% off on food and non-alcoholic beverages when you mention your visit to the Taft Museum of Art when making your reservation.

Indulge in Northern Italian Cuisine with an air of European sophistication and influence at Subito. Savor homemade pastas, scratch-made sauces and hand-selected, perfectly seared steaks, finished in our infrared broiler. Along with the freshest seafood, flown in daily from the ports, Subito offers brick oven pizzas, a raw bar and traditional antipasti. Enjoy fine Italian and American wines from the cellar or a libation made by one of the restaurant's talented mixologists. Order up premium hand-crafted cocktails and bourbons, as well as the best of the region's beverages, like negronis, bellinis and our own Lytle Park limoncello. Pair one of these amazing beverages with Chef McIntosh's selection of shareable plates.

Open for lunch 11 a.m.–2 p.m. daily. View the menu.
