CINCINNATI, Ohio -  Orchids at Palm Court is pleased to announce that it has been named the number one restaurant in the city by Cincinnati Magazine.

"Orchids is the unexpected love child of old world and new school and quite possibly a definitive new wave for what defines hot...an extraordinarily inventive menu with a gorgeous sprawl of decidedly exotic ingredients, [Executive Chef Todd] Kelly weaves intricately arranged melodies of prime cuts, colorful produce, fine grains and delicate sauces into a savory whirligig of dishes," Donna Covrett, Cincinnati Magazine Dining Editor, said.

"Do not pass on dessert, as pastry chef Kat Kessler synergizes her own remarkable talent with Kelly's to provide a near symphonic quality to the entire dinner," Covrett said.

Orchids at Palm Court has been honored with numerous awards including being rated "Five Stars-Extraordinary" by The Cincinnati Enquirer (2009) and also the American Automobile Association's (AAA) coveted four-diamond award for excellence. The restaurant received the American Culinary Federation's (ACF) "Award of Excellence" in 2007 and Pastry Chef Kathleen Kessler was awarded the ACF's "Pastry Chef of the Year" honor in 2008!
