Inside Over-the-Rhine’s Losanti, a Boutique Steakhouse in the Former Anchor-OTR Space


Billing itself as a “boutique steakhouse,” Losanti has revamped the space near Washington Park that used to be The Anchor-OTR and given the area a meat-centric menu unlike anything in Cincinnati’s hottest neighborhood. 

This new venture by chef/owner Anthony Sitek — who also owns Crown Republic Gastropub downtown — fills a niche. The neighborhood seems to be responding with open arms during Losanti’s first couple of months.

As you would expect, the menu is heavy on meat choices, from steaks to chops, a burger and a chicken entrée. The three types of steak — filet, New York strip and ribeye — are priced by the ounce, from $3-$3.75 (available sizes actually don’t vary much and usually are at least nine ounces).

There are also pasta offerings and sides, like a little gem salad with avocado, candied walnuts, grapefruit, fennel and champagne vinaigrette.  And the creamed kale, which stands out as an improvement on most steakhouse creamed spinach sides; the sauce was creamy without being heavy and the baby kale was tender and flavorful.
