Dine with Design 2021


Join us on September 9, 2021 to help us celebrate and honor the Ohio Restaurant Association (ORA) with the 2021 Apple Award. The ORA, on behalf of our community’s restaurants, has earned this recognition through the industry’s resiliency this past year, and their commitment to serving their customers and protecting their staff through these challenges. If the past year and a half has taught us anything, it’s that the vibrancy and the vitality that our restaurants bring to our community is paramount. The importance of the interactions we have in restaurants has never been highlighted more than it is today. As restrictions are lifted and we can safely come together, let’s raise a toast to these amazing institutions that have brought so much to us and our community.

Dine with Design will honor the ORA on behalf of Cincinnati’s local restaurants, which showcase the variety of their built environments as a backdrop to their amazing cuisines. By supporting some of these eateries, we will also raise funds to support Design LAB, a K-12 architecture and design education program that reaches about 2,000 students in the Greater Cincinnati Area each year as well as other AFC programs. Even with Covid-19 limitations this year, we were still able to serve around 550 students.
