Cinci Chili in NYC? Tue, 02/14/06 5:17 PM (permalink)
I've travelled all over the country, but have never made it to Cincinnati. I am extremely curious about Cinci chili. I have recently moved to NYC. Not the chili capital, I know. Is there any Cinci-style chili in NYC that someone knows about?

    Many of the larger chains locally sell their chili in a canned and/or frozen format, and are available at many grocery stores or by mail order.

    Examples:

    Dixie Chili is Wallyum's favorite, near as I can tell
    order online: https://dixiechili.com/order.php

    Skyline is overall the biggest and most popular chain in Cincinnati
    order online: http://www.cincinnatifavorites.com/skylinechili.php
    grocery locator: http://www.skylinechili.com/skyline_grocery.php

    Gold Star Chili is the second biggest chili parlor chain in town
    order online: http://www.goldstarchili.com/orderform/
    grocery locator: http://www.goldstarchili.com/athome/retailers.asp

      I think they used to serve it at the Manhattan Chili Company restaurant.

        I too have traveled all over the country eating chili and I've been a NY regional chili judge. I sort of grew up (college days) on Cinnci Chili though I'm not from Cinnci. The stuff is unique and incrediable and if there were a Cinnci. Chili Parlor in NYC I'd be there as often as I could. But, there are none! I've thought about opening one here. The stuff is like no other chili I've had -- even in the way it's server: one way, two way, ... five way (or the famed six way when you're really hung over and strung out). I have the stuff imported from Kroger.com (cheaper than skyline.com) in a can but it isn't quite the same -- close but no cigar. Also in Cinni. there are a lot of private chili parlors that have secrect recipes handed down from who knows where. One place I ate on Mt. Adams in Cinnci was run by two brothers each having a different part of the recipe and each taking their turn behind locked doors, without the other, to mix up the concoction -- the stuff was great. I have even been known to stop by a Cinni chili parlor on the way to "La Maisonette" (Cinncinati's premiere 4 star French restaurant) for dinner for a plate of this stuff. Find a cheap flight and by all means go to Cinncinati and indulge -- I have to on occasion.

        Skyline Chili can also be found in cities around Cinninati like Columbus, Louisville, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Lexington, etc.

          It was 5 star, actually, and is no longer in business - closed, all property auctioned off, staff scattered to the 4 winds. The son took over the parent's (The Comisar's) business, got greedy, and lost it all.
