Nada Restaurant Review: Cincinnati always wanted its own upscale, Rick Bayless-style taco joint, and Nada is about as good as it gets on that front. It's touted for its margaritas and small plates, but there are also oyster shooters for an appetizer; pork belly tacos and carnitas (braised pork) tacos ala diabla (spicy); and lamb mole in an iron pot. Chips and salsa cost extra, and you can be prepared for those small plates to be a little pricey, too. Margarita varieties range from prickly pear to pink grapefruit to the "nadarita" with tequila, triple sec, lime juice and honey, the house specialty. Among desserts is a chocolate torte with bananas Foster gelato. The food is good, but this place is really more about atmosphere: loud, colorful and a little full of itself.
