Cincinnati’s Oldest Deli Has The Best Chicken Salad You’ll Ever Try

It’s pretty remarkable to think that there are certain eateries throughout Cincinnati that have been around for nearly 100 years. In an age when restaurants rotate through strip malls and chains dominate street corners, it’s reassuring to know that a family-owned, local gem can exist for decades. With locations both downtown and within Findlay Market, Silverglades is the oldest family-owned and operated deli in Cincinnati. And aside from their longevity and charm, they also happen to make the absolute best chicken salad you’ll ever try — and that’s just the beginning.
