Global Table: The new Cincy restaurant Huit gives barbecue an international flair and royal flavor

CINCINNATI - Our "Global Table" column explores the international side of Greater Cincinnati dining. Follow WCPO contributor, Grace Yek, as she talks to the chefs and owners of these dining spots about their food, culture and journey.

The concise menu at Huit is a window to the world of flavor within. This cozy 40-seat restaurant on Court Street personifies the food and cultural experiences of its globe-trotting owners: Tobias Harris, Jennifer Eng and Trang Vo.

Signature dishes

The simple menu makes the ordering easy, letting you get on to the real business of eating. There are four signature dishes. They all embody an effortless international flair, with Asian roots.

The Eight Spice Ribs are deeply flavored with the house-made tamarind vinegar sauce, and encrusted with the signature eight spice blend. The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender, and nicely contrasts with the toasty eight-spice crust.

Sensing a numeric theme? Huit (pronounced whit) is French for "eight." The restaurant's signature spice blend is a blend of eight spices.
