Dining A True Cincinnati Restaurant

Forget the seven hills: Khora wants to take you on a tour of the Ohio River Valley. Led by Edward Lee and Kevin Ashworth, our very own Downtown Cincinnati restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients to put a modern Midwest spin on pasta and other small plates.

Opening Fall 2020


We are extremely excited to take care of you with delicious food and immensely warm hospitality. Join us this fall for daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


Kevin Ashworth

Kevin Ashworth cut his teeth alongside Edward Lee; the East Side Cincy native has worked with him around the world, from the Korean Peninsula to Southern Europe. Now, the pair have teamed up again. After years as Executive Chef of Lee’s famed restaurant 610 Magnolia, Ashworth followed his mentor back home, accepting the same post at Khora.

Edward Lee

Maybe you’ve seen him host the PBS Emmy-winning series, “Mind of Chef,” or picked up a copy of his James Beard award-winning book, “Buttermilk Graffiti.” You might even know him from his philanthropic work with the LEE (Let’s Empower Employment) Initiative. Edward Lee is one of America’s most noteworthy chefs, and after making his mark in Louisville, KY, Washington, DC, and beyond, he’s bringing his singular take on Midwestern cuisine to The Kinley Cincinnati.
