L’Albatros Brasserie – A Cleveland Must

L’Albatros Brasserie – A Cleveland Must

Cleveland’s boom in excellent restaurants is wonderful… obviously. But with the drastic increase in dining options, comes the inevitable turnover of establishments. Whether a restaurant opened at the wrong time, or is in the wrong place, it just happens.

However, restaurateur Zack Bruell has managed to keep a handful of these places going for over ten years – including one of my favorite places in Cleveland yet, L’Albatros.… Read More Read More

Wednesdays at The Canton Club: Rooftop Patio Party!

If you want to take your ho-hum happy hour routine to new heights, boy do I have a spot for you. The Canton Club, a historic club-turned-events center-and-restaurant at the top of the Chase Tower in downtown Canton, is hosting something new this summer: ‘Rooftop Patio Parties’ every Wednesday from 4:30-7:30pm through August 13.

Dining Around Northeast Ohio – Certified Angus Beef-Style

Dining Around Northeast Ohio – Certified Angus Beef-Style

As Lisa wrote in Part I of our series on Certified Angus Beef, our weekend adventure earlier this month was equal parts beef education, edibles, and FUN. Lisa talked about the educational aspect at the Certified Angus Beef Education and Culinary Center, which was fascinating by the way, and we hope to experience more from the CAB folks in the future.… Read More

Taste of Canton – May 21 & 22, 2014

Taste of Canton – May 21 & 22, 2014

Things only get better with age, right? Well, The Taste of Canton is no exception. In its 6th year, Taste has more vendors, locally-loved entertainment and a fantastic atmosphere than ever before. Nothing else makes me as immeasurably happy as food and drink in the sunshine, and I'm sure the same goes for you. If that's true, this is the kickoff to our joyous, beloved season of festivals. To make this kickoff even sweeter, I have $15 to give someone for the Taste of Canton... more on that in a bit. Read More... Read More

Cocktail Therapy: Moscow Mule Recipes

Cocktail Therapy: Moscow Mule Recipes

I first became acquainted with the Moscow Mule - that classic ginger-lime cocktail served in a copper cup - a few years ago, a short time after Anthony Bourdain {love you, Tony!} visited Cleveland to film his TV show No Reservations. One of his stops on an "off night" in Cleveland (i.e., no video shooting that night) was the Velvet Tango Room, a swanky speakeasy in Tremont. He loved it, immediately regretting that the cameras weren't rolling as he soaked in the throw-back vibe and hand-crafted cocktails. And while I wish the rest of the story was that I also just happened to be there that night, and that he walked in and insisted on buying everyone a round of Moscow Mules, and that we became immediate, inseparable BFFs....it didn't quite work out that way. At all. Read More... Read More

Eat Local: The Rail in Canton, Ohio

Eat Local: The Rail in Canton, Ohio

Canton has its share of dining gems, but they’re often tucked away in our city’s nooks and crannies – off the beaten path or scattered on street corners in the downtown district.

So when word spread that local restaurateur Mike Mariola was opening his third location of the RAIL at Belden Village Mall – ground zero for chain restaurants and big-name retailers – I CHEERED at the news…and an entire contingent of local foodies cheered along with me.… Read More

Beer Growlers and Your Local Grocer

Beer Growlers and Your Local Grocer

Some beers taste great bottled, others are pretty damn decent in the can, but seemingly, nothing is comparable to finding your favorite brewery handle at your regular spot. Luckily, our local grocery stores have come to the rescue; to please our insatiable thirst for craft beers, there have been a few that stepped up to the plate and adapted their stores to accommodate our bring-home wants through taps and growlers.

First Amendment Public House: Good Food & Free Speech in Wooster, Ohio

First Amendment Public House: Good Food & Free Speech in Wooster, Ohio

When our family wants to venture outside of everyday territory for an outing, we love to make a short jaunt to Wooster, Ohio. It's a surprisingly hip town about 30 minutes west of Canton, surrounded by Ohio's rolling farmland on all sides (including the 'gateway' to Amish Country to the south) and - I'll be honest - not much else.
