This might be a first. A recent comment by rockandroller regarding Elaine Cicora’s nod to Sokolowski’s in her recent Q & A, has sparked Elaine to revisit everyone’s favorite cafeteria (well, almost everyone) and post about it today in C-Notes, Cleveland Scene’s blog.
While I personally haven’t been to Sokolowski’s University Inn in years, I still remember how tasty and perfect the pierogies were and appreciating the legacy of this place. It is a place we are lucky to have and a history we should cherish.
Whether you’re a fan or not, I think Elaine summed it up beautifully:
“After all, it’s spots like this that give Cleveland its distinctive flavor, making us different from New York, or Wheeling, or Albuquerque. And whether it’s a Southern barbecue shack, a Navajo taco joint, or a Florida fish camp, preserving a region’s local culinary heritage is important stuff. It’s one of the reasons that foodies support local restaurants over national chains. And it’s the real reason Sokolowski’s deserves its seat at the gourmet’s table.”
