metromix review: tartine bistro & wine bar

First came Cleveland Magazine then West Shore Magazine and now I can add Metromix to the list. I’ve been given another opportunity to write about food and throw my two cents into the ring. All of this writing and getting to know new people has been a lot of fun and something I truly enjoy. My first review for Metromix appeared yesterday for Tartine in Rocky River. Look for more reviews soon, including one I am working on now that will make my dog, Stella, very happy.
Metromix is fairly new to Cleveland but has been around the Chicago scene for about 10 years. I first learned about it from my friends in Chicago and have come to rely on it whenever I visit my second favorite city. With the PD food scene sinking fast, it’s nice to have another outlet (along with Scene and a handful of other foodie bloggers) to keep us in the know.

    I have come to rely on a combination of MetroMix and Urban Spoon (love the iPhone version…brilliant) for everything from bars to great new places.

    I am glad to see it’s in Cleveland now. And that it has some great writers! Good show.

    The Metromix site is really fantastic. I haven’t paid much attention aside from a few visits when we were heading somewhere and I needed quick info. But the Cleveland site is really informative. Thanks for sharing.

    Since you’re expecting, I thought I’d share a catalog I’ve been putting together (blog form). It’s called Dining with Children and focuses on Cleveland/Northeast Ohio restaurants. I decided it was important to keep patronizing all the great eateries NEO has to offer even though baby was in tow, so I kept a list of all the places some might not think you could take baby/toddler/kids. It includes a few other things and other locales that we might hit as well while traveling. If you have any suggestions now or once baby comes let me know! So far the posts aren’t as frequent as I’d like, but I’m getting there.
