In response to yesterday’s post about the LA foodie, Adam over at Positively Cleveland sent me a few news stories from national food editors at various dailies. The Convention (wisely) has been putting forth much effort towards the local food scene and brought in 10 national food and wine editors to experience Cleveland first-hand. The group hit all the right spots, including The West Side Market, various wineries, Crop, Dante, Sokolowski’s, Baricelli and the Culinary Vegetable Institute among others. Surprisingly not on the list was a stop at Lola or Lolita - not sure why. I personally may have tweaked the overall tour a bit, but nonetheless, it was a really smart idea that appears to be very well received and will no doubt be good for future tourism. I was telling Adam that I receive on average five e-mails a week from people visiting our city for one reason or another looking for restaurant/hotel/activity suggestions and I love reading their e-mails once they return home. For the most part, they are all pleasantly surprised by what Cleveland has to offer – especially when it comes to dining out. Of course, we already knew that.
Here are the stories thus far:
