bon appetit recognizes the greenhouse tavern as one of america’s best

By now you’ve probably read plenty of local reviews on The Greenhouse Tavern from media and bloggers alike. And I’m going to assume you’ve talked to a few people who told you that the wings were ridiculously good, the burger best in town and the pasta unreal. And that’s all true (okay, maybe not the burger – for me that goes to Lolita, but this one is a very close #2) and hopefully was enough to convince you to see for yourself. But just in case it hasn’t, here’s perhaps the most impressive recommendation and one all Clevelanders should be excited about because Cleveland is once again receiving national recognition for our outstanding culinary talent:

Bon Appetit named The Greenhouse Tavern one of the 10 Best New restaurants in America.

The issue isn’t on stands yet, but you can read a sneak peak on GHT’s distinction as well as the other nine here. Also making the list is San Francisco’s Bar Jules, which I ate at this past spring and couldn’t agree with its recognition more.

A big congratulations to chef Jonathon Sawyer, Amelia and the entire GHT team. We are so happy for you and can’t think of a more deserving group.

UPDATE: Here’s the story.

    I agree with Lolita’s burger being #1… For me, the best thing at GHT is the cocktail menu… mmmm… Ginger Flip! And the tartar is pretty bad assed too
