food & wine hearts jonathon sawyer (and so does cleveland)

A very big congratulations to Team Sawyer and The Greenhouse Tavern for receiving quite the spread in the February issue of Food & Wine which focuses on chef’s recipes made easy.

“When Jonathon Sawyer opened the Greenhouse Tavern, he was pleased to see Cleveland’s foodies come out in droves. But that wasn’t enough. “I wanted the whole city to embrace Greenhouse,” says Sawyer, an F&W Best New Chef 2010. So he tweaked the menu to appeal to every kind of eater, from carnivore to vegan. Main courses now range from a curried spaghetti squash–and–chickpea dish (prepared without meat or dairy) to a ravioli filled with a luscious blend of braised lamb shank and house-made fromage blanc. For the extreme carnivore, there’s Fifth Quarter, a daily-changing dish featuring the tasty bits left over after a pig has been butchered and quartered (hence the name). Here, F&W streamlines some of Sawyer’s eclectic recipes for omnivores.” – written by Kate Heddings

Sawyer shares three recipes: Grilled steaks with onion sauce and onion relish, farro with artichokes and herb salad and curried spaghetti-squash and chickpea toasts. In each of the recipes, found here, there’s the chef’s way and the easy way.

    Sawyer is also featured in this month’s Delta in-flight magazine as one of 3 up and coming chefs/restaurants in the country! Saw this on the plane yesterday and was impressed!
