3rd tour de bruell; kim opening new restaurant

Since debuting two years ago, Zack Bruell’s Tour de Bruell has grown in popularity – and offerings. It’s back Memorial Day Weekend and of course there’s a new restaurant in the mix: Cowell & Hubbard. Those who finish by Labor Day have a chance at some really great prizes. Here’s more:

  • Bruell’s team is offering a new “Five in Five” promotion:  If a Tour participant earns all stamps between Tuesday, May 29 and Saturday, June 2 – or five restaurants in five days – that individual will receive five entries toward the grand prize drawing
  • Those who choose to complete the Tour by July 7 will be entered into a bonus drawing to win a chauffeured, progressive dinner, with one course at each of the five Zack Bruell restaurants, hosted by Zack
  • Of course, the five participating restaurants are: Parallax, Table 45, L’Albatros, Chinato and the new Cowell & Hubbard

To complete the Tour, guests must visit each of Bruell’s distinctive Cleveland restaurants between Memorial Day and Labor Day; picking up a Tour ticket on their first stop, and getting it stamped when ordering dinner at every location along the way.  In order to complete the Tour – and be eligible for some fabulous culinary prizes – participants will have to get one stamp at each Zack Bruell restaurant and turn in the ticket at the final stop on their Tour.

All fans that complete the Tour de Bruell will receive a commemorative t-shirt, featuring the 2012 Tour theme:  “Zackalicious.”  From those individuals, 10 semi-finalists and their guests will be randomly selected to enjoy a complimentary wine tasting dinner at Table 45, featuring cuisine by Bruell and offerings by premier sparkling wine maker, Chandon.  In addition, one grand prize winner will receive a custom, in-home, four-course dinner for eight, prepared by Bruell himself.


This September, chef Scott Kim will open his second restaurant in Cleveland. The Pan-Asian restaurant, to be named Accent, will be housed in one of the new buildings as part of the much-anticipated Uptown development at Euclid and E 115th, near University Circle.

Accent will reside in the unique egg-shaped enclosed space at the end of the corridor adjacent to the Cleveland Institute of Art.  The signature red back-lit design will create a sexy and inspiring ambiance for the location. The space will also feature a large outdoor dining patio complete with a fireplace to extend the outdoor dining season.

Kim also owns SASA in Shaker Square.
