michael symon: live to cook

April of last year we went to Sonoma and San Francisco for the week. Like every trip I take, I spend a fair amount of time researching where to eat.

time well spent on e 4th

After hearing about Corner Alley for a year or so, we finally made it there tonight for a work outing (bowled two games, neither score worth mentioning).

In the article, the reporter discusses how Cleveland has surprisingly become a hot spot of great eateries and shops – many of which Chicagoans would be lucky to have.

The wave of positive national media coverage for many of Cleveland’s indie restaurants from last year is carrying over into this year, starting with a feature in this month’s Food & Wine: Super Bowl Blowout by Michael Ruhlman.

We are lucky to have Elaine Cicora’s palate in Cleveland. She has been educating and enticing us about the Cleveland food scene through the years. And no surprise here, she is the recipient of a James Beard award for her work in journalism; specifically for the piece she did on Michael Ruhlman. 1. What is […]
