This past Saturday, we headed to Momocho with two of my sisters and their husbands for dinner. I was craving Mexican all week and no one was about to tell the pregnant women she couldn’t pick the restaurant. We took my sister and brother-in-law there last spring, but this was the first outing for my […]

new deals and meals at momocho

Chef/owner Eric Williams over at Momocho is well aware of the current economic situation, like all of us, and the struggles and daily changes many Clevelanders are making in response. Recognizing that people are more price conscious now more than ever, Williams is launching a Sunday Supper Special beginning October 19. For $30 per couple, […]

updates from around the dinner table

Here’s a quick look at the happenings at some of our local favorites: Crop BistroCrop recently welcomed the addition of Elaine Cicora as the director of communications/official storyteller. This is great news for Crop, but sad for the rest of us that looked forward to her well-written and spot-on food reviews each week. Thursday-only happy […]

A new restaurant and wine bar is opening this Monday in Rocky River that promises to bring something truly unique to Cleveland. Tartine Bistro & Wine Bar is described as a cross between Bar Cento and Market Avenue Wine Bar, only more quaint than Cento and with a more extensive food menu than the wine […]


In honor of Cinco de Mayo (and because I’ve been craving Mexican), we headed to Momocho, which in my opinion, is hands-down the best place in town for Mexican. And a very fun environment in general. We weren’t the only ones who wanted to celebrate the day with guacamole and margaritas. The restaurant had a […]

Tis the season to head back outside to eat, and restaurant owners are wasting no time in getting their patios in tip-top shape. Here are a few of the ones that I’ve heard are already open. I’m sure there are others, so please share. Momocho. This place boasts a very cute and intimate patio. It’s […]

Cory Barrett, Ohio native and Lola/Lolita head pastry chef, has been in the food business for 10 years now and thankfully, much of that time has been spent here.

momocho in this month’s bon appetit

Back in December, Chef Eric Williams told us to look for a mention of his place, Momocho, in the March issue of Bon Appetit. By way of Joe Crea, here’s what the popular national consumer magazine, with an impressive circulation of over 1.3 million, had to say: “The music is loud, and the walls are […]
