chefs for chardon

Each of us assumes we have tomorrow. Yet, not one of us actually knows for sure. Sadly, no one understands this better than the parents of those students taken too soon in Chardon and Bowling Green. I don’t know how it happened or when, but all I know is that life today is simply not […]

ladies who lunch

I’ve always wondered about ladies who lunch. I have often joked that that’s who I’d like to come back as. Well, the past few months (thanks to maternity leave) that’s just what has become of me. Although something tells me the two aren’t exactly the same. My afternoon partners in crime have been my two […]

flour in moreland hills

Like many of you, I was sad when Baricelli closed. I’ve spent many summer nights on that patio enjoying wine, cheese and the bucatini all’ amatriciana.

Last night was a media preview dinner for both bloggers and traditional media outlets. In the spirit of full disclosure (as always), I am doing some […]

one door closes and another opens

I read this morning in The Plain Dealer (er, cleveland.com) that Baricelli is closing next weekend after 25 years of service, countless celebrations, um-teen engagements and numerous summer evenings on that picture-perfect patio. It’s that patio that I’ll miss the most. I never cared for the decor inside the restaurant so therefore only found myself at Baricelli […]
