friday night in the cle

The weekend in winding down and it was a good one. If the past two weekends are any indication of what kind of summer this is going to be, let’s just say we’re off to a very good start.

Friday night we did two of my favorite things: shopped and ate at Momocho. Between Room Service and DuoHome (where I always find the neatest things), and all the ridiculously talented people showcasing their goods at Made in the 216, I was a very happy Clevelander. Danielle DeBoe outdid herself once again. I think this was the best event yetand I walked away with some fun accessories, a shirt and a scarf. Cleveland is really lucky to have her – her dedication and her continued committment to the city. I remember Danielle’s very first 216 event and it’s fun to see how much it has grown and all the new designers, artists, etc. that’s she’s introduced us all to. Congratulations, Danielle!

momochoAfter dinner, we went with friends to Momocho– the best place for Mexican in Cleveland hands-down. I can’t say it enough, I just love this place. The food, staff and decor – it always puts a smile on my face, and Friday was no different (especially since we sat outside).

I’ve tried numerous items, but it’s the smoked trout and crab chilaquiles that I order the most. I’m crazy about this dish for so many reasons – the layers of flavor, size (I never finish so I always have the perfect breakfast waiting for me when I get up) and because it’s just that good. If you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out.

By the way, I highly recommend you order the cucumber margarita at Momocho, too. You can thank me later (or not if you enjoy too many!).

    I’m with you Michelle, if I want something like Mexican I’m going to Momocho. Eric was at the Chef Jam last night with a wild boar taco that was fantastic. Also went to Made in the 216 on Saturday after parade the Circle. Didn’t say hello to Danielle as she was very busy keeping things happening. Split a hotdog with Julie at the Happy Dog.

    I think I shall give Momocho a try! seems like it’s menu is more “modern” if you will…. would not hurt to have 2 “hands down” faves for Mexican! :) I love your blog!

    Ivy Lane – Thanks for the kind words! You can’t really compare the two. Luchita’s is more modern so I think you can safely have two faves! I actually love the tortilla soup at Luchita’s. When they were on Shaker, I use to go almost weekly just for the soup. The enchiladas suizas are good, too.
