cleveland rocks and so does its food (tell me why and win $50 to crop)

Since landing in Cleveland in 2005, chef Steve Schimoler has made quite the impression. After his term ended at Nestle in Solon, he could have packed up his knives and headed anywhere given his impressive background and talent. But no, he decided to stay in Cleveland and open Crop Bistro in the summer of 2007. […]

$1 equals 40 days of water for a child (cleveland chefs join together for unicef’s project tap)

From March 22 – 28, five local restaurants are participating in Unicef’s Tap Project, which brings clean water to millions of children around the world – something each of us takes for granted every single day. Just $1 provides drinking water for one child for 40 days – $1, something most of spend without a […]

a foodie from la visits cleveland

More and more over the past couple of years, we keep reading about food editors in other cities, from dailies to consumer pubs, thoughts on the Cleveland dining scene.

Cleveland chefs were in the national spotlight last night, and let’s just say they did a much better job than the other Clevelanders who were in the spotlight on Monday night (although I do believe the team is in for a great season). To celebrate the new season of Dinner: Impossible, Bar Cento held a […]

dinner at bar cento

I didn’t think it was possible, but there are actually a few people in town who have yet to experience Bar Cento – and our neighbors are on that short list. So last Friday when we made plans for dinner, we immediately suggested this place after learning they weren’t familiar with it. From the second […]

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 […]
