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). As far as bowling alleys go, this one is up there – granted my knowledge of alleys now includes two, Freeway Lanes in Solon and now this one. […]

preview dinner at the greenhouse tavern

They say good things come to those who wait. Well Cleveland, we’ve waited and in return, we’re rewarded with not good, but great things. On Sunday night, Jamie and I were fortunate enough to be included among the eager and downright giddy that had the pleasure to attend The Greenhouse Tavern’s family and friends preview. […]

head to greenhouse tavern tomorrow

St. Patty’s Day is, of course, tomorrow. It’s going to be a warm and sunny 60 degrees outside and the streets will no doubt be packed with families, drunks and plenty of people playing hookey. It’s been a good five years since I’ve retired from participating in the downtown March madness, but if I was […]

brooklyn beer dinner with chef jonathon sawyer

Last Thursday, chef Sawyer invited Jamie and myself to be his guests at Viking in Legacy for a special Brooklyn Brewery beer tasting featuring brewmaster Garrett Oliver (who also happens to be a best-selling author and sommelier). Each beer, six total, was paired with a dish created by chef Sawyer and his team. The night […]

an anniversary treat for everyone

On October 9, Bar Cento will celebrate its one year anniversary. To toast the occasion, chef Jonathon Sawyer is giving away one free pizza, your choice, with the purchase of a bottle of wine (bottle prices start at $15 on up). Not a bad deal. If you’ve yet to check out Bar Cento, this is […]

celebrating the premier of dinner: impossible

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 […]

sneak peak at greenhouse tavern

Of all the places awaiting to open this year, in the food world and beyond, it’s this place that I’m most giddy about: The Greenhouse Tavern. Chef Sawyer gave a sneak peak inside his highly anticipated green restaurant to FOX8 last night. Since I never watch FOX (strictly a WKYC girl), I was happy to […]

A lot of exciting happenings for our local chefs over the past couple weeks. Here’s a recap: Terra MadreThis year’s class has been selected to attend the food extravaganza in Torino, Italy. I remember Dominic Cerino talking about his experience a few years ago and sharing his memories. It sounds like an amazing food journey. […]
