See post 2 in this thread for an article and discussion of Cleveland ethnic restaurants and food markets.

//www.city-data.com/forum/cleve...st-thread.html

Not discussed in the above post is Aladdin's Bakery, which operates a small sandwich shop and market at 1301 Carnegie Ave., a short walk east from Progressive Field.

Of course, Cleveland also has a plethora of Asian and Italian restaurants.

Sokolowski's University Inn, easily reached off I-90 from downtown and close to the West Side Market, is the only restaurant in Greater Cleveland designated as a James Beard America's Classic restaurant. It is an iconic Polish-American cafeteria.

The Balaton in Shaker Square is likely the best Hungarian restaurant in Ohio. It's a go-to destination for those in search of good Wienerschnitzel, spaetzle, etc. (try the beet salad).

Default Cleveland.com 2018 A-list

Here's the 2018 Cleveland A-list guide (it's shameful IMO that it omits Mia Bella, far superior to many listed restaurants).

https://www.cleveland.com/expo/life_...in_clevel.html

Here's the list of Cleveland Classics restaurants, part of the A-list.

https://www.cleveland.com/expo/life_..._enduring.html

Here are patron-review generated lists of the best restaurants.

With the exception of Slyman's ranked as number 1 and Steve's Gyros number 2, this is a good list IMO. The Balaton IMO is far superior to the Das Schnitzel Haus for German/Hungarian cuisine.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaura...land_Ohio.html

I've never even heard of Trio, ranked first on the yelp.com list.

Default New restaurants, cafes to try in 2019

From Cleveland.com, a listing of 30 new restaurants and cafes to try in 2019.

https://www.cleveland.com/expo/life-...y-in-2019.html

Checking out Hyde Park Group's Bull & Bird in the old Gamekeeper's Taverne location certainly will be on my bucket list for my next visit to Chagrin Falls, even though little appears left of the old restaurant. As it's a Hyde Park operation, the food is almost guaranteed to be great.

https://www.cleveland.com/entertainm...first_loo.html

Many of the new restaurants listed are in Orange Village, particularly in the new Pinecrest development.

I greatly enjoy City Barbeque on visits to Columbus, and look forward to an opening on the east side. I'm also a great fan of Lindey's in Columbus, so Lindey's Lake House in Beachwood will be checked out at some point.

Republic Food & Drink opening soon will take over the prime Otto Moser location in PlayhouseSquare and almost assuredly will be big winner. Theater goers will get to enjoy the excellent fare of the Driftwood Group (Cibreo, Washington Place) without venturing outside the main theater complex.

Any additions of restaurants opened since Jan. 1, 2018? Any comments about the above list?

Default Banter makes Forbes list of 10 best restaurant meals world-wide

Banter was one of 10 restaurants singled out globally by renown food critic Larry Olmsted in his online Forbes magazine column.

http://www.realfoodfakefood.com/abou...ry-omsted.html

Banter has restaurants both on Detroit Ave. and in Shaker Heights' new Van Aken District. Rabbit pot-pie poutine anyone?

https://www.cleveland.com/entertainm...s-of-2018.html

Olmsted also raves about Banter's "Hungarian-inspired chicken paprikash with spaetzle," another example of the ethnic culinary tradition that now distinguishes the Cleveland food scene. Banter certainly is a threat to divert the diners from Shaker Square's Balaton, where the chicken paprikash at Cleveland's best Hungarian restaurant often is a favorite of customers. Both restaurants are easy visits from downtown using the Blue Line rail rapid.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/larryol.../#7c82c42e3217

Menu — Banter Cleveland

Candidly, I never order anything except the wonderful Wienerschnitzel at Balaton, and always with the very good beet salad. If I lived closer to Shaker Hts. I would try the chicken paprikash and spaetzle (superb at the Balaton) at both restaurants and decide on my favorite, if possible.

Poutine variations are a mainstay of the Banter menu:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poutine

BTW, I noted a broccoli salad on the Banter menu. I'll have to try it, as it's not something that I see too often. A favorite broccoli salad of mine is offered as a side at Huron's Berardi's, renown for its Lake Erie perch and French Fries, originally made famous at Cedar Point. Berardi's also offers great pies, and is a worthwhile detour when traveling to or from Cedar Point or points west.

Berardi's Family Restaurant at HollyEats.com

Olmsted apparently believes the food at Banter is "real," literally. (Read this review at risk of impairing your future enjoyment of several food items and many popular restaurant dishes.)

Default Lindey's Lake House enters East Flats, Lakewood markets

Lindey's is one of the iconic Columbus restaurants located in German Village. A spin-off concept will open restaurants both in the East Flats and in Lakewood. Lindey's owner claims the East Flats restaurant offers great views.

Lindey's Lake House already has a restaurant in Beachwood, according to the following article.

Default Rincon Criollo opens second restaurant

Rincon Criollo will open a second restaurant on Dennison Ave. with an emphasis on take-out. Is the beginning of a Puerto Rican, Alladin's-like restaurant chain?

https://www.clevescene.com/scene-and...nd-restaurant?

BTW, the hub of Alladin's is bakery/food preparation/warehouse located at 12117 Berea Road in Lakewood. There is a small retail store where customers can purchase freshly made pita bread and perhaps other items. The hub is called Jasmine Distributing and offers easy access from I-90.

Default 2019 Fish Fry Guide; Prosperity Social Club Lenten meal

With the Lenten season upon us, so is the annual fish fry season, which in Cleveland also often includes pierogi and live music (polka?).

https://expo.cleveland.com/life-and-...lete-list.html

IMO, look for a fish fry that offers fried lake yellow perch (call ahead?). The few Perkins restaurants often offer fried perch, at least perhaps on Friday, as does typically Sokolowski's. Lake County residents can always head to Brennan's Fish House in Grand River for perch dinners year- round.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaura...unty_Ohio.html

Cleveland.com singles out Tremont's Prosperity Social Club Friday Lenten fish fry:

https://www.cleveland.com/dining/201...-new-beer.html

Prosperity uses haddock for its fish fry, but also offers salmon and shrimp entrees.

Default City Barbeque has opened on Chagrin Blvd. in Beachwood

Columbus mainstay City Barbeque has opened its first Cleveland restaurant at the Pavilion Mall outlot formerly occupied by Ruby Tuesday at 24325 Chagrin Blvd. in Beachwood. I drove by it on Monday evening and it was very busy, not surprising given its reputation in central Ohio; I had already dined, but I'll be back soon.
