Sterling Heights MI to Cleveland OH Road Trip need food suggestions asap!

Second Momocho- awesome

Greenhouse Tavern is IMO best restaurant in CLE right now, but can't go wrong with Lola or Chinato

Tremont and Ohio City have some great places; The Flying Fig and Momocho in Ohio City; Fahrenheit, Lolita, and Parallax in Tremont. All great.

Cleveland Bloody Marys

I am just getting into bloody marys and was wondering if anybody knew any great ones in Cleveland. I have had Melt's, Flannery's, The Blue Point's, The House of Blues', and Touch Supper Club's bloody mary bar. Am I missing any great bloody marys in Cleveland.

Must try bloody mary's in Columbus, Chicago, and Milwaukee also appreciated. Thanks!

Cleveland's West Side Market

I go about once a month, the pizza bagels from Frickaccio's are awesome, and cheap, just make sure you ask for them to be VERY warmed up- delish

Not dead, awesome place. The tongue appetizer is amazing, I get it every time. They have great pasta's, and if you like sushi they do a creative crudo platter. It's Zach Bruell's newest restaurant and its great... one more tip- sign in on foursquare while there and you get a free cocktail

Roadtrip NYC to Seattle

Assuming you are on 90, going straight though downtown Cleveland, you HAVE To stop and try something. In Downtown/Ohio City/Tremont you have to try:

Greenhouse Tavern (open lunch/dinner)
Lola (both)
Chinato (if not both its next to the top two choices)
Fahrenheit (dinner)
Lolita (dinner)
Paralax (both)
The Flying Fig (dinner)
Momocho (dinner)

As a foodie if you are rolling through Cleveland and do not stop you will regret

A bit of New York in the Midwest

Katzingers in Columbus has all of that. In Cleveland we have good corned beef but I can't think of a spot with matzoh ball soup.. but we def. have better corned beef. (SEE: Slymans, Dany's)

Cleve restaurants that allow wine brought in

My guess, pick a spot you know is not a chain and pretty pricey and ask for a manager and slip the guy a 20? I can't think of any CLE BYOB spots, but I know Phoenix Coffee on W.9th just started allowing it so it may be legal- they have a huge BYOB sign up.

Whole chicken [Cleveland]

Depends where you are, if you can the best chickens are from farmers markets, which are everywhere on the weekends. Near the West Side Market your best bet is Dave's, which is across the street and your standard grocery store chain

IL Divo is messing with you or hasn't been to the flats in AWHILE. It has some good party bars, a few dive joints that have a some good bar food when you want straight fried, but zero foodie spots nor nice areas currently

I'll step it up, I am a hardcore Cleveland foodie. Let me know you price points/type of food you like and I can set you up. Off the top of my head best places downtown/Ohio City/Tremont that are can't miss spots are:

Greenhouse Tavern, Chinato, or Lola on E. 4th downtown

Momocho, The Flying Fig, or Bar Cento in Ohio City (Cento is pretty much just a bar)

Fahrenheit, Lolita, or Lincoln Park Bistro in Tremont

(Listed all in order of my opinion best to "worst" in each area, Greenhouse is prob best in CLE right now)

Best Hamburger in Midwest

Lola Burger at Lolita in Tremont rocks, go Michael Symon, second fav. is the Burger at the Flying Fig in Ohio City, with third being tough, really liking Bier Market's burger right now
