Lola in Cleveland - What to Order?

Yes! Definitely try the beef cheek ravioli. The steak with blue cheese is incredible, too.

Anthony Bordain in Cleveland

I just discovered that there's more than one Hot Sauce Williams location in Cleveland. Which would you recommend?

Tabaq or Bistro Bis?

I'll be traveling from out of town ... wondering whether Tabaq or Bistro Bis would be a better experience for New Year's Eve? I would appreciate any advice.

Thank you.

What restaurant in Cleveland OH shouldn't be missed for a great dinner?

Lola and Lolita are great.

Don't get suckered into thinking Red the Steakhouse or Moxie are among the best in Cleveland. The food is what you might expect (quality ingredients, nice preparation), but the overall experience is disappointing and so unnecessarily PRETENTIOUS. This restaurant (it's really just one restaurant with separate rooms) seems stuck in the early nineties. I left feeling very turned off and regreting that I'd spent so much money in such an unenjoyable dining experience in the suburbs.

Momocho - Cleveland

I had a great experience at Momocho. I would recommend sitting downstairs where the atmostphere is better (weird carpeting and low ceilings upstairs). Guac was delicious!

Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles in DC

Is Les Halles in DC worth a stop? Or does it suffer from its status as a chain? I love bistros and would expect quality from Bourdain ...

Fun, Casual Spot for Dinner (with a group of four or more)?

In DC, which restaurant is best for a casual dinner with a group of friends? (A group of mostly omnivores and at least one vegetarian.)

Help! Brunch in Cleveland

Lucky's is the best brunch spot in Cleveland! I ate there this morning. Local ingredients and careful preparation. Brunch dishes are less than $10, and the atmosphere is casual.

Tommy's on Coventry also does a good brunch (by Cleveland standards).

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage–Brown Butter Sauce

Great recipe! I would recommend making double the brown butter sauce in order to keep the ravioli from sticking together.
