I can think of few things less productive for an intelligent mind that worrying about how someone else is dressed.

Depends on the setting. If I go to a high-class establishment to dress up, enjoy some fine food and white-glove service, an opera singer or violinist, and be part of a scene, I don't want some slob coming in and ruining the scene. If owned such a place, I'd keep a high-powered muscle relaxer on site, inject it into the bastard's neck and drag him out into the alley where he belongs.

Looks like this place ( http://thebottlehousebrewingcompany.com/ ) is still set to open in Cleveland Heights, just looking at an early 2012 date.  Pretty cool concept that hopefully does well.  Also will include an area for drinks/dining.

^ Most of the Asiatown restaurants are open, as are King Wah in Rocky River and Ho Wah in Beachwood.

www.howahrestaurant.com

Also, the Jerusalem Grill at Cedar/Green, or the Kosher pizza place on Taylor (Kineret?) are good bets.

I would suspect many places in Asiatown are open, so just in case a pack of neighborhood dogs make off with the Christmas turkey, you'll have some place to go to hear some good Christmas music and have your dinner smile at you......

Top 10 Food Trends

By Josh Ozersky Wednesday, Dec. 07, 201

7. Artisanal Vinegars and Bitters
The one thing you generally expect of new, laboriously made products at restaurants is that they will be good. But even bad can be good — if by "bad" you mean sour or bitter. The nation's avant-garde mixologists, mustachioed and otherwise, have taken up the creation of house-made bitters as part of their advanced drink programs, and their kitchen counterparts are following suit, with vinegars so complex and intriguing that they are sometimes served straight up between courses. Jonathon Sawyer serves half a dozen in tasting dishes at his Greenhouse Tavern in Cleveland. Happily, they are for dipping fries rather drinking, however.

It will be nice to bring some of the momentum of the Cedar-Lee district to the area of Lee north of Cedar.

An update on the build-out of Zach Bruell's Cowell and Hubbard space at Playhouse Square: http://www.cleveland.com/dining/index.ssf/2011/12/zack_bruells_latest_a_gem_in_t.html

Expected to open by the end of January.  The interior space sounds pretty amazing (though kind of makes me wish it was still a fancy jeweler!).

I think an earlier piece reported that it would be French-inspired, but per this bit:

Five pages are packed with an eclectic spectrum of creations, their inspirations drawn from the world's dinner table. One full page is devoted to salads. Another is devoted to appetizers, including Sweet Potato Ravioli With Greens, coconut- and cilantro-laced Thai Chicken & Noodle Soup, escargot, Welsh rarebit, Foie Gras Donuts, and lox and eggs.

Other sections include: fish, poultry, vegan, meat, noodles, pizzas and sides.


Crea compares the menu to Table45.  Anyway, I'm pretty darn excited for this place.  It's a pretty big deal to have a destination restaurant finally end up this far down Euclid Ave.  Hopefully their hours work with PHS audiences.

The one thing that worries me (and I've never been to Table 45, but this is a general observation anyway) is the "5 pages packed ..." comment.  Really I think that there should be no more than 3 pages to a menu.  Cover, appetizers and sides, and Entrees (with a separate dessert menu).  Too many options breeds problems in a kitchen.  The fewer options there are typically the better the food comes out as the kitchen can better focus on a smaller set of items.

A Wolfgang Puck Express (fast casual restaurant with salads, pizza, etc..) already opened this past Summer if that's the one you mean. Wolfgang christened it along with other chefs in town for the UH benefit he's a part of ever two years.

^^I agree with you guys about long menu.  I was disappointed that it strayed from a cleaner vision of French-inspired (if that was indeed the case).  I guess I trust Bruell more than any other local chef to keep quality high despite the breadth of the menu, but still seems all over the place. Welsh rarebit to pizza.  I'm still excited though.  I thought he did a great job breaking up the big space at Chinato, so I'm hopeful he'll be able to do the same with this grand space.

Maybe it's here somewhere but does anyone have the web address for Fat Fish Blue Cleveland's auction? There's a sign on a window of the place but I forgot the full web address.  Says they'll accept bids very low, etc.  Thanks.

Interesting, because L'Albatros's menu is only one page.

Love Bruell restaurants. My menu complaint deals with the unchanging menus - both what's on them and the often tattered, physical menus themselves - that have been in place at L'Albatros and Chinato pretty much since opening.  Nothing is ever different/seasonal and I've had wrinkled/worn menus handed to me any number of times. I comment on it to my wife virtually ever time I'm at one of those places. Not the right impression to give in a day when many restaurants print their own new menu daily, based on ingredients and without a used look.

Trust me it is one of the things I regret, not necessarily that we are on the West Side, but that we are so far on the west side.  Getting DT is fine, but over to Coventry, UC, or LI is something of a pain. 

In addition I just found out that the closest National Bookstore (which when purchasing books as gifts makes sense in case they need to be returned) is in Westlake.  There is nothing over here south of Berea (they only get included because I really like Cornerstone Brewery)!!

Can't think of the name of the place (I saw the sign yesterday but forgot already), but the space next to the bike shop on Chagrin Boulevard in Shaker Heights that used to house Sasamatsu is something brand new.  More recently it was something else (Middle Eastern) but I guess that didn't do so well.

Anyone know if the reason behind the Tomo delayed opening has to do with a battle between Joe Cimperman and the owner over a liquor license? Apparently Cimperman is against granting this after hearing the top floors would include dance clubs. I heard this the other day, but I didn't think one councilman had that much power.

Thats a crazy menu and seems to be a tribute to Clevelands heritage (although I can do without the pig head).

Huh, I was hoping he would re-visit the Avon Lake restaurant concept somewhere else, I wonder if this is basically that, although this seems just a bit different yet.

Whole pig's head has been a great seller at Greenhouse Tavern. Don't knock it til you tried it. I had it this year and every part was delicious, even the eye socket.

Didnt realize Sawyer was doing that, although I shouldnt be surprised, and thats certainly the trend lately.  I know theyve always had the heads on display at the West Side Market, I just usually try to avoid seeing them. 

I know I should be more adventurous with my food, but just not sure I can go there.
