    What a coincidence--was JUST about to post the same question since I think we may take a little impromptu road trip and use up some Marriott points. Would love some suggestions on good eats! Either that or I'm afraid the SO will have us going to Des Moines (NO, I'm not kidding). TIA.

    I still think Momocho and Lolita are worth visiting, but for LOTS more info on Cleveland, my friend and serious food blogger Nancy Heller, who lives in Cleveland, has a great blog on eating out in and around Cleveland. The blog includes food from her travels, as well, but mostly focuses on Cleveland -- with lots of details and photos. And since she's the one who got me to both Momocho and Lolita, as well as to The Purple Pig when she came to Chicago, I would feel pretty confident about anything she recommends.

    I had less time than I wanted to enjoy Cleveland in April, and exited with no pictures of that stage. I do have some possibly entertaining intel on Central Ohio road diners to come. My group waited in line for a Steve's Gyros at the West Side Market, which at $7 fed about four people (I believe it is 2 lb of meat, a house mix, not particularly lamb-y). The tzatziki was delicious but the sandwich overall did not shake my Chicago favorites. The market itself is everything you'd want it to be (spend much more time than I did, and/or bring a cooler).

    The Great Lakes Brewing Company pleasantly surprised me on food. The pillowy soft pretzels with assorted mustards were addicting and re-ordered. My spicy pizza was actually excellent, with the (Cleveland-ubiquitous) banana peppers and a blistery crust. The brews were of course grand.

    Definitely Velvet Tango Room and maybe Lolita, they're close so it could be a one-two punch.

    Yes to Velvet Tango Room. It's been around since the mid-90's I believe. Their Manhattan is my favorite anywhere. But prices are steep - higher than most places I've been to in Chicago. I believe last time I was there they were $16?

    Also in that general area:

    Mitchell's Ice Cream
    The West Side Market (a must for shopping)
    Phnom Pen for Cambodian and Vietnamese

    I also enjoyed the food at Market Garden Brewery and Great Lakes Brewery, also in that same area.

    Bump!

    Anyone been to Cleveland lately? My first visit will be next week for work. Really only have Tuesday afternoon and evening to explore. Staying downtown and will rely on rideshares, public transit, and my legs, I guess. ;)

    I have been to Cleveland, OH. numerous times since 1992. I have utilized all four methods of travel to there (automobile, airplane, bus, train).
    Back in October 2016, for an unimaginable reason, lots of people in Chicago wanted to travel to Cleveland. :?: :wink:
    So I composed a World-Wide Web page giving key data. :D
    I recommend browsing it.
