RESTAURATEURS ARE DREAMING UP THOROUGHLY CREATIVE DISHES THAT PUT THE “A” IN AUTHENTIC.

> The Real Deal Go authentic. Ohio City-based

legit reason this Hingetown darling was a 2019 James Beard Award semifinalist for Best New Restaurant: Larder’s modern approach to old-school Eastern European deli comfort food is wildly inventive. Savor koji-cured pastrami piled high on freshbaked bread, marvel at the vinegar made from Manischewitz wine, or stock up on seasonal pickles in the grab-and-go section. grape Kool-Aid and settle in for some true soul food at Zanzibar Soul Fusion, where the menu features Southern staples like fried green tomatoes and honey-glazed fried chicken. Along with comfort food favorites, expect the unexpected at the family-owned Downtown and Shaker Square stops with catfish fingers, soul rolls and mini tiger shrimp po’ boy sliders.

2019–20 Dining Guide

appetites have met their match in the meaty dishes served up by Banter Beer & Wine. Not only does the Detroit-Shoreway trendsetter offer a well-curated selection of libations, but it also dishes out several different varieties of poutine—including a so-Cleveland-it-hurts chicken paprikash variety—and juicy, plump housemade sausages. Hansa Brewery offers a taste of Germany with sausage platters, schnitzel and awardwinning beers like the Black Flag Schwarzbier. Over in Tremont, Polish food haven Sokolowski’s University Inn has been serving up kielbasa, pierogies, stuffed cabbage and other filling fare for nearly 100 years— attracting notables from Bill Clinton to Kevin Bacon. (Call it six degrees of satisfaction.)

MASTERS OF TASTE


OLD WORLD ROOTS, CLEVELAND-BREWED

SOUR BATCH KIDS

DRINK IN CLEVELAND’S CENTRAL EUROPEAN HERITAGE WITH THIS SIX-PACK OF LOCAL CRAFT BEERS. By Leslie Basalla-McCafferty

Polka City Pilsner (Goldhorn Brewery): Cleveland’s a polka town, and Goldhorn Brewery has embraced that spirit with this bright brew. Gently bittered with Slovenian Jarrylo hops, Polka City will keep you rolling out the barrel until your dupa wears out.

Winzig Haus Lichtenhainer (Hansa Brewery): Whether putting Teutonic twists on the familiar (German IPA, anyone?), or resurrecting obscure historical styles, Hansa’s beers awaken complacent palates. Their award-winning Lichtenhainer is no exception— a deliciously oddball combination of light, wheaty, sour and smoky.

Black Knight Schwarzbier (Fat Head’s Brewery): Fat Heads might be best known for IPAs, but when it comes to accolades, its German-style brews earn the highest praise. This deep, roasty black lager has been an award-winning brewpub staple from day one.

Eliot Ness Lager (Great Lakes Brewing Company): Prohibition agent and Cleveland safety director Eliot Ness was a regular at the bar that preceded Great Lakes Brewing Company’s brewpub. His namesake Vienna-style lager from Cleveland’s oldest brewery is toasty, malty and untouchably smooth.

Three Out of Five Gose (Bookhouse Brewing): Housed in the pre-Prohibition Baehr Brewing Company building, Bookhouse can’t help but delve into historical brewing recipes. Its gose is a perfect mix of traditional kettle souring techniques with modern levels of citrus and spice.

Piwo Grodziskie (Noble Beast Brewing Company): Street parties are a Cleveland tradition, including Dyngus Day—the Polish Easter Monday festival of fun, music and indulgence. Noble Beast busts out this light, smoky wheat brew yearly to kick off the post-Lenten fun.

PUCKER UP WITH THESE CLEVELAND BREWERIES SPECIALIZING IN SOUR BEERS . By Jen Jones Donatelli

Thanks to Platform Beer Co. and Bottlehouse Brewery, Cleveland is carving a nifty little niche in the sour beer sector. The former’s forthcoming Phunkenship facility will bring the phunk to the city’s Clark-Fulton neighborhood with a dedicated souring facility (replete with tasting room and event space), while the latter’s Craft Collective side project pours local sours, ciders and meads inside the new Van Aken District in Shaker Heights. (Hit up Craft Collective on S Wednesdays P OW E O U R S PHUNK RED BY for guided E N S H IP tastings at “Flight Nights.”)

HOME TEAM GRUB PROGRESSIVE FIELD MARRIES TWO OF AMERICA’S FAVORITE PASTIMES: BASEBALL AND EATING. By Jen Jones Donatelli

SAUSAGE EMPORIUMS

THESE SPOTS SERVE THE BEST LINKS IN TOWN . [ By Jen Jones Donatelli ] For a true taste of Cleveland, look no further than The Polish Boy sandwich—a native culinary classic that Esquire magazine called “soul on white.” Satisfy your soul with this grilled kielbasa creation, housed in a bun and topped with French fries, coleslaw and BBQ sauce (or hot sauce, for a caliente kick). Seti’s Polish Boy food truck is a sure bet, along with Beckham’s B&M Bar-B-Que or Mabel’s BBQ, where top chef Michael Symon has dreamed up a “Polish Girl” counterpart with kielbasa and chopped pork. In Slavic Village, Saucisson has been slicing and dicing hand-cured meats and specially spiced sausages since 2013. Led by the “Lady Butchers” of Cleveland, Melissa Khoury and Penny Barend, Saucisson offers a refreshing, responsibly-minded modern take on the traditional corner butcher shop. Across town at the West Side Market, Frank’s Bratwurst keeps ‘em coming with bratwurst sandwiches served “Cleveland-style” with horseradish, ballpark mustard and sauerkraut. Austrian immigrants opened this popular food stand in 1970, and their family recipe still delivers almost 50 years later. Top off any self-respecting sausage spree at Happy Dog in Detroit Shoreway, where hot dogs (including a vegan option), beer and tater tots are the name of the game. With 50 toppings— including vegan mango chutney and white beer cheese fondue— it’s easy to design your own dog, smorgasbord-style. Buns out!

2019–20 Dining Guide

At the home of the Indians, the available eats go way beyond hot dogs and Cracker Jack. Make your way to the Right Field District, designed to be a microcosm of Cleveland’s culinary scene with nods to neighborhood favorites like University Circle’s Dynomite Burger and Gordon Square’s Sweet Moses. The RFD also plays home to Melt Bar & Grilled, which earned “Best Food Item” kudos from Ballpark Digest in 2016 for its pierogi-packed Parmageddon sandwich. Over at the Infield District, breweries rule with Fat Head’s Brewery, the Brew Kettle, and a Great Lakes Brewing Company beer garden.

NEW EATERIES TO TRY

By Rebecca Ferlotti

1 / Good Company Butcher and the Brewer

JACK Casino

Consider this Battery Park spot a “boi’s club” of sorts—with sandwich selections like the “Bonzo Boi” (a chickpea patty with all the fixings) and self-explanatory “Chicky Boi.” Dishes like beer-battered celery root and fried bologna cheesesteak round out this menu of scratchmade, down-home American fare.

Great Lakes Brewery

The Clevelander

Located in Uptown, this Mexican spot offers science-inspired cocktails in beakers and molecular decor to sate the inner nerd in all of us. Street food-style tacos and classic fajitas round out a stellar menu, and a spacious patio beckons for when Ohio decides it’s time for warm weather.

SLIDE INTO THIRST HIT A HOME RUN WITH THE BEST PRE-GAME SPOTS BEFORE CHEERING ON THE TRIBE. By Ilona Westfall

Cold beer and baseball just seem to go hand-inhand, and there’s no better way to gear up for an Indians game than from inside a local watering hole. Wander up East 4th Street for double-headers of beer and bowling at the Corner Alley, pastureraised meat and housebrewed beer at the Butcher and the Brewer, and Irish fare and Guinness at Flannery’s Pub. Over at nearby JACK Casino, get lucky with multiple bars and an all-you-can-eat buffet. In Ohio City, tip back an Indians-themed

DO THIS

Rally Drum Red Ale at Great Lakes Brewing Company and hop on the “Fatty Wagon,” an eco-friendly shuttle that drops you off at the field. Just a pitcher’s throw away from Progressive Field? Taste your way through the holy trifecta of Indians pre-gaming spots: Brickstone, serving up wood-fired pizza across from the field; Wild Eagle Saloon, for pour-ityourself beer inebriation stations and bar grub; and The Clevelander, a favorite among locals. (Nab a spot on its patio for prime people-watching.)

DO YOURSELF A SOLID AND SKIP THE STANDARD YELLOW IN FAVOR OF LOCALLY MADE BERTMAN’S BROWN MUSTARD WHEN ENJOYING A HOT DOG… OR TWO. A CLEVELAND FAVORITE SINCE 1921!

2/ Tacologist

3 / Ball Ball Waffle Hong Kong’s street food scene has made its way to Asia Plaza with the opening of Ball Ball Waffle—hot off a successful stint at last year’s Cleveland Asian Festival. Delightfully chewy and novel to eat, these bubble waffles—aka “eggettes”—can be made sweet or savory.

4/ Ohio City Galley Choose your own culinary adventure at Ohio City Galley, which boasts four emerging restaurant concepts and a communal bar. (Like a mall food court, but way classier and tastier.) From tacos (Poca) to rice bowls (The Rice Shop), this trendy food hall has something to please every palate.

5 / Angie’s Soul CaFE With a Carnegie Avenue location opening in August, the down-home, no-frills Angie’s Soul Café puts the focus entirely on the food— which is exactly where it should be. The #SouthernComfort vibes are strong with Carolina-style catfish, beef short ribs, grits, candied yams and other soul food favorites.

Cleveland Whiskey

[ By Mary Mihaly ] One wouldn’t expect a vineyard in the gritty city, but there it is: Chateau Hough, replete with rows of grapevines and an on-site tasting room by reservation only. Innovation is the key at Cleveland Whiskey. Their bourbons and whiskeys are produced with black cherry, apple, honey locust and hickory woods; the smoke makes the flavor. Patterned after a Tuscan chapel in Italy, the new Still House at Gervasi Vineyard does double-duty as a café by day and a distillery, craft cocktail and cigar lounge by night.
