Re: “What's Fresh at: Deagan's Kitchen & Bar

Too bad there's probably cockroaches crawling all over it at night time when the lights go out. Deagans has the biggest roaches I've ever seen up north.

Re: “Liquid Gold: BottleHouse Brewery in Cleveland Heights is the City's First Full-Fledged Meadery, but the Brewers Say there's Room for Competition

They've got to get better at brewing. Their beer is not good. Love the space and the crowd, but I have yet to have something tasty from their taps. I suspect extracts in the brewing.

Re: “A Tradition in the Making: Tim Bando Brings Maturity, Value and Something for Everyone to Chagrin Falls with Grove Hill

The servers had no clue, served the wine after our first course. We had to ask for bread...even after we ordered mussles. The menu is somewhat limited if you ask me. On the other hand, the food was very very good. The back of the house really needs to straighten out the front of the house before I go back..

Re: “A Tradition in the Making: Tim Bando Brings Maturity, Value and Something for Everyone to Chagrin Falls with Grove Hill

Doug, you are pretty right on. Service: We had a server who admitted she had never heard of a brined pork chop.... as though it was something new ("he brines it... Never heard of that....") Food: I also noted the UN-chopped chopped salad /, as you did. (good salad but time for a new name, Tim...it is not chopped unless the lettuce is chopped too..). We also had cold pasta... (as "didn't heat it up" cold, not "Sat took long before serving" cold... And frankly temp was off on all 3 hot dishes we got...) And though I can't put my finger on the dish I remember one that was a "please charge me more but give me more" kind of thing. not a complaint about price of item, but more of a needs to be more but I will pay for it kind of thing.


Rumor around town is that old timers who probably pay $14 for a mediocre (but loved) burger at Ricks Cafe - which is not shy about charging high prices for ok food,- are angry this place doesn't have those legacy dishes at cheap prices... "Too expensive" in a town of well off folks..

Re: “A Tradition in the Making: Tim Bando Brings Maturity, Value and Something for Everyone to Chagrin Falls with Grove Hill

Food was average, pricey, service slow (they need a much better wait staff) dark not a friendly atmosphere. They said they spent $600K on renovations??? they kept all the old tables and booths, not impressed. By the way, most of the CF folks I talked to don't rate it very high either.

Re: “Time Traveler

The odd sized tables are so authentic Poland... Most could not survive real life in Polska. Seven Roses is one of the last true authentic Polish eateries in Ohio.

Re: “Time Traveler

The schnitzel is Lubelski style. Egg coated. Southeast Poland. Like chili here, pork cutlet has regional variations.

Re: “From Jamaica, with Love: Ocho Rios Dishes up Authentic, Mouth-Watering Jamaican in South Collinwood

Food was very tasty. Curried goat over rice/beans was delicious. The oxtails were super tender. I would like a little more heat. I understand this is a new operation and I am sure as time goes on the interior will improve. But it doesn't detract from the great food. Will go again for sure.

Re: “This Isn't Your Parents' Chinese Restaurant: Han Chinese Gives a Modern Touch to the Asian Staples

Open kitchen? There was no open kitchen there. They could use a carpet change from the old stained one. Food was decent but no different really from some of the other Chinese restaurants in the area

Re: “Q & A: Diane Sikorski, aka the Pie Lady

I worked at Bakers Square for five years, so I am very familiar with their pies. Once you try a piece of pie from Humble Pie you will understand why people are willing to pay $23 for a pie. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Bakers Square cream pies are shipped in, and the fruit pies arrive frozen and are baked on site. I believe they come from Minnesota. I used to eat the filling and leave the crust. I eat every bite of Diane's pie crust. Her crusts are made with lard, butter, flour and water. Bakers Square probably uses preservatives to ensure they arrive fresh. I stand by my original statement. Best pies in Cleveland. Hands down.

Re: “Q & A: Diane Sikorski, aka the Pie Lady

What's so elitist about homemade pies? I'd much rather give $25 to a hard-working woman who makes delicious pies with her own hands (an AL resident no less) than to some multi-million dollar company who makes factory-made chemical pies with with an ingredient list that reads like the periodic table of elements...
