Re: “A Dated Menu and Uneven Execution Hamper Merchant Street Eatery's Hopes of Lasting

Not sure how you go once a week for sandwiches when the market next door has been closed for almost 2 months

Re: “A Dated Menu and Uneven Execution Hamper Merchant Street Eatery's Hopes of Lasting

This is a shame to hear, the owner couldn't possibly be any nicer. I live in Tremont and the connected market has become my go-to for wine and quick sandwiches. They use fresh, unique ingredients and the sandwiches rotate often. I go at least once a week! Hoping this is just some growing pains at the restaurant!

Re: “Chicago's Home of Chicken & Waffles Dishes Up Comfort, Could Still Use Some TLC

Haven't been to the restaurant yet, but it sounds fun. That payment method (server coming to the table with a hand-held card reader and waiting while it's used) is how it's done in Canada and has been for some time (not sure when it started, but several years ago in Vancouver, that was all we encountered; ditto with Toronto.) It worked wonders for my perpetually undertipping husband. We'd all better get used to it.

Re: “The Joys and Flavors of Ethiopian Cuisine Are on Full Display at Zoma

Just an FYI about the shopping strip on Lee Road. The owners are in the process of planning for a major renovation of the block with the commitment to making this an updated location for shopping and dining. They are committed to Cleveland Heights and appreciate support for the Lee road community.

You mention the Empress Taytu, but it's a shame you didn't do a comparative review of it with Zoma. Or indeed, never do, between any two restaurants.

Re: “Rising Star: Emma Scheer, Pastry Chef at the Union Club

Erm, that should have read that "deserts" does not equal "desserts." Spelling counts.

A dead end is when you can not proceed further on the road. The end of the Jennings Freeway is called an "end."

I love this store! I've been going to this place for years for the halal meat and fresh produce! And all the workers are so friendly!

We visited yesterday and bought chicken and lamb shwarma sandwiches, a dozen falafel, stuffed grape leaves and some backlawa. It was all delicious.

This has become a favorite of mine. The beef and lamb kefta mix was perfect. The prepared tabbouleh, gyro sauce and hummus are all good. The produce and meat are all priced very reasonably.

Looking forward to trying out what the chef has to offer. It'll be nice to have some added perspective to the current cuisine lineup available in Willoughby.
