Another example of why Ohio has the reputation of being a backward, provincial, low-class, unsophisticated wasteland filled with hicks and yokels. As long as its state bureaucracy clings to medieval policies, the rest of the country will continue to think of Ohio that way. Somewhere, the shade of H.L. Mencken is laughing himself silly at the uncultured Buckeye booboisie.
An upset that will kill the creative freedom at the many bars my husband and I consult for. Leave it to the State of Ohio to put itself behind in the industry once again.
I wonder which national boring liquor association promised someone a cushy job or some other sort of kickback for eliminating the upstart competition...or if they really are this stupid...
Time to call your state senator or Kasich
How can the people who enjoy this creativity and also enjoy the unique things help? Who do we write to? What can be done to halt this? I'm legitimately asking.
A perfect article explaining why you dont ever vote to put statist in charge.
Remove the board completely and let the owner, and thus the consumer, make a decision about what liquor they want to order.
However I wouldn't hold my breathe waiting for people to vote for free markets and few minds here in the People's State of Ohio.
Bureaucracy at its worse. Fee the rum.
Fedman maybe you should open your mind a bit and give some of the newer producers a try such as M Cellars. I guarantee you we are delivering you the unexpected and it's not what your used or what your comment refers too. As far as the chef-driven restaraunts go you might start to look around and notice our wines are on the lists for good reason. Give our M Cellars wines a chance.
despite review, note that chef-driven restaurants that tout "local/seasonal/organic' do NOT serve Ohio ofrtified koolaid wines, nor will you see Ohio wines served outside Ohio, fo rgood reason.
No offense, but this isn't really "local". It's practically Sandusky. If you want good cider, go to Griffin Cider House in Lakewood. Now that's local. Brewed in Westlake.
Sounds like a great place!
I'm excited for November to get here so I can find edible gluten-free bakery in the neighborhood!!!
Awesome, Cleveland can stand many more of these and congrats to Laura and Elyssa for being in the vangaurd.
Niko's in North Royalton has a clam/lobster bake ever Saturday in Oct! Great prices and huge lobster!
Wierd review. The title doesnt really match the article. I like the place and think its much better then you write about.
Stancato's has an awesome clambake too, final one is Saturday, October 8... They have a dine in and a take out one. You have to have a reservation, it will sell out!
Mediocre experience. Only good part was (i) server was nice and (ii) interior was big city nice. Food was super weak and very overpriced. So many restaurant entrepreneurs price outside their strike zone and this is one of Cleveland's top offenders.
The gumbo tho!!! Being a girl from South Louisiana... They have the best I've had around! It's spicy so look out.
They consider vegetables and hummus an entree?
