Great addition to the Neighborhood. Can't wait.
Can hardly wait!
Very excited for this to open.
Any connection to the Astoria neighborhood in New York?
This is great news for all of us in the near west side!
On behalf of the XYZ, we welcome ASTORIA to the neighborhood and
wish them much success!
Just another example of why the Division of Liquor Control needs to be totally abolished and freedom of markets restored to the People.
Cafe Avalaun on the east side now this on the west. A Cavs championship an American League championship-- 2016 has been quite a year !!!!
I agree with Doug's assessment but would like to add a comment about the bartending staff. In 3 experiences at the bar (I live in the neighborhood), I have not had one positive experience with a bartender. In one particular instance, one wanted tried to start an argument with me and then lectured me on "proper dining etiquette". His reaction was SO inappropriate for me asking to verify that I had received the correct draft beer, that I actually thought to myself "woah, something's really wrong with this guy. Maybe his dog died today or something". Anyhow, on my way out I mentioned something to the GM and she was apologetic but not sincere.
Good luck to you, 811. But I don't have high hopes for your success.
I hate the phrase "look no further." Like I'm supposed to find this place and suddenly Griffin Cider House, one of the best cider producers in the state, doesn't exist?
I've been in control states (Michigan, SC, Washington, etc) and none is as Draconian as Ohio; no one else, restricts 1 free samples and/or giveaway 2.diluted liquor 3 minimum pricing 4 controlled access (wouldn't greater quantity equal more tax revenue?) 5 double taxing local breweries/distilleries 6 restricting importing wine from other states. In Cali, I could buy hard liquor at Rite Aid 7 days a week from opening hour on. Even conservative Missouri is more liberal than Ohio.
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.
