Went there this weekend... Decent meal at best, very disappointed after my visit. $8 margarita was not that great, had too much sour in it. The taquitos were not that great either for the price of $14. I have yet to try Momocho, but a friend who dined with me said El C is terrible compared to Momocho, and it was a big disappointment for her.
total agreement! too many club owners suffer from this misconception that obnoxious music volume attracts and hold patrons. People go out to a club to mingle, have a conversation with their date or friends, and speedily abandon that club for one with an atmosphere where you don't have to shout to talk to your friends. Music volume is fine in a confined area only, but people want to socialize. DO your research.
Out in NYC area most people have never heard of "city chicken" ---I have because I grew up in Cleveland and my next door neighbor made it once a week!
I for one really loved the rock shrimp ceviche - so much so that I ordered one after tasting my friend's. I really hope they don't pull it off the menu. And I agree about the strudel. It is so darn flavorful that I almost wish it was a separate entree on the menu and a lot bigger.
I thought city chicken was pork?!
How can you call yourself a food critic ion Cleveland and not know that "city chicken" is pork?
. And as far as a Mai Tai, the last good one was in Hawaii. I can't wait for the opening. I am there :) My daugter says she wants to make her way through the entire drink menu. (I'm hoping not in the same night )
I can't wait. I'll be making the trip from Upstate NY for a drink once you open. F.O.M.
Proper tiki in the NEOH once again? My booze-filled prayers have been answered! Hopefully they look into obtaining some custom made collectable mugs for their bar from Tiki Farm or the like.

but i really do say i'm in the mood for some crab rangoon
Really looking forward to this! Cannot wait for those tropical drinks!
Alan - I'm glad to post under my real name (Julia Schnell), but I was still unimpressed by the service I received when I went there. I've gone a few times now; while sitting at the bar I had a hard time getting service. I won't make the claim that I wasn't sufficiently young-and-beautiful to get service (because that seems unfair to the bartender), but they weren't attentive to the whole bar. On another occasion our server dropped off the bill halfway through our meal and wouldn't come back to the table for the rest of the evening. She also forgot several items on our order after we reminded her of them. Maybe servers just need better training!
Looking forward to this!
Admittedly, I actually do say something along the lines of, "I can really go for a crab rangoon" on occasion. . .
Good Ole" American Hot Dogs... RedHot Cabana Baby .......... Get Yours !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great idea, but we still have cotton club, it's the last local brand around.
WAY TO GO MIKE!!!
I'll never forget living in Tremont then, a busy night after fat cats first opened I found my burned out jeep in the empty lot next to fat cats, towed it home with my other jeep right past fat cats and Lola, if looks could kill I would be dead.
Or the parking lot for fat cats was just a dirty empty lot, Inside futuristic retro lounge outside... Bombed out shit hole dirt lot
