Re: “Not Your Standard Bistro: The Standard Brings Hip Neighborhood Dining to Collinwood

Silly girl, might I suggest Olive Garden if you're looking for free salad and bread?

Re: “Elementary: Crop Bistro and Bar Has Everything You Drink Down to a Science, Even the Water

Please take a portion of this effort and stop buying the majority of your ingredients from Sysco. It's pathetic.

Cheap, cheap, cheap. Tiny portions, not tiny prices and too cheap to provide bread or salad? Good luck.....

Re: “Not Your Standard Bistro: The Standard Brings Hip Neighborhood Dining to Collinwood

The place is beautiful and the food was outstanding. A lot of hardwork and vision had to be put into this space and seems to work perfectly. I wish great success to the owners. I will be back

Re: “Not Your Standard Bistro: The Standard Brings Hip Neighborhood Dining to Collinwood

Wonderful review. Having grown up on Schenely Ave. it warms my heart to see such faith in helping with the regrowth of a neighborhood, that was as eclectic as any in New York. We had it all,Movie theater,shopping,Ruth's dress shop,Peter Pan,three banks and last but not least John's Barber shop. Celebrity was no stranger,remember our Governor,Rocco,the national anthem man and of course the mayor Tommy. Memories, they can make big things happen. My applause.

Re: “Read Local: 10 Great Food Reads by Cleveland Authors

Nice to be mentioned but Cleveland Ethnic Eats has gone out of print. Copies of the last edition may still be available for sale but have not been updated since 2009. In restaurant years, that's a long long time. Article author should have checked. Sorry people. Laura Taxel

Re: “See Spot Drink: The Spotted Owl Will Bring Cocktails, Life to a 160-Year-Old Building in Tremont

Glad they're doing something with the space and this historic building, as opposed to just letting it sit there and collect dust.

Re: “Shop Like a Chef: Dean Supply

This store is awesome, and a great place to shop if you like to cook. Unfortunately, you will end up spending more than you originally intended when you're there. That's not because prices are bad, it's because they have so much cool stuff there!

Re: “Apéritifs: Let's Slow Things Down and Bring Back the Pre-Dinner Drink

Pastis are a group of liqueurs that louche (turn cloudy) when mixed with cold water/ice. I believe you meant to say that chef Gilbert's favorite pastis is Pernod, the famous anis-flavored French liqueur.

Re: “What Could Have Been: Joey's Bistro in Cleveland Heights Rests on Reputation

I just came home from dinner at Joey's Bistro on Lee in Cleveland Heights and was very disappointed. I agree with Douglas Trattner about everything, It truly could have been a great addition to the street. They did a great job updating the interior and the menu looked great. The service was fast even with our new waiter. But I did not know there were any specials, we were not finished with our salads when our entrees arrived and they needed to clear our dishes away. I just didn't finish my salad. My meal was pretty good. I had the Pasta Puttanesca which was flavorful with peppers and sausage if a bit oily. My three companions did not fare as well. A simple pasta with sauce and meatball proved bland. The eggplant parmesan was ordinary and a pizza was bland as well. I also ordered two of the Italian burgers as take out. Now I know, who would get a burger at an Italian restaurant but my 90 year old parents were craving burgers. But the focaccia they were served on ended up hard and slightly charred, the fries..well they were limp, oily Cajun fries...um in an Italian restaurant. I had a very hard time hearing those I dined with as the noise level was so high due to those new high ceilings. I will not be going back I am sorry to say but luckily there are lots of good choices for me on Lee in Cleveland Heights

Even though Bob can't spell, I feel the same way. This guy is just creepy and the wine was not all that good..

Re: “First Look: Vino Veritas Winery Wine Bar

Why would anyone go to this place? The proprietor, Anthony Nunes sits at the bar and stairs at the customers as they come in as if to ask "are you good enough to enter my place?"

Cute place, horrible management. Take a pass, plenty of other places for wine on the hill.

Re: “Apéritifs: Let's Slow Things Down and Bring Back the Pre-Dinner Drink

Sounds great. It would probably work better if having apƩritifs and digestifs didn't add $50 onto your bill. Maybe charge a few dollars for a small drink and a few dollars for the snacks. Until then, I think most people will be skipping it like they already have been.
