Bourbon Street Grill 2800 Whiskey Island, 216-631-1801.
Clothes can be a real drag in the summertime -- shirts, in particular. And if you're going to Bourbon Street Grill, you don't have to bother. Boaters and jet-skiers come to this breezy restaurant/bar straight from the lake, and no one cares if they're in shorts and bikinis. Players from the volleyball league flock here after a match to replace calories. Even the soapbox racers come down the hill to join the fun. The food is mostly Cajun-themed and cheap, and it goes down best at a picnic table on a lawn affording a panoramic view of Lake Erie and the downtown skyline.
