Imported from Buffalo, the Chocolate Bar is part nightclub, part restaurant. By day, the airy space bustles with lunchtime activity, with diners digging into affordable salads, sandwiches, and entrées. At night, ladies (and the men who love them) pair chocolate martinis with decadent desserts. While chocolate finds its way into all manner of menu items, it's wise to stick to those that come with whipped cream or alcohol.
Snug and friendly, Corks Wine Bar is a delightful spot to savor favorite wines, develop new passions and have a good time doing it.

Not since Symon and Herschman ran dueling bistros across the street from one another has this end of Professor been so lively. Press is a "wine bar" in name alone as the breadth and quality of the food here bares little in common with what typically passes as grub at others in the genre. Prosciutto-wrapped monkfish, deftly grilled steak, and a tasty crab cake sandwich prove the range of the chef's talents. At eight selections, the wine-on-tap list is one of the longest in town.
Soft seating, candlelight, and knowledgeable staffers fill this suburban wine bar with easy elegance.

Cindy Good has always loved the small-town charm of Berea. Doing her part to snazz it up, Good opened a combination wine bar and retail shop. The knowledgeable shopkeeper tracks down the best labels from small producers' wines you won't find at grocery stores. Even better, two enomatic machines dispense tastes of 16 varieties, so customers can try before they buy. Wines are sold at state minimum prices. For those who wish to enjoy their booty on premises alongside, say, an artisan cheese board, a $7 cork fee is added.
Wood & Wine will never be a romantic Italian ristorante. But that doesn’t bother the west-side diners who fill the place almost nightly. The star of the show here is thin-crusted, wood-fired pizza. Round out the meal with hearty, flavorful, and justly priced pasta dishes. A handful of steaks and fish are available for the carb-phobic. Extensive wine list with more than few gems.
