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.
More upscale than your typical watering hole, the Station boasts an open kitchen, flashy plasma screens, and a garage-door façade that rises with the mercury. Playing off its motto, “Where the neighborhood comes together,” the pub features three menus in one, with sections for Irish, American and Italian tastes. West Park Station even serves up a kiddies-only menu.
It's not always easy to peg Willeyville, the new Flats East Bank restaurant from chef-owner Chris DiLisi, but half the fun is in the discovery.

Stand-outs include lightly breaded calamari, adobo-flavored shrimp tacos, and big, juicy and flavorful pork meatballs.
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.
Eclectic and affordable pub-style comfort food is the name of the game at XYZ, with great burgers, corned beef and chicken sandies filling the bill.
