Sporting a pick-up truck-chic decor, the space is festooned with license plates, hubcaps and full-size automobiles. There are entire walls of acoustic guitars. It shouldn't be hard to grab a drink here thanks to three bars on the first floor and another upstairs. The menu is a mix of staples like nachos, wings, pizza, chopped salads, burgers, ribs and pasta.
The 23-story building was the first major project in Cleveland to use metric measurement throughout the construction process. The entire 55,000-ton weight of the building rests on a seven-foot-thick concrete mat that required a pour of more than 1,000 truckloads of cement. Groundbreaking was on May 28, 1997, making it the first federal courthouse to be built in Cleveland in 88 years. It opened for business in 1999.
Commuters who missed the upscale breakfast-and-lunch options at Juniper Grille can take comfort in Carnegie Kitchen, which seems to have picked up where that diner left off. Chef-owner Jeff Uniatowski, formerly of Mise and House of Blue, crafts a value-driven menu with broad appeal. Contemporary versions of diner classics like steak and eggs, corned beef hash and bagels and lox give way to chopped salads, mile-high Reubens, and grilled-salmon sandwiches.
Downtown breakfast spots are rare, and handsome downtown breakfast spots with free parking are rarer still. But that's what you'll find at Carnegie Kitchen — along with a value-driven menu with broad appeal.
Sports fans and would be American Idols meet at this popular pub in the heart of West Park.
Weekends, after the dinner crowd thins out, and this upscale Italian restaurant becomes a hotbed for hip, bluesy jazz.
Chinato makes diners feel special with redefined Italian dishes served in a contemporary setting. Start with glistening crudo or a bowl of unabashedly salty seafood fritto misto. Chinato's pastas are lush, dreamy and (fortunately) available in half portions. Entrées include buttery skate wing, Amarone-braised beef and brilliant porchetta.
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.
This cavernous club seems to have a dancer on duty for every candlelit table -- and it has a lot of tables. Must be over 21 and well dressed to enter, but most guests are closer to 30. The complex also has an opulent sports bar, spa and champagne suites.
