Re: “The Pompadour in Fairport Harbor Delivers Tapas Worth the Drive

If you look up HIDDEN GEM in the dictionary the POMPADOUR is what you will find. Its without question the best spot east of the river. The tapas are creative and full of flaver. The service is outstanding. The cocktails are as good as you will find at any top mixology bars. Good wine and beer selection. This team just cares so much about the diners experience. They could make it in Manhattan which is one of my ultimate litmus test. If you live on the east side and you havent been here yet shame on you. If you live on the west side its worth the drive to come check it out.

Re: “It's Hard Not to Love George's Kitchen, a Westside Mainstay for Almost 40 Years

I love George's. Have been going there since the 80's. Always sat where Judy was working and after she left sat with Donna. The have great food and many great servers. I now live in Arizona and miss going to George's.

Re: “It's Hard Not to Love George's Kitchen, a Westside Mainstay for Almost 40 Years

I love Georges! It is my favorite place! Me and my children have been going there for many years... Great food, Fast and friendly service and your meal will always be hot.. The Chicken noodle soup is awesome and he has even been voted best soup! We have met George on many occasions... He is not the average stuck up business man but instead he's friendly, social and is not afarid to shake hands or give hugs on your way out and always says Thank you and see you next time... Good luck in continuing to run your family busines and serving the public...

You cant beat Georges for breakfast. 3 eggs, home fries, toast & coffee for under $5.00. The food also comes very fast and hot. You will never get a cold meal at Georges. NEVER.

I love George's Kitchen. Their Greek pork chops are excellent. I also love their tuna melts with mushrooms, grilled cheese sandwiches, and Mac and cheese.

Re: “Distill Table is Already Bustling in Lakewood, But it Could Improve on Menu and Ingredient Choices

Limpwood nailed it!

Lame gets what it wants and deserves in Le-Wood. On-late-trend + half-a$$ effort + full cost = Le-Wood 'food scene'.

Y'all think it's so great and walk-able and progressive in Lakewood ... Awesome, stay there and don't ever leave because no one else around here cares or thinks so.

Stay lame and keep it mediocre!

Re: “Distill Table is Already Bustling in Lakewood, But it Could Improve on Menu and Ingredient Choices

Lakewood establishments consistently fall short. They all sound good, with on-trend offerings, interesting menus and the latest decor. But somehow, every visit there ends in disappointment. All coulda shoulda woulda over there in mediocreville. And nobody notices how lame it is.

Re: “Introducing the New Ohio City Galley Chefs

Finally had a chance to check this place out. What a joke. "Hot Chicken Sandwich" was not spicy at all. Had 3 chicken fritters on it that kept falling off. Not to mention, the sandwich is sitting in a river of some kind of sauce on the plate. All soggy, I used up 6 napkins while trying to eat this thing. For $14 are you kidding me? Plus, for some reason, they solicited tips at the register. Why? It's not full service.

I've been going to "food halls" (nice hipster term, Doug) my whole life, e.g. mall food courts. I would have preferred a Spicy Chicken sandwich from Wendy's instead of whatever that was. And I surely would not be giving them a tip.

Not innovative, not good, not worth your time. The place was full of hipsters in flood pants and oversized horn rims, and too much disposable income. Mehhhhh, fuck that. I'm going to Wendy's!

Re: “The Production Facility and Bakery Behind Aladdin's 40 Restaurants

I've always enjoyed Aladdin's. My only critique is they need to bring back the garlic soup they had for a year or two. It's been about 15 years since they had it, and my wife still talks about how good it was.

Re: “The Production Facility and Bakery Behind Aladdin's 40 Restaurants

Love all the food at Aladdin's Eatery and I usually get the V-Nine soup, the Veggies appetizer with falafal, baba and hummus to share, and the Aladdin's Favorite combo (yes I share some) with a Fatoosh Salad with chicken to take home for later. I always thought that I hated turnips until I unknowingly ate their pickled turnips. Now I can't get enough and the kids love them too.

The article states that the owners would periodically have to go to Detroit, Chicago, etc. to buy supplies when they first opened in 1994. Why not just go over to Aladdin's Bakery which has been around since the early 1970's and I've been going there since the late 70's or early 80's. They supply other retailers and I would think Alladin's Bakery would have loved to build a working relationship and trade ideas. Good business for everyone and it helps build product and cultural awareness.

Re: “Ninja City Settles Into New Gordon Square Home After Four Years in University Circle

I won't go to restaurant that doesn't know it's strength. Soul food, Mexican, Chinese, Vietnamese... What cuisine do you do well? Stick with that.

Re: “Polpetta Takes Meatballs on a Clever and Wholly Satisfying Culinary Journey

so katie, if there was market for their alleged "chef genius", why have they closed? Why do I have to be corporate chooser to object to over-priced concept?

so what exactly is he trying to offer? soul food, Mexican, Vietnamese, Chinese Restaurants should specialize in their expertise, not do all things for all.

They had to leave University Circle and start over. Their business tanked after those racist messages the owner sent to that Yelp reviewer.

Re: “Ninja City Settles Into New Gordon Square Home After Four Years in University Circle

Been there 4 times and have tried lots of things. Papaya salad was really fresh tasting, but no heat and my least favorite being served in the area...the Pho was really good and the etouffee was really delicious. I'll go back and will bring friends.
