Re: “A New Year Means New Dining Options in Cleveland

Why do you continue to ignore the Swenson's that has been in Broadview Heights for years now? "Shave 20 miles of your drive to the nearest location." The Broadview Road location is just 13 miles from Public Square.

Re: “Bringing Your Own Bevies to your Favorite Little Restaurant? That's Against the Law

This is just wrong. This is one example of there being too many regulations that put burdons on companies trying to exercise free enterprise its a disgrace if i own the property i should be able to do what i want period no ifs or buts about it. Its all about money with the state they get enough from our taxes dont dare say they dont.

If they're not working in hipster-yupster-trendoid-foodie "restos"...'
Do they still count? Black chefs matter!

Biagios In Eastlake (been around for 60+ years!) is also a classic favorite.

Re: “On the Appallingly Low Percentage of Black Chefs in Local Kitchens

Let me submit these names of chefs:
Keith Bowen, Eric Wells, Geoff C. Thomas, Eric Rogers, Jae Smith (who was in CLE), Stacey Stoudemire, Quisha Marbury...and I'm just getting warmed up! These are black chefs who are either running kitchens in Cleveland (some of them in multiple locations) or they're doing catering and private chef work. The people are out here working, maybe just not on your particular path as of yet.

Re: “On the Appallingly Low Percentage of Black Chefs in Local Kitchens

Bon Appetit or Compass group hires quite a few black chefs who run large accounts across the Cleveland area. But unless you have a restaurant that pumps out the same fried chicken and waffles you won't hear about them.

Re: “On the Appallingly Low Percentage of Black Chefs in Local Kitchens

Black chefs in Cleveland and NEO exist. The problem is most food writers and consumers equate the profession with restaurants. There are black chefs who are private and personal chefs and there are trained black chefs working in nursing homes/assisted living facilities, for catering companies, and more. If you meet one black chef, they can introduce you to more. If you to CCC's culinary program, they can tell you where they are. My niece, Nigel Dixon, is a chef, and has been one for years. Check universities too. Stop thinking that all chefs are in sexy jobs and start thinking about the profession overall. After all, many journalists do not work for dailies or weeklies.

Re: “Buy, Sell, Hold: The Dining Trends We Loved, and Hated, This Year

Shout out to the burger at LBM. I did not expect a metal-themed cocktail bar to have the best burger I've tasted in the region.

Roxu doesn't deserve to be on that list. The food was simply crappy, that's why it closed.

Re: “Trevor Elkins

Newburgh Heights is notorious for police harassment. I myself was stopped, ostensibly for a tail light. I was then made to do the tightrope walk and take a breathylizer. I blew a .02, well below the legal limit. But they still refused to let me go. They first called in an ambulance to check my blood sugar level. Then they brought in another officer, who started giving me the third degree on the spot. I asked if I was under arrest, and if I could talk to a lawyer. They would not give me a straight answer. Finally they placed me under arrest and took me to Bedford Hospital for a blood draw. They impounded my car, and I was not able to get my license back for three months, until I had my day in court. I ended up pleading no contest to physical control, just to get my car back. It cost me more than $1000 in court costs, impound fees, and drunk camp.

Trevor Elkins has no business running for County Democratic chair until he gets his own house in order.

Re: “The Akronpedia: A Devilstrip Dictionary of Akrony Things People in Cleveland Probably Ought to Know

I dont get all the negative comments here. This is some funny shit. And I say that as a card-carrying KSU grad, Barberton Speedway-loving Hudson native. If you cant laugh at the description of Caucasian Falls as Parma w/o polish crap... you need to go get drunk at JBs immediately.

Re: “Trevor Elkins

Police sitting on the side of the road slow the traffic moron. Not some coward, hiding, taking pictures of cars. Your full of shit, and a bold faced lier, saying that it's for safety. Yes I got a ticket, the $150 for the ticket will be the last money your businesses and community will ever receive from me. I am only one person, but I have many friends.

Re: “Ronnie Dunn

I was blessed to have Dr. Dunn at Cleveland State as a professor. He is a highly-intelligent, honorable, compassionate man.

His students, and Cleveland State, are lucky to have him.
