Grotto specializes in Italian wines and tapas-style dishes. The focal point is a 1,000-bottle stone-and-brick wine cellar. The menu offers options for small and larger appetites, with items like antipasto plates, osso buco sliders, calamari, and grilled shrimp. In addition to a few soups and salads, the heartier fare includes pizzas and pastas.
Filled with maps (of Ireland, Cleveland, and the world), this downtown pub is big enough for the small airplane hanging from the ceiling to fly around in.
Cobblestone roads lead to the best beers around. The tasting room provides a bird's-eye view of the shiny steel tanks and antique bar that Eliot Ness once bellied up to. The cellar bar is less bright, but even more atmospheric.
Baker and proprietor John MacMillan left a corporate job to open this bakery. Now he's up to his elbows in dough and couldn't be happier. Crisp baguettes, dense loaves made with organic flours, tender sweet rolls, berry-filled muffins, and old-fashioned cookies come rolling out of John's ovens. Enjoy them at an indoor table with a cup of coffee or tea; better yet, in summer, eat your snack on the breezy porch.
Now under the ownership of first-class culinarian Manny Nieves, this Rocky River anchor is part wine shop, part gourmet market, and part deli, featuring everything from Saturday-morning coffee and pastries to weeknight carryout dinners.

Pie man Joe Schlott bakes his offerings fresh daily from all-natural ingredients, with locally grown fruits and pure-butter crusts. The result is 35 varieties of delicious seasonal pies, both sweet and savory. Pick one up at the store. Or order by phone for pick up the next day.
The little sushi bar that could now tosses a mean lobster tail and steak on the hibachi. Wash everything down with a thimble of sake or a cold Kirin. And save room for some green tea ice cream.
This is the place to come if you crave authentic homemade Greek specialties, like souvlakia, dolmades, avgolemono and spanakopita. Or grab a $4 gyro and some handcut fries. Open for lunch and dinner.
Globetrotter, baker, and neighborhood booster, Niki Gillota offers a tempting array of edibles, including soups, sandwiches, and freshly made muffins, scones and pastries. Oven-baked chili is a mild-mannered crowd-pleaser, and rich lattes — like the cinnamon-scented “Mexico City” — have earned a following.
Established in 1918, Guarino's is one of Cleveland's oldest restaurants and is still a family operation. While the decor tends toward Victoriana, the kitchen's pasta, veal and seafood dishes are all Italian.
EST 1936. One of the oldest bars in the Cleveland area. Recent upgrades include a new brick patio, refurbished original barstools and kitchen serving food again for the first time since 1959. RESTAURANT DETAILS Old school scratch kitchen serving a full menu and top notch burgers from The Westside Market. Daily comfort food specials, several dozen craft beers alongside choice liquors.

Since opening at Beachwood's posh lifestyle center Legacy Village, this Asian bistro has been turning heads as much for its splashy décor as for its food — a collection of Southeast Asian staples like pho, pad Thai and many other noodle, rice, and stir-fry dishes. In the process, Gia Lia gives Eastsiders an elegant space to sip, twirl, and spoon up some approachable Asian grub.
Overstuffed corned beef on rye, pastrami platters, kosher salami stacks sided with potato salad.

Having worked at famed Nobu, chef Dante Boccuzzi had lofty aspirations when creating Ginko, his subterranean sushi restaurant that sits below the chef's eponymous Dante. As a result, Ginko is a paean to fish, most of it raw, some of it rolled, all of it exceptional. Diners seated at one of the two booths can also enjoy shabu shabu, Japanese-style fondue. Beer, wine, and sake are available.
A devastating fire put Grumpy’s out of commission for two years, but owner Kathy Owad has resurrected the beloved Tremont café in a cozy new space.

Expect hearty plates of reasonably priced, stick-to-your-ribs comfort food served with cheerfulness.
Blink your eyes as you zip through town, and you're likely to miss this little Italian restaurant — and that would be a shame, because the selection is broad, the preparations are sophisticated, and the prices are reasonable.
