Re: “Doors Shut on Dragonfly and Garage Bar

@L.P., I'm sorry for you and your staff but lets be real about this. Way before you and Marlin teamed up this city has been filled with restauranteurs and employees that volunteer their time, support local farmers and businesses, and give back to their communities. This has been going on a long, long, time. The difference is that successful restauranteurs keep their heads down, take care of their businesses and stay out of the drama. Not to be a naysayer at an unfortunate time but come on! A day doesn't go by when the words drama and Marlin don't collide! Somehow Marlin and sustainibility just don't seem to go together.

Anytime a restaurant closes in Cleveland it is a sad day for everyone, especially the city itself. Maybe its time that everyone become better partners in the restaurant community itself instead of claiming he personally created it.

Re: “New Bar/Restaurant Has Some Worried W. 25th is Becoming the New W. 6th

You all need to just pipe-down and cool it. Lets get it clear who the real pioneers of Ohio City are. Talking sustainibility? Parker was doing this way before most of you Ohio City newbies were born and Karen Small has been carrying the flag ever since. Small plates? Duh. KeKA. Beer? Great Lakes. Neighborhood joints? How about Mike Roman the original brains behind the ABC? The original Fulton Avenue Cafe.The Old Angle? We've have not all been down here since the 80's building, fighting, and setting up OUR "shitty" neighborhood, so we can raise our children, walk the streets, build our businesses and pave the way all you critics and "saviors" to take credit for it. Do your homework, be a constructive part of the neighborhood or shut up & go home.

Re: “Order Up!

Glad to see you mention Alaturka. The service takes alittle bit of patience but it is so worth it. The owners are lovely people and the food as authentic as it gets! Yummy bread, amazing vegetarian dishes and the lamb and okra will keeps me going back. Not a terrible wine list either for a small joint!
