Re: “Cleveland Bagel Co. Now Open in Ohio City

Originally from Jersey where my father drove into Manhattan Saturday mornings to bring home fresh bagels, I was spoiled - and cursed forever in my search for an authentic bagel. When I moved away from NJ, I always compared the local options to NY bagels. Cleveland Bagel lifted the curse with their tough, twisty, chewy, tasty bagel. If you haven't tried them - you're missing a great bagel.

Re: “Okin and Bostwick of Cork & Cleaver Buy Reddstone, Plan Second Eatery

Sorry for the ousting of the comedy shows - hopefully the quality of the shows will allow them to find a new home, but why dump on the new owners and their business? The new owner is one of the founders of Dinner in the Dark - a chef driven event that raises money for local charities every month ... so, I'm looking forward to talented chefs who care about the community coming into my neighborhood.

Re: “Cleveland Bagel Co. - Where Montreal Meets New York City

As a transplant from NJ/NY these are some of the best bagels I've ever had. The texture is amazing. I love getting one with my Rising Star coffee in the morning, but cannot wait for your shop to open. Ohio City or Gordon Square would be great. Thank you for restoring my faith in bagels east of the Delaware River.

Re: “Court Rules Cleveland's Traffic Cameras Unconstitutional; Cameras Remain Operational While City Reviews Order: UPDATE

If the camera placement seemed to be remotely for public good - traffic calming on residential streets to protect residents - I would be less upset about these tickets. But having them in commercial areas, on 4 lane roadways that are posted as 25 mph - when parallel, 2 lane, heavily residential streets are posted as 35 - seems like the ultimate GOTCHA. Take a look at where these cameras are posted - then tell me how they're helping the neighborhoods they're in versus just padding the pockets of the contractor and the City.

Re: “15 of the Best Pizza Places in Cleveland, East to West

I'm from New Jersey -- which has better pizza than New York any day! And, I've been working my way though Cleveland pizza options searching for 'my pizza place'. I've tried a lot on this list and have to say Sainato's is my place. Their pepperoni is delicious!! It's totally worth trying to find them during the bridge construction!!

Re: “ Cleveland's streets of fire

We're new to the neighborhood and had heard about this, but didn't know what to expect. They put on an amazing show - and I look forward to enjoying their tradition for many 4ths to come.
