Re: “Pacific East Now Open at Crocker Park

I checked the menu and... wow that looks really bad. No sushi? And no Japanese food aside from Hibachi and Ramen? Sandwiches?

It's a shame they're lowering the quality and effort as they expand because the Coventry location is a pretty good sushi spot, and the west side needs another good sushi spot than Ginko.

Re: “Phoenix Coffee is Reportedly Headed to Lakewood

Ah, yes, thank you all non-Lakewood residents for complaining about this on behalf of Lakewood residents. I especially know the one who mentioned "The Coffee Pot" is not a resident, because that is a good diner with standard diner coffee, not a place you'd go to get just coffee.

As a Lakewood resident, I look forward to this! I think we can handle a donut shop and two coffee shops within the 33 block stretch between Warren and the Cleveland border along Madison.

Re: “Falafel Cafe Reopening in New Uptown Space in March

Surprised they're reopening, there are plenty of better Middle Eastern options pretty much anywhere else in Cleveland. One of the few places I didn't finish my meal. Yelp's 3/5 average confirms I'm not the only one who didn't think it was great - small portions, bland flavors.

Falafel Cafe was a pioneer but not sure it'll survive when its competition is more than Chopstick, Rascal House, and Qdoba.

Re: “Old Fashion Hot Dogs on Lorain Closing at the End of March After 92 Years of Business

Huh, whenever I see people complaining to the manager or yelling at employees, it's not millennials.

With Square, accepting credit cards is trivial. A $10 transaction on Square costs a trivial 36 cents in fees - it's just a part of the cost doing business nowadays. Set a $5 minimum if you must, millennials will buy a drink to hit that minimum if they have to. And "entitled" millennials will often hit the 10% or 15% tip button on the touch screen on a to go order, because it's convenient.

Re: “Wild Mango at Great Northern Mall has Closed

Their voicemail says they are closed for renovations. Did you confirm that it's actually closed?

All commenters here only have one comment - on this article. Suspicious.
