Michael Symon

When the folks at Destination Cleveland recently held their annual meeting, a gala affair that's something like a pep rally for the city complete with humongotron action at the Q, they enlisted chef and restaurateur Michael Symon to be the keynote speaker. It was the perfect choice, obviously: Symon champions the city with all the enthusiasm of a cheerleader. You gotta admire the way Symon, who admits his visits to West Side Market as a youth inspired him to become a cook, regularly bashes his simple-minded New York friends who refer to the city as the "Mistake on the Lake."
