Joe's Deli and Restaurant

Pregnant women have been known to deliver their babies at nearby Fairview Hospital and then stop at Joe's Deli on the way home for lunch. Their loyalty is no surprise -- just look at the number of people who patiently wait at the hostess's stand almost continuously during the deli's hours of operation. To say that Joe's Deli serves good food is to say that Cleveland winters are a bit snowy. Bowls of ambrosial soup are rich with dumplings or a plump matzo ball. Lean, packed-with-flavor corned beef is stacked between tender sandwich bread. Desserts are moist and fresh, and they look as good as they taste. It's the stuff cravings are made of.
