Best Pierogi Dinner 

John Christie's Tavern

Cevapci, schnitzel, and meltingly tender, bite-sized kaldooni (a sort of miniature pierogi with attitude) make for some mighty fine Eastern European eats at North Collinwood's John Christie's Tavern. But when we crave a taste of the Old Country, we opt for the plump potato-and-cheese pierogi: handmade, butter-drenched, and smothered beneath limp, caramelized onions. Side those suckers with sour cream and some of Beth Christie's chunky homemade applesauce, and serve 'em with an icy Stella Artois, and even your typical white-collar wonk may wax nostalgic for the days when Cleveland's Real Men operated punch presses, not PDAs.
