What's in a name?
Don't go to Coventry looking for Maxx & Angelo's Grille; it's not there. Instead, the new Hyde Park Restaurant Systems outpost at 1825 Coventry Road has been renamed Sal & Angelo's, "to avoid any confusion in the marketplace." The Hyde Park folks sent out a press release earlier this month announcing the name change; seems the original trademarked moniker shared "certain similarities" to another business operating in several states outside Ohio. But whatever you call it, it sounds like the casual Italian steakhouse serves some fine fare, including smoked mozzarella ravioli, Gorgonzola tenderloin, and short ribs, osso bucco style. The 5,000-square-foot dining room also features an open kitchen and a wood grill for specialty pizza and seafood, à la its brothers, Blake's Grille in Chagrin Falls and the Metropolitan Café in the Warehouse District. Sal & Angelo's is open Monday through Thursday, 5 to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday until 11 p.m., and Sunday 4 to 9 p.m.
The fun never stops...
Chef/owner Michael Herschman always cooks up good times at Mojo (2221 Professor Street, 216-592-6656), his hip Tremont hangout. Ongoing highlights include Thursday night 4 X 4 dinners (4 courses, 4 wines, 40 bucks), nightly prix fixe chef's tastings (3 courses for around $30), and live jazz every Tuesday and Wednesday evening. The place can get pretty busy, so reservations are a good idea. And if you want to make a little Mojo magic in the privacy of your own kitchen, check out the February issue of Bon Appétit. The magazine's popular R.S.V.P. column answers a request from a North Olmsted fan for the recipe for Herschman's Warm Arugula Salad.
