An earthy swirl of brick, glass and polished wood, Crave provides a warm backdrop for chefs DeAnna Akers and Aaron Hervey's long, inventive menu of high-octane treats, featuring everything from Black Angus burgers to porcini-dusted scallops. The bar offers an enticing roundup of imported and craft-brewed beers, along with well-priced wines and savory martinis.

Chef/owner Zack Bruell has netted nearly all the fish in the sea to craft his Asian-tweaked oceanic menu. Impeccably fresh fish is served raw, poached, deep-fried, grilled, roasted, seared and sautéed. Stellar sushi courtesy of in-house sushi chef. Many wonderful non-fish selections as well.
This is what happens when you mix devotion to mindful living with a straight-out passion for delicious food: You get deceptively simple and savory entrées — like slow-roasted pork shoulder or braised breast of free-range chicken — inspired by seasonal, regional and often organic ingredients, and an artfully rustic ambiance that underscores the handcrafted quality of the cuisine. Yes, it is a long ride to Wooster. But it's worth it.

An Irish bar on steroids, the Harp isn’t just your corner joint with a few shamrocks on the wall. It boasts a large Irish-influenced menu and a spacious patio with a view of the lake. The music’s as likely to be rootsy rock or blues as Irish.
Close your eyes, and you can almost hear the roar of the surf from your seat inside this Florida-style seafood house, an East Side institution, where the crabcakes are sweet and crunchy, and the puffy-battered scrod and scallops seem lighter than an Atlantic breeze. Beer and wine; small selection of liquor.
From the intricately folded napkins to the carved carrot roses, this intimate Thai restaurant in Tremont serves up the eye candy as well as a solid assortment of well-prepared standards — pad Thai, chicken satay, and spicy green curry.
Live oldies, rock, and blues invigorate the weekend crowds at Under C's Lounge, the spacious basement club adjoining Carrie Cerino's Italian restaurant.
HPP's Beachwood location is big, manly and urbane, with all the trappings of an upscale midwestern steakhouse. Happily, the food — shrimp cocktails, Kobe beef burgers and of course, thick, juicy steaks — is as satisfying as the setting, and the place is as popular for after-work unwinding as it is for weekend splurges.
A happy alliance of modern architecture and contemporary cuisine, Table 45 offers an enticing collection of global fare that blends sophistication with unpretentious appeal. The kitchen may borrow freely from Indian, Mediterranean, and South American pantries, but the clear, focused flavors are all its own.
A cool vibe and a sizzling menu of attentively prepared American fare have turned Doug and Karen Katz's bistro into one of the city's top restaurants. "Classical simplicity" is the watchword here, and when those classical techniques are applied to first-rate ingredients, the results are often nothing less than astonishing. Interesting list of food-friendly wines.
Always energetic and occasionally riveting rustic Mediterranean and American cuisine leads the way at this chef-driven bistro in Kent. Above-average desserts, too, from an in-house pastry chef.
Part of a national chain that attempts to recreate the experience of a boisterous Italian wedding circa 1950, Buca di Beppo is crowded, noisy and fun.

As cozy as a colonial tavern, this well-appointed dining room in the middle of secluded Gates Mills features an eclectic lineup of Italian standards, along with an assortment of sandwiches, burgers, chops, and a popular chicken pot pie. While not every dish is as magical as the setting, Sara’s makes a convenient, non-chain-linked alternative for suburban East Siders.
For those who have come to this entertainment complex primarily to play the state-of-the-art games and then find that the starship piloting, dinosaur dodging, and race-car driving have left them peckish, meals in the lavishly appointed Grand Dining Room are generally good-tasting, satisfying, and reasonably priced conveniences.
A little bit Greek, a little bit Middle Eastern and perhaps even slightly northern Indian, the names, ingredients and flavor notes of Anatolia's authentic Turkish cuisine will strike familiar chords for veteran tabletop travelers. "Don't-miss" dishes include sleek and smoky baba ghannouj, lamb-and-beef doner kebab and its yogurt-topped sibling, iskender. To drink, splurge on a bottle of Kalecik Karasi, a full-bodied red from Turkey's most prestigious vineyard.
Cleveland's own Hospitality Restaurants scores again with this Italian-accented steakhouse, where the menu includes everything from rib, sirloin, and strip steaks to salmon, spicy veal meatballs, and Boursin-stuffed Sicilian peppers. An extensive wine list and professional service are additional reasons to visit.
This beautifully renovated space inside a former appliance store captures the energy and appearance of an authentic Irish pub, with a stone fireplace, stained-glass windows, and a boisterous clientele. The simply prepared pub fare makes a fitting sop for any of the 20 beers on draft. And because owner Patrick Campbell is a professional Irish hoofer, you never know when dancing may erupt.
That Thai cuisine now flourishes in Canal Fulton is one of life's happy culinary surprises. And for that, we give thanks to chef-owner V-Li Van Sickel, a Thai native whose comfy Stark County dining room is more down-home than exotic, and whose preparations are subtle and accessible to midwestern palates. Among our picks are the fragrant soups, smoky pad Thai, and for dessert, the enticing sweet rice with custard.
The atmosphere at this upscale Chinese restaurant is relaxed and friendly, and the refined cuisine goes far beyond won ton soup and egg rolls. Imaginative preparations include dishes like ginger-spiced sea bass, scallion-studded strip steak, and lamb served with pineapple-piqued fried rice, although classics like egg-drop soup and mu shu pork are also on hand.
A laid-back alternative to the Warehouse District's pricey haute spots, this nautically themed tavern specializes in fish, seafood, and plenty of beer, in bottles and on tap. One of downtown's best happy hours.
True to its name, the Cabin looks like a cabin inside and out. Lounge acts play in the bar, where couples cut a rug after the dinner crowd thins out.
There’s something for everyone at this oddball crossroads tavern, from grilled bologna and pizza to Kobe beef and lobster.
