If You Were Leaving Cleveland Forever, What Would You Get For Your Last Meal?

Posted By on Wed, Jun 11, 2014 at 12:04 PM

Redditer TPH2 posted a query on the social sharing site last night asking, simply, If you were leaving Cleveland forever, what would you get for your last meal?

Oh, how the impassioned responses have flooded in (each more "Clevelandy" than the next).

Here are some our favorites:

funkmunk3y: Geraci's large pepperoni

rcc13:[Mitchell's] Caramel fudge brownie and caramelized chocolate.

xkisses: Cassoulet from l'albatros gets my vote, every time.

TimHagansStent: bacon avocado eggs benedict from borderline cafe

scoobydrew0: One fresh apple fritter from the west side market. Eaither bakery dont care.

AlpacaFight: The gnocchi from trattoria. Or the chicken and waffles sandwich at Melt.

tj111: Fat Heads - I'd get the Killer smokehouse wings and a shit ton of beer.

TPH2[S]: I think I'd pick the fried chicken meal from Hot Sauce Williams

Garth_McKillian: Atomic Dog with fries from ABC.

ThurBurtman: A meatball sub from Dagwoods in Parma, or a Deep Dish with extra sweet sauce from Napoleons.

scottheisel: Currently, I would say the Double Sasquatch at Beer Engine. But tomorrow, it would probably be a large pan crust double pepperoni pizza from Angelo's. But in all reality, if I were really moving away, the very last thing I would eat here would be the Melt Challenge.

darthdeighan: Sunnyside pizza from Bar Cento.

ironicirenic: The machaca taquitos from Momocho. Or Bucci's fettuccine alfredo.
