 Butcher and the Brewer
    2043 East Fourth St., Cleveland 
    
     This East Fourth spot brews their own beer, has a lively atmosphere, and a butcher shop where delicious sandwiches are made to order. Their meats, which are aged and cured in-house are fantastic and their house smoked corn dogs coated in buttermilk batter were featured on the program. So was their Stop-Hop-Kaboom IPA.

 Parkview Nite Club
    1261 West 58th St., Cleveland 
    
     Layers of mystery lie just beneath the surface of this rustic, aggressively unpretentious corner bar on Cleveland's near West Side. Start with the decorative motif: How can the Rat Pack poster mingle with the framed Three Stooges photo? If this is the Parkview, where is the park -- or the view? How can a bar tout its live blues bands, even as it advertises the birthday of a regular patron named "Disco Dicky"? Most of all, how has a bar with wood paneling on walls, floor, and ceiling managed to keep from burning down this long? These are matters that require intense study from the barstool and a thorough interrogation of the help.

 Le Petit Triangle
    1881 Fulton Ave., Cleveland 
    
     A little cramped, occasionally noisy, and quite possibly the city's smallest restaurant, this tiny French bistro still manages to provide a romantic atmosphere while turning out superlative crepes, earthy pâtés, and one of the best Croque Monsieur sandwiches this side of the Seine.
