  2. L'Albatros - heard so many good things, but haven't been able to make it there yet!

  3. Greenhouse Tavern. I keep trying to get there, but always seem to end up somewhere else. Oh the misery of having excellent food options in CLE.

  5. Cleveland restaurants are so good, it's tough to choose! I'd have to say L'Albatros, though. I've heard great things about it. Even though it's only a stone's throw from the law school, I still haven't been there yet. Hope I get to try them out at the Silver Spoon Awards Party!

    ReplyDelete
  6. The Greenhouse Tavern b/c of the awesome menu options - especially the pommes frites and chicken wings!

    ReplyDelete
  7. L'Albatros - still haven't made it there yet.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love VegiTerranean but never get there, but I have always wanted to try Flying Fig.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hot Sauce Williams!! Every time I drive by there I always want to stop in, I have heard wonderful things about their food, and friend of ours from Chicago always always go there when they are visiting!!

  10. The Greenhouse!

    I just got back from a B-party in Miami. I stayed up all night. Crazy fun! Can't wait to hear your re-cap.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm embarrassed I've only been to SIX out of those restaurants! I obviously need to win so I can enjoy copious amounts of food.

    For the baby, of course. ;)

    I really want to try Flying Fig - you've raved about it so many times, but I have yet to go there. What's up with that? No bueno.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I mean I live near flying fig and I've never been so that would have to be that for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  13. L'Albatros

    I tasted a little something at Market Under Glass and I can't wait to have more.

    ReplyDelete
  14. VegiTerranean or Greenhouse Tavern :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I absolutely LOVE Parallax, so definitely that one... of the ones that I haven't tried yet, definitely Flying Fig - I've only heard great things about it. I look forward to any and all food though.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Parallax - always, always, Parallax.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would love to try Flying Fig- everyone talks about how good it is! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hot Sauce Williams. My wife hates barbecue, so I don't get it anywhere near as often as I'd like to, and Hot Sauce Williams is one restaurant I haven't tried yet.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Um, who isn't looking forward to Eat'n Park!?

    Seriously though, I've heard many good things about Parallax but haven't been able to try it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Chinato please! Haven't been there yet and have heard many good things. But then there is Parallax... and I've never been there either. (insert sad face and pity party)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Shuhei Japanese Cuisine and Sushi Bar

    ReplyDelete
  22. VegiTerranean sounds cool. Can't wait to try that.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Obvi it is Eat 'n Park for their delicious smiley face cookies. The hell?

    For serious, Corky & Lenny's, because that place always, always, always makes me think of Corky from "Life Goes On" and Lenny of Lenny & Squiggy. So I watched a lot of TV growing up. Sue me. And then PICK ME.

  24. I've read so many good things about Chinato that I'm dying to try the place. Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. I'm gonna go with Paladar since I've got Cinco de Drinko on the brain.

    Can't wait to read the Derby posts!

  26. mm food! i love aladins...

    but i thought this had to do with meeting ricky (now RICK) Schroeder, and alfonso ribero.

    Kind of a let down...but thats ok! I like food too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's probably a sin that I'm a 14+ year vegitarian and haven't made it to VegiTerranean.

    And Ty Fun is always to DIE for.

    Yuuuu-UM!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Excited to try L'Albatros! I've heard great things!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Vegiterranean? Vegetarian food in a Mediterranean setting? I'm all in.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ahhh! This is awesome! :) I am DESPERATE to win!

    OK, so obviously I eat at Aladdin's all the time, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE their food. I would love to try fire food & drink, Great Lakes Brewing Co, The Greenhouse Tavern, Lola (obviously.. who wouldn't??), and I love Saffron Patch. OOOH! I've not yet had VegiTerranean.

    So pretty much all of them. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  31. Saffron Patch for sure, I've been craving GOOD Indian for awhile, but there isn't anywhere good out here where I live.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would love to try Table 45 again. My first experience consisted of a strange gentleman coughing up red wine on the back of my dress. I was sticky and had to go home. Now, all I want to do is actually eat and avoid red wine hurricanes. xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  33. been dying to check out chinato!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Greenhouse Tavern!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yo Plum-

    We vote Greenhouse Tavern or Red.

    Crossing our fingers cause it would be groovy to go-

    Muncha muncha

  36. So many good ones!

    I'd have to say Saffron Patch, simply because at a past job, I had the great luxury of planning the office Xmas party, which included ordering all of the food and running around town picking up all of the requests. Saffron was on the list, and it looked/ smelled so good, but I had to run out to one more stop and by the time I got back, there was nothing left from there for me to try. Torture.

  37. L'Albatros - It's such a gem of the east side!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hot Sauce Williams! A Cleveland staple, and I've never been there!

    Here's to thinking about BBQ and the summer...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ty Fun - i keep trying to go but its always when i find myself in Tremont unexpectedly and i can never get a table!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The Greenhouse Tavern or Chinato, since I have nto made it to either yet - but all of them are amazing options so it was hard to pick! (Yay for not having to at the event) :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Parallax!

  42. I'd love to try Chinato! This sounds like a great time :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. GAHHHH!
    So many to try! I think I will choose Hot Sauce Williams for two reasons:
    1. Soul food=awesome
    2. It gives me more reason to sing "Hot Sauce in My Bag."
    :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. all of course because the only thing I like to do more than make people uncomfortable is eat.

    but probably Chinato because we've been meaning to get over to it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hot Sauce for sure! Never been and everyone talks about it!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Paladar Latin Kitchen, this is a fact.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hands down VegiTerranean. Akron really lucked out and Cleveland wants some veggie love!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Parallax! I've heard so many good things about he restaurant and have not had the chance to try it out myself yet!

    ReplyDelete
  49. VegiTerranean! VegiTerranean!VegiTerranean! I would love to try VegiTerranean as well as many many others!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Greenhouse Tavern; have heard nothing but great things about it.

    ReplyDelete
  51. chinato. it would be a great way to spend my birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Pier W!!! Love it there

    @chrisdujour

    ReplyDelete
  53. Definitely Greenhouse Tavern. It is so hard to get my husband to go outside of his usual spots and I have heard such great things about Greenhouse Tavern. I know if I could get him there just once he would be hooked and be more apt to try new places.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'd like to try Red or Sans Souci, because these are the places I'm least likely to end up going to on my own since they're fancy/expensive.

    I've tried a bunch of the more 'accessible' places on the list and love em'.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I guess it didn't take the comment I left before - argh! my choice would be Chinato! And the event sounds great!!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. excited about red- went there a few weeks ago, hands down the best steak in cleveland!
