What to Eat in Cleveland

Foodies will delight in this city's offerings because Clevelanders sure love their food. Beyond the various breweries, wineries and food tours, the city is home to an array of top chefs and restaurants. Whether you're looking for fine dining, a hole-in-the-wall bar or a trendy club and restaurant, Cleveland has it all. Cleveland is known as an all-American city and, by default, serves up some of the best all-American classic cuisine, infused with a gastronomical twist. After grabbing a sandwich at long-time local favorite, Sylman's Deli, stop by Sweet Moses for homemade ice cream, pies, cookies and cake. But if you're looking for something a bit trendier and upbeat, head to Fire or Lola Bistro, both restaurants where you can indulge in the latest and greatest culinary fads.

If you're craving something more diverse, fear not: Cleveland has a large European population, which contributes to its wealth of eateries serving up international cuisine. Momocho offers classic Mexican dishes with a modern spin, while L'Abatros Brasserie serves French fare and features an extensive wine list. And we don't forget the city's famous Little Italy, with restaurants that almost make you forget you're in Cleveland and not somewhere in Italia. Presti's Bakery, Mia Bella and Flour are all known for serving delicious classic Italian dishes.
