One of the great things about spring in Cleveland is finally saying goodbye to the cold harsh winter. Today is the beginning of Restaurant Week which is a delicious way to ring in the new season.
Over 80 independent Cleveland restaurants have gotten together offering a three-course prix fixe for our dining pleasure. Restaurant Week is a great time to try new restaurants or revisit others which are priced a bit too high for frequent dining. Its a wonderful way to support local Cleveland food businesses. Visit http://www.clevelandrestaurantweek.com/ for pricing, website links and menus.
This past February I was fortunate to be in New York City during their Restaurant Week and dined at a few places I had not been to in years. Here are some pictures of two of my favorite standards, 21 and the Russian Tea Room, and a new restaurant on E 21st Street called Gravy which offers classic southern cuisine.
