Start making reservations. Cleveland Restaurant Week has officially kicked-off and runs through Saturday, Nov. 14.
Translation: You’ll find three-course fixed-price meal deals at most of Northeast Ohio’s best restaurants.
For $33 per person (exclusive of tax and tip) you can dine at splashy spots. This year they’ll include all of Zack Bruell’s fine dining establishments (Alley Cat, Chinato, Cowell & Hubbard, L’Albatros, Parallax and Table 45)… Don’s Pomeroy House and Don’s Lighthouse… popular Hospitality Restaurants group destinations such as Delmonico’s, Salmon Dave’s, Cabin Club and Blue Point Grille… and chef Doug Katz properties, including Fire Food & Drink andProvenance at Cleveland Museum of Art.
Those are just a few. In all, more than 50 Cleveland area eateries, from casual to fine dining, will offer special menus geared to the annual promotion.
If you’re a “collector” who aims to eat at the region’s most-noted restaurants, Restaurant Week is a prime opportunity. The custom menus may not feature the dishes for which top area chefs are best known, but they’re a sampling of specialties and imaginative creations.
Note that prices for the two-week promotion may vary by restaurant. (At Creekside Restaurant in Brecksville, for instance, the price for three courses is $25 per person.) Follow the clickable links to each individual spot’s website to scope out complete menus and prices.
Some restaurants have a single three-course set menu option. That’s the case at Marotta’s in Cleveland Heights, Oak Grove Eatery in Wooster, and Cha Spirits & Pizza Kitchen in Cleveland’s Battery Park area.
Some offers are very flexible. At Bac Asian American Bistro & Bar in Tremont, for example, the $33 offer includes your choice of any soup or salad on the menu, along with any appetizer, any entree, and your choice of dessert or an alcoholic beverage.
At Flying Fig in Ohio City you can choose from entrees such as a Grilled Faroe Island Salmon Salad Nicoise; Killibuck Valley mushroom risotto stuffed into acorn squash, or Tea Hills Farm pan-roasted chicken thighs — plus several appetizer and dessert options.
Unless specifically noted, alcohol and other beverages are not included among the Restaurant Week offerings. Visit the clevelandindependents.com website for more information and all participating 2015 restaurants.
