3 March, 2019 | Latin | By: Mrs Z

Since this was Mr. Z’s night to choose a restaurant, I was surprised and thrilled to find that he had chosen someplace a little outside of his comfort zone!  Barroco is a very cool Latin American bar/bistro/café serving a really wide variety of dishes.  I think their main feature though, would be their Arepas.  If […]

Texas de Brazil

15 September, 2016 | Brazilian | By: Mrs Z

Though we had been to Brasa Grill in downtown Cleveland, it was many years ago and our recollection is poor as to whether we liked it; but nevertheless, since Texas de Brazil was new to Crocker Park, we thought we’d give it a try. We were really impressed with how beautiful it was inside and […]

Yard House

3 December, 2015 | Bistro, Sports Bar, Traditional / American | By: Mrs Z

Having heard that Yard House was “coming soon” and then being told that we “absolutely HAD to try it”, we did!  Very cool place, but if you’re looking for an intimate, quiet place to carry on conversation; this is NOT the place!  Also, if you’re a first-timer, you should allow at least 15 minutes to […]

Mezza Mediterranean Cuisine

9 September, 2015 | Mediterranean | By: Mrs Z

We weren’t too sure what to expect of Mezza, so it really didn’t disappoint except for the fact that they have no liquor license, but given the type of place it is; we really shouldn’t have expected it (hopeful maybe, but not really a disappointment).  Mezza is located in a little strip center on Center […]

Felix & Oscar’s Pub

18 August, 2015 | Sports Bar | By: Mrs Z

I’m ashamed that it has taken me a full week to get this posted; particularly since we were very anxious to share it with everyone!  The gigantic space at the corner of Clague and Detroit Roads, formerly occupied by Panini’s (and M Bistro before that, and originally the legendary Panorama) is now Felix and Oscar’s […]


21 January, 2015 | Hungarian | By: Mrs Z

This very authentic Hungarian restaurant is located on the ground floor of an office building that was formerly occupied by Viva Barcelona / Viva Fernando.  According to the owner (Joe); he has completely renovated it from top to bottom and though it really wasn’t much in terms of atmosphere (a bit on the dark side); […]

Stella Mia Ristorante

7 January, 2015 | Italian | By: Mrs Z

WOW….what a great find this place was!  Formerly Panos (which we had enjoyed; mainly for breakfast); Stella Mia is the epitome of an Italian, fine dining, ristorante; yet the $$ weren’t that much more than you’d expect to shell out at your local little family-owned neighborhood Italian place.  The menu was gigantic, with everything that […]

Cafe Tandoor

21 August, 2014 | Indian | By: Mrs Z

While this may not have been the BEST Indian cuisine I’ve ever had, the experience was monumental.  Let me explain – Of all the different ethnic foods that are out there, Indian was always one that Mr. Z swore he didn’t like.  There was a certain “taste” (seasoning) in almost every dish that he simply […]

SB Eighty-One

18 March, 2014 | Bistro | By: Mrs Z

Quite a bit different than we remembered from it’s days as Saucy Bistro!  They’ve done some extensive remodeling inside and we couldn’t figure out if it is smaller or larger, but definitely different.  With the exception of a Kiwanis club meeting in the back room, there was only one other couple there besides us, which […]

AJ’s Urban Grill

19 December, 2013 | Bistro, sandwiches / soups / salads, Traditional / American | By: Mrs Z

What a cool little place this was and very surprising that it wasn’t brand new since we had never been there before.  We’ve been over in this area many times and never noticed it, but the fact that it’s set back in a little non-descript strip center might be the reason for that.  In any […]
