Crispy on the outside, soft and sumptuous on the inside, the falafel at Kantina is the best I have ever had. Despite never having eaten kosher I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and would willingly eat my meat without cheese all the time if everywhere cooked it as well as Kantina. Located in the Albert...

Uptown has expanded to include Chapati Indian Grill, which has recently opened right next to Jimmy John’s and Inchin’s Bamboo Garden Express (another new restaurant). It is set up just like Chipotle, but luckily without the line out of the door. You get the option of either a wrap or a bowl,...

August 27, 2015

Crunch. The hard taco shell crumbled in my mouth quickly followed by the infusion of flavor from various meats, spices and vegetables. It was not the best taco I ever had, but it came pretty close. You know a taco is great when the delicious taste stays with you after you’ve finished, and I was tasting...

My parents always spoke fondly of the Flats. When they were roughly my age, they met at the flagship restaurant and bar, Fagan’s, which had a large blue neon above its entrance and gently reflected on the Cuyahoga River. Mom and Dad would proudly take me there as a child and show me the exact spot...
