Jonathon Sawyer

It takes stones to do the kind of cooking Jonathon Sawyer (right) does at the Greenhouse Tavern. Most diners quickly settle into a routine at restaurants, gravitating toward a handful of favorites and rarely venturing on. Those folks are screwed at Greenhouse. Here, the only constant is change. Consumed by an intense form of culinary AD/HD, Sawyer shuffles the menu more often than a Vegas blackjack dealer. Much of this is done to make use of the season's freshest and finest, of course. But the truth is, Sawyer never leaves well enough alone, and adventurous diners are rewarded with some of Cleveland's most satisfying and delicious food. (2038 E. Fourth St., 216.393.4302, — Trattner
