Cleveland is huge in Canada. At least, a little more so now that Scene Dining Editor Douglas Trattner penned a glowing travel feature about our fair city for the Globe & Mail, Canada's national paper.
In it, Trattner dishes on everything from bike-friendly infrastructure to sustainability minded chick-and-bees legislation. But mostly he dishes on the food and drink. Hotspots like Happy Dog and Lolita are in there as is Momocho and Society Lounge.
Better still is the Ohio City pub crawl that guides tipsy Canadians from Great Lakes Brewing to tiny Nano Brew:
When Great Lakes Brewing Co. launched in 1988, it was the sole craft brewery in the state let alone the neighbourhood. Now there are three microbreweries in Ohio City with more on the way. Start with a pint in Great Lakes’ historic Taproom (2516 Market Ave., 216-771-4404, www.greatlakesbrewing.com), which carries non-distributed varieties. Cross the street to the new Market Garden Brewery (1947 W. 25th St., 216-621-4000, marketgardenbrewery.com), where a full line-up of craft drafts are enjoyed in an open-air beer garden. Just down the block, the pint-size Nano Brew (1859 W. 25th St., 216-862-6631, nanobrewcleveland.com) brews up excellent ales in a tiny one-barrel system, on view in the main room.
