Cleveland Restaurant 'Week' Runs Nov. 2-14


It’s that time of year again, diners. For 13 food-filled days, dozens of local, independent restaurants will be offering special three-course prix fixe meals for just $33 (not counting tax and tip), although some restaurants diverge slightly off that price.

The 11th annual Cleveland Restaurant Week runs from November 2 through 14.

“This is the promotion that kicks off holiday dining,” says John McDonnell, Cleveland Independents’ President and Owner of Tartine Bistro. “It gives everyone an opportunity to visit new places and explore a variety of flavors.”

This year 53 member restaurants are participating, the largest tally to date.

Here are just some of the participating restaurants: Bistro 185, Blue Point Grille, Chinato, Don's Lighthouse, Blue Canyon, Fahrenheit, EDWINS, Fire, Flour, Flying Fig, La Dolce Vita, Luxe, Marotta's, Melt, Moxie, Paladar, Pier W, Red, Taste, Thyme, Taste, Toast and Ty Fun.

The offerings range wildly from restaurant to restaurant, but all of them are a great deal — and a great way to sample a new (or new to you) restaurant. Many of the special menus can be viewed online at the Cleveland Independents website.

Book a spot at Cabin Club, for example, and you can enjoy French Onion Soup, Twin Tournedos of Filet Mignon Topped with Sautéed Shrimp and Flourless Chocolate Torte. Stop by Sasa and feast on a Shrimp Tempura and Spicy Tuna Roll, Marinated Sliced Tenderloin Cooked on Hot Ishiyaki Stone, and Green Tea Cookies with Latte. Over at Pier W, diners can enjoy a special three-course meal complete with wine pairings, like Local Squash and Potato Chowder with Oregon Pinot Gris, and Acadian Redfish a la Meniere with an Alsatian Riesling.
