Of course, we’re already happy because The Plain Dealer has officially named the Bistro to its “A-List” of Cleveland’s top 100 restaurants for the fifth year in a row—and not just any old way, but with a promotion to its new “Cleveland Classics” list, an honor bestowed upon only 20 restaurants in all. That’s wonderful enough, but today more kudos came our way.
The PD‘s weekly “Five for Friday” feature stars a local chef, foodie or other notable Northeast Ohioan providing a list of his or her top five places to find “their favorite indulgences, and the treats they like the most.” Today’s chosen list-maker is Cindy Barber, co-owner-operator of the Beachland Ballroom, one of the city’s most legendary rock venues, located right here in our neighborhood in Collinwood. Where does Cindy go when she’s not busy running the food operations at the Beachland’s tavern or listening to a band in full jam on the stage? “I don’t go very far from my zip code,” she said, and guess which restaurant was amongst her five picks for dining out? You guessed it. Read all about it here.
Thanks, neighbor! Stop by any time!
