Look no further for Cleveland’s best Salad and Slice….
For $5.50, this vegetable/grease duo is available in the heart of Tremont at Edison’s Pub….
Not even authentic Chicago deep dish slices fill me up like this combo does…. and when I really want to push my buttons.. (my pant buttons) I top off my meal with some free popcorn dessert …
Added bonus for the outdoor patio…. hard to pass this up when looking for casual/cheap/delicious summer fare…
*Sorry lunchers… kitchen doesn’t open till 4:00 p.m.
Finally…. achievement of the Triple Crown….
Though I’d dined at Michael Symon’s Lola and B Spot, I hadn’t had the opportunity to hit up Lolita. (I know… I know… how can I call myself a Clevelander……)
Nick’s 32nd birthday was the perfect opportunity to give it a go (and to let go of any residual guilt I’d have for spending lots of money on a meal…)
It was my perception that Lolita and I already had a lot in common - both femme fatales serving as middle sisters…..less formal than one (Lola / Kristen) but a lot classier than the other (B Spot / Brian).
My expectations were on par… What wasn’t was the fact that we’d be able to 1) Get a table bar-side 2) Eat entirely from the Happy Hour Menu 3) Spend a mere $36 dining at one of Cleveland’s largest hot spots.
Though I was more than willing to open my wallet so Nick could score a meal, both our stomachs were totally full from the following: ..
I vote the Eggplant Dip as the front runner but the Mussels slide in at close second. Surprisingly, this meat lover was not a fan of the burger. (English Muffin bun and fried egg were just too much for me) That being said, Nick was a giant, giant fan…. Touche….
*Weekday and late night Happy Hour offerings…
*Well worth the visit!
Girls Book Club Brunch at Tremont’s new Press Wine Bar…. We may not all have agreed on “Extremely Loud and Extremely Close” but it sure was hard to disagree with the mimosa bar and accompanying food spread….
Though I rarely drop $18 on breakfast, $8 for a Pear Mimosa and $10 for a Mexi Scramble is pretty reasonable for any Tremont dining spot.
Highly recommended spot to take those visiting out of towners or those die-hard Bob Evan’s Loving parents from Warren…..
*Saturday & Sunday Brunch from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Video from today’s Cupid Undie Run where Hundreds of Local Clevelander’s braved the cold (20 some degrees today) and raced around the streets of Tremont in their skivvies in order to raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation……
Churned, Cleveland’s newest Ice Cream shop, is far from vanilla. Located in the heart of Tremont, these handmade ice cream flavors parallel the unique offerings available at the Columbus based phenomenon known as Jeni’s…
Though the scoops are small the taste is big, and the ability to sample away before opting for your favorites is an added bonus….
Best bet…Spend an extra dollar, take a friend and split the large…A variety of deliciousness will await you….
During my most recent visit, I was told that the peanut butter and jelly with toasted Brioche was a top seller… and though it was good…. my taste buds continue to lean toward the carrot with cream cheese ice cream and pecan coconut swirl…. So good…..
Sunday nights Arts in August event (Free arts programming in Tremont’s Lincoln Park) brought in performers from GroundWorks Dance Theater. Though I was late getting there, I did make it for the final dance set Hindsight.. Per the Arts in August pamphlet, Hindsight was created in homage to rock legend and Northeast Ohio native Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.”
A gorgeous evening in the park with beautiful dancing and Chrissie Hynde blaring.. talk about a great evening!
