 Bistro on the Falls
8134 Columbia Rd., Olmsted Falls

 “Phenomenal food! Loved the Korean style pork belly, especially the tangy slaw and sauce with the pork belly. Cauliflower risotto balls with that sweet and sour tomato sauce - completely not what I expected, and so much better. Deviled eggs with crabmeat - also a winner, and generous roasted garlic mashed potatoes - yum! Such a nice surprise. Took dinner as takeout, but inside looked very inviting as well. Food came out fast and warm, and oh so good. Highly recommend,” Killu S. on Yelp

 Felice
12502 Larchmere Blvd., Cleveland

For the past 14 years, Felice has earned a place as one of the east side’s most endearing restaurants. Originally opened by Margaret Mueller in 2008, the distinctive eatery resides in a beautifully restored Craftsman-style home on Larchmere. Over the years, the property – inside and out – has managed to grow better with age thanks to additions like the carriage-house bar, the artfully landscaped patio and the outdoor kitchen. That chapter of the story ends on December 23rd when Felice will close. The owners have announced a transfer of the property to Jill Vedaa and Jessica Parkison of beloved Lakewood tapas spot Salt+, who will open a new restaurant in spring.

 Rowley Inn 
1104 Rowley Ave., Cleveland

 “Can't believe this was my first time coming here! What an awesome hidden gem in Tremont. Let's start with the best thing on the menu, their bacon wrapped tots. These things are gigantic and covered in strips of bacon before they are deep fried. The bacon soaks into the tots so it gives them amazing succulent flavor while still being crispy on the outside. Seriously whichever chef designed this menu item needs to win a James Beard award. The rest of their food was also great, the burger was cooked to perfection and their other breakfast items including the grilled cheese is also good,” James P. on Yelp
