Jaja
2050 Gehring Ave., Cleveland

Before opening Jaja, Intro, the new nine-story apartment complex across the street from the West Side Market, already had unveiled Edda Coffee Roasters, the all-day café, Pioneer, the wood-fired sports bar, and Truss, the rooftop event space. They then opened Jaja in October, which is described by president of hospitality Dan Whalen as a sexy shared-plate steakhouse with Latin American and Mediterranean influences. When guests exit the elevator on the second level, they will be immersed in a drama-filled space that was designed to foster a fun, casual, free-spirited vibe. Jaja may be the most impeccably designed restaurant in town, looking like a restaurant straight out of Architectural Digest.
