Lola Bistro

img_3917Ok, just one more quick, cold-weather Cleveland bite before I move onto Napa and San Francisco, where we filled up on great wine, killer coffee, housemade English muffins and biodynamic vegetables (who are we kidding, it took a pit stop at Northern California drive-in style burger joint, Taylor’s Refresher to properly fill up). But before we get to that, Iron Chef Michael Symon’s Lola restaurant in the Tremont area may be one of Cleveland’s best, with a hearty seasonal menu that includes a beef cheek pierogi with wild mushrooms and horseradish crème fraîche that’s worth making the trip out again. The dimly lit dining room was full of great energy, especially at the open kitchen where diners can belly up to a glowing onyx bar. 2058 E. 4th Street, Cleveland, Ohio, 216.621.5652
