EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute
Fine food with a fine mission
A short drive from downtown Cleveland, there's a romantic French restaurant with a long name and a good backstory. You won't find an Edwin in the kitchen, it's short for education wins. What you will find in the kitchen is hope and a second chance: all of the restaurant staff are formerly incarcerated men and women who are working to re-enter society and train in the hospitality industry. On the menu, you'll find classic and ambitious French dishes like pressed duck and soufflés, as well as a selection of vegan plates and even a burger prepared tableside. The food and atmosphere alone make it a special meal, the cause makes it even more memorable.
