There's a bit of a renaissance going on in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. What was once an economically depressed, down-on-its-luck city has been replaced by growth, new restaurants and cafes, downtown revitalization and a hopping new brewery and distillery district. Cleveland's native boy of Drew Carey really said it best: Cleveland DOES rock!

Spice Kitchen + Bar is in the right place at the right time. Focusing on using local ingredients as much as possible, supporting local farms and suppliers. The restaurant even has a small farm space of its own. The cocktails are well crafted and...

Cleveland’s new jewel shimmers and reflects the neighborhood. Katharina Grosse is the first artist to get to use the atrium as her canvas, spraying it with purple, orange, and yellow acrylic paints. This appeared in the March/April 2013 issue.

Market Garden Brewery, a relatively new brewery, is right next to Cleveland's historic West Side Market and just two blocks away from the famous Great Lakes Brewery (If you're not familiar, you should be). Serving up great brews that rotate...

Melt Bar & Grilled is the sort of place you go when you want to spoil, stuff, and gorge yourself. Case in point - the monstrous behemoth you see before you. I'm not going to lie to you; this monstrosity was every bit as delicious as it looks. This...

The Cleveland Museum of Art recently opened its new Atrium, connecting the original 1916 building with the new Rafael Viñoly-designed addition that effectively doubled the museum's size. Standing under the 66' high glass-and-mullion atrium roof,...

Dinner in the Dark is all about the element of surprise. Where in Cleveland they need to go is the only information guests will be allowed from when they buy their ticket to the moment they finally sit down and drape a napkin across their lap....

Opened in spring 2010 by a couple of Oberlin College grads who decided to stick around, Slow Train Cafe was an instant success. After all, the idea of no decent coffee joint in a small college town is hard to wrap your mind around, especially when...

Cleveland sports fans have been going through a bit of a rough patch the last few decades. No Cleveland sports team has won a championship since 1964 and all the years since, well, they've been a bit painful. At least we have super nice stadiums...

There's a lot to love about Cleveland, though I'll admit I was a little shocked that there could be at first. I mean, it's Cleveland, right? LeBron is gone, Drew Carrey doesn't hang out there anymore, and the Indians haven't been relevant since...

Many locals believe that no trip to Janpath is complete without a visit to DePaul's. The hazelnut-flavored cold coffee is served in a glass bottle with a straw. Nothing fancy, but delightfully refreshing and creamy—especially during hot summers....
