French Restaurants in Tremont

Select Local Merchants

At Bistro on Lincoln Park, executive chef Pete Joyce employs formal education and experience to combine French, Italian, and Spanish highlights into refined cuisine that utilizes local and seasonal ingredients whenever possible. Impatient palates delve into the Ohio goat-cheese tasting, which pairs Lake Erie Creamery goat-milk cheeses with herbed flatbread, accouterments, and a pristine plate ($15). Slowly braised shanks of Colorado lamb tie together a dish of potato purée, black-olive oil, mint, and a basil reduction sauce ($19), and pheasant kiev tempts diners' decorum with a foie-gras- and parsley-butter-stuffed breast enshrined by a cauliflower purée and truffled petite green salad ($19). Post main-plate consumption, tongues can twist sweetly around house-made ice cream made with organic Ohio cream ($5) or pound cake, which whisks together almond cake, nougat sauce, hazelnut-honey buttercream, candied pistachios, and candied lemon zest into 1.814 kilograms of metric joy ($7).

Housed in the former Taylor and Sons Department Store–a historic building that has tastefully transformed its 4,000 sq. ft. into a chic interior and exterior space–Zinc Bistro is a sophisticated eatery that serves prime steaks, French classics, and raw from one of Cleveland's only raw bars. The seasonal lunch menu is a tuxedo-worthy medley of soups, oysters, savory sandwiches, frites, and salads. For dinner, taste buds can take aim at duck a l'orange with butternut-bacon hash ($28) or a pork chop with choucroute, rutabaga puree, and apple-bourbon ($24). Ishmaels can reacquaint themselves with the eats of the oceans by noshing six fresh oysters ($12–$14), a bowl of lobster bisque ($11), or moules frites ($17) stacked with Prince Edward Island mussels, Pernod, and Zinc frites.
