If the Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop looks a bit old-fashioned, that's because it is. The building was built in 1875 as a showroom for flour milled by the adjacent waterfalls. But somewhere along the way, it also began selling popcorn, and in the 1940s, the store transformed into a popcorn shop. Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop sells crispy popcorn in fun flavors such as Double Cheese, Kettle Corn, and Caramel Corn, as well as cranberry-flavored Chrissy Corn, proceeds from which go to benefit the cancer charity The Gathering Place. The shop can even bring its popcorn on the road, setting up stands at local festivals and special events to pop it fresh. In addition to its namesake snack, Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop also serves organic, fair-trade, locally roasted Dewey's coffee, along with Euclid Beach Custard and ice cream. Its ice-cream fans are known as Conelickers, and the shop also counts President George W. Bush as an admirer; who bought a tin while campaigning in 2004.
Early every morning, the chefs of Joey’s Restaurant peruse Cleveland’s markets for the freshest vegetables and meats to incorporate into marinara-oozing lasagna, sherry-sautéed scampi, or Sicilian-style pizza. Chefs adhere to authentic family recipes that have been in use for more than 30 years, starting with fresh batches of homemade noodles that soak in sauces such as marinara, alfredo, or garlic butter. Servers set down dishes on red-checkered tables, organizing the plates family-style so each guest can sample and share dishes without having to compete for bites in a fierce game of musical chairs, and the exposed brick in the dining room adds a romantic air to a night on the town.
When The Plain Dealer visited West End Bistro in 2009, it praised the eatery's "inventive culinary thinking" and "really good food." These days, chef Craig Fitzgerald continues the tradition by crafting seasonal, upscale dishes from local and regional ingredients. Options range from prosciutto-wrapped salmon and beef wellington to pizzas crowned with fixings such as garlic chips and woodland mushrooms. Said feasts unfold inside what the Dealer calls an "impeccably designed lofted dining room." Downstairs, bartenders serve wines and beers, as well as mix cocktails such as the cool cucumber, a blend of simple syrup and house-infused cucumber vodka.
Mazzulo's proffers enough custom-cut meat, gourmet cheese, and prepared meals to satisfy a whole horde of hungry family members. The shop's traditional sweet italian sausage recipes date back to Sicily of the early 1900s ($3.99 per pound), and other fresh meat options include beef, pork, chicken, and seafood. A spectrum of just-baked breads embrace specially sliced turkey and roast beef with hugs that range in flavor from rye to wheat and italian ($8.99 per pound), while Mazzulo's signature hand-forged pepperoni bread makes it easier to smuggle your favorite meat into a bread-only food club ($4.99 per pound).
Under the guidance of chef Matthew Anderson, whose cooking has been spotlighted on WKYC, Umami serves a contemporary pan-Asian menu that changes with the seasons. Locally sourced vegetables, tofu, meats, and goat's-milk products are at the core of Umami’s innovative Japanese cuisine, working in harmony with imported, never-frozen seafood to earn praise in publications such as Cleveland Scene and Cleveland.com’s A-list.
Diners enjoy their small and large plates beneath delicate pendant lights that softly illuminate the romantic setting decorated with floral artwork and bamboo shoots. Umami offers a small list of wines, beers, and sakes that harmonize with meals, as well as tasty cocktails such as the Lotus with lychee and ginger.
