Select Local Merchants

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.

Few places can offer the same type of dish for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Even fewer can do so while transporting your mind to Paris?but Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes does just that, charming guests and the New York Times with its impressive selection of crepes and its decor. Good Girls' rouge-red walls are decorated with oversized street maps and a Jean-Luc Godard film poster; its crepes are decorated with all manner of sweet and savory fixings.

Each crepe has a name, and true regulars will know just who to order. Vera, for example, contains a mix of bacon, boursin cheese, and spinach, whereas Pascalle holds fig jam and chevre, or goat cheese. Celeste is a little heartier, with roast beef and brie offsetting the tartness of cranberries. Every savory crepe is also available as a salad, or, if you simply unfold it, a very thin pizza.

As for the dessert crepes, they cover mixes of chocolate, fruits, and candies. The Cora hides strawberries and blueberries?a light contrast to the Tynysha's rich Heath bar, ricotta cheese, and chocolate filling. The simplest option, the Seine, delights with its classic flavors of butter and sugar.
