Last weekend, I drove up to Cleveland to spend some time with Chris and check out where he's been spending his summer. It was blazing hot that weekend so spending time out of doors was limited (although we did get to run in Rocky River). We also checked out a few resturants and neighborhoods while in town, starting with Lolita. Lolita is a Michael Symon (Iron Chef on the Food Network) restaurant and so I was excited to try it. Lolita is located in the Tremont area of Cleveland and is known for being a great urban neighborhood for young professionals.
|We started with bread, really crusty bread.|
|I ordered sides and appetizers, staring with muscles with chorizo (spicy sausage)|
|And duck fat potatoes|
|And Brussel spouts with anchovies and capers|
|Chris ordered Gnocchi with braised lamb|

|The dessert menu...which we were too full to try|
|Interesting fact about our hotel room in Crocker Park, the Olympic torch was a guest!|
Ohio City for their outdoor market and some local beers (and a chance to watch the OSU/Akron game) at Market Garden Brewery.
|Loved the sign behind the bar|
