Residents of Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood will be pleased to know that Great Lakes Brewing Co.—one of the main reasons behind its recent revival—is welcoming patrons back to its beer garden and outdoor patio. While favorite brews may be limited, for the time being, the brewpub’s casual fine dining menu is back for everyone’s enjoyment.
16 North Main St., Chagrin Falls
Located in Chagrin Falls, Aurelia is an American-style bistro committed to sourcing only the finest ingredients from local farms, fisheries, and suppliers. Their masterfully crafted dishes are always fresh, and their tailored menu regularly rotates depending on what is available during the season, the week, the day, and occasionally during service.
At the helm of the restaurant is classically trained Chef James Balchak, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, an institution that emphasizes the quality of ingredients and technique.
- Lindey’s Lake House
Owned by Rick Doody, who contributed best practices to guide the reopening of Ohio’s eateries, this restaurant chain offers exceptional farm-to-table dining experiences.

The restaurant’s Downtown Cleveland and Lakewood locations add picturesque views of Lake Erie to your unforgettable dining experience.
A quick final note: remember to call in advance before heading over to any restaurant or eatery. Service hours at these establishments may still be subject to change due to the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation. Safety first!
