Bar Cento offers creative European-inspired dishes focused on fresh, sustainable ingredients sourced from local farms. The restaurant features a sophisticated yet comfortable dining area, with haute-bucolic décor and a bar area made from reclaimed wood.

Diners at Bar Cento can enjoy an award-winning seasonal menu complimented by an impressive wine list. For pizza lovers, this restaurant is a fantastic choice – it was recently featured in the Food Network for having the “best pizzas in Ohio.”

If you’re craving for authentic Mexican cuisine, Bakersfield is the definitely the place to be. Their tacos are available in nearly a dozen varieties, and are served with made-fresh-daily guacamole. The restaurant also boasts a selection of over a hundred tequilas and whiskeys.

The restaurant was named after Bakersfield Sound, a music genre which originated in California during the 1950s. The restaurant’s interiors are inspired by this popular movement, creating an upbeat vibe for diners.

The Black Pig

2801 Bridge St.
(216) 862-7551

The Black Pig is a hot spot for culinary creativity revolving around a passion for pork – you’ll find dishes like pork rinds with parmesan, boudin blanc with English peas, heritage chops with fiddlehead ferns and baby turnips, and more.

While the restaurant is all about pork dishes, it would be a mistake to overlook their other delicious offerings. Diners can enjoy a seasonal menu consisting of fish, pasta, poultry, and vegetables which reflect the different seasons. If all you’re looking for is a nice, tasty burger, they have that as well – the Black Pig Burger is heaven in a bun, with its juicy patty topped with brie, aioli, mushroom duxelles, and shallot jam.

TownHall’s entire menu (including beverages) is 100% non-GMO. Their dishes are packed with veggies, healthy proteins, nuts, and organic fruits, and are best enjoyed with their wide range of smoothies and fresh pressed juices. This is a restaurant that doesn’t just focus on delicious, fresh food and drinks, however – part of their mission is to educate the public about the benefits of going on a non-GMO diet.

Some of the best dishes to try at TownHall are their wild mushroom chimichangas, General Tso’s tofu bowl, wild tuna poke, grass-fed Kobe cheeseburger, and Korean BBQ pizza.
