We tried three times to get into this crowded and popular new restaurant. Each time, an overflow of humans suggested we “try again.” Finally, on trip number four, we were quickly seated, menus were presented and a meal was eminent.
The room is comfortable and fun. A wall of empty beer cans (much like the early 70’s basement of Jeff’s buddy) is arranged so the gang of red aluminum forms a “B” in a sea of white/lighter color containers. Low tables, stool-high tables and an indoor patio of seats stretching into the walkway of Eaton Collection Mall make this more a reception hall than a restaurant. The timbre of the place almost insures an enjoyable time. With such a fun place, it is easy to miss that the “emperor has no pants.”
The assorted Michael Symon restaurants are wonderful places for delightful food. Some believe, the best this city has to offer. Unfortunately, we do not believe this is one of them. The burgers were good, but there are scores of places across America that make killer burgers. The salads were good, but again, more the result of carefully chosen raw ingredients. The great beer selection is in various price ranges from all over America and Europe. Again, this is the byproduct of an educated palette and only the skill of a well drawn draft.
A popular place that makes people happy and adds smiles to faces isn’t all bad. Just don’t expect to go there for the greatest food in Cuyahoga County. For that, check our list and some of the other blog entries.
