Deagan’s Kitchen & Bar

Saturday was a beautiful day and despite the relative low quality of goods at this year’s art festivals, we decided that one more couldn’t hurt and the walk would be enjoyable. On the way there, the issue of lunch/dinner came up, as it so often does. We cruised past La Boca Barrio (the former RoseAngel and Boca) but they were closed until 5:00, so another place would have to do. As we got closer to the festival, Jeff remembered that Deagan’s was named the Best New Restaurant by Cleveland Magazine. We decided to try, even though throngs were in attendance. When we entered, a large amount of people were waiting. Expecting the worse, we asked, “How long for a table?” Surprisingly, a two-seat table had just opened up and all of the other people were waiting for larger accommodations, so we were seated in a flash.

The menu looks nice. Divided into bar snacks, big and small plated with sandwiches and traditional dinners, it looked like there was something for everyone. We both decided on the lunch specials. Michele tried the roasted Opah (Hawaiian Moonfish) with couscous. She loved it and wanted more. Jeff had the less successful Beef Quesadilla with spicy fries. Both of us wanted an appetizer that was sold-out (likely due to the huge art festival crowd.) The cold avocado soup sounded as good as the goat cheese deviled eggs. Hopefully next time. For dessert, we shared the key lime torte, with a beautiful collection of fresh berries and mango coulis. It was great.

Because the menu and tap beer list was so interesting, we are likely to return. Do we agree with Cleveland Magazine? We think this one was a bit of a stretch, but our minds remain open. Many restaurants grow into greatness and the bones are here to do so. 14810 Detroit Road Lakewood, OH 44107 216-767-5775
