Anthony Bordain in Cleveland
I'm glad Ruhlman took Bourdain to Hot Sauce Williams. I admit I'm occasionally disappointed there but generally I get ribs that I'd be proud to serve to an out of town visitor. I also don't venture too far away from ribs.
I was skeptical of most of the other choices. The article quoted Bourdain saying as much: of course, everyone will have their own personal list of hidden gems. It's just that mine is actually the right one... I saw them at the Shaker Square farmers market. There are a couple restaurants I think they definitely would have enjoyed and I'm sorry I didn't recommend them. Sokolowski's? I always assumed they're coasting on their iconic status. Is the food actually any good?
One visit that did sound intriguing was Angie's. Does anyone know anything about this place?
I'm very glad that Mr. Bordain went to Cleveland - it deserves some credit. So diverse. I'm from there, but left because of the weather. I always site the bad things about it, but the very bright spot is the food. Best homestyle mama/papa Italian to be found at Mama Santa's in Murry Hill. I'm gonna start telling only the good things.
