Late Night Cleveland on a Thursday?

  • 7

Hello Hounds!
My wife and I are 2 NYC hounds coming to OH for our college reunion and we are scheduled to land at 10PM. We'll be staying downtown. Are there any options? We like all cuisines and are especially interested in places using local ingredients. I realize we may be getting in too late for a weeknight (Thursday) but wanted to get your advice. Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. I think AMP 150 serves their entire menu until quite late (but please confirm). I've had some very good food at AMP 150. They're very ambitious - make their own corned beef, sauerkraut, etc... They also use a lot of local ingredients. It isn't downtown but it's one of the restaurants I keep in mind when I fly in late. It's convenient because it's near the airport. It's actually in the airport Marriott. Everyone who goes there feels compelled to say that they would never eat at a hotel restaurant, let alone an airport hotel restaurant, but AMP 150 is the exception. They just got a very positive write-up in the local free weekly: http://www.clevescene.com/cleveland/b...

    I recommend the mussels.

    My other post flight favorite is Bar Cento. They're serious about using local products. They may be serving a limited menu at that hour, but that limited menu will include their awesome fries. I hear good things about their new duck confit pizza which will also be available until 2:30am.

    One of the hottest new things in Cleveland is a peripatetic gourmet food truck:Dim And Den Sum. "Local, gourmet soul food with an Asian twist" is how they describe themselves. I've had several of their menu items. I recommend the tater tots, any of the sliders, the chick-wich... The menu changes frequently, so some of those items may not be available. (Disclaimer: I occasionally pitch in voluntarily to help promote the truck.) The chefs hail from Spotted Pig and fire food and drink, one of Cleveland's best restaurants. If "thursday" means this coming Thursday, the 27th, then they plan to be out on the streets serving the people. That night they'll be outside of The Happy Dog. That's about 3 miles West of Downtown; 10 minutes, tops.

      Wow these all sounds great! The truck sounds really intriguing. Do people usually stand and eat or sit on the curb?

      Thanks again.

        Jeremy - depends on the locale, I think. My experiences with Dim and Dem Sum were at an office building that had a few picnic tables outside, so that's where we ate.

          Thank you all! So our flight was canceled on Thursday because of the odd wind storms in NYC so we rented a car and drove. Unfortunately, we arrived after 3AM and couldn't really eat anywhere.

          Here's the weird part though: Our second night at our reunion, one of my friends said there was a 'local food truck' near campus that I might like. Sure enough, the Dim and Den Sum truck was parked in the tiny town I went to college in. I started to follow them on Twitter and we then realized they were staying for another night. Two meals was definitely not enough as there was hardly anything on their menu that didn't look great. I ended up with a lamb shank taco one night and my wife and I shared the burger and pork sandwich the next night. Wow. Great food and really nice guys as well.
          Thank you all for your help! What a nice weekend!

        AMP 150 is an amazing place with creative small plate cuisine, wonderful service, large specialty beer menu, and great selection of wines by the glass. I was there tonight, and I am going back tomorrow night to try more of their spectacular food.

      3. I also recommend Bar Cento which is about 5 min cab or drive from Downtown. You may also want to check Greenhouse Tavern-call and see how late they are serving. they are located downtown and depending on where you are staying you could walk.
        http://www.thegreenhousetavern.com/. they use a lot of local ingredients as well
