good eats in Toledo

Any suggestions for a good dinner spot in the Toledo area? Preferences are local/organic or ethnic (Indian, Thai, Mediterranean, etc)

      I'll second the recommendation for Bangkok Kitchen. It's not that easy to spot from Dussel, either; it's located in a strip mall on the south side of Dussel, right next to (and just west of) a Wendy's. I also like Mancy's Bluewater Grille for seafood. It's on Dussel, right across the street from Bangkok Kitchen. For Indian, I like the Tandoor on Reynolds. All of these places, particularly the Tandoor, are close to Exit 59 from the Ohio Turnpike. The two on Dussel are also close to the Salisbury Road exit from I-475.

      For more recommendations, see the discussion at Most of the recommendations made there are still current, and not that many places have opened since then.

        I agree on Bluewater Grill. Probably my favorite restaurant in the city, definitely the best for seafood. Just curious Nxstasy, have you tried the Jewel for Indian? We have never found the Tandoor to measure up. We love the Jewel. As an aside, you have been a tremendous help on our too infrequent trips to Chicago! I have wondered for a long time if you ever cook. In all seriousness, you are a terrific resource.

          I have not tried the Jewel yet, but I'll keep it in mind for future reference. I really do like the Tandoor, though; their kheer (Indian rice pudding) may be the best I've had.

          And thanks for your kind words!
