Wedding Gift - Cleveland


I am looking to treat two newlyweds to a romantic dinner in Cleveland at the best restaurant in town. Nothing cheesy, nothing old, but rather someplace that has a good vibe and is considered to be the "best place in town" if money were no object.

They are both in their 20''s and doctors in residency so they dont get out a lot. This should be a nice treat.

Where should they go? I have never been to Cleveland and do not know anything about the area....

  1. fire food and drink is one of the best restaurants in Cleveland. Another is Bar Cento, but it doesn't really have a "money is no object" vibe in either the food or the atmosphere.

    Bar Cento
    1948 West 25th Street, Cleveland, OH 44113

    1. fire is an excellent choice. Other great choices are Lola, Crop (which will re-open late summer-fall in Ohio City), Dante, Parallax, Fahrenheit, and Chinato. Make the evening even more special with a pre or post dinner drink at the Velvet Tango Room.

      2095 Columbus Rd, Cleveland, OH

      E 4th St, Cleveland, OH

      1. I suggest Chinato, L'Albatross or Table 45. All 3 are owned by one of our best restaurateurs, Zack Bruell. Lola is right up there as well.

        Table 45
        9801 Carnegie Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44106

          Often when multiple restaurants share the same ownership, you can get a gift certificate good at any of them.

          You can also get a "Be My Guest" gift card from American Express, good at any restaurant that accepts their credit card.
