Valentine's Day in CLE


Allstar#1bf originally planned an elaborate menu to cook for Valentine's Day, but now we're pretty sure we want to go out for dinner.

We've been to Lolita a couple of times, and LOVE it, but we're hoping to go somewhere else with a similar price range/casualness/quality. We live out in Lorain County, so anywhere there or CLE would be good.Friends have suggested Momocho, Flour, and L'Albatros, but I've never been to any of those places. Any other suggestions?

Also, Allstar#1bf does not drink, so drink centric places are probably not a good idea (aka not great lakes brew pub, etc).

  1. Flying Fig, Fat Cats, Fahrenheit all good west side options.

    1. I do not recommend L'Albatross, I don't think the atmosphere is at all what you're looking for. Momocho is a good suggestion, as is Flying Fig. But my #1 rec would be for Soho Kitchen & Bar, which recently opened on 25th near Lorain/west side market.

      1. Try Nemo Grille in Avon. They serve a full menu on most all holidays so you don't get short changed and get the full experience on a day like V-day. The food is top quality, the setting is upscale but not fussy in a unique setting.
