Know how I can tell Cleveland is becoming “cooler”? When a restaurant seats 35-40 people, serves only breakfast, and proclaims on their website that they cannot accommodate groups of more than 6 people on the weekends.
Know how I can tell Cleveland will never be New York? When, despite the crowd, 2 separate workers come up to our large party to assure us a table will be ready soon, instead of acting like we’re somehow intruding by trying to eat at their busy restaurant.
This really is the best of both worlds. Plus, the breakfast banh mi that I ate won “best breakfast sandwich” in America this year. Move over NYC; Cleveland is coming for you. Well, maybe not coming for you, exactly, but it is emulating you, so you should at least be flattered by that.
