Cleveland Dining -

Cleveland is host to a wide variety of restaurants and is culinary much more diverse than an outsider might suspect drawing on large enclaves of ethnic neighborhoods and immigration (Ohio City, Slavic Village, Parma, Hough, Little Italy and others). Certainly, Eastern European food and Soul food are big in a city where Hungarians, Slavs, Poles, Czechs, Bohemians and Southern African Americans were drawn to the steel industry at the end of the 19th century; however recent émigrés have spiced up the mix, adding many more influences including Indian, Chinese, Puerto Rican and Central American, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean.

In the mid-1990s Cleveland was in step with the resurgence of the restaurant industry, and has many restaurants on-par with their larger-city counterparts, many of which are located in the Historic Warehouse District, Ohio City, Tremont, and the Gateway Neighborhood.

Today's Cleveland is not your Grandfather's sausage and perogie steel town.
