1. Spice Kitchen + Bar
A lot of restaurants have latched onto the farm-to-table trend, but not many can claim to have their own farm. Spice Kitchen + Bar, the crown jewel in the Gordon Square arts district dining scene, grows and raises the bulk of its food in the Cuyahoga National Valley Park south of Cleveland. Boasting a red-brick interior that’s classy without being stuffy, Spice surprises and delights with dishes like chicken leg confit, fried lamb shank and a perpetual favorite, mushroom beignets.
