Our Ohio Trip

We had the occasion to go to Ohio to see a fantastic band Red Sun Rising. So in keeping with who we are we incorporated a food trip.

So our first stop after the long drive is Melt Bar and Grilled, seen on Man vs Food and The Best Thing I Ever Ate.
We had heard there there is usually a wait so we got there right before they opened so we did not have to wait at all.
The Godfather: 3 cheese lasagna, fresh fennel-oregano pasta sheets, spicy red sauce, provolone, garlic spiked bread.

The Dude Abides: homemade meatballs, fried mozzarella cheese sticks, rich marinara, provolone & romano cheeses.
This is the Vegetarian version ofMom’s Meatloaf Melt: A huge slab of homemade meatloaf smothered in a chipotle ketchup glaze with roasted garlic mashed redskin potatoes and muenster cheese.

Then we went to West Side Market, to look around and walk off the Melts, so we can eat more.

This is an awesome market! Very big and lots of interesting items.
Lots of people.
All kinds of breads,
and pastries,
fresh sea food, and meats.
A gyro from Steve's Gyros. The guys said it was the best gyro they have had.
 A lot of wonderful desserts.

The ceiling is very cool.  This is a must stop if you go to Cleveland!

Then we went to B Spot a Michael Symon restaurant.

Excellent Rosemary Fries.
Some of the best Onion Rings we have had!
Red Hot burger with pulled pork, pickled tomato, hot peppers, Pepperjack cheese, Sriracha mayo.
Bruben- a Ruben sandwich on a burger- Corned beef, Sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Russian Dressing.
inside the Bruben.
The Chick Magnet- a crispy chicken breast with avocado, arugula, tomato and mayo.
The cool art on the wall made from beer cans.

Then we went to the RED SUN RISING concert.
The show totally ROCKED!

Just had to add the awesome view from our hotel window!

On the way home we stopped at Hog Wild from Chicago's Best.

Brisket Sandwich with fries.
Pork Tenderloin Dinner with Oven Roasted Potatoes. The tenderloin is huge and my husband said it was one of the best he's ever had.
Philly Chicken Sandwich.
