Read the letter and tell us what you love about Cleveland
Chef Michael Symon, owner of Eton Plaza's B-Spot and other area restaurants, showed a little emotion and a lot of Cleveland pride in a touching love letter to Cleveland for The Huffington Post today. Raised in North Olmsted and a graduate of Lakewood's St. Edward High School, he reminisces about places all over the area: I remember when I was young and I would spend my entire weekends with you and my grandfather: heading to the Eastside and staying with my grandparents; taking the rapid Downtown; shopping at the Westside Market with all its fabulous aromas of smoked meats and baked breads. It is here I found my true love for food, for going to the historic Terminal Tower to pick up my Grandma at Higbees and heading back east to cook split …

Chef's wife blasts kids menus in blog post
Who could hate the kids menu? Smaller portions, kid-friendly food, cheaper prices. What's not to love? According to Amelia Sawyer, a lot. Sawyer, the wife of Cleveland chef and restaurant owner Jonathon Sawyer, blasted kids menus in a post on her blog, Chef's Widow. She was inspired by a Facebook post by her friend, Iron Chef Michael Symon, who said children should eat the same food served to adults when dining out, because it would make them more open and adventurous eaters, and it was healthier than standard kids menu fare. Sawyer said many kids menu items are "the most UNHEALTHY thing you could ever order for your child." She then posted nutrition information about some kids menu items at popular chain restaurants. Some of the …

Iron Chef Michael Symon scores with his Crocker Park eatery
Like many Westsiders, I was thrilled to learn that Cleveland celebrity chef Michael Symon was bringing his burger joint B Spot to Crocker Park. The restaurant at 20 Main Street in Westlake joins locations in Woodmere and Strongsville that serve gourmet burgers, bratwurst and a wide assortment of beers. We went on a Monday night and waited about a half an hour— less than the 45 minute wait we expected. B Spot opened last week, so I was not surprised that we had to wait. The décor is cool and casual, with a large patio and plenty of seating. A large bar fills the middle of the restaurant, and if you have a small party or don’t want to wait, you can grab a seat there if one is available. While we were waiting, we heard the staff mention that …

Announcement comes four months after Symon closes Bar Symon.
Four months after pulling Bar Symon out of Towne Center in Avon Lake, a Crocker Park representative announced Michael Symon will open the popular B Spot restaurant in the shopping center. The burger joint will open this summer in the location occupied by Agave Tequileria and Cocina at the north end of the shopping center. "We have a great existing relationship with B Spot," said Tom FitzSimmons, spokesman for Stark Enterprises, which handles leasing at Crocker Park.
