The long awaited episode of No Reservations, where Anthony Bourdain dines in Cleveland, aired last night. It was funny, it was clever, it made Cleveland food, quite rightly, look very tasty.
Even though the West Side Market segment was a wee bit shorter than I would have liked.
And there were a few too many shots of Decrepit Cleveland.
And they didn't go to our two Cleveland favorites, Slyman's and Stevenson's.
And ... Skyline Chili?!? Really? I had to side with Michael Ruhlman here and grimaced at the spaghetti-weak chili-cheese dish. And correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that more of a Cincinnati thing, and not a Cleveland specialty? And Cincinnati is completely different from Cleveland. One is in Ohi-uh, and the other is in Ohi-oh. See? Not the same city at all.
But we are plotting a visit to the Sausage Shoppe soon.
