So there’s this spot that I stumbled upon with one of my friends during my lunch break called Town Hall.
Town Hall is hip and current with the menu catering to meat eaters, vegans and anyone in between (like me).
The aesthetic is warm and inviting and the décor looks like a patio. Yes, the décor.
The majority of the walls have brick on them, but there is one accent wall that has grass on it. The chandeliers are rustic and the crowd is alive; you look to the left you may notice a conversation going on, to the right working on their laptops and somewhere in the interim brokering deals. It has its own culture right in the center of Cleveland.
The cost index is about a 3, I would venture into a 4 since I don’t normally spend $20.00 for lunch.
On the flipside the food is good and the menu extensive and tasty. I drank a healthy, collagen infused smoothie and ate vegan tacos, both were fantastic, in addition to the good food and healthy drinks Town Hall also has plethora of alcoholic beverages to choose from and the service is awesome, unbeknownst to me I was sitting right next to the manger. This place is a must visit, if given the opportunity be sure to do so.
1909 W 25th St, Cleveland, OH 44113 – It’s open until 2:30 a.m.

The West Side Market is so much a part of Cleveland’s landscape that I am always shocked to find native Clevelanders that haven’t visited.
The West Side Market has 2 sides, on one side there is fresh produce and on the other meats, pastries, perogies (a nod to Cleveland’s Polish population) and prepared foods.
The food and people are so diverse that you can make a day of people watching. The market also allows the sampling of foods so that you don’t necessarily have to commit if it isn’t appealing to your taste buds.
What lead me to the West Side Market this time is that it’s been about 2 months since I’ve eaten meat and I was feeling tempted so I went to the market determined to find an interesting variety of vegetables and it didn’t disappoint.
I ate a Jicama (which is a Mexican yam bean that proports to help prevent cancer), cactus and mango salad, that because of the acidic base I’d suggest eating as a dip or pairing with sharp cheese. Still it was a taste adventure.
The architecture is simply amazing.
Next time you’re in the neighborhood, come on down to the Market.
