7 Classic Local Eateries That Are Overflowing With History

Once upon a time, a man named Anthony Bourdain visited Cleveland to film an episode of “No Reservations” for The Travel Channel. A well-traveled and intelligent individual, Bourdain took on the city with an eager (and hungry) attitude. He called Cleveland one of his favorite U.S. cities, and his adventurous spirit left many locals inspired. Bourdain, who passed away in early June 2018, discovered what locals already know – that the city is overflowing with history, culture, and, of course, flavor. Those elements flawlessly combine at many local eateries, some of which date back generations.
