Graeter’s Coming to Pittsburgh, Cleveland This Summer

The first Pittsburgh-area and Cleveland-area Graeter’s scoop shops will be open sometime this summer. The Pittsburgh store will be located at 10610 Perry Highway, in the north suburban community of Wexford, about a 20-minute drive from downtown Pittsburgh. The address of the Cleveland store is 261 Main Street, in the city of Westlake, about 25 minutes west of downtown Cleveland. Word is they’re also opening a second Chicago scoop shop this summer. Tomorrow, June 17th, an 11th Columbus, OH area Graeter’s will open, debuting a new store design and updated Graeter’s branding. Yep, Graeter’s is on the move!

Top 9 Pierogi of Cleveland

You want to eat like a Clevelander while you’re in Cleveland? Then count on eating pierogi! There are plenty of places around town to sample the Eastern European stuffed dumpling, but why not start with the best? Here are the top nine Cleveland pierogi, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. Among them: Sokolowski’s University Inn (“you can’t go to Sokolowski’s and skip the pierogi”), Perla Pierogies in Parma (“Perla’s Pierogies are rock star”), and the Little Polish Diner of Parma (“ridiculously good”).

Top 20 Food Cities in the U.S.A.

The list is presented by Travel + Leisure, and chosen by their readers, as the best “food snob” cities but it doesn’t appear that any sort of pretentiousness is part of the equation. These seem more to be the 20 cities for people whose primary travel activity is eating, and that includes us. The list begins at #20 with Seattle. Louisville, at #16, gets recognition for the Hot Brown sandwich invented at The Brown Hotel. #15 New Orleans (#15! Wow!) topped the survey for fine dining, like Brennan’s, and sandwiches, such as the great ones served at Parkway Bakery. NYC is #10 and Cleveland (!) is seventh. Best food city in the U.S.? Houston!
