As I travel to random places like Canton, OH I have the opportunity to go to some really crazy restaurants. The best of the best has been Brenners steakhouse in Houston.
It’s an expensive place but the food is amazing. I think the bill for two ended up being around $130 with only a single glass of alcohol. Way too much for me except for absurdly special occasions. There was another place in South Bend, Indiana that was excellent and cheaper but the name is escaping me at the moment.
This past weekend Sander and I hit up another place that might make it onto the list. It’s called Crave and it’s in Akron, Ohio. Our two entrees themselves were a little too shmancy. But the appetizer of skewered steak with a smoked Gouda fondue… daaaang. It was good enough to throw the restaurant into the network of great eats.
Eventually, I think it might be fun to write all those restaurants down and have a ‘best in the region’ and ‘best local’ collection of restaurants for those places that I visit on business. It’s way more fun to explore the unique restaurants then to go to TGIFridays and the like. Are there any restaurants that totally blow your mind in your region?
