Cleveland: Stunning Burgers at The Greenhouse Tavern

Daniel Zemans 7 comments

Few will seriously dispute the claim that The Greenhouse Tavern is one of the best restaurants in Cleveland. And the build-your-own four-course meal might be the best value I've experienced at a higher end restaurant. If you're fortunate enough to check out chef Jonathan Sawyer's downtown establishment, it's definitely worth exploring the menu as much as possible, but passing over the burgers would be a huge mistake.

Cleveland: If Michael Symon Weren't Already a Celebrity, B Spot Would Make Him a Star

Daniel Zemans 39 comments

Michael Symon had already made it as a serious culinary and television star before he opened B Spot, his fast casual burger mini-chain in his hometown of Cleveland. As far as I'm concerned, these burgers are his crowning achievement. More

Robyn Lee 5 comments

This past weekend was the sixth 2011 National Hamburger Festival in Akron, Ohio. This video from WEWS shows some highlights from the festival, namely deep-fried cheeseburgers (chef Scott Burford of Metro Burger described it as a combo of cheeseburger and funnel cake) and a bobbing-for-burgers contest where contestants bobbed as many burgers as they could in three minutes out of a kiddie pool filled with ketchup.

Cincinnati: Terry's Turf Club, the Brightest Burger Spot in the City

An AHT Field Agent 9 comments

Rarely does a Cincinnati restaurant inspire enough passion for locals to willingly wait in line to eat. For the past few years, Terry's Turf Club, which sits on a desolate stretch of Eastern Avenue not far from the Ohio River, has been the exception. Most everyone comes (and waits) for the burger. They wait in lines spilling onto the sidewalk, where on cold days a roaring overhead heater (which will slowly roast your brain if you stand under it for too long) provides temporary solace from the elements while boisterous crowds drink oversized Belgian beers, bottles of Bud Lite or blackberry cosmopolitans.
