Cleveland has a new five-star restaurant that is was discovered yesterday on the way to Chagrin Falls for happy hour.  CRU Uncorked = WONDERFUL is a one-word description! Opened by the former CEO of Eaton, located off the beaten path away from the freeway exits, it is nestled at the corner of Som Center road and Chagrin Blvd, yet still close enough to 271/Chagrin exit for out-of-towners. This is our Cleveland's newsest five star restaurant, in my opinion. Sparing no expense and resembling a French chateau or high-end winery, the exterior is not just surface presentation, but an introduction to the delights to be found inside. We enjoyed glasses of Silver

R eally enjoyed a Saturday afternoon visit for lunch and wine/spirits tasting at Gervasi, worth in north Canton. There are 4 areas 1. Bistro, and more casual food 2. Attached is the outside patio with pizza, casual and looking at the water 3. Crush house, more upscale and patios surrounded to eat in our out. 4. Distillery, making gim, vodka and bourbon. There is also a new hotel in addition to the the former villas. We came during a quieter weekend due to a big event at the Football Hall of Fame and it paid off in extra attention. Awesome meal of sinful bruschetta/balsamic/blue cheese covered chips and wrap, work wine tasting. They make about 12 wines.
