So I'm back in the game again after some month's off from cooking and I can truly say that what the Vue is doing as far as food and wine is concerned is definitely top notch.

Chef Rick Carson has put together a menu that appeals to foodie's as much as the meat and potatoes Ohio diner and a great vegetarian tasting menu (changed weekly) if you're into that sorta thing Wink

Very, very fresh local produce (most of which comes from the chef's garden in Huron (check their site...AMAZING QUALITY) and ridiculous proteins and seafood.

Fundamental french cooking techniques tied together with a touch of South American and asian flavors... very refreshing.

The wine list is out of control...check the website.

If you come in make sure you come say hi.

menu looks tight...maybe I can get a crew to ride down that way next month.

looking at the wine list right now...not too bad...not too bad at all...that could be the best going in NE Ohio...I'd have to peep Symon's again, but it's looking good so far.

The California Cabs could use a bit of work, but some definite gems in there. Wink
Might I suggest skipping the overrated joints like Heitz, Insignia, and Opus One. If you want a Cab that will give an orgasm, go with something like the Caymus Special Selection.

Clos du Val, Etude, Shafer & Stag's Leap are all solid as fuck, too.

Pinots: Domaine Serene is nice...wish there were different vintages and/or vineyards for the Siduri (Pisoni, Gary's), Dierberg ('05), and Domaine Drouhin ('03). Ken Wright is rock solid. Nice selection there...

Needs a French selection of Rhone/Chateauneuf du Pape at the very least....SAF could also use a boost...I'd stick in some Hamilton Russell, Rust en Vrede and Columella. Same for Syrah - needs an injection of bottles like Tensley Colson Canyon, Cimicky Autograph....maybe a Novy or Zaca Mesa or Roshambo for the lower end...and a nice Lewis for the big spenders. I also wish there were more blends & a Zin list, but shit, Seghesio & The Prisoner pretty much alleviate those ailments. Spain is lacking, but for AUS there's an Amon Ra '04? Wow. That's sick for Cleveland. All in all I'd say someone there knows what the hell they're doing.

Nice list, man...only drawback is that it's 40mins from the west side, but definitely worth a drive for anyone into real food and wine.

*Shit, I just saw those awards. Well deserved. How is it that I never made it down there?!?! WTF!

You **really** want some company don't you. Let us know when you're working and maybe we can come.

we came away with mixed feelings about the place last night. The appetizers for the wine tasting we went for were just OK (and obviously prepared well in advance), however the bar fare (garganelli pasta, zuchini bruschetta, etc.) we had afterwards was very good, with lots of flavor in both cases. The individual running the front of the house was not the most hospitable person I've ever dealt with at a restaurant, which put a bit of a damper on an otherwise festive evening. the sous-chef responsible for the food, however, seemed really nice and dedicated to his work.

That's putting it mildly.

I'm still debating writing a letter to tell ownership that the manager almost ruined my birthday party. Such a shame.


The rest of the staff was pretty cool though, and the food was mostly good. Of course the company for the evening was the best part.

Not sure as (1) we haven't been back and (2) 1 auxy doesn't work there any more. He is going to be starting at a new restaurant in hudson around the new year, which I'm really looking forward to trying (we live in sagamore hills so we're always looking for good food out our way).

It's right near 77 and Brecksville, unfortunately in what seems to be a dry land for foodies.....there isn't a good restaurant within miles.
