I’ve mentioned it before, but we’re so lucky to have the Sawyer’s in Cleveland and their latest restaurant – Trentina. The setting and food are above extraordinary and now Chef Sawyer is asking us to “take back” our lunch hour. What’s that mean exactly?
It means feasting on items such as:
Red Basket Market Salad (parmesan, bagna cauda, wood-fired almonds, and bread crumbs), Oysters on the Half Shell with Prosecco mignonette and apple, Ravioli Charcuterie (a butcher’s grind of wood-fired pork and beef, sage leaf and breadcrumbs), Focaccia Deluxe (soft cheese, charred eggplant, herbs, and spice), Chicken Boudino Bianco (roasted grapes, rice, escarole, and cranberry bean) and Olive oil gelati.
Tell me that doesn’t sound to die for.
My coworker Kim and I were able to scoot out on Friday for a longer lunch and take in the atmosphere and sample some of the amazing food that will be offered on the lunch menu. We were both impressed to say the least! I’m already excited to schedule a few client lunches at the location, or to schedule a longer lunch date out with friends on a Friday.
And you are in luck…prior to the official opening, Trentina will be hosting a soft opening, this Friday featuring complimentary beverage service, along with Dolce and Grazi courses on the house. Guests interested in enjoying the soft opening lunch can make a reservation on OpenTable or call 216.421.2900.
