Burrata is a soft Italian cheese made from cow’s milk. This decadent cheese is a smooth crust wrapped around a creamy and buttery center. When opened, the creamy interior appears with a soft taste. Don’t miss the chance to try truffle burrata pizza from Flour Italian Kitchen, burrata platter from In Forno Pizza or burrata salad from Il Venetian.
Vegetable and fruit skewers
Skewers aren’t just for meat! A healthy and family-friendly snack, try the next skewer loaded with fruits or vegetables. For brunch, Yelp Elites love their grilled fruit skewers with Pioneer’s vanilla Greek yogurt and honey. For dinner, grab an eggplant or a shichito pepper skewer from Bar Oni Izakaya.
Banana bread brings the fall atmosphere around Cleveland with its sweet flavor and muted undertones. This rich food can accommodate any dietary restrictions to complete the perfect brunch. The Juneberry Table’s gluten-free banana bread is sure to be a popular lunch starter, while Floressa’s vegan banana bread is a delightfully instant plate.
Iced herbal tea
As we transition into the seasons, herbs like sage, rosemary, lavender, mint, and more are having a moment of fall. You’ll want to sip Edda Coffee Roasters Rosella Tea made with hibiscus, lemon and licorice root, or Lulo Kitchen’s refreshing lavender and iced herbal tea.
Abori sushi is grilled quickly with a blowing torch, resulting in a unique taste that is perfect for fall. Aburi translates to “flaming with flame” and comes in limitless opportunities for innovative dishes. In Sora, sushi mizumi is served with seared salmon and gold foil. At SASA, scorched island sushi features spicy toro and unagi sauce.
