Tri-C’s Cleveland Eats Culinary Festival Announces Participating Restaurants
Thirty eateries will serve dishes at Sept. 15 event on Mall B
Thirty restaurants, caterers and treat makers will dish out their mouthwatering specialties when Cleveland Eats returns Sept. 15 to the Mall B outdoor event space above the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.
Each establishment claimed a spot in the festival’s Culinary Village, where meandering foodies can conquer their hunger by purchasing small plate selections for $5 or less.
“Deciding what to eat may be the toughest decision people make all day,” said Michael Huff, the College’s dean of hospitality management. “I recommend coming hungry, because you’re going to find some of the tastiest food available in Northeast Ohio.”
