WOW really. One would assume that local restaurants would get recognition based on flavor and taste. For best vegetarian you should have tried Treehuggers Cafe in Berea. Check out their website and reviewes. Give the family owned new restaurant a try, next time.

Eat'n Park for Best Cheap Eats? Pathetic. Are these winners based on ad buys? I'd rather eat dog food than Eat'n Park.

Best Indian by far I've had in Cleveland is a new place on Euclid Ave. in University Circle, between Mi Pueblo and the Euclid Tavern called Indian Flame. It's clean and the food is fresh, homemade, authentic and absolutely delicious. I wish more people knew about this place to keep it in business. Way better than Saffron Patch, but much more casual. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed. They do take out as well.
