    Erick Trickey
    Felton Thomas, Cleveland’s new library director, is a dynamic leader, but he’s no self-made man. He owes his success to his neighborhood library in Las Vegas and to mentors who helped him at every key moment in his life. Now he wants to do the same for Clevelanders.
  • Silver Spoons: Carbo Lode
    When you’re hungry enough, the West Side Market’s iconic clock tower resembles a tasty baguette reaching toward the sky. (Come on, work with us on this. We were famished.)

  • Silver Spoons: Drink Orders
    James Bond religiously opted for his vodka martini, and Carrie Bradshaw had her cosmopolitan, but would it have killed either of them to switch it up a bit? (Well, maybe for Agent 007.) But it’s less risky for you to stray from your signature drink. Here are a few ideas.
  • Silver Spoons: Finishing Touches
    There’s something about desserts that relieves stress and incites happiness. Maybe it’s the soothing ability of ice cream or the scent of apple pie that takes us back to our childhood. Whatever it is, local chefs know that familiar is good, but a little change can be oh-so-sweet.
  • Silver Spoons: In the Hot Seat
    Watching a chef deftly run a busy kitchen, it hits even the most accomplished at-home gourmet: Wow, I am nowhere near that good. The chef’s table is the foodie’s version of sitting courtside. Here are a trio of places we recommend grabbing an up-close seat.
  • Silver Spoons: Marlin Kaplan
    Interview by Beth Stallings
    Since 1993, chef Marlin Kaplan has opened five Cleveland restaurants and closed three.

If you want to take a pass on the alcohol, never underestimate the power of the always simple but often surprising cup of coffee.
  • Silver Spoons: Soup's On
    To celebrate the balmy temps soon to arrive, we’d like to honor the equally steamy bowl of soup. Wait. What? You’re not up for hitching a ride on the chili train once the buds pop? We’ve found five soups you don’t have to wait until the next blizzard to try.
  • Silver Spoons: The Protein Scene
    The next time you dine out, locavores and carnivores alike can relax and order that 16-ounce rib eye or stuffed pork chop. Area chefs have got your back (mmm ... baby back ribs). They’ve been on the buy-local bandwagon for years, serving up all kinds of meaty entrées hailing from less than 100 miles around.
