The idea behind Cleveland's newest food hub was to bring a more contemporary approach to dining in our city's Asia Town neighborhood. Sheng Long Yu, who has opened a number of popular Asian restaurants in the Cleveland area, including Kenko Sushi, Dagu Rice Noodle, and Shinto Steakhouse in Strongsville, is the mastermind behind this new concept around 8 years in the making. The food hall will have servers but menu items will be ordered on your phone and then delivered to your table. The former National Tire and Battery building, at East 30th and Payne Ave, in which the new hall is housed, boasts 10,000 sq. ft. of space with plenty of seating, a large kitchen, and a room which has future plans as a small arcade. They will feature bao (steamed buns), dumplings, izakaya skewers, bubble tea, and more. Sheng Long Yu will also be moving his Dagu Rice Noodle into the space. Yu's inspiration came from the fact that, in his opinion, Cleveland's Asia Town has some catching up to do in terms of modernization. The food hall is expected open this month, although an official date is not set yet, but keep an eye out because YYTime Food is definitely experience you won't want to miss out on.


This month's feature is a local favorite which is well established within the Cleveland restaurant community. Butcher and the Brewer is located downtown in the East 4th Street District. The area is known for its wide array of dining and entertainment options, and this local brewery provides a unique experience within the neighborhood, offering an excellent selection of craft brewed beer and small sharable plate options. Some of the popular menu items include the beef sliders, the crispy pork belly, spicy patatas bravas (fried potatoes), the bone marrow, and the crispy pork shank. The brew pub occupies a turn of the century building, which was opened initially as a department store, and still retains its original hand carved wooden stair case. They will be celebrating their 10th year in operation this coming September. Their operating hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 4pm-11pm, Friday and Saturday 12pm-11pm, and Sunday 3pm-9pm. On the 17th of February they will have a special event named "Stout It Out Loud" which will feature over 25 brewery's (mostly local) Stout style beers, paired with fresh shucked oysters. Tickets are required and can be purchased for $45 by visiting and searching "Stout It Out Loud."
