Table 45 get's a Scene Award
Best World's Tour for the Tastebuds (2007)
9801 Carnegie Ave. (in the InterContinental Hotel), 216-707-4045, www.tbl45.com
Like a glossy travel brochure for the tastebuds, the fare at this sleek, contemporary restaurant on the Cleveland Clinic campus takes guests around the world, with dishes inspired by the most vibrant global pantries. But don't mistake the journey for fussy fusion fare: Each dish remains true to its roots. From tandoori naan to Moroccan tagines to a tongue-in-cheek translation of cowboy 'cue (featuring Kurobuta pork, chipotle jam, and cornbread madeleines), Table 45's smartly designed menu, created by veteran Cleveland chef Zack Bruell, makes a mouthwatering way to eat the world.
