Le Petit Triangle Review

I love eating out and that has one of the saddest parts of COVID; all of the restaurants that are having to close and not being able to try out new cuisine. Now with some protocols in place I have been able to go back to one of my favorite restaurants in Ohio City, Le Petit Triangle.

This french cafe, is situated in the Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland. I had been there one other time and absolutely adored it. It is a great place to stop and meet a friend, grab some coffee (or hot chocolate), or sit and enjoy a delicious meal. Their menu offers some great french classics like chocolate croissants, crepes, and escargot. The escargot is on the ‘HAVE to get list’. It is perfectly buttery with the right amount of garlic, paired with a crunchy baguette, 6 just does not seem enough.

Le Petit also offers brunch, lunch, and dinner menu’s. While eating with a friend, we split the sandwiches that were offered. I had the Bacalao “Benedict” which features the salt cod potato cakes, their house-made biscuits, fried eggs, and roasted potatoes. The salt cod potato cakes were a bit too salty for me, but that’s what trying new food is all about! We also had the Biscuit & Andouille Gravy which also featured the house-made biscuits and the most delicious gravy on top. If you do not like french food, please go solely for the biscuits and potatoes.

Give this perfect cafe a try and trust me you’ll be going back for more croissants. Due to COVID, Le Petit also offers take out, so if you are currently in the Cleveland area and unable to go in person, try them out from the comfort of your home!

Michaelangelo’s Winery

This year has been different, we spend more time part, socially distanced. We try to do some of the same things still, eating out at restaurants but it is a little different. A few friends and I decided it was time to have a socially distanced lunch outside at Michaelangelo’s Winery in Richfield, Ohio.

OMG the food is outstanding, you feel like all of a sudden that you have been whisked away to Italy instead of being stuck in Ohio. The food is served family style so please bring a lot of people!

Here is what our table ordered and I would recommend it to everyone! Though we did not try the pizza’s I have heard amazing things about them.

  • The Arancini– OMG I mean fried rice balls with cheese, it’s not hard to mess up. I would highly recommend these! It is a crowd pleaser that everyone would love.
  • Calamari – This fried calamari comes with a lovely sauce that is drizzled across. Top it off with a fresh lemon squeeze, it’s *Chef kiss* perfecto
  • The Charcuterie Plate – Cheese, crackers, and a bit of dried meat. That’s really all I need to be happy so that’s all you should need too!
  • Short Rib Pappardelle – This pasta is amazing, the thick noodles are to die for, and they are house made! The pasta is topped with fresh peas that add this perfect snap in every bite. Along with bacon, parmesan, and of course melt in your mouth short ribs.

We tried a variety of wine as well that were all delicious. The wines seem to change based on the Season which I love, that way you are getting the best ingredients and flavors.

If you get the chance and want to spend a Saturday or Sunday enjoying great flavors and atmosphere, I would recommend stopping by Michaelangelo’s. They also have an amazing bakery section that I did not get to check out and am still regretting it.

Always Hungry,
