Sokolowski's needs no introduction. Established in 1923, this hearty, stick-to-your-gut, cafeteria-style restaurant is infamous in Cleveland. Locals and tourists alike flock to this Tremont location on Friday and Saturday nights. I'm sure we all wish that they served dinner all week long! At least those in the area can enjoy lunch Monday - Friday.
We popped in there recently, and their delicious mashed yams with melted marshmallows and thick home-made sautéed pierogi reminded me why I love it there (5 for $8.95). The food warms you from the inside out, and you can't help but leave there completed stuffed.
The rustic-looking restaurant is nestled away from the hustle and bustle of other Tremont hot spots. Located off of Abbey Avenue, I think people forget that this gem is hidden over there. So this is just a reminder to head over there some chilly winter day and fill your gut with some of the best "kind of food that grandma used to make" that there is in Cleveland.
