2015 To Dine Challenge

Wow, December 1st. How is that possible? How is it possible that I'm getting married in just 12 days?! 2014 seemed to fly by. But, you know what that means...

It's time to start talking about my 2015 To Dine challenge. Each year, I ask you, readers, to submit restaurants that you feel I should visit in the upcoming year. I select 10 from the suggestions, and challenge myself to dine at all 10 over the next 12 months.

So, what's your new favorite spot? Any hidden gems in your neighborhood that don't get enough recognition for their fantastic food? Is there a good dish at a hole-in-the-wall that shouldn't be missed? A new restaurant hitting the Greater Cleveland dining scene that you're curious about? I want to hear about it all!

Leave me a comment below, or tweet me at @BiteBuff, to enter restaurants for consideration. I'll select 10, and announce them at the start of the year. I also accept volunteers to join me on these dining adventures!

Some highlights from 2014 included: Dolce Wraps (we've been back twice), Seoul Garden, and the unique pizza burger from Petti's. As of today, I still need to visit Thyme2 and The Original Steaks and Hoagies. Phat Daddy's closed, so no matter how hard I try in the next couple of weeks, I'll never conclude the full 2014 To Dine list. So sad.

So, where are you sending me in 2015?

Samosky's Pizza. Valley City.

Philly Cheesesteak pizza has won world awards and is seriously amazing. Their Spinochi is a close second favorite menu item of mine.

Cravings Thai is the best Thai food in Cleveland. They expanded their menu recently and the website doesn't reflect it yet.

I've been wanting to go to Biga in Kirtland to try their wood-fired pizza and Oak & Embers for their BBQ so I'm suggesting them for purely selfish reasons. ;)

Also, Choolaah!
