Best Bites of 2020

As we kick off this new year, I want to reflect back on my best bites of 2020. It may have been more challenging than other years, but we found ways to check out new restaurants and continue to support those that we love. Here is a roundup (in no particular order) of the best dishes in Cleveland that I had last year.

Beef Argentina taco from Half Moon Bakery

Jerk Chicken bowl (Box-it pictured) from Irie Jamaican Kitchen
Sriracha Cheese Curds from Great Lakes Brewing Co.
Almost the entire meal at Zhug, but particularly the Warm White Beans and the Harissa Peanut Hummus
Radicchio salad from Rosso Italia
Sandwich Night carry-out special at The Black Pig
Croissant (and Focaccia and Italian Sandwich...) from Leavened
Flavor Burst from Independence Dairy King
O.G. Roni pizza from Good Meal Jane
Moqueca Baiana from Batuqui
Share some of your favorite dishes that you tried last year in the comments. Any new restaurants that you discovered that you've returned to again and again?

The year wasn't complete crap. We developed some new hobbies, enjoyed a slower lifestyle, focused on what matters most to us, and still enjoyed many wonderful meals and supporting local businesses. But here's hoping there's even more in store for 2021!

I still really want to try... all of these places! Leavened is SO close to me, but I still haven't been, & I've heard nothing but amazing things about both Half Moon Bakery & Irie Jamaican Kitchen. And I've obviuously been to Great Lakes a billion times, but OH, THOSE CHEESE CURDS, OKAYYY.
