"Table" Dining

You don't run across many fine-dining restaurants owned by hospitals, but the Cleveland Clinic Foundation definitely hit it right with Table 45. Voted one of the “Top 20 Best New Restaurants” in the United States by Esquire Magazine, costing (some say) $12 million to design. The space is divided into five "zones" allowing for high-end dining or a casual bite at the counter, the space is sleek, polished, and very cool. The blond-wood bar buffed to a low sheen with leather-covered curved metal chairs is a fun place for happy hour as well.

Chef Zachary Bruell has never been more versatile, drawing on global influences in dishes like his homespun bowl of Vietnamese noodles and veal meatballs. When you make a reservation, gather five friends and sit at the chef's table in the kitchen, or hide away in one of the curving-glass private rooms...perfect for a romantic evening out...Hint. Hint.
