Best Italian food that I have found ANYWHERE in the world is at Carmines! My favorite is the Pepper and Sausage Parmesan. Huge portions, get there VERY early as it is always packed. The Carmine experience is worth the wait. -Joe E.
Best Bakery is at the corner of 51st & 7th, can't remember the name but they make the very best HOMEMADE canolies. Joe E.
Rent a car for the night (usually only $12-15.00 per day thru www.monkeybizcarrental.com or Pro-Diems rental car connection) down to Venice Beach and eat at C&O Trattoria. Wonderful Italian restaurant, incredible food, cheap! They pass around sheet music and everyone sings Dean Martin songs etc! -C. Reel
RJ's Rib Joint - Great Barbeque! On Beverly Hills Drive past Wilshire 1 1/2 blocks on right - C. Reel
When laying over in North Olmsted by Westfield Mall walk down Great Northern Blvd (a very short walk from the Radisson Hotel) to Frankie's Pizza. Frankie's has been a favorite family owned and run Italian restaurant there for years & years. Awesome pizza and the house salad with its mozzarella & kind of a sweet sour dressing are awesome!
