Lunch at Lakeshore Eatery

combined

20130407_124424Some of the best restaurants are found in strip malls.  There are some fine examples of that right here in Lake County.  One of our family’s favorites is Lakeshore Eatery in Mentor.  It doesn’t look like much from the outside but the food and service are top notch.  We are not not the only ones who like this place –  recently they were one of the winners in the Mentor Chamber of Commerce Restaurant Showcase.  You can read about my most recent experience at the Eatery on the Lake County Visitors Bureau web site, Sunday Lunch at Lakeshore Eatery.

20130407_124517Here’s a tip about the Eatery.  On New Year’s eve it undergoes a transformation.  The tables are covered with white table cloths, the servers change from their usual polo shirts and jeans into more formal attire of white shirts/black pants.  That’s when the Eatery holds its annual reservation only, prixe fixe five course dinner special.   It’s an early evening, for those headed out for a big night or for those headed home to watch the ball drop on TV.  Each year Chef John prepares a memorable gourmet meal unlike any served there on a regular day.  Start looking for info on this special night in early December and make your reservations – it’s always a sell out!

    Going to a locally owned diner is a nice change of pace from all of the chain restaurants. The New Year’s Eve dinner sounds fun.
