Watching Iron Chef Michael Symon compete (and rack up the wins) on Food Network and do his thing on The Chew, you very quickly get the sense that this Cleveland-born chef has the cooking chops to back up the air time. His flagship restaurant Lola (relocated from its original Tremont location to downtown Cleveland, and helmed by executive chef Joe Swan) is not a good restaurant, it’s a great one. You can expect the meat-centric fare that Symon is best-known for (bone marrow, beef cheek pierogi, venison, pork shank, you get the idea), but it’s all served with a delicate touch. Take for example, a fried pig’s ear and watermelon summer salad offered on a tasting menu a few years ago — memories still linger. -- Arthur Bovino

The Beef Cheek Pierogi on the appetizer section is so ridiculously good that i'd just get three orders of it for my meal. Someone tell Symon to up the portions and serve it as an entree.

What's not to like? I can vouch for the pork belly and the calves heart, as well as the hanger steak. Great service, great food!

Chef Michael Symon's spot can't be beat. No matter what you get, finish it with a 6AM Special. You won't regret it. #finedining

The Pork Shank was so delicious and tender. It just fell off the bone. The Pork Belly was a little overcooked for my liking. Their wine selection is great! Well worth the prices.
