Table 45 Restaurant and Bar is a cosmopolitan dining concept in the heart of Cleveland at the InterContinental Hotel, only minutes from downtown and University Circle. A Zack Bruell concept. Table 45 menu in Cleveland goes to Cuba, Morocco, Portugal and more By Debbi Snook, The Plain Dealer Chef Matthew Anderson spent four years of Coast Guard duty in the Caribbean, often docked at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. He was the 70-foot ship’s cook when they made kitchen supply runs to Jamaica and other islands, but he never once got into civilian Cuba. “If we left the base we’d be shot,” he said of his tour in the early 1990s. “And if anyone tried to come in, they’d get shot, too.” Anderson, 45, is finding some irony in one of the projects of his new job as chef de cuisine at Zack Bruell’s Table 45 at the InterContinental Hotel in Midtown Cleveland. He’s developing the menu for a new global dining tour and contest at the property on the Cleveland Clinic campus. Each month, one cocktail, one appetizer and one main dish will reach for inspiration to another, less-explored cuisine. Morocco, Israel, Portugal, Ethiopia, Peru, Taiwan and Yucatan are among […]

The Fahrenheit menu, says Chef Rocco Whalen, is “contemporary American regional cuisine.” It is Rocco’s Asian insinuations that make this fare uniquely his own. The menu is so imaginative and distinctive youll not find anything else like it no matter where your travels take you. Each and every day, Chef Whalens mind is crammed with new food creation ideas so that Fahrenheit has taken to changing their menu every six weeks to accommodate as many as possible. Indeed, some items hang around from menu-to-menu to appease the regulars who have their long-standing favorites. And because Rocco uses only the finest and freshest ingredients available during any particular season, sometimes the menu varies more greatly than others. This, to Roccos way of thinking, is the only way to cook: always fresh, never frozen, prepared from scratch with most of the ingredients coming from local and regional farms.
