Located in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood, Parralax is Chef Zachary Bruell’s flagship restaurant, with a strong emphasis on fusion seafood and sushi. More than 30 years ago, Cleveland Magazine credited chef and restaurateur Zack Bruell with introducing the area to an emerging west-coast trend of bistro dining and fusion cuisine. Bruell brought the concept from his work with famed chef Michael McCarty of the landmark eatery, Michael’s Santa Monica—a restaurant recognized for influencing dining attitudes throughout North America with its California nouvelle cuisine. Bruell imported the new style to Cleveland, where he opened Z Contemporary Cuisine in Shaker Heights in the early 1980s. Although he eventually sold Z, Bruell’s fans did not forget him. He got back into the game in 2004 with the opening of Parallax in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood. In only eight years, Bruell opened four more fine dining restaurants: Table 45 at the InterContinental Cleveland, L’Albatros, Chinato and Cowell & Hubbard. Bruell also recently opened DYNOMITE, his first fast casual concept. Alley Cat Oyster Bar has joined the Zack Bruell Restaurant Group on the East Bank of the Flats! Exploration in the Cleveland Natural History Museum is also part of the Zack Bruell Group.
