With big windows opening onto leafy Occidental Park, light-filled Cherry Street Public House invites lingering, whether you’ve come for a cup of coffee, a filling plate of Persian stew, or an adult beverage. Expect some seasonal ingredients to make their way into the dishes crafted by chef Noah Gough.
Roll up your sleeves for Mean Sandwich’s creations, messy and loaded with astutely-paired ingredients. There’s the flagship sandwich of thick-cut corned beef, pickled red cabbage, yellow mustard, mint, and maple syrup, and one hell of a vegetarian option involving eggplant, beets, hummus, and harissa. Of-the-moment specials are always enticing, and you must get the fried potato “skins and ins” on the side.
Cozy Ravenna Brewing is a welcoming neighborhood hangout. The taproom looks down into the tiny brewhouse, whose proximity fills the entire space with the heavenly smell of wort. There’s a strong lineup of food trucks on site, a crowler fill station, and an up-and-coming tap list that tells you what’s next out of the fermenter so you can strategize accordingly.
