    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

    Lamb Tartine

    At an upscale restaurant, lamb will run you $25 or $30, but Tremont Tap House lets you sample the finer things in life at bar-food prices. Chef Andrew Gorski, who took over Tap House's kitchen about five months ago, keeps costs down on the high-end meat by deboning and breaking down the leg of lamb himself. He roasts it and uses 4 ounces on the new menu's lamb tartine ($14), an open-face sandwich especially popular in Europe. "A sandwich is something you find at every bar," Gorski says. "We're trying to refine some of the food found in a bar." The result is a toasty pumpernickel slice stacked with rich, creamy garlic aioli; vibrant green, peppery watercress; the rare lamb; and a topping of pink, tangy pickled onions. It's a masterful balance of flavors, textures and colors that holds up to fine dining fare. Wash It Down: "Lamb is pretty rich and strong; you need a beer that can stand up to that," says owner Chris Lieb, who recommends a Scotch ale, strong ale or double IPA. 2572 Scranton Road, Cleveland, 216-298-4451,


    'Slo' Boy

    When chef John Bausone began retooling the Beachland Ballroom and Tavern's menu, released in October, he wanted to add a sandwich that would speak to the neighborhood's Slovenian roots. He set out to concoct a traditional Po' Boy by using local sausage from R&D Sausage Co., a shop across the street. He slapped some mustard on it, stuck it in a toasted bun, and stuffed it with Yukon Gold fries and Carolina-style coleslaw. But it was missing something. "In the South, they put barbecue sauce in it," he says. "I tried it with some of my homemade maple barbecue sauce that I mixed with a bit of mustard, and it was great." Dubbed a Slo' Boy ($7), the tasty sweet and spicy sandwich overflows with fries and coleslaw, so it'll really fill you up, too. Wash It Down: To go with this European sausage, Bausone likes the Czech-style Lagunitas Pilsner. 15711 Waterloo Road, Cleveland, 216-383-1124,
