While we do write a lot about real estate, on occasion we always like to share local hot spots with our readers.

A few nights ago we went to Solon's newest restaurant, Harvest Kitchen and Lounge, and were thoroughly impressed. While we are certainly not food critics, we have been to most of Cleveland's finest restaurants over the years and like to think we have very good taste.  We had a very positive experience at Harvest, will definitely go back,  and would highly recommend it to others.

Now, I'm not going to get into the particulars of what we all ate, but everything was fantastic. The appetizers, main course, and dessert ( the bread pudding is the greatest thing ever! ) were all top notch and made to perfection.  There was something on the menu for everyone, including the 2 vegetarians at our table.

In addition to the food, the atmosphere was great as well. Located on Bainbridge Road in the heart of Solon, it certainly seemed like the place to be by all the movers and shakers in town. There were many large parties, several couples having an intimate meal together, and others just hanging at the bar.

Overall, we are thrilled to have fine dining available here in Solon at Harvest Kitchen and Lounge and wish them great success.
