Cowell & Hubbard Restaurant Review

: Zack Bruell brought new life to Playhouse Square’s dining scene when he turned one of Cleveland’s most famous jewelry shops into a sleek restaurant. Located feet from the theaters, Cowell & Hubbard offers a French-inspired, modern American menu, which is always evolving. Start with the goat cheese “boursin” ravioli topped with vibrant heirloom tomatoes and zesty pesto. Vegetable tempura is also tasty and served alongside a well-balanced lemon and thyme aïoli. For the main act, we recommend the roasted cod and the spare ribs, and the Latin braised pork served with stewed Anasazi beans and peppers. There are a couple vegan and vegetarian options, too, like cannelloni and tabbouleh cakes, as well as a handful of pizzas; the butternut squash version evokes fall in the most delectable way. For dessert before or after a show, the apple crostata is an obvious choice, while the meringues are an understudy waiting to steal the spotlight. The wine list is extremely well written, with some interesting selections that complement the European flavors found on the plate.
