Crop Bistro & Bar Restaurant Review: Occupying two expansive floors, Crop Bistro & Bar is housed in a space reminiscent of NYC's Grand Central Station's Main Concourse with soaring ceilings, a glittery bar and an 18-person chef’s table that overlooks an immaculate open kitchen. This locale is close to Cleveland’s famous West Side Market so expect lots of local ingredients and daily specials. The menu hints at culinary imagination with an interesting sense of whimsy without pushing the envelope too far. Start with the house-made steamed buns filled with an Asian braised pulled pork shoulder or the chile deviled eggs. Mains are equally inventive: chicken confit, prepared sous vide, over an earthy mushroom barley risotto, or a buttery veal chop served with confit fingerlings. For dessert, we suggest the peppermint cocoa, a rich chocolate cake with marshmallow and peppermint ice cream. Cocktails are both strong and creative, and the wine list is one of the area’s best.
