Nine times out of ten when you go to a restaurant, you’re probably going for the food. But if those restaurant walls could talk, what kinds of stories would they tell? Join ideastream’s Lauren Wilson as she travels all over Northeast Ohio checking out some of the craziest and most interesting stories about how these eateries became what they are. Beyond the Dish delivers a new serving the first Thursday of each month on Applause.
We visit a place where dining is inspired by one of the oldest civilizations on Earth.
There's a place in Akron where the atmosphere is similar to the series Downton Abbey.
We visit a place where the owner's passion for art is reflected in his restaurant's name.
We take a road trip to Mike's Place in Kent, Ohio, to get the story on a unique eatery.
Our first stop is Chef Eric William’s Mod-Mex restaurant, Momocho.
