Crop Bistro Owner and Chef Steve Schimoler

Chef Steve Schimoler, the owner of Crop Bistro & Bar - located across the street from the West Side Market in Ohio City - stops by our ideastream studios with some fresh ideas on turning that tired turkey and leftover side dishes into tasty treats.

And if you happen to stop at Crop Bistro for lunch or dinner there’s a chance that you might be participating in a little research. A portion of the basement is actually a lab where some serious science takes, testing out new products, creating new dishes and ultimately improving the dining experience.

Plus, we stop by Cleveland’s oldest market, the West Side Market. Its origins date back to 1840, when two men gave Ohio City a piece of land at the corner of what is now West 25th and Lorain, with the agreement that it always be kept as a public market. In 1902, the city purchased the land across the street from the original market, and ten years later, the new West Side Market opened, where it still thrives 100 years later.
