Adams Street Cafe
608 Adams Street Toledo, OH | 419-214-1819
Menu Recommendation: They smoke all of our meats in-house.  From sandwiches to salads to entrees, everything they prepare is made fresh right here in Toledo. Try their brisket tacos, or their Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich with house made sauce, with pickles on a brioche bun!

Benchmark Restaurant
6130 Levis Commons Blvd., Perrysburg, OH | 419-517-1104
Menu Recommendation: They set the new standard here in Toledo! Whether its steak or seafood, you are sure enjoy their menu, and the whipped feta appetizer just melts in your mouth!

Element 112
5735 N. Main Street, Sylvania, OH | 419-517-1104
Menu Recommendation: Element 112 is a restaurant taking inspiration from French bistros. Dishes are inspired by French cuisine and the chef's creative culinary whims. We recommend the French Dip which includes wagyu top round, peppers, swiss, horseradish aioli, caramelized onions and sauce au jus.

Georgio’s International Café
426 N. Superior St., Toledo | 419-242-2424
Menu Recommendation: Lobster Bisque and Liver Pate with baked bread. Both are a menu staple since Georgio’s inception back in 1986.  The bisque is very light with exceptional flavor that beckons you to order a bowl.  The liver pate is the best around, pair it with their homemade bread and you’ll be in heaven!

Kengo Sushi & Yakitori
38 South Saint Clair St. Toledo, OH | 419-214-0574
Menu Recommendation: They are a 26-seat Sushi & Yakitori restaurant created by Kengo Kato. Featuring a small bar along-side the open kitchen, guests are invited to enjoy a few sticks of yakitori and a beverage while waiting to sit down. Try the sushi and you won't be disappointed, if you have time to spare, reserve the Omakase dinner for a 12 course experience you won't forget!

Registry Bistro
144 N. Superior, Toledo, OH | 419-725-0444
Menu Recommendation: Woman owned Registry Bistro has so much to offer. They are not only a restaurant but a venue for events and art to exist in tandem. They have unique dishes like a slow roasted Moroccan lamb shank, or their shareable boards you can pair with hand selected wines.

Souk Mediterranean Kitchen & Bar
139 South Huron, Toledo, Ohio | 567-777-7685
Menu Recommendation: Chef and Owner, Moussa Salloukh, brings a melting pot of Mediterranean cuisines to the Warehouse District of Downtown Toledo. The menu changes seasonally, but the soups and salads are scrumptious all the time, and don't miss the squid ink lobster ravioli and other delicious pastas!
