Our Bistro

cropbistro 042

One of America’s top restaurants (according to Zagat)…Cleveland’s best restaurant (according to Cleveland’sScene)…and winner of the 2012 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, Crop Bistro & Bar is located in the heart of Cleveland’s historic Ohio City neighborhood, and features a menu of modern American cuisine, built upon foundations of flavor, freshness, and invention.

A project of well-seasoned Chef and food professional Steve Schimoler, Crop was originally imagined as a laboratory for Chef Steve’s cutting-edge culinary research – a Customized Restaurant Operations Platform, if you will. Today, that concept has expanded into a casually elegant showplace for Steve’s relentlessly inventive fare.

Relying heavily on local foodstuffs culled from the region’s small farmers and artisanal producers, the menu is a celebration of contemporary craftsmanship, focused on intense flavors, top-quality ingredients, and a heaping helping of culinary whimsy. Like the harvest, the dishes change frequently, to best utilize all that is fiercest, freshest, and most fabulously delicious.
