Side Dish: European Union

(New Arrival)

Rocky River:
The French dine with stiff, bubbly drinks at tables close enough to make friends — a style emulated at the new Tartine Bistro. The dining room, lit by antique chandeliers, floats between hardwood floors and a red tiled ceiling. It’s ideal for enjoying an Elizabeth Taylor, one of the bar’s seven specialty cocktails. “We’re trying to find that niche that Cleveland seems to be missing,” says co-owner John McDonnell (the former owner of the Fulton Bar & Grille). Our opening night dinner, paced and portioned like a true European meal, took us from mussels to cod to crème brûlée. 19110 Old Detroit Road, Rocky River, (440) 331-0800
