Surprise Harvest

Chef Michael Longo's unusual creations spark the interest of suburban taste buds.

"Solon was ready for something like this," he says, referring to Harvest Kitchen and Lounge's menu of sustainable seafood and heirloom breeds of pork. He drew classic inspiration from his 22 years of experience at well-known Cleveland hot spots like Piccolo Mondo and from dishes your grandma might have made. Then, Longo threw in a few surprises that have been, well, surprisingly successful.
