Lola Bistro is chef Michael Symon's flagship restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio. Situated on a popular pedestrian-only street surrounded by bars and retail boutiques, the restaurant sits within 15 minutes walking distance of two of the city's biggest attractions, Progressive Field where the Cleveland Indians play baseball and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Having been named "Best New Chef" by Food & Wine magazine in 1999 and "Best Chef - Great Lakes Region" by the James Beard Foundation in 2009, chef Symon has parlayed his talent and notariety into a culinary empire that includes regular appearances on the Food Network both in capacity of judge and as an Iron Chef, a handful of restaurants, and a couple of cookbooks including his latest release, Carnivore.
