Why? Taste of the Browns!

On Monday night, Matthew and I went to Taste of the Browns, a fundraiser for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. This event combines two of Cleveland’s favorite things, food and sports, to raise needed funds to help the hungry in our community.

Over 30 restaurants were represented, serving delicious small bites.

Such a great set-up from Deagan’s Kitchen and Bar!

Here are some of our favorites from the evening:

The eggplant rollatini and shrimp and polenta from Corleone’s Ristorante

The sweet potato and chorizo hot cakes from AMP 150‘s new brunch menu

The crab and chorizo chowder from Pier W (loved the contrast of the cold crab salad with the warm chowder)

The lamb meatballs from Bar Cento/Bier Markt

The pork lollipops with pancetta from Cleveland Browns craft services

The pork ravioli with mushrooms and butternut squash from Johnny’s Downtown

The French onion cups from Edwin’s Restaurant (even better that they were bite-sized with no silverware required)

The tacos from Barrio (so smart to have the taco truck outside to give everyone a nibble as they walked in)

And the always delicious rosemary and garlic frites from Sawyer’s Street Frites

So much amazing food! Plus, there were amazing silent and live auction items, plus a wine pull to raise even more money for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

Every dollar raised funds 4 meals for the hungry in Northeast Ohio!

One of the most unique parts of Taste of the Browns is the chance to sit in a quiet stadium, sip some wine, and relax with this view…

This event is nothing short of a touchdown, with fabulous food, great auction items, a cool venue, and a wonderful cause!

***Disclosure: I was asked to help promote Taste of the Browns. In exchange, I received two complimentary media VIP tickets to the event. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
