This month’s Taste Test is dedicated to all my fellow coffee addicts out there. You know who you are—slinking into the office, stumbling to the coffeepot, trying not to make eye contact with anyone until you’ve had your first cup.
For our pizza nights, we love Demico’s Pizzeria in North Canton. Not only does it have outstanding pizza (“it’s cheesy, salsa-y and delicious!”—anonymous 8-year-old), but parents will relish in the diverse menu, far superior to that of most carryout pizza joints.
Nobody wants to fall in love with a newly opened restaurant more than I do. After hearing that Willow Bistro on 30th Street in Canton had opened, I quickly headed online to get the scoop. Surprisingly, Willow’s only web presence was a Facebook page—make that two pages.
At last, the wait is over. After nearly a year of curious Facebook fans (now more than 6,000 to be exact) following construction updates and menu teasers, the new Twisted Olive is officially open.
Fall is upon us. Gone are the leaves, and soon will come the snow. The dawn of the holiday season is just below the horizon, like it or not. November leads to planning and shopping for the annual feast where we visit family, give thanks, watch football and eat far too much tryptophan (or so grandma tells us).
Dining out can present many challenges to healthful eating. From portion sizes, to oversalting, there are many ways that restaurants can exploit a perfectly nutritious meal. This month, we searched out healthful options in a variety of cuisines and atmospheres, and what we found was surprisingly delightful.
Opened by the two owners of The Bistro of Green, a popular neighborhood grill now in its ninth year, this second location features a nearly identical menu, bringing an array of seafood, chicken, steaks and homemade pasta dishes to Stark County.
