Zach Salapack was fully confident of his barbecue skills when he opened Sublime Smoke in his hometown of Bolivar in July 2014. He’d already had success with a BBQ food truck in Columbus, where he’d lived since graduating from Ohio State University. When his wife Aimee was offered a teaching job in the Canton area, Salapack began thinking seriously about opening a brick-and-mortar barbecue restaurant in the area. He found an old storefront at 110 Water Street SE in downtown Bolivar, whose previous tenants had included a general store and a speakeasy.
With a location in Canton and another in North Canton, El Rincon is the perfect pick for chips and salsa and a margarita on a hot summer day. The menu is overflowing with traditional Mexican fare. Stop in soon.
I have to respect a restaurant that embraces its identity. People flock to the Winking Lizard for beer and bar food, and the restaurant is excellent at both of those things. With the exception of rotating seasonal menus, the menu doesn’t stray too far from those basics.
Robin Muntean has cherished childhood memories of Saturday shopping with her family in downtown Canton and wintertime skating on the downtown rink. “I’m a big part of bringing Canton back,” said Muntean, who bought the downtown Italian staple Arcadia Grille at the beginning of 2019, after working there for 17 years as a waitress, cook and manager. The Arcadia’s website said it has been in business for more than 85 years.

It’s probably a good thing that Shy Cellars is so far out of my way. The intimate Strasburg eatery is nearly perfect with delicious food, wonderful service and possibly the best dessert I’ve ever eaten. If it wasn’t an hour from home, I could see myself spending way too much money way too often.
A handsome Victorian house built in 1901 houses one of the liveliest lunch spots in Canal Fulton in its former living room. The Dragonfly Tea Room, which opened in 2011 at 116 Canal Street S, is popular for its menu of what owner Tiffany Craney calls “Southern tea house cooking.” The cozy setting, with lace curtains and loads of teapots, has plenty of period charm. And the Dragonfly offers popular monthly events for kids.
