If Cleveland has become a distinguished dot on the country's food map, The Greenhouse Tavern, helmed by chef Jonathon Sawyer, has a lot to do with it. Although he's cooked to acclaim in Miami and New York, Sawyer chose to open his eco-minded restaurant in his hometown. One of the most popular starters on the menu is the chef's revival of the British pub snack devils on horseback. He stuffs each date with dark chocolate, jalapeño and almonds before wrapping it in bacon and roasting it to the perfect sweet-salty-spicy bite. We'll be damned if you can eat just one.
