Overlooking the Cuyahoga Valley and downtown Cleveland on the edge of Tremont is an often over-looked gem of a restaurant--Sokolowski's University Inn. This family-run restaurant, in business since 1923, specializes in Polish and Eastern European food and highlights include pierogi, kielbasa and their home-made soups. The atmosphere is casual; you have to go through the line to get your food, but you'd be challenged to find better (or more authentic Cleveland) fare anywhere in the city.
Sokolowski's is open Monday through Friday for lunch and Friday and Saturday for dinner.
