Rockin’ The Rust Belt

Long gone are the days when this Midwest industrial city was a mere blip on the culinary radar. Cleveland has two James Beard–winning chefs to its credit, a vibrant music scene, and a craft beer center in Ohio City that rivals any in the nation.

The working-class vibe presents a perfect backdrop to this summer’s Democratic National Convention.
