I saw that there is a few new stores at the Shops of Fallen Timbers. One is a sports store called Playball INK and the other is a baby clothing store(Lullaby something). I've heard a lot of rumors of another restaurant in the works from several sources. From what I've been hearing The Pub and a Brio Tuscan Grille are two good possibilities. Does anyone know any real truth to this? I would love another good restaurant there, Granite City is one of my favorite places in town to go(especially sunday for their brunch). Everyone keeps saying we need a Cheesecake Factory in town but I personally think that place is overrated.

I hope something is done out there, there are over 20 empty store fronts.
If its the same "The Pub" that's in Rocky River that would be great! I love that place.
This made me look up The Pub and I found out their Cleveland location closed. Apparently I was one of the few people that loved that place.
Levis blows their restaurant selection out of the water. The crappy part about Fallen Timbers is driving all the way out there and the waits are huge, so you have to drive all the way back into town.
Wait slowsol did you mean Levis restaurant selection blows??? All of their restaurants are subpar! I think Levis is actually lacking good quality restaurants. They need a steakhouse there. They closed the best sushi place (Bistro Wasabi), Nagoya may look nice but the food is just ok, I would rather drive to Sakura if I'm going to a Hibachi restaurant. Bar Louie's food is the equivalent to gas station food. Biaggis is ok, I've had some good meals there and really bad ones(more bad than good) They are definitely on the bottom of the Italian restaurant totem pole in Toledo. Just because Levis has more to choose from dosen't mean their selection is better. I live in Pburg so I'm a huge supporter of Levis but I think they could have better restaurants.
I completely disagree.
Biaggi's, Tea Tree, and Sarnie's are all excellent. Bar Louie and Nagoya are also pretty good for what they are. Sakura was good when it opened, but the last time I was there, there crowd looked a little too Jersey Shore/Ed Hardy for me.
Agree to disagree.... Im not a big fan of Sakura either, but i think their food is better than Nagoya. I don't care what people are wearing at a restaurant as long as the food is good and they dont bother me.
I dont think Sarnie, and Pocco Piatti, are subpar, and maybe I have just been lucky because I have never had a bad meal at Biaggi's although I have heard that many times before.
Honestly I can't argue for the Hibachi at Sakura or Nagoya. There is a difference in taste, both are not sub par but neither enthralled me at the same time. I do like the sushi better at Nagoya, but there is better in Toledo.
Agreed that Bistro Wasabi was the best sushi, its a shame they closed. Did anyone try the Baja Roll they had? To this day stil my favorite Maki I've ever had.
Pocco Piatti was great years ago when they centered on true Spanish Tappas, now they're all over the map.
As for Sushi, at LC, the Tea Tree is the place to go.
Never had a disappointing meal or service at Biaggi's. I've always found their food to be top shelf.
Of course, if one is expecting an Olive Garden type experience, Biaggi's is not your place.
As for Poco Piatti, we tried it for the first time last summer after the Levis Commons art fair (a quality event) and found it to be so-so at best. The fresh pita bread was to die for. The fava bean dip was out of this world. Everything else we had was mediocre at best. And the place was dirty. Have had no desire to return.
Biaggi's is our favorite chain restaurant, they were great working with us when we thought my wife had a bunch of food allergies.
Poco Piatti- ok food and somewhat dirty, i got pissed off when they torched off an order of saganaki inches away from my head for the table behind me (swear i smelt burning hair).
j.b.sarnie shop- commercial bread and boars head cold cuts, what's special about that?
