New Mizu Japanese Restaurant, 60 Boardman Poland Rd., Boardman, Ohio44512

We finally made time to eat here. We waited too long. It was awesome. The sushi was beautifully and expertly crafted and delicious.  The decor was completely updated and remodeled with a full bar. Very modern and contemporary. I didn't get pictures but there are 4 private rooms. With tables where you sit on the floor. The service was fast.  Freiendly and courteous. We will be back. If you are within the Cleveland/Pittsburgh area you owe it to yourself to stop by and experience the amazingly delicious food. Below are pictures of the sushi we ate. Snow Mountain Roll, Youngstown Roll, Howland Roll, Sunrise Roll and Shrimp Ebi. Below that are pictures of the entire Menu.

The old, old China Gate and newer Fuji restaturants in Boardman, OH that closed have since been reopened as Mizu Japanese Restaurant located at 60 Boardman Poland Rd., Boardman, Ohio 44512. Amy, me and our family liked Fuji, up until the end. They have been open for a few months now. We have been drooling over the pictures on Facebook, have heard great things about Mizu and can't wait to try the place out. As soon as we do we'll post a review with pictures of the menu, food and decor.

Lucky's Cafe, Tremont, OH

Like most people, we had no idea Lucky's Cafe existed until we saw it on Food Network's, Diners, Drive-in and Dives. We do not buy into hype created for restaurants on TV shows, but in this case we were completely wrong. We started our day at the Children's Museum in Cleveland, OH. Dominic dug and built at the construction exhibit, shopped at the supermarket exhibit, gave our family a checkup at the doctor exhibit and anchored the weather at the weatherman exhibit. 
From there we went to Lucky's Cafe. We had to call and move our reservation to an hour earlier which they easily accommodated. From the exterior is deceiving; it looks very small but once you open the door it is very busy and very inviting. The barista to the left, waiting area in the middle, seating to the right and rear and kitchen to the back. Within minutes of sitting down we noticed the entire FOH staff working together, greeting tables, serving water and drinks, delivering food. For drinks we had Lucky's Latte, French press coffee and orange Dream Cream. For lunch we had Waffles, Lucky's Reuben, Shipwreck, Biscuit's and Sausage Gravy . Everything was freshly prepared and delicious. Quite possibly some of the most delicious food I have ever had. What Lucky's does with food when expertly prepared is amazing. Thank you Lucky's!
Below are the pictures from our visit. They are blurry because I had to snap the pictures fast before my family started eating.
