Pinecone Cottage – French Brasserie Afternoon Tea

February 12, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

February, the romance month, seems like the most fitting for French food. When we visit Cleveland, Ohio we love to dine at L’Albatros, a lovely French Brasserie located in the campus of Case Western University Circle. The definition of a Brasserie is an informal French restaurant serving simple, hearty food. This menu is a reflection of our many visits to this unique restaurant.

Travel Tip: The classic Glidden House is our favorite place to stay in Cleveland and is right next to the L’Albatros. This historic, mansion hotel built in 1910, is close to the museums and even hosts some resident ghosts!
Bon Appetit!
Chef Pam
