Restaurant:

Fahrenheit

2417 Professor Ave
Cleveland, OH, United States

"Fahrenheit was a run-away hit the moment it opened its doors in 2002. But even its rising star chef Rocco Whalen could not anticipate the heat he would generate with his Tremont gem. After a very short year of wowing its guests and the press, Rocco took over the vacant space next door to add 50 more seats. His success should come as no surprise. Whalen spent several years cooking for the master, Wolfgang Puck, at three of his restaurants-Obachin in Phoenix, Granita in Malibu and Spago in Las Vegas. When the Cleveland native returned home at age 25, he had the skills to make huge culinary statements."
