Visit the Medium Rare website and you’ll find quotations from Henry David Thoreau, Benjamin Franklin, Booker T. Washington, and Abraham Lincoln, who are all American figures associated with honesty, integrity, and humility. In fact, these are values that Medium Rare aims to embody, with its reasonable pricing, straightforward American menu, and unpretentious atmosphere.
Located near the Cleveland Metro stop, just moments from Cathedral Commons, this restaurant can be a convenient spot for a business lunch, post-work drink, or family dinner. The prix fixe menu includes freshly baked bread, a house green salad, and a thick steak along with hand-cut fries for a reasonable price. A carefully curated wine, beer, and cocktail list pairs nicely with the daily offerings, and be sure you don’t miss the dessert options — regulars rave about the carrot cake and apple pie. Brunch service is offered on weekends, too!
