“An endless procession of chefs voice devotion to sustainable agriculture. Few Northeast Ohio restaurateurs exhibit so finely honed a commitment to farm-to-table cuisine as the Bebenroths.” – Joe Crea, Dining Editor, Northeast Ohio Media Group
At Spice, orders for “the usual” have been replaced by requests like, “I’ll take whatever’s growing.” Our food and drink menus change seasonally, and our daily specials are created with just-picked ingredients from Spice Acres, our farm in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
To Chef Ben Bebenroth, buying local is all about supporting independent growers who are strong stewards of our land. Our goal is to source at least 80% of all ingredients from small family farms practicing sustainable forms of agriculture within a 150-mile radius of Cleveland. Our revenue is kept within the community, not spread among a national corporate franchise, to help build momentum toward the revitalization of our city neighborhoods.
For you, this means fresher, nutrient-dense ingredients that you can trust, prepared from scratch by classically trained chefs.
Located at the gateway to Gordon Square Arts District, about 10 minutes west of downtown Cleveland, Spice also offers creative indoor and outdoor special events spaces for those seeking a new celebration destination.
Thank you for supporting the vibrant, local food scene that we love! We invite you to contact us with inquiries and feedback.
