Invest in Local Flavors

111 Bistro and The Vue Offer Culinary Delights in Medina County

Investing in our local restaurants isn't difficult because Northeast Ohio is no stranger to great food. From unique concepts across Medina and Akron to Michelin-star restaurants in Cleveland, gastronomic adventures are anything but few and far between. 

Recently, we had the chance to try out two restaurants in the area that have since become regulars on our dinner rotation: 111 Bistro in Medina and The Vue in Wadsworth. Both are owned and operated by local Anthony Scolaro, and bring innovation and expertly crafted menus that highlight fresh and local ingredients.

111 Bistro

This Medina County staple has been emphasizing the value of high-quality, seasonal ingredients since it opened in 2014. 111 Bistro's commitment to using only the freshest and most flavorful ingredients is prevalent in every dish, as menus are adjusted seasonally to highlight the most flavorful fruits, veggies and herbs.

To achieve thoughtfully curated seasonal menus, 111 Bistro works closely with local purveyors and producers. This ensures that the menu is fresh and diverse while highlighting the best ingredients our area has to offer. What's more, is that 111 Bistro supports and empowers its chefs in the creation of innovative dishes that shine light on the flavors of each season. 

At the time of writing this article, we had the chance to sample a few of 111 Bistro's winter menu items. Some of our favorites included the Cranberry Pesto Flatbread starter that's crafted with naan bread, goat cheese, peppadews and marcona almonds; Shephard's Pie featuring braised lamb shank, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots; and the Osso Bucco with beef shank, saffron risotto and tomato demi sauce. Although some of these items may no longer be available on the spring menu — which will likely be out by the time this article goes to print — we have no doubt that a new season will bring new favorites.

The Vue

Anthony and Brian Dolgowicz of Wadsworth opened The Vue in 2023 with the goal of providing an exceptional dining experience to Wadsworth residents and visitors alike. Similar to 111 Bistro, The Vue focuses on quality ingredients and seasonality. This approach is aimed at consistently delivering a unique, fresh and exciting dining experience to guests.

Also similar to 111 Bistro, The Vue exclusively offers dinner service and rotates its menus seasonally to feature the freshest ingredients our area has to offer. Each menu also follows a central theme. The most recent winter menu adhered to the theme of comfort by offering warm, rich and hearty dishes. Eye-catching entrees on the comfort-themed menu included Duck Meatloaf, Roast Half Chicken, Lobster Mac and Pork Tenderloin.
