People can sample of a variety of Mentor’s cuisine by going to Taste of Mentor, Presented by ERIEBANK, which usually takes place on the third Wednesday in April each year. This showcase allows participants to sample food from some of the Mentor area's finest restaurants. In 2016, we had over 350 attendees taste twenty-one different restaurants featuring appetizers, entrees, and desserts!

A panel of attendees from the Mentor community sample the cuisine and evaluate the presentation and display from each restaurant. Winners are then announced after votes are counted.

Our 2016 Winners are:

Best Appetizer: Euclid Fish Company (Honorable Mentions: Cater to You and Pastina)

Best Entree: Jimmy's Backyard BBQ (Honorable Mentions: Game of Mentor and Max & Erma's)

Best Dessert: Confectionary Cupboard (Honorable Mention: Melt Bar and Grilled)

We're looking forward to Taste of Mentor 2017!
