People can sample of a variety of Mentor’s cuisine by going to Taste of Mentor presented by ERIEBANK on April 25, 2018. This showcase allows participants to sample food from some of the Mentor area's finest restaurants. In 2017, we had almost 300 attendees taste 15 different restaurants featuring appetizers, entrees, and desserts! Each general admission ticket includes 2 adult beverage tickets.

Each year, 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.

Participating restaurants for 2018 include Billy's Martini Bar, CoreLife Eatery, Fourk, Great Harvest Bread, Moe's Southwest Grill, J's Pizza Market, Marion's Mediterranean Restaurant, Noosa Bistro, Euclid Fish Company, Pastina Rustic Italian Restaurant, Melt Bar and Grilled, Longo's/Cater to You, Confectionary Cupboard and more!
