L'Abatros scores Bon Appetit mention
In its feature "Best Daily Specials in America" Bon Appétit recognizes L’Albatros Brasserie and Bar for its Shrimp Scampi with Quick-Preserved Lemon and Fennel on Polenta. The article says: "L’Albatros brings a taste of France to Cleveland’s University Circle neighborhood. Cassoulet, bouillabaisse—and even escargot—show up on the menu. But the restaurant also dabbles in other regions of the world. There are pizzas, a burger, and this delicious take on shrimp scampi, and American classic."

I raved about the cassoulet at L’Albatros last February, when readers of this blog got a preview of that same excellence. (Rather than look through the archives you can go there directly by clicking on http://tinyurl.com/2epy3ur)
