Sterles

argaiv1646

April 12, 2014 Over 5,000 people visited The Cleveland Flea at Sterle’s on East 55th Street in Cleveland, Ohio. The open air market included a variety of vendors selling farm-fresh produce, jewelry, antiques, architectural salvage, vintage clothes, tchotchkes and furniture. By midafternoon the vendors packed up and the lot filled with cars as patrons dined and danced to the music of the Joey Tomsick Orchestra.

In the early ’60s, Frank Sterle designed his restaurant to look like his father’s hunting lodge in the Slovenian Alps. Five decades later, new owner Rick Semersky took on a challenge: how to keep Sterle’s Country House thriving. His answer is a smart mix of modernization and even deeper nostalgia. Semersky expanded the bar and beer list but slimmed down the menu, dropping German and Italian dishes to focus on Eastern European classics such as goulash, paprikash and Slovenian sausage. “We’re trying to awaken not only our older clients, but potential newer clients, to their heritage or new cultural perspectives,” says general manager James Gibson. A 100-plus-seat bier garden now stretches out next to the main building.

The exhibit is made possible with the support by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia.
