CLEVELAND -- Senior residents of Riverview Terrace will not have to travel far to enjoy the culinary offerings of Ohio City, as more than 10 restaurants will team up, bringing their signature dishes to them during Neighbor Giving on Wednesday.

Neighbor Giving, led by Ohio City, Inc., Cleveland City Councilman Joe Cimperman and restaurateur Alan Glazen, will provide food and entertainment to seniors living within the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's Riverview Terrace complex.

The event is seen as a means to better acquaint the complex's seniors and a number of local eateries who are helping to reshape and redefine one of Cleveland's oldest neighborhoods.

"A lot of amazing changes are taking place in and around Ohio City and it's being led by a number of innovative and generous restaurants," said Cimperman. "Neighbor Giving is the perfect way to give back to many seniors who call Riverview Terrace and Ohio City home.  These seniors are a key element to the rebirth of this neighborhood and I feel it's time we connect, or re-connect, them to businesses who are working hard to improve the quality of life in Ohio City."

Participating restaurants in Neighbor Giving include:

  • ABC Tavern
  • Bon Bon
  • Crop
  • Dave's
  • Flying Fig
  • Good to Go
  • Great Lakes Brewing Company
  • Humble Pie
  • Light Bistro
  • Nano Brew
  • Nate's Deli
  • Restaurant Orale SoHo

"Neighbor Giving is a perfect example of Ohio City's story. The seniors of Riverview Terrace and the artisan restaurateurs are equal components in the continued growth of the neighborhood," said Eric Wobser, Executive Director, Ohio City Incorporated.

"We are truly thankful for our residents, our businesses, and their collective leadership with Councilman Cimperman for their efforts to build bridges in Ohio City."
