Michelson & Morley

‌‌‌An American-style upscale bistro with full bar, patio and private dining room. The menu, created by chef Tony Smoody who also heads Cleveland Botanical Garden’s kitchen, highlights local and seasonal fare. In addition to the regular menu, Michelson and Morley offers a happy hour menu, Monday - Friday, and a pre concert prix fixe menu for just $29.

The restaurant name is a result of a student contest and honors the Michelson-Morley experiment that took place in 1887 at the Case School of Applied Science and nearby Western Reserve College. This collaboration resulted in the awarding of the Nobel Prize in physics to Albert Michelson in 1907 and the findings initiated a line of research that eventually led to Einstein’s theory of relativity. For more information, please call 216.368.0801.
