There are 2 if not 3 places to get sushi in CLE. And they give a discount on large orders.

Actually had incredible sushi last night at a catered affair in town.

Color me confused.

I've been there a few times. Have some close friends from there. They used to have a great restaurant that served thebbest prime rib. They also had a good bakery. That closed a long time ago though unfortunately :(

And garbage in NMB is a pain with each family only allowed one big can.

I have two big cans.. one can get as many as they want.

Officially there is a one time $50 fee per extra trash can, just call 311, but like a true DDF member, we got our for free.

So, as an ex-New Yorker

Pros:
-Huge frum community
-Kosher stores, restaurants etc.. all over the place
-Communities, Shuls & Schools to fit any Hashkafa
-Pomegranate
-Basil (Best Kosher Dairy place in the US in my opinion)
-mass transit system
-Lots of activities / attractions

Late to this post, but Basil is not even close to the best place in Brooklyn. I wouldn't go back with their high prices and subpar food. No wonder you're an ex-NY'er ;)

+1. I Agree. I actually just ate in a great dairy restaurant called Siena Cafe. Great food!
